RECOMMENDATIONS FOR THE MAINTENANCE OF YOUR ADULT HORSE
Weight management program:
Feeding Purina® Equine Adult® horse feed at a reduced rate may
help horses which are obese. Begin by cutting the recommended feeding rate by 10%. Continue
to adjust the rate until your horse reaches the desired weight, then return to the feeding rate that
is recommended for your horse's weight and lifestyle.
Miniature horses and ponies:
Purina® Equine Adult® horse feed is an ideal complete feed for
miniature horses and ponies at maintenance and light work activity levels. For feeding directions
for miniature horses and ponies, please contact your Purina® horse feed retailer, a Purina® Sales
Representative or our Customer Service Department.
In the winter, the amount of feed may need to be increased by 10-15% to offset
the increased calorie requirements of maintaining body condition.
Every horse is unique.
After observing the horse for a period of time, you may want to increase or decrease the daily feeding amount of Purina® Equine Adult® horse feed by up to 10% to obtain desired overall body condition and appearance. Purina® Equine Adult® horse feed may be fed as a complete feed because it is formulated with high-quality roughage. You may feed with or without hay or pasture per directions.
