**Do not feed less than 0.3 lbs oer 100 lbs of body weight per day. If your horse gans too much weight at that minimum feeding rate, then you should replace Smart Edge® Horse Feed with Purina® Enrich Plus® ration balancing feed.
 
Caution
Store in a dry, well-ventilated area protected from rodents and insects. Do not feed moldy or insect infested feed to animals as it may cause illness, performance loss or death. USE ONLY AS DIRECTED
Important
1. Feeding rates will vary with size, age, temperament, health status, forage quality, climate and activity level. Feed at regular times - at least twice daily - with three daily feedings preferred. Let horses feed in a natural position from troughs with large bottoms, placed at normal head height or lower. Do not feed free-choice. Prevent the rapid eating by the horse of any feedstuff.
2. Reduce and/or delay feeding a horse which is hot, excited or showing pain, has fever or diarrhea. Consult your veterinarian if any problems arise.
3. Always feed a minimum of 1.0 to 1.2 lbs per 100 lbs of body weight of good quality, clean hay or the equivalent in pasture.
4. Any feed changes should be made gradually over a period of 7 to 10 days. Changes in the rate of feeding should not exceed 1.0 lb per day for each horse.
5. Have plenty of clean, fresh water available at all times. Provide your horse with access to salt. Maintain an effective control program for internal parasites. Have the horse's teeth examined annually and consult your veterinarian on a regular basis.

For horses sensitive to dietary carbohydrates, please consult with a veterinarian or nutritionist for a recommended diet.
Special Considerations
A 4 lb meal of Smart Edge® Horse Feed supplies a full serving of Outlast® supplement.
