Some Thoughts on Feeding

Supplementing your horses feeding program can be confusing at best, and downright intimidating at worst. What, other than hay, does my horse need? How much is too much? How much is not enough? Wouldn’t it be nice if you could provide an efficient, healthy program, and do so without wasting money and time? Perhaps you can.

Ability to Reduce Hay Consumption While Feeding Renew Gold™

Q: Horse owners that feed Renew Gold often find that they can consequently feed less hay. It is well understood how owners can reduce other feeds, but what is the explanation for reducing hay as well?
