Draft Horse Nutrition Naturally

I am a pre-vet major at Delaware State University. I am trying to find information to write my term paper on which is due next Wed the 1st week of May. Which I just found out I needed to do a term paper on Monday this week. Any way, my topic is Draft Horse Nutrition Naturally. I have only been able to find two sources. Any suggestion of web sights I should consider? Many new draft horse owners do not understand the different nutrition requirements for draft horses vs. light horses. Since I am a Draft Horse owner myself, I thought this would be a very easy topic to find information on since many people are becoming more involved with our horse "weighing a ton.” Any and all help would be greatly appreciated ASAP.

Where are you from? Delaware

Re: Draft Horse Nutrition Naturally

Hi Melissa,

Well, this forum will give you plenty of information that I believe you'll find helpful. But, you may want to take a look at for some more information. Take a look at Dr. Judith Reynolds' approach to feeding.

Good luck!
