I also have a growing number of recordings on "Teleseminars on Nutrition Topics that Concern You" as well as the new, Spotlight on Equine Nutrition Series -- printed versions of favorite teleseminars.

Re: simplify my feeding program

Hi Felicis,

I recommend you feed two pounds of each, since they've done well with this amount. You can always adjust the amounts as their exercise level increases or decreases.

Dr. Getty
