Dr. Getty~
I want to thank you for sharing your love and expertise with horses in \"Feed Your Horse Like A Horse\"! This book is a staple in my house and i have given it as gifts! My (now 23 year old) Gelding is insulin resistant. I followed your advice (even though my vet was against it)and today my beautiful boy is 150 pound lighter. his cresty neck and fat deposits are gone! It took 2 1/2 years and I am forever thankful and grateful to you!
God Bless You!

Dear Dr. Getty,

Your nutritional book, has been a wonderful resource. Please, let me know how trace minerals are tested in horses. I have my Vet researching this now. Is hair analysis accurate? Thank you, for all your hard work! Patty Christensen

I have a 19 year old Kentucky Mtn gelding that my Vet dx\'d with Cushing\'s approx. 3 months ago and began Prascend daily. He has improved; dropping the long thick hair, weight down as he mostly looked swollen or inflamed really. He seems more alert and happier. I just want to get a tad bit of good weight on him although he isn\'t in bad shape. I know flaxseed is an overall good supplement for man and beast. I am currenlty using up what I have left of Empower Balance by giving only a cup daily, a cup of Timothy pellets and along with his powder scoop vit/mineral supplement from TotalSupplement.com. The Empower recommended daily amount was to give 1-2 lbs daily. But having the supplement and not having to give much to provide what they will utilize and cost effective, decided to finish up what I had left. There are so many products out there and it can get a bit overwhelming at times to know what to feed. I also have a 15 year old Peruvian Paso who doesn\'t have any issues other than he keeps weight on easily and after riding a couple days, he can drop down some. He\'s pretty stable at this point. We are fortunate as well to have good clean prairie hay and I feed the two horses a good 50 lb bale daily. Any suggestions or ideas would be appreciated. Simple is good too! Thank you!

Hello, Doctor!

Yesterday morning, I brought home a 14.3h, 6-year-old buckskin mare, possibly a Quarter Horse cross of sorts. Right now she is barefoot, and I would like to keep her that way. My intention is to trail ride extensively, but practice dressage and reining just to keep her strong and flexible. Eventually, I would like to try some endurance.

Currently, I am feeding a 100-lb, 3-wire bale of Bermuda. I also have rye grass/alfalfa and field grass/alfalfa mixes available to me.

For what I would like to do with her, I am curious what combination of hay I should be feeding. We are slowly working up to getting her in shape and used to the suburbs.

I am also curious as to what feed I should give her. I am interested in Triple Crown Low Starch, Safechoice Special Care, and Renew Gold. Someone has also recommended Enrich by Purina. Any recommendations? She is definitely an easy keeper. I *think* she's a bit overweight and isn't very fit yet. I have a 50# trace mineral block next to a big water bucket. She seemed to like it when I first put it down, but I am not sure how often she licks it.

What about flaxseed? Hemp seed? Black oil sunflower seeds? Coconut oil? Olive oil? Bee pollen? Raw honey? Apple cider vinegar with "the mother"? Prebiotics?

Any recommendations would be very much appreciated!

I really enjoyed your article on "Honoring How Our Equine Friends Are Made: Feed Your Horse Like A Horse!"

We built a round bale feeder to do just that but it was for cattle. We have recently (three yrs) built them for horse as well so they don't rub the manes off the horse. Our customers are concerned because they think they are starving their horse. Now it makes sense that they are 'self regulating' themselves. I'm surprised the health of a horse has so much to do with HOW they eat maybe not so much with WHAT they eat.

Great article!
Thank you,
The Hay Manager

In feeding a supplement or vitamins or grains, may they be feed along with the hay ration? Someone had said in order to keep the nutrients, supplements should be fed separately and at a different time than when feeding hay.

We build automatic feeder that are capable of feeding up to ten times a day. hayhorsefeeders.com. I have talked to a lot of people and sold feeders to some and there has been only one person who feeds her horses four time a day. The rest of us figure twice a day is good. They can't eat when there sleeping. I guess it's never to late to learn something.
Everbody should read "Feed Your Horse Like A Horse". Keep up the good work.
