Summary

Common sense is dispensed with the wisdom of an old hand and the wit and insight of a true storyteller in this latest edition of Rex A. Ewing's handbook on horse nutrition. As enjoyable to read as it is informative, Beyond the Hay Days covers everything from simple hay-and-grain basics to vitamins, minerals and supplements, including the latest word on nutraceuticals (such as glucosamine and MSM), Omega fatty acids, bromelain, and more. You'll learn about the nutritional demands of horses at various ages and levels of activity, from mares, foals and yearlings to older horses; pleasure horses to stallions and performance horses. Handy charts and tables put the information at your fingertips, and helpful formulas for calculating feed rations make this the one equine nutrition book you'll read and refer to again and again.
