How much do I feed to my horse?
Generally speaking, the following is based on a 450 kg horse. The leaf amount is generally one good handful and the powder or ground herbs are 1 TB. You can feed your horse in several ways;
- Add to feed and dampen down (all feed should be dampen down with or without added herbs). If you wish to have a quicker response to the herbs, it is recommended to place the herbs in a container, add boiling water, let cool and then add to feed.
- Any questions, please use the “Ask a Vet” feature on this website. It is a free service and you will receive a response within 2 business days.
How long is shelf life?
Often when we receive the herbs from our supplier, they will have up to a 5 year shelf life. However, once the package is opened, if not used within a month or so, it must be placed in an airtight container and used within 3-4 months.
When can I expect to receive my order?
On orders are processed within 1-2 business days as soon as payment is received.
Why does my horse refuse to eat the herbs?
Horses are smart and often know what they need. Wild animals have been shown to frequent certain sites to feast on medicinal herbs. Wild sheep have been reported to have over 30 different herbs they use to treat various conditions. The modern horse does not have that chance to forage so it is up to the horse owner to supply his needs. We recommend, instead of covering up the herbs with honey or molasses, contact the “Ask a Vet” and we will try to help you with your choices.
