Feeding our horses
Horse feeding is, without doubt, a key element in any stud and we care a lot about it at the BRH stud. Recent research suggest feeding with concentrates is one of the many different factors determining developmental skeletal diseases (OCD) in young horses. An excess of concentrates increases the chances of colics. For this reason, many years ago and with the help of professional nutritionists, we designed a concentrate high in energy and protein, but where the first comes from oils and highly digestible components. We also add mineral balancers to the mix, so that the huge development of the babies the last three months of pregnancy finds the needs completely covered.
The combination of this concentrated provided always in small amounts and combined with a varied forage diet (Alphalpha, different kind of hays, straw, etc), makes our youngsters grow strong and healthy.
