As a feeding guide, a horse should receive approximately 1.5 – 2.5% of its body weight in forage. Therefore on average, a 1100 lb (500kg) horse in maintenance up to moderate work should be getting 22 - 27.5 lb (10 - 12.5kg) or forage (hay and/or grass from grazing) per day. Again this is where slow feed hay nets come in handy as they can be loaded up with the correct amount of hay by weight and you know that your horse or pony getting the amount of forage it requires. As an owner, you can be satisfied that your horse is getting the correct amount of forage it should be getting to maintain it in a healthy state.
Weighs up to 66lb (30kg) of hay.
