Feeding the older horse (Dutch article)
Brief content of the article
Anneke Hallebeek discusses in this practical article if a special senior diet may be of benefit for the older horse. As dental condition may be a limiting factor in appropriate feed intake, the article present some raw materials, which may be used in a senior diet (e.g. beet pulp, oats meal, oil). By the use of fiber-rich raw materials, the amount of roughage can be limited which may be necessary for horses with poor dental condition. Further, supplementing immune-stimulating nutrients (Zinc, Vitamin E and C) may be beneficial.
