Can horses cope with sudden cold weather?
Horses can survive and even thrive in what we consider to be very inhospitable conditions, but they do need plenty of feed to fuel them and keep them warm.
Congratulations to Becki Chapman and Jane van Lennep who have proved that feeding a pure forage diet is no barrier to competing successfully at the highest level.
Becky's Blackmoor Mac Rua (Mac to his friends) took first place in the ‘Search for a Star’ hunter class at the recent Horse of the Year Show.
Jane's Trizeyah, homebred pure Arab mare, gained third place in the prestigious Arab Horse Society Marathon, covering the 26 miles of undulating countryside in 1 hour 48 minutes.
Who says you have to feed cereals for top performance?!
