*This is the recommended minimum amount of hay to be fed. If feeding more hay, reduce the feeding rate of Strategy® Healthy Edge® horse feed by 1.0 lb for every
 additional 2.0 lbs of hay fed. EXAMPLE: Using the chart above, if feeding 14 lbs instead of 12 lbs of hay to a 1,000 lb elevated activity level horse, reduce
Strategy® Healthy Edge® horse feed offered by 1.0 lb from 5.25 to 4.25 lbs per day (2.0 lbs of additional hay divided by 2.0 lbs = 1.0 lb less of
Strategy® Healthy Edge® horse feed).

**Do not feed less than 0.3 lbs per 100 lbs of body weight per day. EXAMPLE: A 1,000 lb horse has ten 100 lb increments (1,000 divided by 100 = 10).
So for this horse, do not feed less than 3 lbs per day (10 x 0.3 = 3.0 lbs per day). If your horse gains too much weight at that minimum feeding rate,
then you should replace Strategy® Healthy Edge® horse feed with Purina’s Nature’s Essentials® Enrich 12® or Enrich 32® Horse Supplement.

Important Considerations:

  • Do not feed free-choice
  • Feed at regular times (at least twice daily). When feeding rates exceed 1% of body weight, three daily feedings are preferred
  • Any feed changes should be made gradually over a period of 7 to 10 days
  • Changes in the rate of feeding should not exceed one pound per day for each horse
  • Feed along with at least 1-1.5% of horse’s body weight of good quality hay or the equivalent in pasture to make a complete ration
  • Have plenty of fresh, clean water available at all times
  • Prevent the rapid eating by the horse of any feed stuffs
  • Store feed in a dry, well-ventilated area protected from rodents and insects
  • Do not feed moldy or insect-infested feed to animals as it may cause illness or death
  • This product to be fed to the animal species as directed on the label
  • In addition to nutritional care and consultation, be sure to make regular veterinary checkups and farrier appointments part of your horse wellness program
