Many horses are subjected to the stress of traveling so you may need additional requirements for managing their feeding programs.

Horses like consistency.

Changes can cause emotional and physical stress.

The following are some suggestions that may be useful to help maintain body condition, appearance, and performance.

Stoltzfus 2FIRST and foremost, it is critical to maintaining water intake while traveling and while stabled away from home.

Your horses will need fresh clean water available at all times and even offered as needed between classes.

If horses get dehydrated during a show, the risk of impaction colic may increase, particularly during hot weather.

The horses may also not perform up to expectations, particularly in multiple day or multiple event competitions.

SECOND, maintain your feeding schedule as close as possible to the routine followed at home.

Stoltzfus 4You may have to adjust slightly to accommodate classes.

If you miss a feeding, do not double up at the next one!

Use the same forage as you feed at home.

Salt should be offered free choice white traveling.

Additional electrolytes may be used prior to, during, and following a competition, but should not be added to the water as this may impact water intake.

THIRD, monitor body condition carefully and adjust feeding rates to avoid excess weight loss while traveling.

FOURTH, select a horse feed that will help reduce the risk of metabolic issues and will help maintain intake to maintain body condition and bloom.

Added fat, controlled starch and sugar products with balanced amino acids and added key vitamins work well for virtually all classes of show horses.

For additional product information please stop by Stoltzfus Feed and Supply in Gap or call 717-442-8280. www.stoltzfusfeed.com

Slow feeding success with Hay Pillow - Avoiding frustration key

The key to a successful transition to slow feeding or introducing a smaller mesh size is to make it a positive experience for your horse and avoid causing frustration, which defeats the purpose of happier, healthier horses.

Hay Pillow 1Frustration elevates stress levels and increases gastric acid production.

Two important factors within your control that influence your horse's frustration level are:
• How you introduce slow feeding.
• Your choice of mesh size.

Hay Pillow 2If slow feeding is introduced thoughtfully, the vast majority of individuals adapt quickly, typically the first day!

Tips for Introducing a New Slow Feeder
• Don't overfill. If it's filled too tightly, it will force your equine to scrape their teeth across the netting to extract hay and cause frustration.
• Do pull hay through the openings. This gives your horse an easy start.
• Do place loose hay on top if using a Bale Net, Standard, Mini or Manger Hay Pillow.
• Do choose a slow feed solution appropriate for your horse's unique environment and weather conditions.
• Do monitor your horse and adjust accordingly.

Hay Pillow 3When choosing a mesh size for your slow feed hay bags or nets, it is prudent to err on the side of caution.

Small mesh sizes do not necessarily equate to your horse eating slower - he may not be able to extract hay and experience frustration.
