16 Things You Should Never Feed Your Horse

As animal lovers, we all are very well aware of the amount of care and attention that our pets need on a daily basis.

Whether it’s exercising them, cleaning them or ensuring they get a well-balanced diet, there’s plenty to keep us busy so that they are fit and healthy.

16 Things You Should Never Feed Your Horse

Balancing Diets

One of the trickiest things, especially for inexperienced pet owners, is ensuring that we feed our pets a well-balanced diet and make sure they only eat what they are supposed to.

This, of course, can prove easier with some animals than others. For example, while it might be relatively easy to measure what a rabbit eats (especially if it lives in a hutch all day), it can be a lot trickier to keep an eye on what a dog consumes in a day.

Misfeeding Animals

If you’ve not experienced it personally, then you’ve probably heard a couple of stories. The classic example of this is feeding chocolate to dogs.

Chocolate contains theobromine, which while toxic, can be easily digested by humans, however, dogs cannot.

Chocolate will upset a dog’s stomach and cause vomiting and diarrhea, two things you rather not have in your house if you can help it.

However, it’s not just chocolate, this list from Food Beast outlines 11 other foods that could harm your dog which is well worth a look.

Horses are another animal which requires a relatively specific diet. It’s easy to think that to raise a horse you can just leave a few stacks of hay and a pile of fruit and vegetables, but it isn’t that simple.

In fact, there are a number of things which you might assume would be ok to feed horses which aren’t.

Thankfully, Ride Away has put together a helpful infographic titled ‘16 Things You Should Never Feed Your Horse’ which covers pretty much everything.

Take a look at the infographic below and ensure that your horse gets the perfect diet every day!
