In general, an average size riding horse (1,000 to 1,200 lbs.) should consume 5 to 10 lbs. of LONGEVITY®per day. The amount given at any one time should be no more than 0.5% of the horse’s body weight. For example, a 1,000 lb. horse should be fed no more than 5 lbs. per feeding.
Feeding levels may vary with the seasons, type of forage and the general condition of the horse. Always provide reasonable quality hay and/or pasture; clean, fresh water and salt. Do not feed additional proteins, vitamins or minerals except on the advice of a nutritionist. Consult your veterinarian concerning proper health programs.
In many cases, even horses over 20 years of age can be kept in good condition with McCauley’s Original® 12 pelleted feed. Please consult our nutritionists for more information. For horses experiencing difficulty in chewing hay and/or pasture, McCauley’s Alam® may partially or completely replace the roughage portion of the diet. Alam® can be fed as a mash.
