How much does a horse eat daily?
About 1.5% to 2% of their body weight in grass or grass hay. Then they may eat a couple more pounds of grain if they need it to balance their work load.
that's hard to answer with out more information. It all depends on the size and age of your horse. it also depends on how much work your horse does. on the back of the sack of horse feed.. it tells you the guideline daily amounts and how much your horse should approximately be eating
A wild horse, just like domestic horses, eat around 3% to 5% of their body weight per day.
If a horse has lots of green pasture very much hay is not necessary. If they do not then one beet of hay once a day is plenty.
As with any horse, the daily intake is based on the horse's weight, plus how the horse is being used. On the average, horses need 1% of their body weight in forage to maintain a healthy body mass. As an example, my Arab, who weights 900 pounds dripping wet, eats less than ten pounds a day in grass hay. As we start putting on miles, or the weather gets cold, her food needs go up… Read More
Approximately 1 gallon for every 100 pounds in winter spring and fall, and as much as 2 gallons for every 100 pounds in the summer.
[[Q/How much does horse drink daily|horses do drink around three large buckets of water daily (that is the average for a 15hh HORSE not pony, after all, they are mamals and they are big so they need plenty! ]]
This can vary greatly depending on the horse's size, health and metabolism. But as an average, an adult quarter horse will eat 2 to 4 flakes of hay a day. If he has a large pasture it can be less.
A horse should eat between 1.5% and up to 3% of it's own body weight a day in food, so there is no real average number.
I have heard two different things. One said that they drink anywhere from 5 to 10 gallons a day. Another said they drink about 2% of their body weight a day. I don't know personally because my horses drink out of a pond. Supposing that you, like most people, feed your horses at least 2xs a day, I would think that if you had a 5 gallon bucket filled with water and you gave more… Read More
Grass and oats.
This will depend on the individual horse. Some horses for one reason or another will need more or less food than others of his size. The type and quality of his feed is just as important as how much. As long as your horse is healthy and worm free and his teeth are in good condition I would try 1 to 1 1/2 flakes of a good oat or oat mix hay twice a day… Read More
An adult horse should eat between 1% and 3% of it's own body weight in feed daily/ As an example, a 1,000 pound horse would require 10 to 30 pounds of food a day.
We usually feed our horses two leafs in the morning and two leafs at night. Just in case you didn't know a leaf is the part of the hay that automatically separates also called a flake.
depending on age usually young hores can do 2 hours every day and 3 hours every other day older horse 2 hours every other day but the better the horse cared for the longer the horse has to work
about 50 pounds of wheat.
Depends on the weight of the horse, the age of the horse, how hard the horse is working, the type of grain, and how well they keep their weight on just hay. The nutritional value of the hay your horse is being fed can also affect how much grain your horse needs. If you are trying to put weight on, the horse generally needs more grain. If you're trying to reduce the weight of your… Read More
3 quarts in the morning and 3 quarts in the afternoon. that makes 6 quarts a day.
You should feed your horses at the same time everyday, generally 2 times a day, but the more frequesnt and smaller the meals the better. It's best that they always have hay or grass to munch on- you may have to find hay with less nutrient value so they don't get fat though.Depending on the weight, age, male, female, pregnant, excercise, etc also can depend on the amount as well as winter or summer.

It depends on the amount of work he is doing. He will need at least 1.5- 2 % of his body weight in quality hay or pasture, though. As for grains and supplements... A horse in no work or light work will need little to no grain. My walker eats 2lbs of a low calorie complete feed to make sure he gets all of his vitamins and minerals, but he doesn't do hard work. The… Read More
NO. you loose weight by eating the amount of calories recommended by your doctor, then you exercise daily to turn fat into muscle. Don't diet harshly, but don't eat unnessicary calories and carbs and fatty food, such as ice cream, pie, chips, candy, cake, etc. don't eat red meat. eat fish many times a week. if you feel snackish,and its not around a basic meal time, eat fruit and veggies from a plastic ziplock bag… Read More
A horses diet varies on many things, ie its breed, size, condition plus many more. For example heavy working draft horses will not be feed the same quantity as a shetland child's pony. I own two standardbreds and they both live on 2 "biscuits" of lucerne hay (second cut) daily, if they were competeing horses they would have a different diet with added grains.
to excecise the horse, train, and make sure that the horse is in perfect health condition
It all depends on your horse. If you have a horse with good stamina, or you plan to only walk and trot, you can ride for longer. If you're like me, you love cantering, galloping and jumping over home made jumps :). You can't trail ride as long, it will tire your horse out. Sometimes, I'm on my horse for over 2 1/2 / 3 hours, but I give my horse breaks. It depends on… Read More
Yes. All animals should have fresh water daily. Horses have a habit of dropping hay in their water and also they like to play in it too. So it should be changed daily. If you don't have a bucket or trough that you can easily dump out, then you should at least put the hose in the water and let it over flow until the water runs clean.
At a very minimum, a horse's stall should be cleaned daily. Preferably, a stall should be cleaned twice a day.Leaving urine and feces in a stall for an extended period of time can lead to many health problems for your horse. Thrush, a fungi, can develop in your horses feet due to the bacteria and moisture left by urine and feces. This can lead to lameness and extreme cases severe permanent hoof problems. Respiratory issues… Read More
A horse should be fed mainly hay, and only a little little bit of grain a day.Try a cup or less of grain a day.
All stalls, even if a horse isn't always in it, should be cleaned as much as possible. If you are bored, pick out a stall. If your horse goes, clean the stall.
feeding and general nutrition needs: their food includes clean hay, water, grain supplements, and whatever else would need to be included in their diet. (and sometimes treats) feed at least twice a day. salt blocks can be appetizing too. -lots of exercise: don't keep a horse locked up in its stall on a sunny day, let it roam out in the pasture and get some sun and fresh air -grooming: brush its coat, pick out… Read More
A single ticket picking the winners of first and second race of the day
you should let your horse have it daily which means all the time they drink 6 gallons of water everyday

Adult horse flies feed on nectar and sometimes pollen. Females usually require a blood meal for reproduction. Males lack the necessary mouth parts (mandibles) for blood feeding. Most female horse flies feed on mammal blood, but some species are known to feed on birds, amphibians or reptiles.
First let me say that you should feed a horse by weight not volume as feeding by volume is in no way accurate. Now how long a 50 pound bag of feed will last based on a 3 qt scoop depends on how much that 3 qt scoop actually weighs. For example 1 qt of oats weighs 1 pound( 3 lbs for 3 qts), while 1 qt of wheat bran weighs 0.5 pounds (1.5 lbs… Read More
True A horses daily rotation is determend how hard it works .
Unclean stalls attract insects and could encourage hoof problems like thrush. Breathing ammonia from urine saturated bedding can be harmful to your horse's or pony's sensitive lungs. It's unpleasant to work in and smelly for you too. Stall cleaning should be a daily task.
if you don not check your horse daily then your horse will die.
you can feed you horse hay, carrot and other vegges and dont forget grass
You can eat as many carrots as you want!
Care depends on the horse and what you use him for. Daily activities may include mucking out the box/ stall, turning the horse out to pasture and bringing him back in again, rugging him, feeding, watering, grooming, tidying the barn area, worming, riding, exercising in general, going to a show, and many others.
i do 1 to 2 flacks a day, one in the morning and the evening that way it can digest. if your horse is already over weight and gets pregnant don't feed her any. and if your horse is a mini don't feed her any.
Mites (mange) and lice will need some help to get rid of them Sunlight alone generally will NOT get rid of these ectoparasites.
Daily is the adverb.
They don't need daily treatment, but you need to get the horse dentist out at least once a year to check them, if they have points on them he will float them.
Assuming that you are asking this question because you are interested in becoming a doctor, I would suggest that you learn some basic English spelling and grammar. To answer the question (which I can barely decipher), it depends on the doctor.
yes you do because horses are quite a handful so if i were you i would make sher you have plenty of time to groom, clean, and wash them!
Correct! A horses diet is rationed on the weight and size of the horse and how much daily exercise it does. Correct! A horses diet is rationed on the weight and size of the horse and how much daily exercise it does.
