when you buy a hay bale, give the horse 4 flakes per day. i don't know that 2.2 lbs of hay per 100 lbs of body weight though... that would mean it gets 1980 lbs of hay a day and that is definitely wrong!

If a horse needs 2.2 pounds of hay per 100 pounds of body weight, and you need to find a 900 pound horse's amount of hay, you have to multiply 2.2 by nine. The answer of 2.2 x 9 is 19.8 pounds of hay.

100 lbs/ 2.2 lbs = 45.454545... 900/x= 45.454545... 900/45.454545... =19.8 lbs of hay

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.

No a pound is a standard measurement no matter what is being weighed.

The number of ounces a horse weighs depends on how many pounds it weighs. Remember one pound is 16 ounces. Equines can weigh anything from 250 pounds for a Miniature horse up to 3000 pounds for a Brabant. That means a horse could weigh in at 4,000 to 48,000 ounces depending on breed.

A 1200 pound horse could eat anywhere between 4,380 pounds to 13,140 pounds of food if you follow the correct method of feeding a horse between 1% and 3% of it's own body weight in feed everyday.

A horses head averages to be 2-6 ponds large depending on actual size of horse.

2-150 lbs, after that it is considered a small horse.

for howrse ... 19.8 Answer 2: Horses require anywhere from 1% to3% of their body-weight in feed a day. Going by a strict number such as 2.2 pounds of hay per 100 pounds of body-weight can cause problems if the horse is an easy or hard keeper as it may be too much or too little. However at 2.2 pounds per 100 pounds of body-weight for a 900 pound horse that would equal out to 19.8 pounds of hay a day. ( 2.2 x9=19.8).

Well this would depend on the horses weight. A horse should be fed 1 % up to 3% of it's body weight. Since a Belgian typically weighs between 1800 and 2200 pounds that means the horse could be fed anything from 18 pounds to 66 pounds of feed. With a draft horse it's best to try and start at about 2.5% of the body weight in feed and then adjust up or down from there as needed.

A overweight horse would eat about 20 pounds a day. A normal horse would eat 13 to 17 pounds a day. A under weight horse eat 5 to10 pounds a day.
