Feeding

How we use

Cost of feeding

The foundation of an equine's nourishment should always be from high-quality pasture and hay; therefore, this feed is designed to supplement that nutritional intake. The amount your individual equine eats daily will primarily depend on the amount of access to green vegetation, as well as, size and physical demand from pregnancy, lactation, or workload. The feeding suggestions below are guidelines based on the healthy animal requiring a maintenance diet. 

Supplement an average sized horse's forage diet with 2 to 3 cups, split evenly between two meals.

 

Supplement a miniature horse or donkey's forage diet with 1/2 to 1 cup, split evenly between two meals.

 

This feed does contain beet pulp, and DOES require soaking before serving to horses. Soak in hot water for 5 - 10 minutes. Donkeys do fine on a more fibrous feed; this feed may need soaking before serving to them. If you decide not to soak the feed, provide easy access to plenty of fresh water while feeding.

 

To add variety to your feed bag: Mix completely into your feed bag at the following rates: 

5 lb. bucket per 25 lb. feed bag

10 lb. bucket per 50 lb. feed bag

 

As a treat: Feed as needed to add variety and nutrition to diet.

We use this feed in conjunction with our Greens, Fruits, and Flowers. Our horses, raised outside, roam and graze for needed nutrition; this feed is simply to supplement that intake. We feed 1 cup per horse in a ground feeder twice per day. 

These are just estimates and based off of our personal experience; the amounts will fluctuate according to your use. Remember, our products are not only designed for your herd, but are intended for you; so whether we are helping you feed, supplement, or treat - we can enrich any feeding plan. The price estimates below do not reflect shipping and handling, as they fluctuate and must factor in circumstances that vary among buyers (i.e., distance, shipping method, etc.).   

 

To feed one average sized horse, 1 cup, twice daily it would cost about $1.00 per day for a 10 lb bucket. The cost would fall to about $0.87 per day if you were using a 20 lb. bucket. For one horse at this feeding rate, there are about 26 servings in a 10 lb bucket and about 53 servings in a 20 lb. bucket. Feeding donkeys and smaller horses would come closer to that of a small ruminant.

 

We, at Casually Cockeyed Farms, realize this cost may be out of reach for some, but that is why we design our products with every farm in mind. We use the highest of quality ingredients; however, we pay a premium to do so. The good news is you can control the cost by utilizing the option to supplement your already established feeding program - just toss us into your feed bag and voila! To further reduce the cost, simply offer us to your herd as a beneficial, healthy treat - the possibilities are endless!
