Recommend feeding amounts of whole oats vary from different situations. Whole oats have a very high percentage of starch digestibilities when compared to the low starch digestibility of other grains like barley and corn. Because of this, small amounts of whole oats are recommended to use in the dietary regimen. Horses with certain health issues may not benefit from the properties that whole oats can deliver. Certain breeds of horses, prone to EPSM (Equine Polysaccharide Storage Myopathy) like Warmbloods, Draft and even some Quarter horses could be grain-intolerant. Horses that are insulin resistant (IR), cushings and other metabolic disorders should have a feeding regimen from a qualified animal health professional, which may not include whole oats. This product should be stored in a dry well ventilated area protected from weather, insect and pest infestations.
The most important thing in a horse’s diet is water. Provide plenty of fresh clean water at all times.
Consult your veterinarian or nutritionist to develop a total health care and nutritional program for your animal. All health care programs should include regular deworming, vaccination and dental care
