Feeding and Management

  1. Feed at a rate of one block per 5 head of horses. This allows all animals equal access to blocks.
  2. Place the blocks where horses congregate. Locate blocks throughout the pasture at loafing, grazing and watering areas. Adequate distance must be maintained between blocks to prevent crowding - 10 feet minimum.
  3. Do not allow horses to run out of blocks. When a block is two-thirds consumed, provide a new block near it. Place very small pieces in a feed pan or trough to be clean up.
  4. Horses should consume 2 to 4 ounces per head daily.
  5. Blocks can be fed to horses in confinement. Exact location of block to obtain desired consumption will vary between confinement feeding programs. Provide fresh, clean water at all times.
