While opinions abound on proper nutrtional requirements for our equine partners, The Rustic Star has chosen to adapt Michigan State University's quidelines for our feeding program.
*Grain is measured by weight when every new horse arrives and is put on our feeding program
*Hay is grown on the property from two large hayfields--one is a grass mixture and the other is an Alfalfa/grass mix
*Horses graze on nearly 50 acres of lush pastures during the summer and rotate regularly to fresh pastures to prevent overgrazing
*All provided supplements will be added to individual grains as directed by the horse owner
*All horses follow the de-worming guidelines provided by Equine Medical after a fecal sample is submitted. TRS provides up to two doses of de-wormer per year based on fecal results--if you opt not to have a fall fecal taken, your horse will be de-wormed at your expense.
And God took a handful of southerly wind, blew his breath upon it, and created the horse. ~ Bedouin legend
We are horse families who love spending time doing things with our horses and our TRS horse friends!
