What to feed, how to feed, and when — conventional wisdom used to dictate the answer: Toss out a flake of “good quality” hay and hope the for best. These days, though, advances in nutritional research, evolving horse-keeping practices, disappearing pasture land, and increasingly sophisticated veterinary knowledge make the horse owner’s feed decisions highly complex. For some it can be daunting, but for equine nutritionist Juliet M. Getty, PhD, the changing horse-scape creates an exciting opportunity to optimize the nutritional profile of every horse.
Dr. Juliet M. Getty’s comprehensive reference book, Feed Your Horse Like A Horse, is designed to guide you through the elements of proper nutrition for your horse. Whether you simply need to brush up what you already know, determine whether your horse needs a particular supplement, help your horse heal from an injury or metabolic condition, ease your horse through growth or growing old, or want your horse to reach his athletic potential, you’ll reach for this book again and again. Every topic is covered with sound, well-researched science and reinforced by Dr. Getty’s personal experience in working with actual cases — real world situations that affect real horses. Feed Your Horse Like A Horseis a reference book equally valuable for the equine science student, the large-scale breeder, the frequent competitor, the recreational horseman, and anyone else with a horse’s well-being at heart.
One reviewer said this about the book: “I have purchased many equine nutrition books and subscribe to [several horse magazines]… and I would say Dr. Getty’s book is hands-down the most detailed, comprehensive, factual, and authoritative source of equine nutrition.”
