Feeding Directions (without forage)

Feed according to the amounts shown below, which are based on the weight of your horse/pony and level of work. The following chart references the amount of SAFE N EASY™ Complete to feed in lb per day when fed without forage as the sole source of nutrition. When being fed as a complete feed, SAFE N EASY Complete should be fed at no more than 0.5% of the horse's body weight per meal. For example, for a 1,100 lb horse, feed no more than 5.5 lb per meal. Therefore, approximately four to six small meals should be fed throughout the day. SAFE N EASY Complete may be soaked to increase ease of consumption. Soaking is optional.
