Re: Feeding a TB while being rested
Dont talk to me about race horses, we have had our one since August and have had two accidents so far! - I am giving mine Allan & Page calm and condition with chaff, oil in the feed to add gloss etc. But, if you want some help, then you should call Rowena at the Reabilitation of Race Horses Assoc, she has been really helpful since we have had Spirit, her number is 01780 740 773.
She told me to do three things, firstly get a worm count done, (ours came back clear)
Get the teeth done immediately
Get the back checked.
She recommends all Dengie products, Alpha Beat, Denie A Alfa Molasses Free -
twice a day
But, seriously call her, if you get a answer machine, then leave your name and number and she will come back to you right away, she will guide you right the way through from feed, to stable management, to what bit to put in the mouth, to everything, they have all ex racers that come to them and are all re abilitated and then loaned back out for general use.
Hope this helps
