Horses are big animals indeed. If you did not know better, you would have believed that these majestic creatures could pretty much take care of themselves. But no, unfortunately they cannot. No longer do they roam pastures and plains freely. It could be a blessing in disguise that these mild-mannered creatures are under the custody and care of humankind. They have also become more docile and subservient.
They are destined to a life of servitude under the studious yolk of humankind. It is a blessing in disguise because, like many other fine creatures on this Mother’s earth, how are they expected to cope in an environment that is becoming more urbanized and congested each and every year. Their natural food sources are also at a premium and there is little or no room for them to forage willingly and freely. But even under the kind care of a man or woman, they are still falling short.
Because of their servitude, they are sometimes overburdened with work. Whether they are show jumping, drawing carts or plowing the farmer’s fields, they can sometimes fall short in their daily nutritional requirements. To compensate, and much like humankind today, they can also have their supplements, only with a difference. A specialist veterinary surgeon can advise the horse owner accordingly on what type of horse supplements he needs to utilize for his animal.
As the saying is for every dog having his day, the cats of this world all having nine lives – and they too, can have their supplements to chew on so long – each horse has different tasks and workloads to manage. The appropriate supplement can help sustain the horse and ensure that it does not need to fall short on its daily nutritional requirements.
