A clean – wholesome diet is always the best way to go when optimizing health, but what does that mean? Here at Silver Lining Herbs, we suggest a variety of grass and some alfalfa in the hay so the mare has as much wholesome variety as possible. We also suggest whole oats for grain for the vast majority of horses out there, being sure to stay away from processed feeds and molasses.
