Re: nutrition in foundered horse

I'm guessing it is in an attempt to obtain more protein and nutrients from
less feed because, in reality, Purina Strategy is designed to be a
supplement added to regular feed, not a feed in and of itself.

A horse is a projection of peoples' dreams about themselves - strong,
powerful, beautiful - and it has the capability of giving us escape from our
mundane existence.
