Oats are considered to be the only cereal grain that horses can digest when they are fed whole, uncooked or unprocessed. Other cereal grains need to be cooked or processed for the horse to gain any benefit.

Find out why, and how to tell if your horse is capable of chewing and digesting whole oats at: feedxl.com/18-feed-cooked-grains/ (Hint: 💩!)If you want to analyse your horse's diet to find out if their nutritional requirements are being met too little, too much or just right, don't forget that Pony Club Australia Members save 10% off subscriptions to the FeedXL Horse Nutrition Calculator via: feedxl.referralrock.com/l/1PONYCLUBAU59/ #welfarewednesday #horse #feeds #feeding #oats #memberbenefits #grain ...
