Question
hello sir, to improve digestion in horses, can i add additional amount of bran in my horse feed tub? does it lead to any trouble?

Answer
HI YES YOU CAN ADD BRAN TO THE MEAL AT NIGHT AFTER A HARD RACE. ALWAYS REMEMBER THAT ANY CHANGE IN A HORSES DIET CAN MAKE THEM GO OFF THEIR FEED. ALWAYS WHEN YOU CHANGE FEED  PLEASE CHANGE VERY SLOWLY A LITTLE AT A TIME OVER A PERIOD OF A WEEK OR SO TILL THE HORSE GETS ACUSTOMED TO THE NEW FEED.  THANKS ED  HESS

Have trained thoroughbreds for 30 odd years. Have been a licensed trainer for that long of time. I continue to train my race horses and thoroughly enjoy every day.

Experience: Licensed trainer for over 30 yrs. Have had lots of winners in all different types of races - from bottom claimers to top quality stakes winners. My best money winner was Aristocratic Cross (multiple stakes winner). My best claiming horse was Navajo Family, winner of 12 races in one year. I still enjoy racing a modest stable of horses each year.
