Question
hello sir. in the off season, can i feed my horses with 2kg oats in the morning around 9am and 4kg oats in the evening around 6pm.(we feed our horses only twice a day).

Answer
hi   you can feed your horse anything you want to feed at a regular time each day. if the horse is back at the farm just resting, i would think you would not feed much oats as that would keep the horse very active. sweet feed is a much better feed to mellow that out while resting on the far,. thanks ED HESS

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.
