Maybe this is also the real question we should be asking about feeding our horses as well?
I missed this question when I changed my stable to whole, organic grain several years ago. I did it because I felt I needed to find more answers to the issue of irritated gut, not enough “good” energy while working and ultimately…keeping equine athletes happy and fit for long careers.
So I bit the bullet and switched to certified organic grain. (I had already switched to organic hay previously).
The results have been awesome. I could go on for pages…less gut irritation, more muscle building with the same effort, amazing coats, very good working energy, etc…
And the big surprise…overall about the same grain costs!!! As we did the gradual grain change over, I noticed I did not need to feed the same amount of organic feed as processed feed. Better muscle, better energy, better training, less feed with organic. 🙂 So my feed costs have stayed about the same for my whole stable from processed feed to organic. 🙂 🙂 🙂
We stock Genesis Certified Organic Feed here at Flying Colours. It is also available at County Living in Okotoks and if Edmonton horse owners would like it available…G and E Pharmacy will bring it in to the store, if you request!!!
So drop into G&E and ask for Genesis!!! Or drop by the stable and ask us about Genesis! ❤
Off to find my yoga mat…OMG I’m a vegetarian, yoga doing, organic eating, animal trainer…I guess I am the “Organic Lady”!!! ❤
