The feeding rate differs according to work schedule and classification of the horse. An example would be an idle, miniature horse versus a draft horse under high stress exercise.  We take into consideration the classification; miniature, stock type, sport type and draft.  We also balance diets for the individuals work load; idle/maintenance, light exercise, moderate exercise, intense exercise, gestation, early lactation, late lactation, breeding stallion, weanling, and yearling.
