Ideally, the bulk of your horse's diet is good pasture or hay. But sometimes horses, if they're working hard, very young or old, or are 'hard keepers', need a bit more than they can get from hay.
That's when concentrates made of various grains, minerals, vitamins and other foods can compliment your horse's diet. If you're feeding your horse any sort of grain or concentrated feed you'll need to put some thought into storage. There are a few storage options available, and some good reasons why you should keep your horse's feeds fresh--the main one being maintaining optimum nutrition. You will also want to keep pests, big and small, out the feed. I've put together a few tips to help you find the best way to store your horse's grains and concentrates.
