Feeding Directions With Hay or Pasture
Start with the amounts given for the weight and class of the horse. After observing the horse for a period of time, the amount fed may be increased or decreased by 10% to obtain the desired body condition and weight. More specific recommendations may also be obtained from a Purina Mills representative. Please consult the tag sewn onto this bag for complete feeding recommendations.

|Active Pleasure (lbs/day)||1.2% of body weight||1/3 to 1/2% of body weight|
|Performance (lbs/day)||1.2% of body weight||3/4 to 1-1/2% of body weight***|
|Pregnant Mares (1 to 7 months)||1.2% of body weight||1/3 to 1/2% of body weight|

EXAMPLE: 1,000 lb active pleasure horse x 1/3% of Body Weight - 1,000 x .003 = 3 lbs of Strategy® fed per day**.
* This is the recommended minimum amount of hay to be fed. If feeding more hay, decrease amount of Strategy® fed by 1 lb per 2 lbs of additional hay fed.
If feeding a grass hay diet, feed 1/2 to 1 lb/horse/day MORE of the Strategy® . After observing the horse for a period of time, the amount fed may be
increased or decreased by 10% to obtain the desired body condition and weight.
** Do not feed less than 1/3% of Body Weight of Strategy® to mature horses or less than 1% of Body Weight to growing horses. If they gain too much
weight at this minimum feeding rate, then horses should be changed from Strategy® to Nature's Essentials® Enrich 32® or Enrich 12®
*** Feed at the higher rate for harder working horses
**** Feed at the higher rate if rapid growth is desired
