Breakfast: It’s the most important meal of the day

Horses in residence at EPI receive their supplements with their breakfasts. Their supplements range from a daily scoop of Platinum to specialized formulas for joint care, skin and coat condition, and hoof support. Any medications are also given at this time.

To ensure that the right breakfast gets to the right horse, our ranch manager Leslie prepares the supplement rations a week at a time.

In the mornings, the horses are tied to the various tie rings around the ranch and given their breakfasts in individual buckets. This prevents the horses from attempting to eat each other’s meals while also helping them practice relaxation while tied.

It also helps us keep an eye on each horse’s health as well as their manners while haltering and leading.

    I’ve followed the example of the best! Since I finished work at EPI, I make the supplements up once a week and it’s really helpful.

    Plus, all your horses get the food all together so they have no jealousy or fights over food, etc because they are all satisfied at once.

    Exactly! It’s like they all meet up at a coffee house to read the paper and linger over an espresso and a croissant.

    Now if I could just get in a routine of making MY supplement containers weekly — B6, B12, omega-6 capsule, VitC, Grape Nuts — I’d be really on the ball. LOL
