IS IT POSSIBLE TO CONTROL FEED COSTS WHILE FEEDING A BALANCED DIET?
Absolutely! Because we consider the nutrients in your horse's forage, we can be sure you aren't oversupplementing your horse. We can also compare costs of each item in your diet as we are formulating, which allows us to end up with diets that are the most bang for your buck.
CAN YOU HELP ME WITH DIET OPTIONS TO HELP MY ELDERLY HORSE REMAIN AS HEALTHY AND ACTIVE AS POSSIBLE?
Taking into account the special needs of aged horses, we can come up with feeding plans that work for both you and your horse. We will consider your horse's physical status, the increased nutritional needs of older horses, his or her personal preferences and also your budget!
WHAT CAN I DO TO GET A SHINY COAT AND HEALTHY HOOVES?
A simple balanced diet will do wonders for your horse's health. Being sure the diet contains adequate amounts of oil and certain minerals is key to be sure you are doing everything you can, nutritionally.
WHY SHOULD I HAVE YOU FORMULATE MY HORSE'S DIETS?
Primarily, having a balanced diet is very important to the health and well-being of your horse. Whatever your preferred method of achieving a balanced diet - this is the #1 priority.
Why this service though? Praxis can save you money as compared to working directly with an equine nutritionist with an advanced degree. The method used to formulate your diets is run by equine nutritionists, so you are not sacrificing quality.
As compared to working with a nutritionist from a feed company, you will receive an unbiased and very flexible and thorough approach. Praxis will use the nutrition your forage provides and add any supplemental feeds you have access to in order to balance the diet. Data from custom feeds you have can be analyzed and used too.
You will find a link to FeedXL on the 'Services' page if you would like to formulate your own diets through FeedXL. Nan has used the service for years. She highly recommend giving DIY a try!
HOW DO YOU CREATE THE DIETS?
Praxis prides itself by using FeedXL, which was developed by and is run by highly educated and experienced nutritionists. Your forage analysis (or an estimate) and water analysis (if available) are used as the base of your horse's diet, then the diet is balanced as appropriate for your horse's needs and your goals.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
For $60, you will receive up to 3 diets for 1 horse. These can be different diets you need for any purpose. Examples could be: balancing out different forage you feed through the year, different diets as your horse's workload changes or just different approaches for you to try.
If you would like your forage or water sampled and sent for testing, you will be quoted based on the testing you would like and your distance from Praxis.
WHAT FORMS OF PAYMENT DOES PRAXIS EQUINE LLC TAKE?
You may pay by check, direct deposit, credit/debit card or PayPal. You will receive an invoice with payment links when your diet reports are ready.
