THE WILD FED STORY

I was inspired to create this feed because of my first love, my horse Shadow. He joined our family when we both were 10yrs old. Just before his 30th birthday his teeth were so worn down that he started choking on hay and was no longer able to hold his weight eating just hay. I needed to add calories with something easily digestible but also had a high nutrient value to support his aging body. The senior feeds on the market contained undesirable industry by-products such as peanut hulls, soybean meal, beet pulp, rice bran as well as sweeteners and synthetic nutrients.

I decided to create my own all natural horse feed for Shadow. At the time, I was in medical school studying to be a Naturopathic Physician which reinforced my belief in the healing power of nature. I felt that the key to designing an amazing feed would be to pay close attention to what horses would eat, left to their own devices. I spent hours with Shadow and my other horse Shya while they grazed in the pasture and observed the types of grasses and herbs they sought out.

This feed is designed to mimic how horses would naturally eat, hence the name Wild Fed. It is formulated for horses of any age young or old and meets the daily required nutritional needs. It can be used as a primary feed source or in addition to your feeding regimen to add easily digestible calories.

Although Shadow was no longer able to eat hay, he loved his Wild Fed Horse Feed which was his primary food source for over 5yrs. It kept him looking and feeling great until his recent passing at age 35. RIP Shadow thank you for being my inspiration.
