THE BAILEYS FEED CALCULATOR

Heart Girth / Length 2

1. ESTABLISH BODYWEIGHT

The amount to feed your horse is determined by its bodyweight rather than its height. If you know your horse's bodyweight, you can enter it below. If not, you can enter the length and heart girth (see diagram on right), and we will estimate it for you.

NB - Length is measured from the point of the shoulder, to the point of the buttocks.

Next enter your horse's workload and condition then click Calculate  Feed Amounts.
