The aim of the project reported here was to determine if young pasture fed horses would grow and mature as well as similar horses hand fed a nutritionally balanced ration. The project was also designed to collect data on the nutrient content of pastures grazed by horses on a number of studs.

The report contains the results of an experiment that compared the growth of hand fed and grazing horses. It also presents data describing the nutrient content of pasture samples collected from a stud on the Darling Downs over two breeding seasons and from five studs in the Scone region of NSW that were collected over one breeding season.
