Vanessa Fox’s journey towards a love of equine nutrition started with working as a park ranger in South Africa; taking clients on guided horseback safaris to see wild animals; raising lions and hyenas. It was exiting. It also involved learning how to manage the unique the nutritional requirements of herbivores and carnivores, and how to manage their unique feeding Then she moved to the States, studied Environmental Management and Environmental Health, and started ranching with her husband and young daughter. At Fox Farms, Vanessa raises cattle, sheep, horses, pigs, and a variety of poultry and waterfowl. Caring for horses is entirely different, and Vanessa realized through her own horses, that their unique nutritional challenges would be best served through a dedicated, science based approach.
