Managing Horses on High Sugar Pastures

Grass…sweet, fresh, appetizing…it seems like the perfect food for equines. Indeed, it’s hard to find a horse, even a picky eater, that won’t dig right in when given access to pasture. So how can this readily available, appealing, natural forage be dangerous for some horses and ponies?

Sharing in the caring of hooves

Taking care of your horse’s hooves, whilst not the easiest part of owning a horse, is vital to making sure your horse remains happy and healthy. Unhealthy hooves can not only lead to short term problems that can affect your riding plans, but could also lead to long term damage resulting in a horse that can no longer be ridden.  A few easy steps added to your daily routine will go a long way to ensuring that your horse’s hooves are strong and healthy.

You might be surprised to hear that the powerhouse of the horse’s digestive system is THE HINDGUT!

Horses are unable to digest fibre using their own digestive enzymes and rely on microbes for fermentation. The beneficial microbes are in a very delicate balance and do not appreciate a change in their environment and are responsible for not only fermentation but boosting the immune system, inhibiting the production and absorption of bacterial toxins, and excluding bad bacteria (they are clearly very important!).
