Changes in your horse's diet
March 20, 2012
Spring has officially sprung! Remember that sudden forage changes in your horse’s diet may trigger digestive issues. Feed hay immediately before turn-out to help him or her from overeating on lush, green pasture.
Restricting grazing time will also help minimize risks. Here’s a rule of thumb: allow 30 minutes of grazing once or twice a day on the first day, then increase grazing time by 5-10 minutes per day until the horses are grazing 4-6 hours per day total.
