Feeding for Healthy and Happy Horses By Kristina Hiney, PhD, for Omega Fields

Kristina Hiney, Ph.D., for Omega Fields
Horse owners are continually being barraged with information concerning the dangers of grazing, metabolic syndrome, obesity and ulcers. One can become overwhelmed by seemingly conflicting information – even to the point of almost being afraid to feed their horse. We all know that our duty as horse owners is to feed them a diet which best benefits their physical and mental health. We look for horse feeding strategies that will optimize not only the health of their digestive systems, but keep them mentally sound as well. To understand how best to feed horses, we first need to discuss the original nature of a horse prior to its domestication and modern management practices.
