While on face value your horse’s manure is just waste to get rid of, on further investigation it is so much more. In our first article we will have a closer look at horse manure, discussing moisture levels including diarrhea and impaction, manure colour and odour and composition of feaces. A simple way to learn more about your horse’s gastrointestinal health and overall well-being.
Coming into spring it is important that we manage our good doers and those with metabolic disorders early on before symptoms appear or become worse. With fructan levels at their peak during this time of the year, we need to restrict pasture intake for these types of horses. Our second article discusses the use of grazing muzzles, when and how to use these and how they work.
Take care of your horses.
