Failure to meet the minimum forage requirement of 1.5% of the horse’s bodyweight and the opportunity for foraging for a minimum of 8 h a day (not going without this opportunity longer than four to five consecutive hours) can have both physiological and behavioural consequences. To provide an energy source for horses, rations often include starch rather than fibre. This can result in health issues related to the gastrointestinal tract (GIT) in the horse.

What about grazing? Don’t horses need to constantly eat for their mental and physical health? No. Horses in their feral environment spend so much time grazing because grass is about 80% water and often poor nutritional quality. There are no calories in water.  The horse has to eat that much just to get the calories needed. Food Storage, Gastronomia, Fodmap, Wellness, Food Supply, Survival Food, Seed Bank, Yemek
