What is a horse's diet
With horses, good feed and sufficient exercise are inseparable. They have a sensitive digestive system that has adapted to the vast grasslands during evolution. In horse husbandry, the thorough selection of a balanced, high-quality feed to properly nourish the animal therefore plays an important role. In order to keep the horse's digestion going, the feed should be offered in portions over the day.
Horses are herbivores (herbivores) and grazing animals: with the help of their incisors, they bite off the grass and chop it up with their molars. The chopped up food mixes with saliva in the mouth, is swallowed and ends up in the horse's stomach. Horses have a relatively small stomach in relation to their body size, which is why they actually eat all the time. Since the horses belong to the flight animals, a large, full stomach would be unfavorable for the animals. It is therefore ideal if the horse can continuously consume small amounts of feed during the day and at the same time be able to move sufficiently.
Horse digestion is an extremely sensitive system. Most of the work is done by the approximately 40 meter long intestine. If the horse receives too much feed, incorrect feed or a short-term change in feed, this can cause severe, painful digestive disorders (colic). Such colic can also end with the death of the horse. In addition, a diet that is too high in protein and high in carbohydrates can also lead to laminitis.
