Anatomy of the digestive system - Part 1: From the mouth to the stomach

November 2012 by Mariette van den Berg B.(Hons), MSc (Equine Nutrition)

Digestive and metabolic disorders are very common in the domestic horse and in the majority of the cases they can be traced back to the way we manage and feed our horses.

In this three part series we dissect the equine gastrointestinal (GI) tract to gain a better understanding of the digestive process and learn how we should keep our horses, and what feeding management we should follow to maintain optimal (digestive) health in our horses.
