Your Pasture Pharmacy: Part 1

31/05/2017 by Dr Mariette van den Berg, BAppSc (Hons), MSc, PhD (Equine Nutrition), RAnNutr, Certified Permaculture Design Consultant,

In this new and exclusive series, Dr Mariette van den Berg will take you on a journey of discovery of the grazing life of horses, exploring how herbivores and plants have adapted to not just co-exist, but benefit each other and thrive. 

You will learn that both plants and horses constantly respond to their environment and have a well-developed ability to make wise-decisions to protect themselves and avoid costly mistakes.  (Yes, we will show you that just like horses and other animals, plants make decisions and even learn!).
