Grazing and Pasture
If you graze horses in Australia you will be used to living that old saying... “it never rains but it pours”. While some areas are still experiencing the effects of a devastating drought, in past few weeks, rain has been falling heavily in more coastal regions, sparking the grass into life. After going through a long dry period, the plants will be very high in sugars and starches until they have time to recover properly. Horses will desperately gorge on the available green pick and this is when many cases of laminitis occur. Here are the grazing tips that will help you manage.
