The health and performance of your horses will depend on how properly balanced the bacteria in their digestive tracts are. Newborn animals including your horse are born into this world with sterile digestive system which quickly becomes home to healthy bacteria, as well as disease-causing microorganisms. Unfortunately, changes in feeding practices and environment, weaning, transportation, and medications are practices which could alter the horse’s intestinal environment in a way that the growth of disease-causing microorganisms is being favored.
Naturally, horses are free-grazing animals. The entire digestive system of a horse is designed to process food twenty four hours a day since that is how often a horse eats. Though horses may have a small stomach in relation to their size, they still need to eat frequently but in small amounts. The stomach of a horse contains digestive acids that help in food digestion. This stomach empties out contents every 20 minutes. When horses eat grass, hay, and forage, they are also doing themselves a favor not to develop damages on the stomach lining. During the time a horse is confined to a stable, they are subjected to training to improve their performance for a show or a race. Usually, the frequency of feeding and quality of the food are altered. These stabled horses will most likely be fed with high-grain foods to supply them with and compensate the loss of energy during intensive training program. In addition, these high grain feeds are being fed in large amounts.
