With grass growing at exceptional rates due to the sunny weather and spring showers, we can expect to see a lot of horses restricted from grazing the lush spring grass.

Spring grass is nature’s way of providing the horse with important nutrients after surviving the winter. Most horses through domestication don’t have the need for the extra lush grass, so are restricted in their grazing patterns and therefore are restricted in the nutrients it provides.

It is important that we recognize how much nutritional benefit the horse could be lacking and that we can provide the best nutritional support while avoiding excessive weight gain or triggering laminitis.

For those horses who aren’t restricted we must be aware of the higher levels of sugar present in spring grass, especially indigestible storage sugars that can cause issues with the hind gut.

The spring grass supply also coincides with the natural foaling season, providing the mare with high levels of protein and calories essential to support milk production.
