HOW MUCH GRAIN CAN BE FED?

Performance Horse Nutrition

The grain portion of the diet is intended to be digested in the small intestine of the horse. When large amounts of grain are fed in a single meal, the small intestine cannot digest and absorb all the grain and it moves undigested into the large intestine which can lead to colic and laminitis.

NO more than 2 kg (4 lbs) of grain should be offered in a single meal.
