Grain-Free Horse Feed

In nature, horses eat very different things: mostly herbs, grass, roots and leaves - windfall fruit is also on their menu if it is available. However, what is not included is grain. The digestive tract of horses is also not suitable for large amounts of it. For comparison: oats have a starch content of 39 percent, corn even 62 percent, while hay contains just 1.8 percent. The energy requirements of leisure horses can also be covered by daily (roughage) feeding. Of course, for horses that used to be involved in field work, grain served as a necessary source of energy, which is not necessary for ordinary leisure horses today. In fact, oats, barley, corn and spelled - all types of grain - are also often fed. An additional energy supplier makes sense, especially if your animal masters performance in sports or does strenuous work. It is also sensible to use wheat bran mash for good digestion and to prevent colic. In addition to being healthy, mash has the slimy consistency horses love. Grain-free horse feed is more suitable for sensitive horses that are prone to illness. After all, horses aren't naturally used to a lot of grain. Ultimately, it depends on the necessary energy requirements whether feed with grain is suitable for your horse.

Grains are not absolutely necessary in horse feed

Grain-free horse feed not only reduces the amount of starch the horses consume. The sugar content in some types of grain is not insignificant. This is particularly disadvantageous for overweight horses, especially since they do not need the excess energy - this usually also applies to horses of normal weight. They get enough energy from their usual roughage. And even if that is not enough, a targeted concentrate supplement should first be used that supplements essential amino acids or minerals. Digestion can also be spared if grains are not used in the feed. Discomfort in the digestive tract can put a strain on the entire organism and disturb the general well-being of your horse. A grain-free diet is particularly recommended for horses suffering from metabolic diseases - i.e. for those with, for example, Cushing's disease, EMS, diabetes or laminitis. Your feed should be tailored to these diseases so that grain does not cause additional discomfort to the animal and prevents existing symptoms from worsening in the long term.
