Do you think about the fact that horses have evolved as herbivores over the past 3 million years, with the equine digestive system designed to derive nutrients from a variety of carbohydrates, proteins and oils found in plants, herbs and grasses? Having a small stomach requires horses to graze for most of the day (approx. 14 – 18 hours a day), consuming small amounts as often and where possible.
For horses in the “modern” world, life is very different. With restricted or no access to pasture, there is a necessity to supplement with a range of feedstuffs in order to provide the additional nutrients required.
