The Wish for Greener Grass


 

The Wish for Greener Grass

There’s no harm in wishing for the greener grass on the other side of the fence. It’s ours to take as long as we’re willing to work for it.

Thanks for visiting …

    • Good question. And yes, it is true. The condition primarily effects the feet (although obesity is a related problem) and is called laminitis. It can be deadly. That’s why when the new spring grass comes in responsible owners put their horses on limited turnout. This means maybe half day or less until their systems get used to the higher sugar content. Sugar content in grass is also higher after a frost. There are also horses that have a condition that might be compared to pre-diabetes in humans. They can only eat limited amounts of fresh grass and must wear a special muzzle to keep them from over-indulging.
