NATURAL HORSE SUPPLEMENTS
FOR HELP WITH GRASS AFFECTED HORSES
So, what is Grass Affectedness?
Grass Affectedness is caused by 3 different issues that happen all together for New Zealand horses and include:
1-SUGARS: due to environmental factors and temperate conditions, New Zealand pastures often contain excessively high levels of plant sugars called fructans. Which are contained within the pasture grasses and plants that our horses eat. These cause high blood sugars that lead to various health issues for our horses, along with unwanted excitability due to excess energy-we recommend feeding more low sugar grasses in the form of hay, along with some barley straw and less green grass is the best way to help your horse with this aspect of the condition.
2-SOIL CONTENT: mineral imbalances are rife in our New Zealand pastures, which can cause excitability and overreactive behaviours, along with a long list of various health conditions-this can be corrected by using our Equine Vit and Mineral formula, which provides a carefully blended mix of vitamins, minerals and amino acids to address shortfalls and plug nutritional gaps that are missing from the soils and feeds.
3-PLANT TOXINS: mycotoxins are a type of fungus that plants use as a defence mechanism to deter animals from eating or trampling them. Unfortunately, these endophytes as they are also called, attack the horse's central nervous system and affect the body and mind of the horse, making for a very unsafe situation indeed for riders and can lead to serious medical issues and even death in the horse if left untreated. Our Equi Protect Formula can help to detox your horse quickly and easily and protect them from further risks.
We also highly recommend using a good grass management plan along with our subsidized supplements, such as by break feeding or track grazing to limit your horse's green grass intake, to help your horse recover from these unwanted effects.
