‘Spring Fever' – Fact or Fiction?

Ever wondered why your horse turns into a fire breathing dragon in Spring?   The grass has started to grow – its warmer, the sun is out and it’s also been raining – the perfect conditions for starch and fructans (sugar) to be produced more actively in grass. This brings with it the obvious issues we commonly associate with Spring such as weight gain and metabolic issues that increase the risk for laminitis.

Is your horse prone to gastric ulcers? How would you know?

Whilst there are different types of gastric ulcers they are essentially the result of erosion of the stomach lining due to extended exposure to the digestive acids. Studies show that 90 per cent of racehorses, 63 per cent of performance horses and 37 per cent of leisure horses suffer from them. Ulcers are also prevalent in foals - as many as 50 per cent will suffer at some point. Signs your horse may show if he has gastric ulcers are: Grumpy behaviour Snapping when girthed up Struggling to maintain weight and condition   The most common treatment for gastric ulcers is some form of antacid medication, which reduces acidity in the stomach and allows the ulcers to heal but prevention...
