HORSES are naturally browsers as well as grazers, generally social animals more content in a group than kept separate, curious to explore their surroundings and given long limbs fit to roam over large areas.

Pretty basic needs, all things considered and Dr Green generally provides. Particularly now (in these challenging Covid-19 times) many horses, such as National Hunt racehorses in peak fitness are being turned out to grass at short notice. It’s important that horse owners make the transition as gradual as possible and minimize the potential for unintended consequences, such as laminitis.
