That beautiful spring grass is just begging to be grazed — but for horses sensitive to sugar, danger might be lurking. Kentucky Performance Products has all the information you need in a helpful video.
Lush, cool season spring grass is packed full of vitamins, minerals and energy, but it is also high in sugar! Sugar sensitive horses grazing on lush pasture can develop colic and laminitis. Sensitive horses are often restricted from grazing and maintained on dried forages. The potency of vitamin E declines very quickly once forages are harvested and dried. Therefore, horses that are restricted from grazing are at risk for developing vitamin E deficiencies and should be supplemented with natural vitamin E.

About Kentucky Performance Products: The feeling you get when you watch your child ride.
It’s why we do what we do.
It is why we search high and low for the perfect childproof horse. It is why we give up our Saturday afternoons to cheer them on at a horse show. It is why we spend hours getting stains out of their show clothes. It is why we teach them to hang a fan up on the stall in hot weather. It is why we make sure they learn to keep TWO full buckets of water in the stall. Here at Kentucky Performance Products it is why we developed Summer Games® Electrolyte that will keep the horses in your life hydrated and healthy. It is why the horse that matter to you matters to us. Not sure which horse supplement best meets your horse’s needs? We are here to help. Contact us at 859-873-2974 or visit our website at KPPusa.com.
