Equine Services

Understanding equine nutrition is of critical importance to a horse’s health and well-being and has radically changed in recent years. As we learn more about how horses digest and utilize nutrients from feed, feed choices have broadened and changed. The importance of sugars, fructans, and fibre digestibility is better recognized.
