Learn Why...Horse Digestion is ?Just Plain Different? in Dr. Getty?s?March 28th?Teleseminar
Are you feeding your horse like a cow' Like a dog' Or perhaps? like yourself' ?Whoa!
Here are some ?just plain different? facts to consider when you're feeding your horse:
- Horses eat hay. Cows eat hay. Dogs don't.
- Cows have a large fermentation vat filled with microbes that can digest hay. Horses have a smaller vat. Dogs have a tiny, virtually non-functional one.
- Cows are ruminants. Dogs are not. Horses are not.
- Cows "chew their cud" constantly digesting, bringing it back into their mouths, to re-chew. Horses do not. Dogs do not.
- Dogs can comfortably go for hours without anything to eat. Cows cannot. Horses cannot.
Understanding how the horse's sensitive digestive system works makes it abundantly clear why feeding your horse like a horse?and only like a horse?is critically important. Join Dr. Juliet Getty?on Thursday, March 28, 2013for a 90 minute teleseminar on ?Horse Digestion - Just Plain Different!?
