Sugar & Starch: More Than Just an Energy Source for Horses!
Without sugar and starch, a horse cannot survive, as they are present in everything the horse consumes. They primarily serve as an energy source for the horse. However, there are several reasons why we, as horse owners, should take a closer look at the sugar and starch content in our horse feed. We interviewed Dr. Patricia Sitzenstock, an agricultural scientist, for the most important information about sugar and starch. How quickly is the energy from oats, corn, and sugar available for the horse? And why should I also check the sugar content in my hay? Essential knowledge for every horse owner!
