Do you know any information about the nutrition of the horse? If you do not, let’s explore in our article!

Equine nutrition is the diet for equine species, including wild horses, domestic animals, donkeys, donkeys, and other equines, including crossbreds. Correct and balanced nutrition is an important component of proper horse care, especially nutrition very important for top-performing race horses as well as for horses used for work or in special periods such as when breeding horses.

A white horse is grazing freely in the field, normally, every day the horse is free in the field and can earn about 40% of the food needed for them.

Horses are herbivores that feed mainly on coarse fibrous foods such as grass. When necessary, they also eat other plant foods, such as leaves, fruit, and bark, but are usually herbivores, not cuttings or leaves. Unlike ruminants, with their complex system of stomachs, the equine decomposes cellulose in the “cecum” (cecum), part of the colon. Their teeth formula is nearly perfect, with incisors for cutting to gnaw food, and molars for crushing food that grow behind the crevices.

In fact, horses like to eat a small amount of food throughout the day (crossbreeding), as they are found in the wild when grazing in pastures. The horse’s digestive system is a bit complicated and affects their diet, they are prone to colic which is the leading cause of death in horses, horses requiring clean, high quality, well-fed Given at regular intervals, and can get sick if there is a sudden change in their diet, horses are also susceptible to mold and toxins. Horse rearing is generally more leisurely than other types of livestock, especially domestic breeds, they simply eat and drink, just fresh grass, rice flour or molasses water. They eat omnivores.
