As the horse ages, the digestive system becomes less effective. Adequate chewing is the first step in the digestive process, and this becomes less effective as aging teeth become more worn. This can result in loss of body condition and weak bones. Older horses need highly digestible sources of protein and calcium to make up for these losses. Lucerne Farms offers a short chopped forage called, “HI-FIBER”, that is much easier for older horses to chew and digest than common long stem hay. If you’re concerned about your older horse’s absorption of protein, fat, fiber and other essential nutrients consider Lucerne Farm’s “HI-FIBER”, quality forage feed.
I just wanted to say thank you for introducing me to your product, wish I had known about it years ago. I have a 20 year old mare who is the sloppiest eater I have ever seen. She drops half of what is in her mouth. Your representative explained to me that if I mixed your product with her grain she would: 1) eat slower, 2) salivate more, and 3) not drop the grain. Guess what? It worked! My horse is healthy, fat, and happy. I have actually cut down her grain some, now that she is eating it all! Thanks again for your product, it’s won me over!
