The Lucerne Truths! ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒฑ

๐ŸŒฑ ๐™‡๐™ž๐™š๐™จ ๐˜ผ๐™—๐™ค๐™ช๐™ฉ ๐™‡๐™ช๐™˜๐™š๐™ง๐™ฃ๐™š

๐Ÿด I am having the time of my life sharing these myth-busting articles on equine nutrition and you guys seems to be really enjoying them too! Today, letโ€™s debunk some common misconceptions about lucerne/alfalfa, or ๐˜”๐˜ฆ๐˜ฅ๐˜ช๐˜ค๐˜ข๐˜จ๐˜ฐ ๐˜š๐˜ข๐˜ต๐˜ช๐˜ท๐˜ข if youโ€™d like to get fancy.

๐ŸŒฑ Myth #1: Lucerne is high in sugar and soaking it helps to remove some of the sugar content.

๐Ÿด Truth #1: Lucerne is high in protein, but not high in sugar. While it is true that soaking hay helps to remove some of the sugar content, soaking lucerne is pointless as there are no high sugar concentrations to begin with. Soaking does not remove protein or calories.

๐ŸŒฑ Myth #2: Lucerne will make horses hot.

๐Ÿด Truth #2: As mentioned already, lucerne is a fantastic source of protein which converts to energy when consumed by the horse. Lucerne itself is a source of slower-release energy in comparison to cereal grains and grain by-products because it is low in sugar and starch but high in digestible fibre. Itโ€™s often not the lucerne itself causing โ€œhotโ€ behaviour, but an excess of energy input relevant to the horseโ€™s energy output. Feeding a diet that is balanced and provides energy sources that are appropriate for the individualโ€™s activity level will usually mitigate behavioural โ€œissues.โ€

๐ŸŒฑ Myth #3: Lucerne is comparable to other hay types for ulcer prevention and gastrointestinal health.

๐Ÿด Truth #3: Any low sugar and starch hay is going to aid in the prevention of ulcers and support gastrointestinal health, however lucerne comes with the advantage of being high in bioavailable calcium. Not only is this source of highly bioavailable calcium beneficial for horses with higher calcium requirements such as breeding and growing horses, or horses grazing on high oxalate pastures, it is also fantastic at neutralising and buffering gastric due to itโ€™s alkaline profile.

๐ŸŒฑ Myth #4: Lucerne is suitable for laminitic/metabolic horses.

๐Ÿด Truth #4: While lucerne does tick the box of being low in sugar and starch, itโ€™s quality protein content can be a trigger for some laminitic and metabolic equines and it is therefore a โ€œmaybeโ€ feed for this category of horse. Horses who are actively laminitic should not be fed lucerne (or any high protein feed), as it is not a situation where you want to be conducting tests with โ€œpotentiallyโ€ suitable food sources.

๐ŸŒฑ Myth #5: Lucerne will make a horse produce poorly formed or watery manure.

๐Ÿด Truth #5: Horses can be intolerant or allergic to any food source, but lucerne being the cause of scouring or diarrhoea is usually because it has been introduced to the diet too quickly, or because it is high in digestible fibre and the horse isnโ€™t intaking adequate indigestible fibre elsewhere in the diet. Feeding lower quality and slightly stalky lucerne hay can help to overcome this issue.

๐ŸŒฑ So tell me, do you love or hate lucerne? Do you feed it daily or only on occasion? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below and as always, please feel welcome to share this article if you enjoyed it. ๐Ÿ˜„

Get to know your Horses with a little bit of knowledge from Stable-Ised Equine ๐Ÿ˜

๐Ÿ’  ๐˜ฝ๐™ž๐™ค๐™ฉ๐™ž๐™ฃ: ๐™๐™๐™š ๐˜ฝ๐™ž๐™ค

๐Ÿด Just about every horse person will think of hooves when they hear or read the word โ€œBiotinโ€ฆโ€ but does Biotin ๐™–๐™˜๐™ฉ๐™ช๐™–๐™ก๐™ก๐™ฎ need to be supplemented, and does it ๐™–๐™˜๐™ฉ๐™ช๐™–๐™ก๐™ก๐™ฎ work to improve hoof growth and integrity? Letโ€™s debunk some myths!

๐Ÿ’  Vitamin B7, otherwise known as Biotin, is an important aspect of equine nutrition and health. Biotin is necessary for the production of keratin, which is the main protein that helps to produce a durable and high-integrity hoof capsule. What is often overlooked, is that Vitamin B7 is also a vital component of carbohydrate, protein, and fat metabolisation, as well as just about every other equine biological process.

๐Ÿด Myth #1: Biotin will improve a horseโ€™s hoof growth and integrity.

๐Ÿ’  Truth #1: Biotin will only improve a horseโ€™s hoof growth and integrity if there is an underlying deficiency. Given it takes anywhere from 9-12 months for a horse to grow out an entirely new hoof capsule, it can also take this long for the true benefits of a Biotin supplement to be observed.

๐Ÿด Myth #2: Biotin supplements are necessary and should be added to the diet.

๐Ÿ’  Truth #2: Most good quality vitamin and mineral supplements or complete feeds will contain a serving of Biotin to act as somewhat of a safety net for horses who may not be ๐™จ๐™ฎ๐™ฃ๐™ฉ๐™๐™š๐™จ๐™ž๐™จ๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™œ their own Biotin adequately.

๐Ÿด Myth #3: โ€œSynthesising?โ€ Horses canโ€™t make their own Biotin.

๐Ÿ’  Truth #3: Like all B Vitamins, horses can and do synthesise their own Vitamin B7 (Biotin) during the microbial fermentation process. This means that a horse on a forage-first diet who has a happy hindgut is perfectly capable of meeting their Biotin requirements without the need for a specific Biotin supplement.

๐Ÿด Myth #4: Horses who are on a forage-first diet and are seemingly happy and healthy but still have poor hoof growth and integrity must need an additional Biotin supplement.

๐Ÿ’  Truth #4: Biotin is not the only nutrient that supports hoof growth and integrity. Adding more Biotin to the diet of a horse who isnโ€™t deficient wonโ€™t do any harm, but it also wonโ€™t do any good if the remaining deficiencies and imbalances are not rectified. Copper, zinc, and omega-3 fatty acids are all nutrients that are often lacking in the domestic equine diet, and many people are too quick to jump to a Biotin supplement before considering that there may be something else not quite right.

๐Ÿด Myth #5: Horses on a 6-8+ week trim cycle who experience breakage, pathologies, and separation will benefit from a Biotin supplement.

๐Ÿ’  Truth #5: No, these horses should be brought back to a 4-5 week trim cycle, have their hooves thoroughly cleaned and treated between trims, and should have other components of their diet and environment reviewed.

๐Ÿด Vitamin B7 is a vital component of every equineโ€™s diet, but Biotin supplements are not the holy grail of hoof health if you havenโ€™t first assessed and addressed dietary balance and hoof maintenance. Biotin supplements, or any hoof supplements for that matter, are my last resort because chances are the horse just isnโ€™t being fed a balanced and species-appropriate diet to begin with.

๐Ÿ’  Iโ€™d love to read your thoughts on this article in the comments below. Please also feel welcome to share! ๐Ÿ˜„

A little knowledge for your evening!

๐Ÿ“– ๐™Ž๐™ฉ๐™ค๐™ง๐™ž๐™š๐™จ ๐˜ผ๐™—๐™ค๐™ช๐™ฉ ๐™Ž๐™–๐™ก๐™ฉ

๐Ÿด I love reading about misconceptions when it comes to feeding horses, but today Iโ€™d like to debunk some common myths about good old sodium chloride.

๐Ÿง‚ Myth #1: Salt only needs to be fed when the weather is hot.

๐Ÿด Truth #1: Salt needs to be fed 365 days a year because it is vital for many bodily processes and is excreted in sweat, saliva, mucous and urine. Even in the midst of winter, horses need salt.

๐Ÿง‚ Myth #2: Horses instinctively know to drink water regularly, especially when they are hot and sweaty.

๐Ÿด Truth #2: A horseโ€™s thirst reflex is triggered by sodium, which is a component of salt. Horsesโ€™ sodium requirements need to be met in order to seek water.

๐Ÿง‚ Myth #3: A horse can meet their sodium and chloride requirements with a salt block alone.

๐Ÿด Truth #3: Unlike cattle, horses do not have an abrasive tongue and are not designed to lick harsh surfaces to extract nutrients. While it is technically possible for a horse to consume their daily salt requirement from a salt block, it is much less work and more physiologically-appropriate for them to consume loose salt that is either provided in a meal or left out free-choice.

๐Ÿง‚ Myth #4: Horses know what nutrients they need and can self-medicate with supplements such as vitamins and minerals.

๐Ÿด Truth #4: Salt is the only nutrient horses have been studied and proven to actively seek out when it is required. They will not seek out other nutrients โ€œbecause they know they need it.โ€ Look at how much salt and molasses (palatable additives) are added to free-choice supplements.

๐Ÿง‚ Myth #5: Himalayan rock salt is better for horses than plain salt.

๐Ÿด Truth #5: Himalayan rock salt contains naturally occurring components other than sodium and chloride. Some may view this as a positive; however, it is usually a more expensive means of supplementing salt, and often contains traces of iron which almost never needs to be supplemented given horses are generally oversupplied iron by their forage intake alone.

๐ŸŽ Your horse should be receiving a minimum of 10g of salt per 100kg of body weight each day; typically more after exercise, intense weather, or illness.
