Winter to Spring Transition: Safeguard Your Horse from Lush Grass Risks!

Spring is in the air, and with it comes the lush green grass! 🌿

While it's a beautiful sight, it can also pose a risk to our equine companions, especially those transitioning from winter hay. Did you know that sudden access to rich, spring grass can lead to digestive issues like colic or laminitis in horses?

That's why a gradual introduction is crucial! Slowly acclimating your horse to the new grass allows their digestive system to adapt, reducing the risk of complications.

Remember, some horses, particularly those with metabolic conditions like insulin resistance or Cushing's disease, are even more susceptible to the effects of lush grass. Extra caution and careful monitoring are key to keeping them healthy during the transition period. Your horse's health and well-being are worth the patience!
