Feeding to avoid colic 

Reducing starchy feed concentrates, providing constant access to forage, keeping a consistent feed program, and regular turnout and exercise are the best ways to reduce your horse’s risk for colic. Learn some specific techniques you can implement in your horse’s feed and care program >>


Changing your feed and management program isn’t always an option. And even if it is, there are other factors that influence your horse’s health. Learn more about a supplement that supports total digestive health >>
