A few minutes extra of your time to make their stall comfortable and fun will make the world of difference to your horse or pony!
With cases of laminitis and EMS at an all time high, many horses and ponies will be on box rest. We all know that they need to be on low sugar and starch diets, fed adequate amounts of a suitable forage, fed according to their body weight and have their nutrient requirements met.
Box rest coupled with health issues are stressful times for our horses and ponies, which makes it even more important to try to enrich their environments to help keep stress levels to a minimum. Feeding to ensure both digestive and behavioural health, will make a world of difference to them! Just because they have laminitis, EMS or are overweight, it doesn’t mean that they just have to have a soaked net of hay in the corner of their stables!
You can split their soaked hay rations into different nets and hang them around their stables in different places, put some in a hay ball, some on the floor, make up bucket of a suitable hay replacer, a snack ball with a handful of hi fibre treats in, hide a couple of carrots in their stables for them to find, hang some cow parsley, cleavers and other herbage around their stables! A few minutes extra of your time will make the world of difference to your horse or pony!
The picture below belongs to one of my clients...I think you’ll all agree...she’s done a wonderful job of enriching her horses environment! There’s carrots hidden in his hay and around his stable too for him to find!
