New research suggests Lucerne can be a useful component in managing horses with metabolic disturbances such as laminitis. These horses require diets low in
Non Structural Carbohydrates. KER found that during the acute (emergency) period of a laminitic episode, Alfalfa (Lucerne) could be a suitable forage to feed. This would also suggest it would be a complimentary component in the diet to safeguard against frequent laminitic episodes.
When lucerne is introduced into the diet correctly and fed in conjuction with a balanced diet you should have a horse that feels good and exhibits natural enthusiasm toward work. Hoof quality and coat condition can also improve.
Nutrition is the one of the most important aspects of horse ownership - muscles, tissue, cells, breed, type, performance, gestation and your horses longterm health depend on quality nutrition.
