Did you know that vitamin D also affects your horse's immunity?

Vitamin D is produced in the body under the influence of sunlight. Now that the horses can go out to pasture again, this can also boost immunity.
 
But take care!
 
It is important that your horse makes a gradual transition from stable to pasture to allow the digestive system to get used to it. The processing of sugars can be particularly problematic for some horses. As the sugar content in grass can change from day to day, it is important to bear this in mind.
 
Grass produces fructan through photosynthesis. When grass growth is not inhibited by low temperatures, drought or a lack of nutrients, fructane is consumed and horses can safely graze in the field.
