Alfalfa is low in sugars but where it gets you into trouble is if you have too easy of an easy keeper that blows up on it. But in smaller amounts if the horse doesn't gain too much weight it would be good.

I'm sure she wouldn't mind answering your questions, she helped me tons when my horse came up with laminitis this summer.

You have a wonderful vet and I would make sure you keep her, wish there were more like her.

Jayydee - I've heard and read alot of negative stuff about soy - it is knwn to cause metabolic problems in humans and could possibly be one of the causes of the metabolic problems we are now seeing in horses.

Massey University in NZ are in the process of doing research on the metabolic problems


The Equine Health and Nutrition Team at Massey University is working on a project that focuses on improving the health and management of horses and ponies ridden at Pony Clubs in New Zealand.

We would like to investigate the causes of certain nutrition / management related diseases occurring in pleasure riding horses and ponies; and through the knowledge we gain, we intend to develop strategies to prevent the occurrence of these diseases. We believe our study will help improve the ‘quality of life’ for our equine companions.
As the area coordinator for the Waikatoregion, could you please forward our INVITATION to all riding members (or their parents) at Pony Clubs within the area and encourage their participation in our online survey on NZPCA Equine Health and Management.
