It is just so unnatural for horses to live in a cage in a barn. I know it is necessary if you are showing them, but it still is not where they really should be.
We stand them in a 12 x 12 cage, don't let them run on hard ground where they can develop good tendons, ligaments, bone and feet, put concentrated feed in front of them for a few hours a day and nothing to eat the rest of the time and then we wonder why they have ulcers, colic, get crippled, have lousy feet, have no functioning immune system and die young after accruing huge Vet bills. We have sure done them a huge disservice, haven't we?
No horse should have a Vitamin D problem, but like indoor living people, I'm sure thousands of them do.
