So I've been reading a bit lately about feeding yoghurt to horses for the probiotics. I'm really interested in it, but was hoping to get some feedback from some people who have used it, or who know a little more about using it as I am having trouble tracking down any solid information on pros & cons. Even if somebody has a link they could point me in the direction of!

Cheers guys!

I've given Probiotic wafers to our horses when we travel. I know it has the same enzyme or whatever it is that yogurt has in it. I'd give them straight yogurt if I thought they would eat it
Here is the website I looked into. Its more on the probiotics rather than yogurt but its good information.

Thanks Vidaloco! I'll have a read of that!

I'd definitely be intrigued to see if my horses would eat the yoghurt! Whereabouts did you get the probiotic wafers if you don't mind me asking?

They sell them locally here. Its the Probios brand that is on the link I gave. There are several internet sellers too I think
