They are healthy and happy.
The latest studies show that diets high in NSC are quite unhealthy for equine digestive systems. They have also shown to cause a number of health issues such as IR, founder, laminitis, ulcers, hindgut acidosis, colic, unhealthy hooves, etc ect ect.
I will never understand why people stay stuck in their ways instead of doing the research and adjusting their feed programs for a healthier result/animal.
Anyways.... OP: No, a handful or two wont hurt her. It's when you feed lbs of it that it can/does have negative effects.
