Hay belly and sand clear

I wanted to put in a quick plug for sand clear. We don't have sandy pastures (we have clay) but Moonshine has a hay belly and has since we've had her. I decided to try the one-week sand clear, and she slimmed down noticeably. Her hay belly is still there, but she's definitely slimmer. We went up one girth hole on each side!

So, if you have a horse with a hay belly, I'd recommend trying it. That's just my own experience.

Once you clear the stomach & intestinal tract of much sand the actual lining is better able to absorb the nutrients of the foods fed...
Seriously I write watch the horse he not become fat now his body utilizes his food better..

Now you see a difference, once a month after doing the sand test if necessary is a cheap practice to better good health...https://www.drgarfinkel.com/client-e...horse-for-sand
Reducing the sand gut also reduces chances for sand colic.
