For horses on
All forage is high in potassium and nitrates compared to a horse’s daily requirement. Horses are equipped to excrete the excess which normally functioning horses do successfully. However, due to our soils, weather, grass types, grass management and general use of grazing paddocks, the grass that domestic horses are consuming is often stressed. This means that the grass is trying to grow to reach maturity but this cannot happen because it has been eaten well before it reaches an appropriate stage of growth. Potassium is a vital mineral for plant growth and so plants absorb potassium which is abundant in the soil during early stages of growth. This is why stressed grass becomes high in potassium. The plant is constantly struggling to grow and so the potassium quickly builds up, resulting in potassium spikes.
In the wild, horses might be exposed to potassium spikes a few times per year. However, horses grazing a ‘green carpet’ all year round, whether short and over-grazed or longer, lush actively growing grasses – as in the spring or late
Horses exposed to unsuitable forage and grazing tend to have a high urine PH as a result of excessive potassium. Feeding Salt helps to correct this but when the horse becomes truely Grass Affected, then extra help is needed to bring and keep the PH back to normal (7). This is where GrazEzy helps.
