This time of year is when we all start changing our routines as the nights get darker and colder. We bring our horses in off the grass and into their stables, even if it's just a couple of hours a day or overnight the risk of colic increases tenfold at this time. Vets have documented a large rise in calls and visits to horses with varying colic symptoms. The transition from grass to hay/haylage is one to be managed carefully and just as you would wi...th a change in hard feed. Gradually where possible manage times of turnout and stabling and increasing the amount of hay/haylage given in accordance. You should always source the best quality hay/haylage you can afford - forage is not something to try and cut corners on. This coupled with worming means the need for digestive support increases. My advise is to feed a good probiotic while the transition to stabling and while we are at risk of frost and give a "quick fix" with your wormer.
