Re: ALFALFA/foot soreness Fw: Extremely skinny just diagnosed cushings horse in Australia please help
Mandy, Im curious about this statement:
....."Do NOT feed alfalfa. There is a chemical in alfalfa that makes many horses foot sore."....
What is the problematic chemical? My PPID/IR mare is super sensitive to everything but actually does ok on alfalfa (I was feeding Chaffhaye when we were competing heavily last year). I know PPID is progressive so I want to learn about the alfalfa link to foot soreness and avoid it if possible!
