Many horses are sensitive to sugars in their diet. While some horses cannot tolerate any grass, for many they can enjoy grazing if planned and managed carefully.
The sugar content in grasses changes throughout the day and night. Grass begins producing sugar when the sun comes out, and the sugar level in grass continues to rise throughout the day. Overnight, the sugar level in grass gradually decreases. Therefore, grazing your sugar sensitive horse in the early morning hours is best. This is the time of day when the sugar is lowest in the pasture. As always, contact your vet if you have any concerns about your horse's diet. They can advise you best on your specific horse and their needs.
