I don't know what vet told her that her horse can't eat grass cause it is too sugary but I have never heard of that. Grass is the natural diet for a horse, but grass can colic a horse if it is not part of their daily diet. For example a stalled horse only gets grain and hay, if you turn that horse out on green grass it could colic him. To be able to do this you must first do it for an hour or so a day and gradually build him up until his system has adjusted to having green grass in it's diet.

Yes, they do eat grass. But some horses, like mine, cannot eat grass because it is too sugary for them, and will develop "laminitis", a hoof problem, most commonly found on ponies.

I have 3 mini horses, supposedly prone to foundering because of the sugar in grass. When are sugar levels the lowest? Day or night? Hard to keep muzzles on. Can they graze without muzzles and for how long daily?

Thanks
Patricia
