Your Horses Digestive Tract & Immune Health

Part 1 of a 4 part series

 

For the event I hosted in May, I did a visual presentation of the horses digestive tract and would like to share some of that with you!  It will be a fun journey and you will understand more about how it all operates and why, as well as how. 

 

As a  horse owner you have probably read articles on nutrition and also on digestive health, and one of a horse owner's greatest fear is "colic“ but have you ever wondered what the horses digestive track looked like or had a concept of the length of that very amazing trip your horses feed takes?

 

I have collected a few every day things that will represent each part of the horses digestive tract â I have chosen things that are similar in size, length and diameter to the various organs -  so here we go.

 

Did you know that a horse has 36 to 44 teeth, and that is where the beginning of the digestive process begin.

 

o  A horse produces approximately 10 gallons of saliva per day, which not only starts the digestive process but helps to neutralize stomach acids and helps to prevent ulcers as well. 

 

o  The chewed feed starts it journey down a 4-5 foot  section called the espphagus, which I represent with of a typical piece of garden hose; that esophagus can only go one way, a horse cannot regurgitatte.

 

o  Then from there the food enters the stomach which can hold about 3-4 gallons but typically holds 2 gallons and I represent this with a 3 gallon gas can.

 

o  The feed is mixed in the stomach with the digestive juices and the stomach usually empty's in to what is called the fore gut within about 30 minutes to begin its journey..that is why small frequent feedings, or using a slow feeder is one of the best ways to feed horses, so that the stomach is never empty thus preventing ulcers.

Customer Testimonial

 

I have had my gelding on Equine Zyne for over a year now and he recently had surgery. Not once during the entire process, before/ during/post surgery, has he had any loose manure or lost any coat condition or weight. Neither has he exhibited any of the symptoms for ulcers. I am positive it is due to being on Equine Zyme. I always receive compliments on how he looks and he is always a happy guy. He will always be on Equine Zyme and I recommend this to everyone!
