The Risk of Colic is Real,

Get Digestive Support
“By all means, there are colic cases that I think we can prevent. Part of that is based on nutrition — limiting grain as much as possible, using healthy fats in the diet, practicing routine exercise and parasite control and turning a horse out as much as possible.”

For horses that need additional calories from grain, feed smaller, more frequent meals.

Gradual Changes:

Make all feeding changes gradually.
