The horse's digestion

Having a good digestion is the most important thing to maintain good health. If the horse does not melt the food properly, it creates unwanted slag products that can propagate into the 7 tissues of the body. The horses need free access to food because they eat about 16-18 hours a day. However, you can not give all horses free access to hay, which can be too much of the good. The horses, like us, have different energy needs, depending on the inheritance and the environment. Here we can also take into account the 5 elements that everything on our land is devoted to. (See below the five elements)

When the horse is born, it is built up of all the 5 elements in different proportions. A horse that gets more of the elements Wind and Space are usually harder to put on holes and are easier in the type. In contrast, the one who has a lot of soil and water is the heavier type of horse and is easier to become obese.

Horses can, like us, eat too much of different ducts and a horse with a lot of wind and space element can also be overweight. A horse with a lot of the fire element also wants to eat to die the dizzy feeling in the stomach and thus can also become overweight. And one is blaming the imbalance in the first place.

If the digestion does not work well, it does not matter what we stop in the horse for different preparations, it is also difficult to address it. But we can support the different organs ex with herbs when they are overloaded.

Weak combustion = The horse is difficult to accommodate the food because the digestive is weak and easily "blows out" due to excessive space and air. This horse needs to eat small portions of good quality and energy here you may need to add a boost to gain more nutrition. Here you can see the hoofs if the horse has a bad nutrient uptake because the nail is dry and there are stripes that go up and down. Steps walking is good for such a horse and regular times. Older horses usually have a low incineration rate.

Strong combustion = The horse has a good combustion, but if it gets too strong, the nutrition goes too fast through the gastrointestinal tract and the horse can not properly cope with the nutrition. If the horse is loose, it usually has too strong combustion and too much of the fire element. Here you need to slow down the combustion by not riding for hard passes, but very well, just exercise and good food. You may need to take in or put the horse in the shade in the middle of the day during the summer because the horse is already overheated.

Slow combustion = here the horse's digestion is difficult to digest with the food it eaten before it gets a new charge. There is still a lot of unsmelted food and the horse gets a "stiff" digestive fire. It does not matter, here you can help the horse to Increase the incineration and not give so much energy, straw is good for such a horse, a lot of fibers and a little energy. And a lot of exercise.
