In this episode, Dr. Laurie Lawrence of the University of Kentucky, in Lexington, describes recent equine nutrition research from her lab, covering everything from deciphering forage composition—and an easier-to-interpret hay analysis that’s coming—to accurately monitoring obesity in our horses. She also tells us about some common misconceptions about feeding horses.
