The horse plays a very different role in today?s society: it once served as a ?workhorse?, later it was used in sports. Now the horse is our friend and recreation partner, a change that has not necessarily been reflected in feeding. Many horses are overfed with cereals and energy-rich feed. The number of overweight horses and the resulting problems such as metabolic disorders has risen drastically. The newly developed LeichtGenuss from AGROBS has been created specifically to tackle this problem.
