A quick and dirty math lesson

I have been asked several times in the last week how to find or where “where do you see” the NSC on a given hay test. What is NSC and how do you find it on your test? I think by now that we all know what NSC is and why those with metabolically challenged… Read more »

“I’ve just bought hay for my metabolically challenged horse. I was told the hay was ‘low sugar’ and possibly the sugar was ‘below 10.’” What does that mean? As owner’s it is our responsibity to advocate for our horses. We make all the decisions that affect their health. We chose where they live, what they… Read more »
