Grazing risks

A quick blog "heads up" today, as I've had a few emails over the last week from people whose horses have become footy - most likely due to frost and consequently high levels of sugar in grazing. Most of us have got cold, clear, frosty weather - very beautiful but do be careful!
Those of you with the laminitis app will already have noticed some big spikes in risk - we have one at the moment though we've been fine up till now - so be cautious with your grass.

There is more detail about why cold, frosty weather causes increased sugar levels here: http://www.safergrass.org/pdf/AAEP.pdf
