The horse digestive system

Posted by

Dengie has made a wonderful video that describes the horse's digestive system in a way that even I can understand. We love Dengie because (except for one product - Healthy Tummy) they don't add magnesium to their products. So we recommend them to thousands of people every year. Dengie products make the ideal complement to our CORE & MORE range. And are particularly useful when trying to create diets with no artificial added magnesium in them. We have an article on that too.

I thank them for their permission to share this with you.
