Re: RC: Re: alfalfa diet for horses that "tie-up"

<< When I STOPPED feeding alfalfa my appy mare stopped tying up.  Havent had 
 episode since.  Cant understand why someone would recommend feeding it to a
 horse that ties up.  Now Im curious to hear the answers from the ones in the
 know.   Thanks in advance.     gesa n clovis n sky >>

Heidi mentioned calcium--that's the reason you'd feed it for one kind of 
tying up. Or muscle cramping--might be a better description of this version. 
I'd be even more interested in why you think taking alfalfa away cured your 
horse of tying up.
