Re: [RC] molasses - was tying up question (long) - Heidi Smith

JMO, but I think there's as much variation among horses in their ability
handle simple sugars as there is among humans.  Some humans have a
metabolism, activity level, genetic background and lifetime diet, and so
variably sensitive to carbohydrates, the most extreme cases of intolerance
being diabetics.

Ditto that, Susan, and thanks for going into the details.  Horses are not
just big fuzzy "black boxes" into which one inputs the magic formula and
expects the magic results to come out.  While there is a general theme to
the way they do things, there is SO much individual variation at every
little cellular function that in the final summation, there can be
considerable difference from horse to horse, whether it be in how they
handle simple carbs or how their guts and kidneys and sweat glands deal with
e-lytes and fluids...
