[RC] re: stress busters for horses - Cindy Collins

OK, feed gurus. With all the bad press that alfalfa gets, this articles says to feed it???? And clover, which usually causes scratches for horses with white legs. CC

"Treating ulcers involves reducing horses' grain intake and feeding hay rich in alfalfa and clover. According to Sarah L. Ralston, VMD, PhD, Dipl. ACVN, associate professor in the Department of Animal Sciences at Rutgers University, both alfalfa and clover are high in calcium, which absorbs excess stomach acid in horses and humans."
