<< I breed/race Standardbreds one of my stallions(not my stud) is a bleeder.
is doing well - I am not looking for a treatment - he is on excellent
treaments. I am curious about the rumours I have heard at the track that
alfalfa hay causes horses to become bleeders or keeps them from improving
once they are bleeders. If any of you have insight rather then hearsay into
this matter I would really appreciate a response as all my babies love
dairy quality alfalfa hay.

Thank you very much!

Do you know where your horse is bleeding from? Dusty air can cause bleeding
from several places in the respiratory tract. Old or dusty Alfalfa is
well-known to cause and aggravate this kind of condition--at least, that's
what I've heard.
