The 500 Method Review

by Jency William (2018-03-07)

In very rare cases The 500 Method will a horse colic or founder on grass. This has nothing to do with whether or not the grass was recently cut, that is just a coincidence in most cases. The horse will founder on grass if the moisture level is at a certain point and the nights get very cold and the days get very hot. The grass will begin to produce a toxin that will cause a horse to founder. This is extremely rare and most horse owners will not have to worry about it.One instance in which grass can harm a horse is in the case of fescue poisoning. Mares who are pregnant should be taken off of fescue three months prior to foaling. This poisoning has caused many mares to abort and was a sort of epidemic in Kentucky during which numerous mares aborted their foals due to fescue poisoning. Pregnant broodmares are the only horses affected by the fescue.
