A NEEDED SOLUTION!
By nature, horses evolved to eat grass, up to 16 hours a day. Many horses today do not have this option. As a result, horses constantly secrete high levels of gastric acid, often leading to stomach ulcers. Over 90% of race horses and 60% of show horses suffer from ulcers.
The act of chewing produces saliva, a natural antacid for horses. Vices such as cribbing, are often the result of horses with ulcers seeking comfort from not having food in their stomach.
