Is it true that horses that are fed alfalfa drink more water?

Yes. Horses that are fed alfalfa have a tendency to drink more water. As a result, horses being fed this high protein and mineral rich legume have wetter stalls. Keeping these stalls dry and ammonia-free may mean you are spending additional money on bedding and labor. If you would like to consider switching from feeding alfalfa to feeding a grass or partial grass-hay diet, Mid-Rivers would be happy to assist you in developing, and transitioning to a balanced grass-hay feeding program.
