Example text

Fat is a dense source of calories for horses and is a useful way to increase energy in the diet without incurring many of the digestive disturbances that can occur with a diet that is high in nonstructural carbohydrates. Carbohydrates and Starches Many times, the terms starch and carbohydrate are used interchangeably. All starches are carbohydrates but not all carbohydrates are starches. Carbohydrates include sugars, starches, and fibers, all of which are found in plants, including grains, pasture, and hay.

In the horse, simple sugars are primarily digested and absorbed in the small intestine. Starches are found primarily in grains and in the immature leafy portions of plants. During digestion, starches are broken down into the simple sugar building blocks (primarily glucose), which are then absorbed primarily in the small intestine. Glucose may then be used as fuel immediately, stored as glycogen by the horse, which is usually the major fuel source for aerobic and anaerobic activity, or stored as fat, which is also a fuel source for aerobic activity.

The next segment of the gastrointestinal tract is the small intestine. The small intestine is about 21 m (70 ft) long and holds about 45 L (12 gallons). The rate of passage of ingested feed through the small intestine is fairly rapid, from 45 minutes to 8 hours. Many digestive enzymes are produced by the pancreas and released into the small intestine, and more digestive enzymes are produced by the small intestine itself. In the small intestine, proteins are digested into amino acids, which are then absorbed into the bloodstream; fats are digested into fatty acids, and soluble carbohydrates are broken down into glucose and other simple sugars, which are absorbed into the bloodstream.
