Tidbit from Dr. Tania Cubitt - http://performancehorsenutrition.com
Did you know? Foals often eat fresh manure from other horses, a practice known as coprophagia. Some people believe the practice is a means of establishing a bacterial population in the digestive system. Recent research however showed that foals establish a bacterial population without the practice of coprophagy. The researchers suggest bacteria on the mares udder is primarily responsible for the initial bacterial population in the foals digestive tract.
