Horse owners' relationship with alfalfa is either one of love or one of complete avoidance. Either extreme can be a disservice to your horse. Alfalfa offers quality protein, is low in sugar and starch, low in fructan, and tastes great (for your horse, that is!). But there tends to be a fear of this nutritious legume. The key is to offer a portion of the hay ration as alfalfa - feeding 100% alfalfa can present problems. Because it is high in calories, it can be wonderful for the underweight horse, but overweight horses can still benefit from it in moderation.
