The nutritional needs of older horses generally already increase, but when it gets even colder, the horse needs even more energy to keep itself warm, for example. This also increases the nutritional requirement. You can then support your horse by giving extra soaked roughage, the senior cobs from Höveler. You can also increase the daily amount of concentrates slightly. Suitable concentrates for an older horse are, for example, the Pur.senior and the oldie mix from Höveler.
During the winter season, there can also be a lot of precipitation. As a result, (non-drained) paddocks and meadows can get very wet. When a horse stands too much and too long in puddles of water or very wet mud, mug can form. How is the mug created then?

The weather is less thirsty and this can ensure that horses drink less. Nevertheless, a horse needs 30 to 35 liters of water per day. Do you notice that your horse drinks (too) little in the winter season? Try giving him/her lukewarm/warm water. With colder weather, they can sometimes like this more and so your horse gets enough moisture.
Have they been beautiful sunny days? But is there a lot of night frost and does your horse go out on the meadow during the day? Then make sure that your horse does not get laminitis! When the sun shines and the soil temperature is 5 degrees or higher, grass is already growing, will it freeze at night? Then the blades of grass retain a lot of sugar and when a horse ingests too many sugars, he/she can become laminitis.
