    Default High Protein Diet & Ulcers?

    I was just poking around on the Merial website, and found this statement:

    "The horse you love is probably not constantly grazing. Therefore, with high-protein diets and the added stresses of your horse’s busy lifestyle, excess acid can easily build up and cause painful stomach ulcers."

    I missed the fact session where high protein diets cause excess acid?

    I thougth there was some thought to the protein content in alfalfa helping for prevention (in addition to the calcium content). Deltawave, I know you have an explanation for the calcium thing, but can't remember it.

    But what about the statement about high protein diets? This was new to me when I just read this!
