Hello!
A horse is staying at our yard to be trained, and his owner sent a supply of cayenne pepper to be added to his feed. She claims this is very beneficial for the horses digestion. Eternally curious about everything that might improve horses welfare, I would appreciate any comments on this.
Thanks in advance

Various pepper products have been used internally to stimulate digestion in people. However chronic overdosing in humans has resulted in diarrhea, stomach inflammation, and even kidney and liver damage. I so not know how much, would be too much though.
