Unlike humans, a horse produces stomach acid all day. Also good to know; a horse only produces saliva while chewing. Saliva ensures the stomach acid to neutralize. No wonder horses in nature graze for an average of sixteen hours a day.
The digestion of a horse is more complex than that of a human being. Horses gathering most of its energy from the digestion of fibers in the large intestine.
