Abstract

Three types of diets for horses, including lactating mares, hobby, and sport horses were prepared. The apparent digestibility of major nutrients was determined by using endogenous indicators [4M-HCl-insoluble ash (AIA) and manganese] and by total collection of faeces in a digestibility trial with rabbits. There was no significant difference in digestion coefficient between the methods using different indicators. The digestion coefficients given by manganese are closely correlated to that of AIA. Comparing of the methods used, the digestion coefficients of nutrients obtained in the digestibility trial with rabbits differed from that of indicator methods. Primarily the digestibility of crude fibre was significantly lower. It was about 20-30% of the values obtained by the endogenous markers. The digestibility of crude protein was lower in both diets for hobby and sport horses than that of diet for lactating mares (62.04; 62.90; and 69.65%, respectively). It can be explained by the lower crude fibre content of the diets (7%) than the optimal for rabbits (13-16%). As a conclusion, the endogenous indicator may give a good tendency of predicted values, but the rabbit model, especially for the digestibility of fibre, should be treated with precautions for horses.
