Grass photosynthesizes during the day while the sun is out and the nutrients it produces are used to drive nighttime growth. It's generally safest to graze founder-prone horses in the morning because the plants have depleted their sugars through the night. One exception to this rule is frosty mornings -- cold nighttime temperatures can slow or halt the use of sugars such that the grass is dangerously sweet by the time morning rolls around. It is cold and clear in Deroche this evening, so Raven and Tonka will be confined to the paddock tomorrow. Maybe they will help David and I finish their shelter.
