Equine Grass Sickness Fund

Equine grass sickness (EGS) is a debilitating and frequently fatal disease of horses, ponies and donkeys, which commonly presents as impaired activity of the gut, caused by nervous system damage.

Cases occur frequently, but not exclusively, in northern European countries, particularly Great Britain. The disease occurs almost exclusively in horses with access to grass, but even though the condition was first identified around 1907, the true cause of EGS remains unknown.
