||P.5 right column 2nd paragraph: "[Investigators'] recent results obtained on horse model (Golomidova
et al. 2007 Kulikov et al. 2007) are nearly opposite to the findings of Furuse et al. (1986). In horses, the
cellulolytic microbial community localized in the large intestine is very complex and includes bacteria, archaea, fungi and protozoa. In contrast to rumen communities, the microbial biomass in the horse intestine is not subjected to digestion and is excreted with the faeces. The
conditions in the horse gut seem to be more stable than in many other species, as the time required to digest grass is about 72 h – much longer, than the intervals between feeding and defecations (primary source)."
