Electrolytes for Horses

Electrolytes for Horses

December 1, 2021

In this episode, Sarah Braithwaite discusses how to understand what levels of the electrolyte minerals you need to feed to horses. Electrolyte supplements for horses are important when a horse sweats or eats forage that is short of electrolyte minerals.

Getting levels right as matched to the grass, hay or haylage your horse eats can mean you can avoid a horse tying up or just being very lethargic. The more activity your horse does, the more your horse loses electrolytes through sweating the more crucial it becomes to get electrolytes right in your horses daily diet.

So how is it best to support your horse with the electrolyte minerals needed? What are electrolyte minerals? Do you need an electrolyte supplement for your horse and why pay attention to the amounts in your grass and hay?

Summer Horse Feeding

Summer Horse Feeding

July 2, 2021

When summer arrives, we love our horses having more grazing time with the sun on their backs. In this episode, Sarah Braithwaite discusses a horse supplement approach that starts with the grass your horse will be eating over the summer period and answers the question “What is the best feed for horses when they are in the field”?

Regardless of how well cared for your pasture is there will always be low levels of certain nutrients which over time can cause insufficiency and even full-blown deficiencies.  Understanding how to address this through the summer months will keep your horse healthy, happy and more resilient.
