Why do we need to supplement our horses with minerals?
Minerals are essential to help horses mature, maintain energy, perform and to assist in preventing health problems. Mineral intake requirements for horses will vary depending on their weight, age, breed, workload and available food intake.
Horses naturally obtain their mineral nutrition through the food they eat. Ideally, horses would roam free, grazing pastures of their choice and be able to seek out those foods that are high in minerals. However, in today’s equine world, many horses are kept in stables, yards and pastures, and/or are fed a variety of hay, grain or processed feeds. In many cases, horses are only fed what the horse owner can afford. Many of our pastures are not only weathered, overgrazed, overworked and over fertilised, they are also depleted of nutrition through a lack of minerals in the soil, hence the need to supplement.
A broad spectrum of minerals can replenish many of the minerals that your horse may be lacking in its diet. Plant derived minerals, obtained from an organic or natural source, are by far, more readily available to animals than metallic derived, earth or rock minerals.
Always look for plant derived minerals, as they have already been through a process called photosynthesis, making them much easier and safer for a horse’s digestive system to absorb. This enhances any horse’s wellbeing, as they deliver instant nutrition, unlike rock and metallic derived minerals, which may contain heavy metals. A build up of heavy metals in the body of any living creature is dangerous to the health and wellbeing of the animal.
