                      Minerals and Vitamins

 

We have found that quite often land grazed regularly by horses becomes 'horse sick', consequently the minerals in the soil become 'locked up', which results in the minerals not being released into the plants.

 

The best solution to this is to improve the land. But, where this is not possible, you can feed a range of natural supplements in your horse's daily ration.

 

The following table is only a guide. The soil type, weather and time of harvesting affect the mineral and vitamin content of all foods.
