MINERAL SOLUTIONS

FACT Our UK grasslands are deficient in most of the essential
          minerals.

FACT Changes in the chemistry of grass cause changes in the
          chemistry of the horse, with
m
any chronic health conditions
          being due to unbalanced micronutrients.

FACT Most alleged behavioural issues will resolve by feeding
          minerals balanced to our known UK deficiencies.


Here's a mind-boggling statistic - 50 years ago, carrots had 75% more magnesium than today!  Just one example of how our soil nutrient levels have changed over the years, and why we need a solution to help provide our horses with an effective nutritional foundation. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15637215

It's easy to take our soil for granted, that is, until we lose it. The soil beneath our feet is arguably one of the most under-appreciated assets on the planet - without it, life would largely cease to exist while, when at its prime, this ‘black gold’ gives life in so many ways. 

However, our UK grasslands are commonly deficient in many essential minerals, with changes in the grass chemistry causing significantly changes in the chemistry of the horse.  This directly - and adversely - affects the horse's system, all the more so when over-grazed on restricted paddock space.

The NRC Guidelines are there for a reason, yet most commercial 'one-size-fits-all' balancers rarely get the mineral ratios balanced to the defined guidelines.  This can mean that your commercial balancer may make your horse's dietary mineral levels even more unbalanced.  For example, most add iron and manganese which are already too high in our UK grasslands, acting as antagonists and blocking the uptake of nutrients.

Many also add calcium, again at high levels in many areas, which without the correct ratio of magnesium to balance it for healthy cellular energy exchange can cause our horses to seem spooky/explosive, and raring to go - what we typically see when the spring grass comes through. Those grass sugars get the blame, yet it's more likely to be too much calcium and not enough magnesium.


If we don't get the balance right, we get it wrong at our peril - and our horse's.  Nutrients play a vital role in a wide range of biochemical systems which affect virtually every metabolic function in the horse, and I speak from personal experience.  Getting my connemara, Murphy, minerally-balanced, literally saved his life, and my sanity.  See * About Us & Our Horses for the full story.
