Calming a Flighty, Excitable Horse
Do you have a flighty, excitable horse that needs calming down? Maybe your horse is lacking in magnesium...
Here a few signs of a magnesium deficiency:
- Horses and ponies that have a deficiency in magnesium may show signs of nervousness, excitability and muscle shaking.
- Some horses become especially "fresh" in the springtime. The fast growth rate of grass in spring means that spring grazing has an increased sugar content and is also often deficient in magnesium. As a result many horses become much more excitable, some become almost unrideable - feeding a horse feed supplement containing magnesium can help to control this, but this should never be used in place of good grazing management.
- Stress in the horse, caused by training, travelling and equestrian competition, can also cause a magnesium deficit and an excess of calcium - this can result in excitability, tension and muscle cramps.
We've had a lot of positive feedback from horse owners regarding the Coleby Lick (which contains dolomite; a source of magnesium and calcium), in that, their horse(s) have calmed down significantly after being fed the Coleby Lick on a regular basis. In addition to the dolomite, the Coleby Lick contains, Kelp Meal, Sulphur, Copper Sulphate and a small amount of Himalayan Salt - all beneficial ingredients to ensure the overall well-being of your animal.
