For spring and summer they all get a tablespoon of minced garlic straight from the grocery store. This helps with the bugs.
For the fall and winter we top dress their food with table salt to encourage drinking.
For something the good bacteria can hold on to in the gut, we feed pysllium. This is something we feed more in the winter, but continue especially for Winston and Rosemary into the summer.
Another product for good gut health we use is Ration Plus, a type of probio. Since we feed rough hay, Rosemary tends to get a hay belly. This helps her keep pushing it through, so less of a hay belly develops.
For the two over twenty, we give them lysine. This is an amino acid that helps in muscle production. Older horses have a harder time with this, so we give them some help.
For joint health they all get Corta flex. It is an amazing product.
For pain management the two over twenty get BL solution.
Finally for healthy omega IIIs and coat health, they all get Flax.
Combined with great mineral pellets we have a feeding program to be happy about.
Separate from their meal, we offer them free choice Rush Creek loose minerals. I love to see who really wants them and who only needs a little. Most of the time Rosemary inhales hers and then given a chance will walk around eating everybody elses.
