The word Metallic is enough to turn me off feeding these minerals to my horse, I wanted something more natural. My research brought me to a brand of horse minerals that are plant based and all natural. With 74 plus plant ingredients to keep any horse healthy and happy. See the list of Plant Minerals below.
- Sea Plants

Humans usually don't go well on high starch, or high sugar, which lead to diseases like diabetes. Diabetes can raise the risk of heart attack or stroke by 50%. If we can improve a horse diet with healthy feed and natural supplements, it has to be better than feeding them unhealthy feed filled with sugar and starch.
If humans can get a disease like diabetes, it is crazy to think that a horse would be immuned to this. Horses shouldn't have too much sugar, it can lead to laminitis and even insulin resistance, much like a person with type 2 diabetes. It's important for us to give our horses a well balanced diet, so they stay gut healthy and avoid diseases such as insulin resistance and laminitis.
Minerals play an important part in a horses overall health and in my opinion, natural minerals are a better choice to help a horses digestive system and overall well being. Horses can't tell us how they feel or what is causing them pain and discomfort but they can show us by either physical, emotional or by their overall behaviour. Most bad behaviour by a horse is caused by pain, or if they are uncomfortable, if we don't listen to them these behaviours will only get worse and could cause harm to the horse owner. To stop this from happening, a well balanced diet is essential... listen to your horse.
