A daily nutritional supplement that provides a source of magnesium and thiamine (B1), that is deficient in the pasture. When a horse is not receiving enough magnesium and thiamine from their diet, they can become spooky, grumpy and muscle sore. Pazture Mag is perfect to feed in times of grass growth.
Vitamin (B1) plays a crucial role in the proper transmission of nerve impulses, allowing horses to feel more focused and at ease.
Why feed Magnesium to Horses?
Magnesium plays an important part in nerve and muscle function. Horses who are deficient show signs of nervousness, excitability, are jumpy, have tight sore backs which is not related to saddle fit. They have muscle tremors and skin hypersensitivity.
A magnesium deficient horse is likely to have a poor tolerance to work, fatigue quickly and prone to tying up. They build up lactic acid more quickly which is why magnesium deficient horses sometimes have behavior problems. They fatigue more quickly after work and don't recover as well.
When a horse gets excited it's body uses magnesium to calm down and relax. The lower the magnesium level, the lower the threshold for new stress.
Magnesium deficient horses can start out calm during exercise. As the session progresses they become more spooky and stressed.
