Hello Dr. Dan:
A friend recommended the Red Cal supplement to me for my three horses and one pony. No one would touch it. She said not to worry… just keep it out for them "free choice". She said she sees the horses go after it when there is a big weather change.
Voila. That is what happened. When a storm is blowing in, the horses tear into their buckets of Red Cal.
Is there an explanation for this behavior? I'm going to keep using it. It's the ONLY salt product any of my horses will touch at all.
Absolutely.! The article called "Perfect Pastures" and the one on "Salt and Minerals" that is available in the magazine and other links http://WhatToFeedYourHorse.com and http://DrDanLibrary.com (as referenced below) explains the issue with potassium and why it is so important. Thanks for sharing and asking!
Thank you Dr. Dan,
