[RC] Wood/bark chewing - Ramspott.Kathy

I've finally narrowed down who is chewing up the board fence and the bark
off the trees.  It is the arabian mare.  She gets grain, has free access to
hay and pasture and a mineral salt block.

Should I look into additional mineral/vitamin additives to her daily grain
ration?  She has 3 companions so should not be bored, gets worked 3 - 4 x
per week.

I will be asking the vet when he comes out monday for their wnv boosters but
thought I'd ask you folks too.

There's quite a bit of sugar and lemon flavoring in Perform N Win. That is
what attracts him. My horses are the same way. But as a friend found out,
NEVER count on your horses willingness to voluntarily consume electrolytes.
That's when they will turn their nose up at them. Plan on giving them what
you have determined that they need based on conditions. If they will consume
some of this mixed in a bucket of water great! But still know how much has
gone into them and how much more you want in them. Have your dosing syringe
handy.

Subject: [RC] eating electrolytes


I just recently starting using Perform N Win electrolytes.  Today, after a 
fairly short ride (although we were working in plowed fields some of the 
time), I was messing around with my new guy and offered him some Perform N 
Win electrolytes in my hand.  He licked them all up.  I scooped up another 
palmful; he ate them all again.  Another palmful; same deal.  After three 
scoops from my hand, he nosed my hand out of the way and started eating them

out of the bucket.  This horse has free access to mineral salt and plain
salt 
and this new Moorman's mineral block, but he was still just munching down on

the Perform N Win.  So, my question is, does he actually need these 
electrolytes if he's eating them?  Or is it possible that he just likes the 
taste?  Can I leave out "free choice" Perform N Win for him at the rides, or

will he make himself sick?
