[RC] Magnesium Deficiency - Spring Pasture - Complications - Lynne Tomovick

Susan G ?? Anyone else??

After a hard ride last weekend, I had a blood panel done on my horse. Everything was normal, except he was low in magnesium. The vet said this time of year spring pastures can be low in magnesium. Conclusion, hard working horse on low mg pasture = magnesium deficiency.
(Unfortunately, I do not know what his pre-ride mg status was, so, we are assuming pasture is source of problem.)

Anyone suggest a magnesium supplement? How much & fow how long?

When might I expect my pasture to provide sufficient mg level? I'm in the Black Hills of South Dakota.

Any complications/symptoms for which I should be aware? This horse had a puzzling nosebleed a few weeks prior. That is what prompted me to do the blood work.
