[RC] [RC] selenium in VA - Rides 2 Far


Se deficiency in a horse will cause muscle atrophy.  


On the other hand, overdosing Se will cause horizontal separations in the
hoof wall. I've seen quite a few endurance horses with those. Se is toxic
so don't just scoop it to them at random.  I read about Nathan Bedford
Forest's cavalry literally "riding their horses out of their hooves" and
the author felt that considering where he was it had to do with se
overdose.

Angie, stoking the woodstove, out of school *again* and it's 0 degrees 4"
of ice on the trough, and had no electricity for several hrs. this morn!
:-P
