[RC] oral glucosamine and vit C - Michelle Fink

Hi -

I've decided to feed my horse a glucosamine in her mash, and want to get her
started before our first ride of the season.  There's a brand labeled "99%
Glucosamine" which is glucosamine sulfate with no extra stuff in it.  I
thought about starting with that plus Esther-C in my horses' mash.  Does the
extra stuff in the other glucosamine mega-supplements play a key role in
glucosamine uptake?  Is there a recommended amount of vit. C needed to
assist uptake or does the horse produce enough C that supplementation is not
necessary?

Happy trails -
Michelle
