RE: [SPAM] [RC] Electrolytes - as a supplement - Rae Callaway

Reason I'm asking is that I have a boarder - a first time horse owner - who
is insisting that I feed her horse electrolytes in his feed.  Along with
several other supplements.  I told her in the beginning that I wouldn't be
adding the electrolytes because I didn't feel it was good for the horse, but
now she's started prepackaging the supplements and I don't know what all is
in there anymore, except for the neon pink tack store electrolytes.  If I'm
going to take a stand on this, I'd like some facts to back it up.

Can someone explain to me why giving electrolytes as a daily supplement is
good idea?

As someone who doesn't think it is a good idea to supplement healthy
horses daily with electrolytes, no, I can't explain why it is a good
idea...  :-)   It's good to have some sort of a salt supplement
available to them free choice, but IMO it is healthier to leave it up
to them to use it, instead of putting it in their feed.
