Re: [RC] Electrolytes - Beth Walker

Here is an update:

LyteNow 2

DynaSpark                       3
        Add DynaPro     1

Endura-Lytes 1

Roll-your-own           1
        Electrolytes w/ Yogurt  

Running Bear 1

Enduramax Powder 2 (+15 horses)

POFAW                           1
   (Plain old food and water, and don't over-ride your horse)

I appreciate all the feedback folks, and the advice that came with it. Lots of good stuff in there. I think I might check out the DynaSpark, since horses seem to like the taste, and keep some LyteNow on hand as a "just in case of emergency" item if I need something fast-acting.

The electrolytes I currently have (nobody mentioned them - AppleLyte crystals) I use pretty sparingly, and only on really hot days or before a race. I knew that you could over-dose on elytes, so I generally add it to his beet pulp the night before. If I get heavy- handed, my horse won't eat it, so that limits me to giving him about a quarter of what the directions call for. I mostly use them to try and get him to drink really well before the ride.
