[RC] Horse Quencher/electrolytes - Sheila_Larsen

Ok I coulda looked this up but does HQ provide electrolytes?  Way back when
in my professional groom/rider days after a hard ride we used to offer the
horses a bucket of water with some electrolytes in it as well as fresh
water.  Of course there weren't all the fancy flavors which can appeal to
many horses but most seemed to like the electrolyte flavor and would drink
it quite nicely.  Just something to try, kinda like gatorade or similar for
people and you aren't putting such a concentration in their stomach as you
do when you syringe.  I am not suggesting that you don't syringe but
thinking along the lines of providing HQ.

Horses lend us the wings we lack.  Author Unknown
