Why feed Magnesium to Horses?
Magnesium plays an important part in nerve and muscle function. Horses who are deficient in magnesium may show signs of nervousness, excitability, spookiness and have tight sore backs which are not related to saddle fit. They may also develop muscle tremors and skin hypersensitivity. A magnesium deficient horse will build up lactic acid faster during exercise, which can cause rapid fatigue, poor tolerance to work, poor recovery and will be prone to tying up.
