Some horses appear to prefer sea salt or Himalayan salt over regular table salt. There is no added nutritional benefit of these more gourmet forms of salt however if these are what are preferred by your horse they can be a good choice. Be sure to use sodium chloride not lite salt as the latter is potassium chloride and will not help maintain sodium levels.

Sodium is the major positively charged ion in the fluid surrounding cells and potassium is the main positively charged ion within cells (salt = sodium -chloride). The difference in the concentrations of potassium and sodium creates a concentration gradient across the cell membrane. When nerves are triggered, channels in the nerve cell membranes open and the sodium ions move into the cell. This changes the internal electronic charge of the cell from negative to positive. Gradually potassium channels open and the process is reversed. Tightly controlling the concentration gradient across cell membranes is vital for nerve cell function and therefore electrolyte levels are vital to nerve conduction and muscle contraction. A horse with inadequate sodium status may therefore have compromised muscular skeletal performance.

Regular table salt or sodium chloride is approximately 61 percent chloride and 39 percent sodium. Feeding 30 grams of salt a day will provide 11.7 grams of sodium enough to meet the maintenance needs of a 500 kg horse.

Rather than rely strictly on age to determine if a horse is a “senior”, it is more important to determine if the horse is “nutritionally senior.” A horse that is “nutritionally senior” can no longer eat its same diet and maintain proper body condition. The combination of: age, physiological status and physical signs of aging will determine if a horse is “nutritionally senior.” Some common physical signs of aging that require nutrition management are loss of weight and decrease in body condition, loss of muscle mass over the top line, sway backed appearance, decrease in coat and hoof quality and dental problems. Some senior horses also develop diseases such as Metabolic Syndrome, Cushing Disease, degenerative joint disease and kidney or liver disfunction.

Given the decreased metabolic function in aging horses, it is important to provide highly digestible and available nutrients. Probiotics from live yeast cultures increase the digestibility of the fibre, phosphorus and calcium and are included in HYGAIN® EQUINE SENIOR® and HYGAIN TRU CARE® specially formulated feeds for the mature horse (6 yo +).

Research has shown that horses drink the most water when the water temperature is between 7 and 20º C. Optimum water consumption will keep the fibre in the horse’s digestive system hydrated, allowing it to be broken down efficiently by intestinal bacteria and to be pliable, and less likely to “ball up” and cause a blockage in the large intestine. The water requirement is higher if the horse is in training, nursing a foal, growing, or pregnant.
