Severe deficiencies in horses are uncommon in Australia due to improvements in identification and treatment. However, marginal deficiencies are much more difficult to identify, and significant performance losses may occur without any obvious symptoms being present. Symptoms such as mild or intermittent lameness may be signs of a nutrient imbalance, rather than an outright deficiency.
Horses at greatest risk of nutrient deficiencies include high-level performance horses, pregnant and lactating mares, growing horses up to 2 years of age, and horses that are stalled 24/7 on an all-hay diet with no pasture access.
Fresh grass contains high levels of Vitamin E, but these drop once the grass is cut for hay and stored.
Horses on pasture get their vitamin A from forage but, similar to vitamin E, levels begin to decrease once the grass is cut for hay.
The equine digestive tract contains microbes which are responsible for digestion of food and production of B group vitamins. If the hindgut is too acidic, due to too much grain, colic or fevers, production of B group vitamins may be compromised, leading to poor skin health or muscle development and poor immune or nervous system function.
TNN Mighty Min for Horses has been developed to optimise the nutritional status of horses where their dietary intake is low.
