“Morning, I have a 32 year old mare who is not holding weight. She is presently on total equine, will eat some chopped hay, gets algae, noni and just began omega horseshine. She is out on 24/7 pasture as well. I came across your product which makes sense. However, we are here in middle Tennessee and I was wondering if your product would work here as well considering you have extra selenium in it. Thanks so much.”
Answer from Ph.D. Equine Nutritionist, Dr. Kelsey Johnson Nonella:
It sounds like you take really good care of your mare. As our horses age, it gets harder and harder to keep weight on them.
I think that Super Weight Gain would be a great product for you to add to your mare’s diet. Excess selenium shouldn’t be a concern in your area. Tennessee has variable selenium levels, with some areas that are selenium deficient. So your mare may actually benefit from the added selenium.
The prebiotics and probiotics, vitamins and minerals, protein, and fat in Super Weight Gain should help your mare to keep weight on. Good luck and thank you for your question.
