Selenium deficiency can cause tying up of muscles, and reduce performance and fertility. Severe deficiency can cause death (white muscle disease). In most cases selenium deficiency is sub-clinical. In this case selenium deficiencies show either no or only subtle signs (such as slightly stiff muscles). In severe deficiency the horse becomes symptomatic usually with muscle dysfunction like tying up. When the symptoms become visible it is called a clinical deficiency.
