In the winter months salt can help increase water consumption encouraging horses to drink, while in the summer months salt can help replace what is lost via perspiration. During the summer months the amount of salt required will increase with the heat, humidity and level of exercise. Symptoms associated with inadequate sodium and chloride intake may include; decreased feed intake - weight loss - muscle weakness - decreased milk production - constipation - decreased skin turgor (skin stays tented when pinched) - licking objects - uncoordinated muscle contractions The best way to be sure your horse gets enough sodium is to feed loose salt mixed with a hard feed dampened down. Its also handy to keep a salt block available for added supplementation should your horse want more. If you are unsure just how much salt your horse requires for their environment and level of activity, consult a qualified nutritionist or speak to your vet.
