Salt

Item #15005
Form: Granular
Maintenance Dose: 1 SmartPak Well

Since hay and grain are both "low-sodium" foods, horses that won't use a salt block need an additional source of salt just to meet their daily needs. Also, replenishing the salt lost when sweating during warm months or heavy exercise is critical! Plain salt is ideal if your horse is on an otherwise well-balanced diet that supplies his other mineral and electrolyte needs, or if your horse has HYPP and can't be given typical electrolytes because of their potassium content.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best product I have found I have a breeding and competing stallion showing 4th level dressage and getting ready for the USEF Developing Young Horse. I had him on Succeed through SmartPaks for the last 2 years and then another product was suggested to work the same so I decided to try it and took my stallion off the Succeed. Within less than a month my horse had a mild colic and prior to Succeed he had another mild colic. I put him immediately back on the Succeed along with salt to encourage more water intake during the hot summer months. So far so good and no more colic! I highly recommend this product to show horses, breeding horses, any horse in a stressful situation. I know I will continue to feed Succeed to all my show horses.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value, great new product So glad to see Smart Pak offering plain old salt! After reading about salt deficiency in Horse Journal, it's a good peace of mind knowing my horses can get it in their Smart Paks. But tip for those new to feeding salt - start with a small amount, maybe 1/2 recommended amount, and work up to the regular amount. My horses wouldn't eat it at first, but I ordered the full serving instead of slowly working it up.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Alternative to Salt Blocks! My paint gelding would never lick his salt block like all the other horses. Instead, he would bite off the corners and chew them. This was equally bad for his teeth and the block, which would crumble and fall from the holder after only a day or two of this. Adding the loose salt to his feed is the best solution as it saves his teeth and is cheaper than buying block after block of salt (only to have most of it wasted). He gobbles it right up!
