Making syringe electrolytes?
I have always just added electrolyte powder to my horse's grain. However, she is a picky eater when stressed, and we are training/competing alone more this year (she is herd sour and stressed when alone), so I am finding that she isn't eating her mash with elytes added now. She eats fine without any elytes added. So I'm thinking I'll have to start syringing electrolytes now.
What do you mix your powder electrolytes with?
What size syringe? 60cc?
How frequently and when do you dose?
Do you 'chase' with something? I was thinking about Pro CMC or Nutrient Buffer...?
I am still a newbie, doing LDs currently, but thinking about doing a 50 later this year if all goes well... I realize many might not need electrolytes for LDs, but my horse sweats a lot, so I do definitely want her getting them.
