I heard horses got this from ingesting sand, but I don't know, never seen them shiny like that though.

It's commonly believed that enteroliths are caused by a diet too high in calcium. It's been said that feeding a diet of straight alfalfa can predispose a horse to them, but I am more inclined to believe that a horse has to have some genetic predisposition (like people with gallstones or kidney stones) toward getting them. My family has had horses for generations and we've fed a majority of them straight alfalfa throughout their lives and never had a problem with enteroliths.
