Anywho, my mare is kept out on pasture with a pond 24-7. She gets loose salt mixed in with her feed everyday.
I am headed to a show next month & it is for three days & she will have to be kept in a stall. I am really worried about her not drinking the water there since she drinks pond water at home.
How do electrolytes work? I have always used loose salt but would it be better to give her electrolyte paste before the long trailer ride & while she's at the show?
Or should I just increase the amount of salt I give her when she is there just to make sure she drinks plenty of water?
Haha... I'm probably not making any sense... help. How do they work, when to use them, paste or powdered, etc.
