    The second is with selenium.
    They ship very quickly, I get my stuff from them all the time.
    Our area is not supposed to be selenium deficient and RB has 2.5ppm...whatever that means. Do you think that would be enough? I have my Valley Vet Supply catalogue here so I will look the Elevate up. Thanks!

    Rural Heritage Vet Clinic - Importance of Selenium

    1-3mg is ok, but 50mg is toxic? I think the 1.5ppm is less than 1mg?

    Yeah, too much SEL is toxic. Desert, was that link for EquiSe-E? (something like that...lol)
    If so, they also use synthetic vit E, I already looked :(
    That stuff was recommended by a lot of ppl. But you can buy natural E at the health food store. Much cheaper and its still the same vitamin.
    Geesh, I would think a RB would have a much higher dose!! Good to know though, I'll probably be switching to an RB when I get home :)

    I feed 4 mg of selenium yeast along with 1200 mg of Vitamin E. My horses selenium range from 0.19 tp 0.215.

    Hind end lameness can also be attributed to a low selenium. My guy was both low and had PSSM......getting his selenium helped alot with the soreness issue but because he has a moderate case of PSSM he will never be rideable.....he is the best baby sitter every.

    Ok, I think I will be ordering the Elevate with the SE in it.

    Today Snickers seemed irritated a bit. I rode her briefly bareback in a halter at the walk, just for exercise. She seemed fine then. But, then I gave her a bath and I think I got water in her ears. She did do a bit of bucking when I walked her back to her pasture. When she was loose, she did all kinds of bucks too, the four legs off the ground type and the rear end off the ground kind. She was bit**ier with Belle too. I pet them both for a bit while they were eating and Snickers kept pinning her ears at Belle and walking away from me. I walked after her at one point and she bucked and trotted off. So, unless it is a coincidence, she is not feeling good. I've NEVER had her act like this. So, I'm going to lay off. Lead her around the ranch for exercise, but not too much pressure on her, just take it slow. Maybe her muscles are hurting now. I feel so bad. :(
