Apparently the fields locally are terribly low in iron? Meaning anaemia is not uncommon. Grass is VERY poor, the fields are 99% mud at the moment.
My boy gets just hay, TONS twice a day. Has access to a salt lick and a paddock likit.
So I was wondering if anyone knows of a supplement I can give to my pony which will just make sure he gets enough without risking giving him too much. I saw this, but not sure if it's suitable or not. If anyone has any experience with a situation like this I'd appreciate any advice.
