    Anyone found a nifty calcium supp they like?

    One that gives off more than the average 5-700 mg per serving. In retrospect for my horse that's just not enough. I seem to have a difficult time finding one. Are there bulk websites I'm missing? I feel like all I do is search. I'm going to supersupp today to chat with them- but I'd have to use a large dose of whatever they have to get it to horse level.

    Thanks in advance!

    Why not just feed alfalfa? Hay, pellets, or cubes are fine. On average it's ~1.5% calcium, so each pound gives you 7g of calcium.

    Nope, because IME horses generally get too much calcium & not enough magnesium. I no longer supp Ca or feed anything that's high in it, like alfalfa. Of course, depends on the horse's diet etc, but well worth looking into IMO.

    Why do you think you need one? Most horses get plenty from their feed or just alfalfa.
    I live in a place where there isn't a lot of calcium in the soil so I just feed a little bit of alfalfa pellets with their meal. Though to be honest I'm feeding it to add a little interest to what would be a rather bland low carb diet not for the added calcium. My horses are long past growing and you need to be cautious feeding too much calcium to growing horses anyway.

    Beet pulp also has a lot of calcium.

    Yeah, Nina's a bit tired this week. All nighters and staring at computer screens are starting to get to me. After I got a decent night's sleep I realized what a stupid question it was, my apologies.

    Gotta love college.
