So the more I read about this whole magnesium deficiency the more I wonder if Lizzy is getting enough. In fall just before winter came she would never spook. Maybe occasionally but it was very rare. In January I switched her from Red Cell to Vita Plus and about February going into March she has turned into this very spooky horse. Literally jumping at everything.
The Red Cell has 20mg of magnesium per serving and she was getting two ounces per day which I am guessing to be two servings since some only get one ounce.
The Vita Plus has 12.5mg per serving and she gets one serving in morning and one in night.
So that's 40mg per day compared to now 25mg per day. That seems like a huge difference and would that make the difference in her spookiness?? It has gotten so bad that she can't ride a few feet without spooking at something.
I'm attaching the links for both so you can see the comparision of everything else in it. I do not want to put her back on Red Cell.
