Hi, thanks for all the good advice.
The electrolytes were per the advice of my vet, because last year he would gorge on the round bale so much he wasn't drinking, and then he'd colic.
He is getting about the recommended amount of Strategy Healthy Edge for his size, maybe a little less, hopefully grass will make up for it or I will pick up
a ration balancer.
The hay varies greatly, it seems like we get what they can get at the boarding place.
His group has a round bale during the day (most of the time) and is going to go out on pasture "soon".
So far I am going to switch/replace some of his stuff.
So far I have been told:
Baking Soda and Iodized salt, 2oz per day.
Generic Metamucil works as well as sand clear.
For shine, I am thinking about Horseshine (which is affordable) and/or Black Oil Sunflower Seeds + Paprika to keep him dark.
I know Valerian can be bought in bulk for calming.
I still have plenty of joint supplement to get me through a few more months.
