So the C is for the PSSM part or the IR part? I feed extra vit E to arrive at 2000IU daily to my IR horse, along with extra salt and 10 g magnesium. Seemed to help. Please don't ask me who said feed extra E....Kellon? Can't remember lol....

I'm feeding the C for the IRS part - purely on my own thinking - I've not seen any research on it but it seemed to make some sort of sense to my logic that if they have impaired uptake of glucose that will also effect ability to produce Vit C

If at first you don't succeed, try, try again

Hmmm....my smart book says " no demonstrated dietary requirement of this vitamin for horses". It does mention older horses or those with infertility problems could benefit. And the only form of C that can be utilized without side effects is ascorbyl palmitate. That explains why some senior feeds contain C.....

I always went by the 'no need' as they metabolize it from glucose and that's something hats readily available in any healthy horses diet - it was when I got to thinking that a horse with IRS can't make glucose so well so might get a deficiency of Vit C

Yeah, I see your reasoning. On my end here, everything is super high in iron, which is bad for IR horses, and C helps with absorbing Fe in the hindgut....so I guess I better don't supplement it lol

I feed 2000iU of Vit E a day too. The L-carnitine is an amino acid and supposed to help with the glucose part.

I took the girls on a walk up the mesa across the street from the ranch. I actually suddenly remembered to try and take a video of Snickers legs going downhill on the way back. Hopefully you can see....this was quite difficult. She knuckles over a lot and sometimes gets the peg leg thing with that right hind.
