I read that paprika is a good source of vitamin A, and is very horse friendly to feed (granted you do not show.) :-D

Good luck.

That was my thought too. Or that the blanket is a little too big so she can't lift her tail out of the way.

Horses need about 100,000 IU of Vitamin A a day throughout the winter and spring months (when you see almost all cases of rain rot and lice). The quickest way to correct the deficiency is to use the injectable form made for cattle only you give it ORALLY by squirting 5cc in the horse's mouth.

The best horse supplement to correct the problem is Mare Plus made by Farnam. It has high levels of Vitamin A without the Vitamins and minerals that get a horse 'high' and silly.
