Howdy,

Warning these photos may be too graphic as they show what happens to the feet of the human who has severe diabetes.

Here is an article explaining why diabetes in the human can cause serious feet problems.  We must never forget that over feeding or too much sugar in the equine (horse, donkey and mule) creates the same problem.   The only difference is they have hooves not feet. 

If you cannot keep your obese equine off pasture try a grazing muzzle I personally know people who have successfully used this tool to save their horses life. Keeping our equine on a healthy diet, low sugar hay, micro managing their weight to stop them from becoming obese is essential to optimum health and in many cases it is the difference between life and death of the equine.

Exercise, low sugar…

Salt For Donkeys, Horses and Mules – Loose is better


 Most donkey, horse and mule owners may not think about salt.  Did you know that salt blocks were actually designed for cattle?  Cows have rough tongues that can easily lick the block.  A block of salt is better than nothing at all. The best is loose (granular) salt.

Donkeys, mules and horses have smoother tongues than a cow and may not actually get their needed amount of salt from a block.  They may end up biting the block in an attempt to get more, which can lead to teeth and jaw or tooth problems.  The equine suffering from salt- deficient may lick or chew on objects or may actually lick or eat dirt.

No worries about equine over consuming lose salt. Simply place in a separate container in the shelter or give a little at night. Your choice.
