MacroMinerals - Phosphorus
Did you know that Phosphorus is absolutely essential for your horse or pony to produce energy?
Regardless of how much energy is in your feed, if there is not enough phosphorus, then your horse is not going to produce enough energy.
Phosphorus is also a very important buffer, protecting the stomach against the acids, designed to digest feed.
However, a continuous oversupply has serious implications on the uptake of other minerals, particularly important is the interaction with Calcium.
Consequently, when considering the nutrition of your horse or pony, more of one particular mineral may not necessarily better. The overall nutritional balance is vital to maximise the health and wellbeing of your horse or pony.
