Horses deficient in salt will lick or chew on mangers, fences, dirt, rocks and other objects. They also develop depraved appetites, rough hair coat and reduced growth. Mares experience reduced milk production, according to reports from the Mississippi Station. Horses with severe salt deficiency, brought about by a low salt intake and considerable sweating, become fatigued and exhausted. Horses that sweat profusely can lose as much as 82.5 grams of sodium per day. Consequently, level of activity and degree of heat stress has a greater affect on salt requirement in horses than any other farm animal species.
The need for salt varies considerably, depending on a horse’s level of work, riding or heat stress. Because sweat contains about 0.7% salt, the more a horse exercises the more salt is lost via sweat and the more it is needed in the diet.
