    Thanks Ziggy but can you please quote the author of the book?

    Despite my pro-iodine stance I wouldn't go feeding horses "equine sushi" as understand iodine deficiency unusual in Australian horses, except in Tasmania.

    A horse's daily requirements are tiny and toxicity from overloading is more likely.
    For example, too much iodine-rich feed (ie seaweed) causing enlarged joints and contracted tendons in foals.
    There's a good online nutrition guide available which covers this in some detail.

    Seems if you want to add iodine, safer to use a good brand vit & min supplement.

    And sometimes a salt is just a salt.

    Am off to google my lamp...:)

    You are quite right SomeoneElse....ofcourse you can ignore her (Pat Coleby), but I'm surprised by the tone of your post (self-appointed 'expert')???? And I didnt forget to mention her name...I did'nt think that was an issue or compulsory. Be nice please, and happy New Year.:D:))

    To answer your question Trojane, the author of the book that I quoted is Pat Coleby.:D

    Apologies Ziggy, it is just that PC recommendations can bring out extreme bouts of wickedness in many of us. If you ever want to see a horse nutritionist turn purple and look really nasty ask them about adding PC quantities of copper sulfate to your horses feed. *#)

    Or kelp :p These are both "common" topics - try the google search up the top. There was a good article about feeding kelp on the old Equalize Horse Nutrition webpage.

    Would the Himalayan rope swab if eaten before a show? Can you get a therapeutic exemption for that?

    yes yes I will confirm I have seen similar purple furious reactions from the mentions of kelp and sulfur as well....in fact just the name PC alone will produce an instant "evil eye" from an animal nutritionist *#)

    actually i'm sure potassium permanganate would also hahaha!
    my "herbal" sister loves her lamp - cost a few bucks for something you could nick out of a cave in Margaret River!!!
    Not my cup of tea.
    Wormwatch : maybe the hemp ropes could be the start of a new trend to "sweep" out sand!! Hahahaha.:)

    I don't think it would, because the hemp that is grown to make clothing, ropes etc. is different from marijuana (dosen't have the 'effect':)) It probably wouldn't show in a test because the amount of marijuana is alot less in hemp than the marijuana plant, and the horse probably wouldn't eat the whole rope (just nibble it and bite it).

    Although I may be wrong. I'm not an expert in this matter*#):)!!!

    LOL trojane, was hoping some common sense would come to those that need it LOL
    we have just developed a sulphurkelppotassiumpermanganate icypole to help equine nutritions from around the world ,from turning purple after reading a PC book.
    we have also developed a insertcommonsense icypole for those that try to read a PC book.
    and finally for all those that follow PC, we have developed a needabrainthatworks icypole.
