    who feeds their horses yellow sulphur?
    what do you feed it for?
    and how much do you feed?

    I feed one tablespoon per day to an average sized horse.

    I feed it due to the deficiencies in the land we graze and find it aides parasite control ie-worms, bots, lice etc.

    I feed it in conjunction with other minerals, and I feel that minerals are a bit like the ingredients needed for baking a cake, you either make the cake from scratch by scorcing all the ingredients needed, or buy the cake mix packets at the supermarket, that have most of what you need all in the one box.

    Hope this helps.';'

    Woah a tablespoon is heaps!! we occasionally feed a pinch to help with colds but it can be dangerous to the kidneys/liver if overfed.

    A stockfeeder suggested I feed this as one of my horses gets bitten lots by flies, has anyone had any luck with that? Thanks

    The yellow sulphur does nothing as it is an inorganic form of sulphur and the horse cannot utilise it!:}

    MSM is the best source of sulphur as it is the organic form! :)*:))
