Deficiency in calcium has also been associated with tying-up in performance horses, as well as DOD (Developmental Orthopaedic Disease), seen in some young, fast-growing horses. Calcium and phosphorus work together and horses require around twice as much calcium in the diet as phosphorus (a 2:1 calcium to phosphorus ratio). Cereals typically contain four times as much phosphorus to calcium (a 1:4 calcium to phosphorus ratio), which is not ideal for calcium deposition in the body. Many horse owners report a decrease in cribbing when feeding Limestone Flour. Fed at 10g per day What is Calcium Carbonate? Calcium Carbonate is found in rocks and sediments all over the world.
