    I added this product to my horse’s forageplus-minerals a few months ago and his skin is healthier than it has ever been. I’m really grateful for all the knowledge that is shared on this website and for the excellent quality feed that Forageplus provides. I tell all my horsey friends where I buy my minerals 🙂
