Sand Clear

This question has suggested answer(s)

Hi Rick - My wife and I really enjoy your show on RFD TV.  My question is:  How often should a horse be given Sand Clear?  Some people never give it to their horses, but I think it's necessary.  We just don't know how often to do that.  Thanks, Bob

  • Hi Bob,

    Thanks for the kind words. We feed psyllium (Sand Clear is one brand) the first seven days of each month. I think of it as a little insurance policy and so far it seems to be working as we've not had any incidences of colic.  We do live in a sandy area and the horses often eat off the ground. If our situation were different I might make a different decision.  Overall, I keep things as simple as possible with my horses. I hope that helps.
