Copper

Copper is best known for its ability to give the horse’s skin and coat a healthy shine, but there is much more to the copper mineral then just a shiny coat. Copper is a trace element that the horse makes use of in a variety of bodily functions. Many horses suffer with copper deficiency, making the horse’s coat and skin appear dull. The effects of copper deficiency in equines goes far beyond cosmetic issues, such as a loss of coat colour. Copper deficiency makes horses become susceptible to skin conditions such as rainscald and mud fever, which can become major challenges if the wounds should become infected.

Copper for horses, is an important mineral contributing to the creation and maintenance of connective tissues; it is essential for all horses of any age, but it is most important for young horses. Connective tissues play a vital part in the production of bone collagen, this makes copper most important for foals, as it will help them to create strong healthy bones as they grow.
