PRO 3 TRACE Equine Supplement Three Essential Trace Minerals Copper, Zinc and Selenium in a highly absorbed form. Often low in UK forage.




Contains three essential trace minerals: Copper, Zinc and Selenium in a high quality, highly absorbed form of Copper, Zinc and Selenium.

These 3 essential trace minerals are often low in UK forage.

Copper is an essential trace mineral often lacking in a horse’s diet and plays an important role in repair, maintenance and development of hooves, joints, bones, tendons ligaments and cartilage. Copper also supports a healthy metabolic function.
Copper is also required for the production of the pigment melanin which gives hair its colour and supports a healthy coat and helps prevent coat, mane and tail bleaching.
Copper is necessary for the mobilisation of stored iron in the horses body. Copper absorption is complex as it interacts with several other trace elements, which can affect copper absorption in the equine diet. Copper is often low in UK forage.

Zinc is an anti oxidant mineral that plays an important role in the health of the immune system. As well as healthy skin and hooves it is involved in energy metabolism and bone and joint health.
Zinc also plays a role in the production of the pigment melanin (in bay and black Horses) which gives hair its colour and supports a healthy coat and helps prevent coat, mane and tail bleaching.
Zinc is often low in UK forage.

Selenium is an important trace mineral that is necessary for the development of a healthy immune system.  Selenium supports healthy muscle performance and recovery in hard working horses.
Selenium also aids in reproductive health and helps support healthy metabolic function.
Selenium is often low in UK forage.

    Sorry to mark so low but I am sure the product is effective but could not get my horse to eat it.

      Hi Allison
      I cannot find any correspondence from you regarding difficulty feeding, so it is difficult to advise why you are having problems with palatability.
      Horses are suspicious of all new smells and flavors so in order to avoid potential disappointment and refusal you need to introduce all new supplements and feeds gradually.
      Unfortunately, we do find that quite often people just introduce the whole amount all at once, particularly with the supplements with a lower feed rate, but this is a concentrated supplement so the same approach would still apply.
      It is also important to feed in a suitable base feed. This is a powdered supplement so it needs to be fed in a wet base feed such as soaked hay cobs, soaked grass nuts, etc, or a suitable soaked base feed of your choice.

    Only been using for a short time but the product looks clean & fresh, very palatable to my fussy horse….too soon to report on effectiveness.

  5. Tracey C.

    My fussy horse doesn’t like it. She would rather have the expensive option Platinum hoof plus!!
