FAQs

Why is Equine Leg Magic™ so magical?

ELM is a granular mineral supplement plus vitamins formulated in specific ratios that can be added to feed twice daily or added to water and given orally as a suspension. All mineral ingredients in ELM are simple compounds that dissociate rapidly upon ingestion. It is this feature that makes ELM 100% bio-available to the tissue cells of muscle, tendons, bones, nerves, etc., and explains the wide range of undesired results that respond to the product. It should be noted that ELM does not replace free choice mineral sources.

How long can I feed ELM to my horse?

Equine Leg Magic™ is likely to be an integral part of your equine’s health. For that reason, we recommend that it become a part of your regular supplement schedule.


What are some feeding tips?  

  • ELM easily “sticks” to sweet feed.
  • ELM will settle to the bottom of a pelleted feed container.
  • ELM will “stick” to a variety of products such as soaked beet pulp, molasses, oils, etc
  • If your equine rejects the flat mineral taste of ELM you may add the above suggestions or applesauce or other more palatable equine safe food.

Can I feed this to my foal or growing equine?

  • ELM is safe for newborn foals after 10 days.
  • ELM is safe for nursing foals after 10 days.
  • ELM scoops should increase proportionately to weight of horse.

Is ELM safe for aging and geriatric horses? Yes!


Can I feed alfalfa while on ELM?

We'd rather you not feed alfalfa if it can be avoided. Alfalfa is a legume high in calcium and therefore would reduce the benefits of ELM that your horse would receive otherwise. At most, we suggest a ratio of no more than 20% of alfalfa to regular daily feed. 


Does this product replace free-choice minerals?

ELM is not a replacement for free-choice mineral sources.

What are the instructions for just starting ELM?

Day 1: Add 1 scoop (1 Tablespoon) of ELM to the feed of your choice twice daily and continue until day 3.

Day 3: Increase to 2 scoops twice daily and continue at this level until day 6.

Day 6: Increase to 3 scoops twice daily and continue at this level until day 10.

Day 10: Increase to 4 scoops twice daily and continue at this level for 10 weeks.

At 8-10 weeks you should see improvements. Many see results sooner.

My horse is great! Should I stop using Equine Leg Magic™?

Please gradually reduce the amount of scoops fed to your horse to determine the proper balance of nutrients your horse needs. Please follow the instructions below for determining the proper amount of ELM to feed your horse.

After your horse has been on ELM and shown major improvements for at least 10 weeks then you can decrease the amount fed per day very slowly - eg- 4 scoops at a feeding can be decreased to 3 scoops at each feeding.

Continue to reduce ELM at a low level to make sure undesired results do not reoccur. When your horse is doing well at the reduced ELM scoops - gradually decrease the amount by one scoop per feeding until you reach 1 scoop per feeding. The amount to feed is based on weight, age and discipline.

If changes become negative, increase the amount of ELM fed to the previous level for a longer time and/or increase it to a higher level per feeding. This will determine your maintenance scoop amount.


What is the common number of scoops to give my horse?

Most horses will eat 4 scoops per feeding (twice per day). Continue at this level for at least 2 months (10 weeks) beyond which you see major improvement. 


What if my feed is pelleted?

If the feed is pelleted you will need to add some other sticky product to keep the ELM from drifting to the bottom of the feeder.


What if my feed is sweet?

If the feed is a sweet feed or one with stickiness ELM will adhere. Make sure you sprinkle the ELM rather than put it all in one place as it is flat-tasting like all minerals.
