Regional Supplements

The best way to ensure your horse receives the minerals and vitamins he needs is to have your hay analyzed and formulate a supplement based on the results.
  
Sometimes it's just impossible to have every load of hay tested.  Estimates of "regional" deficiencies and excesses can be made using geochemical maps (you're probably familiar with geochemical maps for selenium), information obtained from county extension agents or based on the results of multiple hay analyses from the same area.

The regional supplements below for the Southwest and West Coast are based on the typical deficiencies (copper, zinc) and excesses (iron, manganese at times) found in these areas.
