The skeleton is the foundation of the body, which provides support, protection for the organs, levers for movement and acts as a mineral store for the body. Bones will naturally adapt to the stress created by work or exercise by becoming denser where loading is greatest. If the correct vitamins and minerals are not available bones will become weak or brittle increasing the risk of injury or fracture. In brood mares, if sufficient levels of bone developing vitiamins and minerals are not available stores within her own bones will be used to create the skeleton of the foal. If not replaced this will lead brittle bones in the mare and if severe, can even lead to growth problems in the foal. As heavy grazing, farming and fertilisation can often leave land lacking in these vital elements providing the correct nutrition for bone strength and development is vital for every horse, especially the brood mare, young stock and competition horse.
