Should I feed Redmond Rock Crushed and Daily Red together?

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

With the introduction of our new fortified mineral mix Daily Red, we’ve had customers ask what the difference is between Redmond Rock Crushed and Daily Red—and if they can or should be fed together. While Daily Red and Crushed are foundationally similar—both are natural, loose sea salt mineral supplements and provide excellent health benefits for your horse—they’re targeted to meet different needs and should not be fed together. Here’s why. The skinny on salt. Horses crave salt—something you probably already know! Salt is critical to keeping your horse hydrated, and plays a vital role in nerve and muscle function. Plus, horses like the taste of salt, so they’ll naturally seek it out—a very good thing, especially if you’re using a mineral salt like Crushed or Daily Red to deliver added nutritional benefits to your horse’s diet. Horses’ hankering for salt, however, is also why it’s important not to feed these two products together—and why it is important to only make available the supplement that best meets your horse’s needs. Why? If your horse has two different salt sources to munch on, he may not eat the one you would prefer and that will benefit him the most. So which Redmond salt supplement is best for my horse? That depends! Both Crushed and Daily Red are excellent, but for different reasons. Crushed provides life-sustaining electrolytes and 63 natural trace minerals. It’s ideal for equine athletes and hard-working horses that struggle with dehydration and need electrolyte and mineral replacement. Daily Red has the same foundational blend of electrolytes and trace minerals as Crushed, but is also fortified with zinc, manganese, copper, iodine, selenium and cobalt, plus vitamins A, D, and E. This fortified mix supports vision, joints, nerve and muscle function, and encourages a robust immune system and healthy coat. Daily Red is targeted specifically toward horses that need a nutritional leg up and is well-suited for nutritionally-depleted horses, stall-bound horses, equine athletes, pregnant mares and growing foals.

That’s the scoop on these two products! We hope this helps you feel more informed about which Redmond sea salt supplement is best for your horse. Whichever you choose, Crushed or Daily Red, we’re confident you’ll see the benefits each has to offer your horse.


What is Daily Red?

By | Uncategorized | No Comments
For thousands of years, horses have fed on wild grasses and natural pastureland. They were made to run the prairies, with the sun on their backs and fresh green, nutrient-rich grasses going in their bellies. Unfortunately, nowadays it’s not always possible to provide these ideal circumstances for our equine friends!


Many of our horses spend a lot of time in trailers, stalls and paddocks (probably more than we, or they, would like), and when we pluck our horses from their natural habitat and put them in a stall, we limit their access to natural and diverse forage. This can lead to mineral deficiencies, a dowdy appearance, and the risk of greater health problems. Hard-working horses and athletes also lose copious amounts of nutrients through sweat and are at risk for deficiency.


Redmond’s Daily Red fortified mineral mix can bring your horse back into balance and ensure he’s looking, feeling and performing his best.


What is Daily Red?


Daily Red is a loose mineral sea salt that provides a full complement of all major trace minerals, plus key vitamins, to improve and maintain the health, appearance and vitality of your horse.
• Daily Red contains a blend of 63 naturally-occurring trace minerals and electrolytes to support hydration and a healthy coat and hooves.
• A boosted mineral formula, including zinc, manganese, copper, iodine, selenium and cobalt, to enhance antioxidant function, improve digestion, energy, and support muscle, tissue and joint health.
• Added vitamins A, D and E to support vision and encourage a robust immune system, reproduction, strong bones and joints, and healthy nerve and muscle function.
What horses will benefit from Daily Red?
Daily Red is particularly well-suited for horses needing a nutritional leg up, such as:
• Stall-bound horses with minimal sun exposure and turnout time, and which are limited to feeds brought to them.
• Hard-working horses and equine athletes which sweat a lot and are susceptible to mineral loss and joint damage.
• Neglected or nutritionally depleted horses.
• Pregnant mares.
• Growing foals.
