Horses - Calcium carbonate is widely used medicinally as an inexpensive dietary calcium supplement or antacid. Calcium is an important macro mineral, essential for bone growth, maintenance and development, particularly in young horses. Deficiency in calcium has also been associated with tying-up in performance horses, as well as DOD (Developmental Orthopaedic Disease), seen in some young, fast-growing horses.
Calcium and phosphorus work together and horses require around twice as much calcium in the diet as phosphorus (a 2:1 calcium to phosphorus ratio). Cereals typically contain four times as much phosphorus to calcium (a 1:4 calcium to phosphorus ratio), which is not ideal for calcium deposition in the body.
Many horse owners report a decrease in cribbing when feeding Limestone Flour.
