Hartenburg Horse Tea

This is a recipe for keeping your horse hydrated when traveling.

  • 3 TB of electrolyte or table salt
  • 3 TB of sugar
  • 7 or 8 alfalfa cubes or about a cup of alfalfa pellets
  • about 1 1/2 cups of senior feed
  • Put in water and let soak for about 5 minutes, stir and you have a sort of horse shake.  Mix into little baggies.  Take it with you and just dump it in their water.  You could add beer or apple juice.  Guiness Stout will make them sweat.
