Here are some signs to look for in your horse that could mean they have a copper deficiency:
- Fading coat colour
- Frizzy ends
- Parasite issues
- Curled hair that looks like a fish hook
If there is an excess of iron in your soil or water it will create a copper deficiency. If the horse is experiencing a copper deficiency, they are probably deficient in other nutrients as well and you may need to speak to your vets regarding other supplements.
