What are the benefits of ALOE VERA JUICE if you put it in your horses grain as a supplement?
I have a 10 year old thoroughbred gelding that is very high strung. And I heard that Aloe Vera Juice is a good thing to put in horses grain that are like that. (He is an ex-race horse and is prone to ulcers.)

So what are the benefits of putting Aloe Vera Juice in your horses grain as a supplement?

How much Aloe Vera Juice should I put in his grain every morning?

Thank you for answering!!!! =]

Although I haven’t ever tried it with my horses, I have heard that Aloe Vera mixes can increase stamina and energy. But I have also heard that it can help joints (especially since it has anti inflammitory properties), kill some kinds of viruses, bacteria, and fungi, increase blood flow, and decrease thh risk of ulcers due to stress.

Most of the Aloe Vera products I have seen for equines are in a mixed form, never just out of the plant, probably for a few reasons:
1) You might need a larger quantity on the long term than what is easily available in a single plant.
2) The properties of aloe vera alone could be enhanced with other minerals and supplements; thus it is convienently placed in a mixed form.
3) It smells horrible and your horse might not eat it without it being ‘disguised’. If I were a horse, I wouldn’t eat it.

Just three ideas as to why when people add aloe vera to their horses diet it is not in its raw form. As always, I would consult a knowledgeable veterinarian! Hope this helps!
