LEARN ABOUT WHY
REDMOND GARLIC IS

"During the summer, my horse Chicken always needed a fly sheet and mask to protect against irritation from flies and mosquitoes. Without this protection, he'd rub his mane out. Since feeding Crushed with garlic, I've seen a noticeable decrease in flies. Chicken isn't mane rubbing now, is drinking more, and no longer needs outer protection to ward off pests."

HORSES & GARLIC FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
The short answer is yes. Garlic induced anemia can happen quickly if your horse is snacking on wild garlic and onions growing in pastures, or slowly, as a result of over-supplementing. For a more detailed explanation, learn more here: https://blog.redmondequine.com/how-much-garlic-should-i-feed-my-horse
Heinz body anemia often comes up when garlic and horses are considered. Feeding more than 0.4 grams per kilogram body weight of freeze-dried garlic has led to Heinz body anemia in horses. This is the equivalent of feeding a 500-kilogram (1,100-pound) horse 200 or more grams per day, which is just under half a pound. That's a lot of garlic! While this amount could easily be consumed by horses eating wild garlic growing in pastures it is unlikely you would give this amount on purpose.
The garlic oil used in Redmond Rock Crushed with Garlic is 12x stronger than garlic alone. It is 25% more concentrated than garlium (a garlic additive manufactured in Italy). Redmond garlic is not a flavor, but rather a garlic oil that acts as functional food additive meant to improve animal health and performance. If you were to use dried garlic on your feed, you would be looking at 8-9x the cost to reach the same potency, and dosage accuracy would be incredibly hard to achieve.
We do not recommend that you use garlic for your horse year-round. Follow appropriate dosage instructions based on your horse’s size and use only during fly season (max 6 months consecutively).
We always recommend using Redmond Rock Crushed with Garlic in combination with Daily Gold. However, Redmond Rock Crushed with Garlic and Daily Red are targeted to meet different needs and should not be fed together.

There is no difference in product properties. Just form.
Horses, it is said, do better on loose mineral rather than a block or rock because their tongue is more sensitive than cattle. Licking a lot can make their tongue raw. However, we have never had a horse struggle with Redmond Rock or Redmond Rock on a Rope. Currently, we do not offer a garlic block product for horses.
