how about a sea weed based sup. we can use the red ones even with sheep as we have a very poor copper level.

Seaweed is great for coats and colour, my blackie is very shiny when he eats it
Quite good for Menopause too....

When our grey Arab stallion starts to look a bit pink in the face we know he needs his red rocky copper lick,
You can also get a 10 kilo bag of horse minerals from some agri supply places to add to hard feed.
With the  block licks If you drop them in a plastic tub fixed to a top rail, and drill a hole in the bottom of it to let rain out then the sheep can't reach it when it breaks up.
