Coconuts in Horses?
It seems that every few months a new nutritional fad appears with wild claims of the benefits to be realized from the latest new thing. A good friend in the cutting horse industry once told me , "if the big futurity was won by a horse eating only carrots, there would be nothing but orange manure in the cutting pens for the next year.
While I believe that following fads is all too common, every once in a while, something that has the potential to change the game does come along. This awakening happened to me four years ago when I received a call from a nutritionist in Australia wanting to know if I was interested in consulting on the development of coconut meal into the US equine feed market. My initial response was what you might expect. Not really interested.
Luckily, he did not give up on me. In the end, it required that he make a trip to the US. This trip resulted in him walking into my office in Northern California with a two foot high stack of clinical work that extended back years in Australia. I had before me, the most tested equine feed ingredient that I had never heard of. Coconut meal.
What?? Coconuts in horses?? Before you quit reading, give me a few more minutes.
