Why We Use Stabilized Rice Bran

Since we introduced Stabilized Rice Bran to the equine nutrition market, we have proven the advantages that can be gained by using this food grade ingredient to replace higher starch feed ingredients in your horses feeding program.  Stabilized Rice Bran is high in natural vegetable fat (18% to 20%), is a good source of fermentable fiber and provides quality protein.

Why We Use Coolstance® Coconut Meal

Not all coconut meal is created equal…..the processing methods and quality of coconut meal can vary considerably. For over 20 years highest quality Coconut meal, like that found exclusively in CoolStance®, has been proving itself as a super premium, low starch source of digestible energy for performance horses in Australia.

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.

Why We Use Flax

Flax is best known as a significant source of Omega 3 fatty acids and can help to optimize the balance of Omega 3 and Omega 6 in a formulation.  Flax is also an excellent source of vegetable fat and quality proteins. This third source of low starch digestible energy rounds out the Renew Gold™ formulation.

How Yeast Works in Horses

We have already discussed the fact that the digestive system of the horse evolved to use roughage (hay or pasture) as its primary source of energy. Digestion of this roughage relies on a healthy population of beneficial bacteria in the hind gut to assist in the breakdown of this most vital component in your horse’s diet.
