COOL HORSE & PONY, THE BEST VALUE FOR COOL & CALM NUTRITION!
Cool Horse & Pony is a cool, nutritious and palatable horse food that can be fed to horses performing active strenuous work, pregnant and lactating mares, young growing horses and as a maintenance food for spelling and aged horses.
The innovative "ENERGY & COOLNESS" rating system is designed to make it easier to understand the differences in the energy and coolness of the various foods in the Equus Range. Energy and coolness are both rated on a scale of one to six. A rating of six for energy indicates the energy level of that food is very high and a rating of six for coolness indicates that particular food is very cool.
Cool Horse & Pony has been scientifically formulated to ensure safe and highly efficient starch digestion in the small intestine.
Starch digestibility in the small intestine is very important to prevent digestive problems such as caecal acidosis which can lead to poor fibre digestion, diarrhoea, colic and laminitis.
Cool Horse & Pony has been manufactured to ensure the very best in nutritional digestibility, coolness and safety without the necessity to excessively heat process the food. While high temperature processing such as extrusion has some advantages there are also disadvantages such as high cost and detrimental heat damage to sensitive nutrients such as lysine, enzymes and vitamins.
Cool Horse & Pony is a highly nutritious diet that is not over processed giving you the best performance and value for money.
The way nature intended!
Cool Horse & Pony is the ideal food for aged horses and those horses that have difficulty in adequately chewing their feed. The ingredients in Cool Horse & Ponyhave been specially processed to ensure that they do not require chewing for the horse to receive its full nutritional benefit. To further enhance nutrition intake particular attention has been made to ensure that Cool Horse & Pony is very palatable.
Cool Horse & Pony contains essential electrolytes to aid in the prevention of deficiencies, particularly potassium, sodium and chloride. Under normal conditions no extra electrolyte supplementation will be necessary. Where moderate to heavy sweating occurs it may be necessary to supplement extra sodium chloride (salt) and to a lesser extent potassium. This can be done cheaply and effectively without the necessity to buy expensive electrolyte mixes. Please contact our technical personnel or email firstname.lastname@example.org for information on economical electrolyte replacement.
Protein is made up of components called amino acids, of which some must be provided via the diet and others are synthesised by the animal. Amino acids needed to be supplied via the diet are called essential amino acids, of these lysine is normally the one most likely to be in short supply.
Cool Horse & Pony is balanced for essential amino acids, particularly Lysine, and as can be seen in the "Lysine" chart (below) contains a substantially higher level of lysine than typical horse feeds. The high lysine and balanced protein of Cool Horse & Pony ensures efficient protein utilisation, improved lactation in mares, strong growth in young horses, enhanced muscle tone and aids in muscle recovery after strenuous exercise.
Extrusion and micronising are expensive and unnecessary processes that are generally not required where diets are well balanced and specifically formulated for high starch digestibility in the small intestine. Excessive heat processing of horse foods is only necessary to cover inadequacies in diets not safe in their natural state.
Contrary to claims made by some horse food manufacturers extrusion is not new age technology. Extrusion has been used to process animal feeds in Australia for over 40 years.
