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 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.
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.
