It is September and temperatures are rising! Not only is the outdoor temperature increasing, but your horse’s body temperature is too. Did you know there are some simple changes you can make to your horse’s feeding program that will provide benefits for them in this hot weather?
Everything your horse eats creates internal heat when it is digested. Different feed ingredients produce varying amounts of internal heat, which when combined with higher ambient temperatures can create digestive upset and reduced performance. Fat is easily digested, producing less heat, and can be used by the body as a source of energy. Therefore, feeding a diet higher in fat may help prevent overheating during work in the summer months!
HealthyCoat is an all-natural, high fat supplement fortified with Niacin, Biotin, Vitamin B, and Vitamin E. It is made with the highest quality mechanically extracted oil to preserve the natural Omegas. It produces very little heat during digestion, which helps in maintaining a stable body temperature.
