Energy & Coolness Rating System

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.

Unique Formulation – Naturally the best!

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!

Aged Horses – Caring for old friends!

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 & Pony have 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.

Electrolytes – The right balance!

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 info@lauckemills.com.au for information on economical electrolyte replacement.

Balanced Lysine – For strong muscle growth and recovery!

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 – The facts!

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.

Electrolyte Chart

SODIUM CHLORIDE (SALT) REPLACEMENT
Mild Sweating Nil
Moderate Sweating 25 to 75gms of salt per day
Heavy Sweating 75 to 125gms of salt per day
Excessive & prolonged sweating 125 to 225gms of salt per day
SODIUM, CHLORIDE (SALT) & POTASSIUM REPLACEMENT
Mild Sweating Nil
Moderate Sweating 30 to 100gms of salt per day
Heavy Sweating 100 to 175gms of salt per day
Excessive & prolonged sweating 175 to 300gms of salt per day
SALT & POTASSIUM MIX
There are two options that can be used to make this mixture:
Mixture 1. Mix equal parts of "Lite Salt"* and salt.
Mixture 2. Mix 75% salt with 25% potassium chloride.
Both mixtures are similar and will provide the main electrolytes sodium, chloride and potassium in a balanced ratio to each other
* "Lite Salt" (or similar products that contain approximately half salt and half potassium chloride) is a mixture of salt and potassium chloride and can be purchased at most supermarkets or grocery stores.

Electrolytes – The Right Balance!

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 need to buy expensive electrolyte mixes.

The ELECTROLYTE CHART (above) following chart indicates the approximate amount of electrolytes that a 450 kg horse is likely to require in addition to that supplied by Cool Horse & Pony.

Points to note when feeding electrolytes

  • When dosing high levels of electrolytes it is important to ensure that fresh drinking water is available at all times. This will allow the horse to regulate its fluid intake and ensure that dehydration does not occur.
  • Only administer high levels of electrolytes when heavy sweating has occurred.
  • It is recommended that electrolytes be added to the food or administered as a drench.
  • Do not add electrolytes to the drinking water as the horse will not be able to regulate its water / electrolyte balance and problems may occur.
  • If the drinking water has a high mineral content, such as bore water, it is recommended that you discuss the feeding of extra electrolytes with your veterinarian before proceeding.
