Would you feed cotton candy to your horse as a treat?
Elevated levels of carbohydrates and fats, which to a horse is like cotton candy, has the same effect as a piece of cake does to us. A low-starch and sugar diet, less than 10% in combination, helps to lessen the risk of starch overload thus less digestive problems such as colic or founder. A low-starch and sugar diet has been recommended for horses with certain health conditions such as EPSM, Equine Metabolic Syndrome, Cushing’s and Laminitis. The Stabul Nuggets, which have less than 10% starch and sugar as tested by Equi Analytical, are a minimum 10% protein with 2.5% fat and are made with high quality fermentable fiber from Soybean Hulls, Beet Pulp and Alfalfa which provides additional calories in a safe form. Probiotics have also been added to support microbial fermentation in the hind-gut. Added fat from vegetable oil increases energy density and helps maintain body condition, skin and hair. Flaxseed provides Omega 3 fatty acids which boosts the immune system and can help regulate thyroid functions, making it an ideal supplement for metabolic horses as well as aging horses. With added Amino Acids we have guaranteed Lysine and Methionine to ensure quality protein for muscle tissue. We have also removed any added Iron, so the only iron in Stabul Nuggets is naturally occurring. This will aid to lessen the risk of Iron Overload. We then balance the vitamins and minerals. NuZu is a trusted name in the Zoological world and is known for the scientific diets that we make for elephants, giraffes, rhinos and others.
We all want to give our companions a treat when we see them, Stabul Nuggets are a safe, healthy and nutritional reward in a flavor that your horse will love. They can be used for training purposes or as an energy source while out on a trail ride. Stabul Crumbs are the little pieces of Nuggets that are left over. They are ideal for concealing medications or additional supplements, by adding water to the Crumbs you have a delicious mash.
