Incorporating Renew Gold™ Into Your Feeding Program
To get the most out of Renew Gold, and the rest of your horses’ diet, you need to consider the entire feeding program, and what you are trying to accomplish.
Most horse owners do not have the luxury of permanent year-round pasture with a mixed roughage source for their horses to graze at their own pace. Instead, most horses live a somewhat confined life with food available in large quantities once or twice per day. An average performance horse diet commonly starts with several flakes of hay of some sort in the morning and evening. Most horse owners feel that additional energy, beyond that provided by the hay will be needed. Therefore, some sort of grain based concentrate gets added to each feeding. Most feed manufacturers recommend between four and ten pounds of their grain concentrate. If the concentrate is palatable most horses will eat that first. This creates a most unnatural situation that greatly lowers efficiency of the entire digestive system. In many cases horse owners feel that they now need additional support for horses that for some reason are not thriving. This is where the supplements start. Hoof conditioners, pro-biotics, ulcer treatments, coat conditioners, herbs, magic powders and enough bags, tubs and bottles in the tack room to fill every available corner and shelf. If one does not seem to work try, another one.
The Renew Gold point of view
Let’s take a look at this from the Renew Gold point of view. The diet described above is inefficient because it simply does not fit in the horse’s digestive system in the way that horses evolved to convert their food into usable energy. Take a step back, take a deep breath, and start over.
