What are the benefits to feeding Renew Gold?

Renew Gold costs less per month compared to conventional grain based feed, uses no vague ingredients, and improves overall efficiency of the horse by allowing the system to function naturally without overwhelming it with ingredients that it cannot properly digest.

Why is Renew Gold better than just feeding Rice Bran?

As the people who created the use of Stabilized Rice Bran for horses in the 1980s, we remain strong advocates for its use. It is a great grain replacement, and fat supplement.
Renew Gold takes SRB a step farther by increasing digestive efficiency through the entire system. This eliminates the use of other feeds and supplements.

Are you guys still doing the UPC Promotion?

Yes! The UPC promo is still going on. If you send in 5 UPCs from either a Renew Gold or Renew Gold Senior bag, you will be sent a free bag of our horse treats. Send your UPCs into

Is there any need for additional supplements while feeding Renew Gold?

90% of our customers don't feed additional feed with Renew Gold as long as their hay quality is good! 

What is the difference between Renew Gold and non-pelleted Maci Glo Rice Bran?

While we use food grade stabilized rice bran in the Renew Gold formula, the additional ingredients contribute to make Renew Gold more effective in making the whole digestive system more efficient. Coconut meal is highly anti inflammatory and fills some amino acid gaps that Stabilized rice bran has. Flax meal adjusts Omega 3 to Omega 6 ratios. Our prebiotic increases digestion of the hay that you feed. Overall it is simply a more efficient formula. 

What is Renew Gold's NSC? (non-structural carbohydrates)

Total NSC (non-structural carbohydrates) for Renew Gold is 17%. Composed of 10% starch and 6.8% sugars. Total contribution to the diet from a one pound daily feeding is 77 grams.

Any experience feeding this to horses prone to or recovering ulcers?

A Renew Gold diet is great for ulcer prone horses. Eliminating excess starch and sugars from the diet by replacing grain based feeds with Renew Gold takes one of the most common causes of ulcers out of the horse. Additionally, keeping some hay available at all times. Have some alfalfa available, and see that teeth are up to date, and managing ulcer horses becomes much easier. 

What stage of life should I start feeding Renew Gold? 

We usually feel that 6 months is a good place to start at 1/3 to 1/2 pound per day. Many horse owners will feed RG to a brood mare with a foal at its side. If the foal eats some of it, that is perfectly safe.

Why is the feed rate for Renew Gold so low?

While Renew Gold is very energy dense, part of the value is that it is formulated to allow your horse to capture more calories from the roughage portion of the diet by making the horses hind gut to work without disruption. With conventional grain based concentrates, the hind gut does not function effectively, allowing much of that nutrition to end up on the ground behind the horse. With Renew Gold, the digestive system works properly allowing the nutrition of the hay to be actually used. The result is that you don’t need to add a lot on concentrate to try to make up for what your horse could not digest while that nutrition was in there. Result is that Renew Gold makes big changes with small feed rates.
