HORSE FEED KILLS WHEN LEAST EXPECTED!

What if your guiltless and hungry horse or pony breaks into the feed room for a binge. Maybe he turns over a few horse covers, rips open a feed bag or two or simply lifts the lid off that feed bin, whichever way he does it, that mess should not be all you worry about even if pony seems nicely content and FULL! Grain overload is the term we use for over-consumption of feed. This could be an accidental occurrence and one requiring the forgiving of a child who permitted their cute pony free access ...

MANAGING WEANLINGS IN WINTER with Kohnkes Own® CELL GROW®

Managing Weanlings in winter Cold or chilly conditions with temperatures falling below 8oC overnight, start to sap increasing amounts of energy away as heat is radiated from the body surface area. Heat loss is partly alleviated by the stimulus to grow a thicker, longer hair coat. However, growing hair requires both energy and protein.If the diet is deficient in energy, the weaning will still grow a long, shaggy coat, reducing its rate of development as essential nutrients are diverted to maintai...

Minis & Colic - reaching out for Kohnke’s Own® Gastro Coat™

Did You Know that.... An adult mini has about one third of the lumen or small intestine internal 'tube' diameter as compared to larger horse breeds simply because they are small in body size. They are only able to grind up food particles to the same 2-3mm diameter as a larger horse to enable efficient digestive attack and utilisation. If they have poor teeth, are fed coarse dry hay which is difficult to chew, or eat grains, pellets and hard foods quickly, then the food mass is more likely to for...

A GOOD TIME TO REDUCE PROTEIN?

High protein intakes at levels of 50-60% above daily requirements, especially from lucerne hay, can generate more body heat (6 times more heat as compared to starch and fibre overload) in the hindgut as the protein is fermented by hind gut microbes, as well as increase water loss in the droppings and reduce water excretion through the kidneys in a hard working horse. Lucerne contains around 17% crude protein and a heat producing fibre content, which both add to digestive heat production. Whilst ...

Sacroiliac ligament strain and joint sprain, stress fractures and chronic arthritic pain account for 50% of all back injuries. Some of the symptoms which indicate that your horse may have suffered a sacroiliac injury include pulling or lugging to one side, or an inability to work on a circle or bend correctly. Additionally, many horses will drag their toes on one or both hind limbs whe...

'RONAN' SAVED THROUGH LOVE AND DETERMINATION, NuBind® and Kohnke's Own® Gastro Coat™

When well known Trainer and Clerk of The Course Mr Terry Wenn approached us to discuss a few issues with lovely 6 year old ex racehorse Ronan, we were keen to get to work.

Well if we could there was a chance he would be the perfect horse for any Clerke, Terry's dream mount! Ronan was constantly flicking his nose and on top of that he was unwilling to stand still, the restless leg syndrome. Not...

DONT KILL VALUABLE MICROBES!

Microbes are a number of organisms slogging away in the gastro-intestinal tract. Their role is crucial to the processing and digestion of food as well as the health and survival of your horse. Should you change your food type suddenly, you change the environment in which the microbes are adjusted to, thus causing copious numbers of these invaluable little workers to die. The death of these will inevitably contribute to the creation of an environment where toxins can cause harm to the digestive s...
