Running Cool Senior is nutritionally tailored to foster optimal health in your older horse

My beautiful old boy 'Harry' struggled to keep weight on and lacked any energy in the past. Since I changed to Running Cool Senior he is a different horse. He looks magnificent, has plenty of energy and fun about him again and cleans his feed bin out every time.

Running Cool Senior

RUNNING COOL™ Senior is a fully extruded, conditioning feed carefully formulated for aged ponies and horses. It is a excellent feed for those ponies and horses in retirement that need conditioning and older ponies and horses exercising in light to moderate work.

Senior contains balanced levels of energy, high quality proteins and amino acids. It also contains enriched levels of micronutrients including anti—oxidant vitamins, minerals and chelated trace minerals to support the nutritional needs of your aged horse or pony whether they are permanently retired or still in some level of work.

The Extrusion process adds a large range of benefits compared to pelleted and standard feeds. RUNNING COOL™ Senior combines ingredients and processing techniques that cater for the unique dietary requirements of senior equines. Listed below are just a few advantages in feeding extruded products

  • The extrusion process changes the nutritional characteristics making proteins, carbohydrates and liquids more available for the horse's metabolism
  • The nutrients become more readily adsorbed in the small intestine, reducing overload into the hindgut.
  • Extruded nuggets promote chewing and saliva production, which is essential for buffering stomach acids.
  • Extruded feeds are low in dust and fines, making it an excellent feed for horses with respiratory problems

Ingredients sourced from the following:

Barley, Lupins, Vegetable Protein meal (inc. Extruded Full Fat Soyabean meal), Legume Hulls, Millrun, Vegetable oil, Calcium phosphate, Limestone, Lysine, Salt, Running Cool™ Multi-vitamin and mineral supplement.

Feeding Directions

  • Daily feeding rates are provided as a guide only. Variation will occur depending on body condition of the horse, climate, quality of pasture and/or hay, chaff available and individual variation.
  • This is a concentrated feed that must be fed in conjunction with hay and or pasture so that roughage comprises no less than 50% of the diet by weight.
  • Do not feed more than 0.5 kg per 100 kg of bodyweight in any one feed. Higher amounts should be split between 2 or more feeds per day.
  • Introduce over a 1 to 2 week period into your horses diet
  • Ensure that clean, fresh water is available at all times. Access to a salt lick is also recommended.
