What Might I Expect After Switching My Horses To Keep Pace®?
Several things have been noted by customers after taking their horses off a grain based diet and switching to a nutritionally sound high quality ration like Keep Pace®:
Many horses will be easier to work with and have a longer attention span. "Hot" and spooky horses should become noticeably quieter and steadier.
The hair coat will become glossy and shiny due to a large amount of flax seed in the ration. No need to topdress with expensive supplements to get a "show ready" coat.
Your feed costs will be less expensive. Keep Pace® is made locally with the highest standards by a family owned and operated mill in business since 1911. There is no fancy marketing program to support. You will save several dollars over competitor's low starch feeds.
Geriatric horses or "hard-keepers" will gain weight with ease because Keep Pace® is easily digested. There are many geriatric horses that are now doing wonderfully after the switch with many still be ridden. A reduction in "body soreness" is often noted because of the high level of Omega-3 fats which are anti-inflammatory.Horses will recover faster from work, have better endurance and enjoy a show quality coat from the abundance of flax seed in the formula.The fly problem in your barn should decrease dramatically as there are no grains or molasses in Keep Pace®.
"Easy-keepers" will have fewer obesity problems now that the gut is working the way nature intended.
Gastric ulcers will no longer be exacerbated by grains in the diet. In fact, grain is the worst thing you can feed a horse with ulcers.
“Tying up” is very often associated with a diet high in starch and grains and will likely not recur when that diet is replaced with a feed ration which is high in quality fats, digestible fibers, probiotics, and antioxidants.
Laminitic horses and those who are insulin resistant or cushinoid should benefit from a low starch diet. Also those horses who have been found to have PSSM and EPSM will probably be advised to seek out a low starch program. Blood glucose and insulin levels will remain much more stable by removing grain and molasses from the diet and adding quality fats and digestible fibers.
Always be sure to check with your veterinarian regarding dietary recommendations for your horse.
