Keeping horses warm with Hay Pillow

Forage (hay or pasture) provides large amounts of insoluble fiber which is primarily digested in the hindgut (where bacterial fermentation produces internal body heat).

Hay PillHigh fiber feeds produce long lasting internal body heat to maintain core body temperature.

The hindgut is your horse’s furnace!

Keeping it stoked with fuel (forage) helps to keep them warm internally.

Gastric ulcers should be a concern whenever forage is restricted for periods of time.

The stress associated with lack of forage, the discomfort of gastric acid build up in the stomach and being cold promotes ulcers and a less than optimum immune system.

By respecting and providing a natural environment, free choice forage (whether slow fed or not) in multiple locations, a warm winter hair coat, concentrated source of calories if needed, appropriate protection from the elements and freedom of movement - you can help your herd cope best with colder temperatures.

Avoid Heartbreak. Get Equine Colic Relief

“It’s colic.”

Colic 1The words no horse owner ever wants to hear their vet say.

Colic is the number one killer of horses – a painful emergency that can result in major vet bills, surgery…or worse.

Horses become more susceptible to colic in winter, as they tend to drink less when the weather and their water is colder.

A compounding factor is limited turnout due to foul weather, which affects gut motility and increases the risk of colic.

Equine Colic Relief is the number ONE product that stops a bout of colic in progress.

It’s easy to keep on hand—just in case—as it has a shelf life of 14 years.

Equine Colic Relief restores motility to the intestines and restores gut sounds within 10 to 45 minutes.Colic 3

It can dissolve impactions, rehydrate the intestines, rebalance electrolytes, and restore the whole GI tract to a normal state.

Temperature does not affect the efficacy of the product, so have it with you when you are traveling, showing, eventing, trail riding, whatever you do with your horse.

It’s easy to administer as horses like the taste of Equine Colic Relief.

It’s safe for all ages and all size of horses, mules, donkeys or any animal of the equine family.

Having a bottle or two on hand when the weather makes it difficult for the vet to get to you quickly is very worthwhile, saving you possibly long waiting times or trying to haul your horse in bad weather.

Find Equine Colic Relief at your local tack shop or order online at or by phone at 888-675-5866.
