COOL FIBRE EXTRA is a blend of soy hulls & cold-pressed linseed flake. This blend has the same benefits as COOL FIBRE ORIGINAL with several additonal benefits from linseed which is a rich source of Omegas 3,6 & 9. These include: immune system and joint support, improved coat & hoof condition and anti-inflammatory factors. In addition, lignans contain antioxidants which contain cancer prevention properties.  Linseed also provides essential amino acids for improved muscular and topline development. It is palatable, low in sugar & starch and contains healthy fats from residual oil for conditioning and coat chine as well as mucilage production for intestinal support & potential gut healing properties.

The co-product of milling soy meal, soy hulls have long been regarded internationally as an excellent source of fibre for horses because of their superior digestibility. This superior digestibility is why soy hulls are included in the ‘Super Fibre’ family of fibres alongside beet pulp and linseed flake. Soy hulls are the outer shell (or husk) of the soy beans & while the soy hulls have a moderate level of quality proteins and residual oil, they are valued in equine nutrition for their QUALITY FIBRE.

COOL FIBRE EXTRA is an excellent fibre base that you can use as a great fibre mash to begin to build your Total Meal Ration.  Make sure you still include a ‘long fibre’ such as chaff or chaffage, to support peristalis in the digesta and to encourage your horse to chew and grind their meal to support additional saliva production.

While suitable for horses with Metabolic Disorders, such as Laminitis and Cushings, each horse or pony should be managed on a case by case basis and only after a professional consultation.

COOL FIBRE EXTRA has the same benefits as COOL FIBRE and several additional benefits to provide at least a few good reasons to make it a stable favorite:
