Kool and Kalm horse feed....

Has anyone had any experience with Kool and Kalm horse feed by Aussie Logic. Ithink they changed the name to Total Equine...let me know your thoughts. I have a gelding that colics and an old geezer that can barely chew. Trying to get all of my horses on the same feed without breaking the bank. Equine Senior is about to make me go BROKE!!!!

YES!!! I have been feeding my 29 yr old blind appy K & K / Total Equine all winter. He has done amazing on it. I also give a bit of it to my other horses tho they do fine without it.

I feed Cheno 1 large coffee can(equals 3#) twice a day along with about 1/3rd can of alfalfa pellets. I wet it well so it is softened when he eats it. Lil bit soupy but not too. If not a tad soupy it gets sticky and hard for him to get out of the corners. He can still eat hay tho he is missing 4 teeth and has 4 others that are nearly worn all the way down. *dentist was just here a couple weeks ago*

Cheno was looking a tad ribby going into winter tho he had a round barrel(hay thing). I am quite happy with the product.. You also do not have to worry about them foundering on it, etc..

You switch them up differently than you do a hard feed, as this is really more a fiber feed. You stop feeding hard feed the day before you start this.. No problem because it's not a concentrate like oats, corn, etc. It can be a total feed if the horse cannot process/chew hay or graze etc.. I am so glad to have found it just as Cheno appeared to need something more. I used to feed beet pulp and would continue with that if this was not an option.

Thanks for your reply Appyt!! I really need to find something that will help the 11 year old from colic and the 18 year old as well...(he's missing several teeth from years of neglect) It seems this fits the bill and everyone will be happy with it. It also claims to have a "calming" effect over horses...much needed with my high strung Paso mix!!!

Oh, I nearly forgot, I have a friend who's gelding is one of those jumpy nervous flighty types and it has helped him a lot. He's still very lookielu but he is definitely calmer.. And I would suspect the colic issue may be helped with this feed as well since it is so easily digested.. As a matter of fact it was she who found this feed while searching for calming supplements. :;)

Can you buy kool and kalm in the usa? My horse is spazzy and a hard keeper in the winter. How much is it? We are also buying a 19 y/o and want to watch / maintain her weight too.

Yep, Abby it's available is the US. You just have to go to their website to see if there's a dealer near you. A lot of people here in Texas swear by it...just wanted to get yalls take on it!
