I got an email back from the company and this is what they had to say...............

"When you first start to feed a fat supplement, some of the fat will pass through. This occurs with both liquid forms of fat and Cool Calories 100. Reduce the dose rate and this should improve."

I would tend to think that the powder that they adhere the fat to is what I am seeing. But he didn't mention this.

Yeah, with supplements it's sometimes hard to tell if they're really making a difference or not. At least with something like Cool Calories you should see a weight gain after a short wait and if not then you can try something else!

Well, see, I won't unless he starts to lose because he was on oil and doing great!!! Someone said corn oil is not good for them so I switched to the CC. So I guess if its working I will not see a change at all. Thought he was doing better on the oil but not totally sure.

I don't know if corn oil is good or bad, but I've had many (like 4 or 5) horsemen that I know which have fed it to their horses and they shine and keep weight and look amazing like no other.

Will I try it with Sky? Probably not and that's my choice. If it worked for your horse, maybe it's worth going back to? I'm not sure.. I like to research what I'm feeding my boy rather than just go off of a few people's opinions (which I'm not saying you did..)

Oh I researched the heck out of it. Then someone here said that the corn oil has too much of one omega believe it was the 6 to three ratio that can cause inflammatory issues. So I did a bit of looking. Its fine as long as you even it out but I didn't get that far cause I thought I would try this.

Ah that makes sense.

Hmm this is interesting, I used cool calories this winter to keep weight on my horse and worked beautifuly. I don't recal seeing it in his poo. Im sorry I can't be of much help but if its in his poo I would say he is not igesting it. But there is not a reason why he should not be digesting it!
