yea i read that post after i postd mine. Thats a good possability. If you read the ingredients i believe its some kind of wax that they adhere it to. Maybe your horse just cant digest the wax type material.

Try using 100% Organic Hemp Oil (0%THC and non-psychoactive) feeding 1 to 2oz per feeding AM & PM. This contains the optimal ratio of Omega 6 to Omega 3 (3:1), better than flax, and also contains Omega 9 and GLA as well as several vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. It will help with the weight management, supplement and nutrient uptake. Helps treat and prevent tying up and promotes the stomachs natural production that coats the lining snd prevents ulcers. You will also notice a shinier cooat, mane, tail, and hooves and healthier skin. The omega 3 and GLA help reduce inflamation and arthritis pain, reduces metabolic heat production. Contains naturally occuring phospholipids which aid in cell membrane growth and regeneration promoting quicker healing. Snake oil? Not at all. Google Hemp oil for horses and do the research yourself. There are more and more horse owners becoming aware and switching form traditional products like corn, canola, and soy oils that contain synthetic vitamins and stabilizers necessary because of the high heat processing using Hexane (petroleum by product and known neurotoxin), and caustic soda for deoderizing and bleaching. Many manufactured products are excellent for horse health. This is just a natural alternative that is naturally good for them and saves money in the long run with lower vet bills for unecessary ailments. Sorry for being long winded, but horse health is important to me. Hope this helps!

I can say I have never noticed our fat supplement in the manure. We use Empower Boost.

Well I use Cool Calories and it was never in my mares poo. I have been using it for months now, I find it is much cheaper than oil as it only costs me $11 a month.

By the way I hope you aren't actually giving 8 oz?!?! The recommened dose is 2 oz. the scoop equals one ounce.
