Chelated copper and zinc paste for optimal absorptionView Product
When the seasons transition from winter into spring so too does your horse’s coat. As the daylight hours lengthen your horse will shed its winter coat and a finer, lighter coat will grow through. Supporting this transition with key supplementation can help to ensure your horse has healthy skin and a gleaming coat for the months ahead. Kentucky Karron Oil & Copper-Max Paste are the ultimate combination for aiding your horse’s coat condition, digestion & immune system coming into spring.
Supplementing with oil will support supple skin, reduce flakiness and dander, and add moisture to the skin which may also help with hair removal when grooming. Kentucky Karron Oil is rich in omega-3 fatty acids which are typically deficient in a stabled horse’s diet. Omega-3 fatty acids have natural anti-inflammatory properties so, not only will this oil support skin and coat health, it will also have potential beneficial effects on digestive health, joint health and immune function. Along with all these benefits, Kentucky Karron Oil is a non-heating source of calories so can be beneficial for horses needing to gain weight without the added ‘fizz’ that can come with upping the feed rates to match increased workloads.
Copper and zinc play their part in several key body functions, including coat pigmentation. A horse low in copper or zinc will show it in their coats with dark colour horses appearing ‘rusty’ and lighter coloured horses appearing yellow or brassy. Grassland and hay are typically low in both zinc and copper therefore supplementation is often necessary. Copper-Max Paste is a convenient, easy to use syringe which contains chelated bioavailable sources of copper and zinc. Supplement one syringe monthly for adult horses or bi-monthly if no other significant zinc or copper sources are present in the diet. A healthy zinc and copper intake will not only ensure your horses coat shines, but it will also support hoof strength, your horse’s immune function, and support sound growth and development of young horses.
Supplementing with Copper-Max Paste and Kentucky Karron Oil give your horse a head start coming into spring, whether coming back into regular work, upping workload in preparation for competition or showing, or simply transitioning from a stabled routine to a turn-out routine. Help your horse feel their best inside and out with Kentucky Karron Oil & Copper-Max Paste.
