Equilibrium B1 Cool Mix 12kg

The 12kg bags offer much better value for money than our buckets. Many people with a horse or two purchase these as an economical way to supplement their horses on a continual basis. One of these bags will last the average horse for about 24 weeks or six months.

Description

Distinctive in its blue and black bag, Equilibrium B1 Cool Mix is a complete supplement recommended for nervous or excitable horses. Containing the same ingredients as its Equilibrium Mineral Mix stable mate, B1 Cool Mix does not contain ingredients that will make your horse sleepy or lethargic. Where nervousness or excitability is brought on by nutritional issues, our B1 Cool Mix product maybe able to help. Based on our own observations, as well as on feedback from many customers that we’ve spoken to over the years, the horses for which B1 Cool Mix works seem to able to think better in circumstances that would otherwise be daunting or frightening.

Equilibrium B1 Cool Mix was initially developed for a show jumping horse that was competing at World Cup level. The sights and sounds of royal shows always present a challenging environment to horses, none more so to a horse that suffers nervousness or excitability. Mulberry Road was one such horse that turned in erratic performances as a result of his nerves and it was after adding B1 Cool Mix to his feed that his consistency improved and he started turning in some very pleasing results.

Geeking Out About Ingredients

It is important to note that the listing in our composition is for the elements that are of nutritional value to horses. This is why when the values are added up, they do not equal 1kg.

For example, Calcium Carbonate (CaCO3) is a useful ingredient to supplement calcium in the diet. The Calcium component of Calcium Carbonate only accounts for 40.08% of the total mass, the other 59.98% is Carbon and Oxygen. So let’s pretend Equilibrium had a new Calcium product that was made from 100% Calcium Carbonate (we don’t), we would declare 401g of Calcium on the composition because this is the nutritional element most relevant to horses.
