Fecal Water Syndrome. You may have heard about a topic getting a lot of coverage lately – Fecal Water Syndrome (FWS). Some common signs include noticeable fecal matter stains on hind legs, tail, and dock areas. Irritated skin can result both from the constant cleaning or lack of cleaning in those areas. Stall walls or bedding may also show evidence of fecal water. Besides general discomfort, symptoms of leaky gut can also include behavior or personality changes, poor performance, weight loss, insulin resistance, skin allergies, and even chronic colic. If this sounds like something your horse may be experiencing, reach out to your veterinarian for more information and diagnosis.
After diagnosis, one of the first steps in managing a horse with FWS is feeding a high quality, balanced diet. Increased turnout and alleviating environmental stressors are also beneficial steps in restoring a healthy hind gut. Something as simple as trailering for only a couple of hours can impact your horse’s microbiome.
How are some ways Stable Mix complete feeds can help a horse with loose manure or FWS? A horse with an inflamed hind gut can benefit from a bit of a “reset” for their GI tract. Loose manure, colitis, or FWS are indicative of inflammation in the digestive tract. Long stem forage (hay) can irritate these inflamed surfaces during digestion and movement through the GI tract. Long stem forage also causes more bulk which can negatively impact the cecum during bouts of (chronic) inflammation. By switching to an all-pelleted ration, you can minimize the “scratch factor” and bulk of hay, allowing the horse’s GI tract to heal and reduce inflammation. Some horses with chronic hind gut sensitivities can never transition back to hay diet without flare ups of the condition. Some horses are able to transition to partial hay/pelleted rations. It is a balance based on each individual horse. In any case, using a complete feed ensures your horse is receiving crucial balanced nutrition during this “reset” or new lifestyle change.

What is CBD Oil and Why Would it Benefit My Horse?
The use of CBD oil in horses, mules and donkey’s is on the rise. CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in the hemp plant which means that it will not make your horse high or alter your horses. When CBD enters the body, its effects are mitigated by the endocannabinoid system, a physiological system that occurs naturally in all mammals. All mammals have CBD-1 and CBD-2 receptors. CBD-1 is neurological and in humans helps with anxiety and headaches. CBD-2 receptors are related to the rest of the body and triggers the areas that need attention. We now believe that once CBD oil is introduced into the body, it tells the persons’ or horses own CBD receptors to kick into high gear and release more of their own natural CBD to support pain management, faster healing, digestion, appetite, arthritis, and inflammation.
Is CBD oil a calming supplement? We don’t feel that it is. We believe that if your horse is free of pain and feeling better, their anxiety will lessen, and they will want to go out and perform at a higher level.
When purchasing CBD, always buy from a reputable company. The Certificates of Analysis lab reports should be listed on the company website and will show that the company is following the guidelines of the Farm Bill.

Sacate Pellet Mills • • • •
We began operations in 1983 as a wholesaler to Lakin Milling Company. At that time, we produced one product: our sun-cured alfalfa Standard Bread pellet. In 1985, we began selling to the public and expanded our product line to include Thorough Bread: a fortified pellet consisting of sun-cured alfalfa hay, cracked corn, and a vitamin mineral supplement to provide added energy. We also soon recognized a need for a product tailored to less active animals. Bermuda is a widely available grass here in the Southwest that when blended with alfalfa creates a lower protein and lower calorie feed alternative.
In 2018, Sacate Pellet Mills purchased Lakin Milling Company, a longstanding and highly reputable brand. Lakin Milling had been serving our community with high-quality products since 1968. The mineral fortified products produced by Lakin provided a desirable expansion to our product offerings and a loyal customer base. Together, a stronger, more capable pelletized feed company emerged.
Any combination of product types can be accommodated. Call or check the webiste to find a location near you. (602) 237-3809 www.sacate.com

Chaffhaye • • • •
CHAFFHAYE, a premium Non-GMO Alfalfa, is ideal for ensuring the digestive health and well-being of all horses. Most baled hay goes through a drying process which removes a majority of the naturally occurring plant juice from the forage. This essentially drains life from the feed. We chop, culture, and bag CHAFFHAYE at 50% moisture which preserves much of the alfalfa’s essential nutrients. By sustaining the plant’s moisture content, CHAFFHAYE becomes the closest product you can buy to fresh, natural pasture.
CHAFFHAYE alfalfa is harvested at optimal plant maturity to maximize nutrient levels and palatability while also eliminating the dust and airborne mold typically found in baled hay. While still fresh, the forage is chopped and compressed into air-tight bags where an anaerobic fermentation process begins. Inside the sealed bag, fibrous plant matter is broken down and plant sugars are converted into lactic acid by beneficial bacteria. This sort of pre-digestion lowers the overall pH level and makes it easier for a horse to extract energy and nutrition from the alfalfa. Ultimately, CHAFFHAYE becomes rich in probiotics, yeast, and enzymes which provide health and physiological benefits well beyond the forage’s original nutrition. Visit www.chaffhaye.com
