The Importance of Nutrition during Rehab

If you have owned horses, you have likely experienced a time where your horse had an injury, was on layup, or needed to be rehabbed. When thinking about the immune system and soft tissues, there is one common factor that should always be considered or it could be the missing link in your program: Nutrition. Do you consider nutrition a part of your preventative maintenance or rehab program? A balanced diet is crucial when having a horse on layup or light work because of an injury or illness.

Energy is the foundation to push all systems forward. Insufficient energy limits utilization of other nutrients. These nutrients could be essential in soft tissue repair and regeneration. Conversely, excess energy can cause unnecessary weight gain or increase risk of laminitis. Monitor your horse’s body condition score during layup & rehab to ensure you are keeping them in a safe zone.

Quality protein is another essential factor in a balanced diet. Proteins are broken down into amino acids in the horse’s body. These important little amino acids are components of muscle, enzymes, and several hormones. There are several amino acids, lysine being one of the essential ones. Essential amino acids must be supplied by the diet. If the diet is deficient in lysine and other essential amino acids, it impairs protein synthesis. If lysine is important in soft tissues, like collagen, how could a deficit be impacting your rehab? It is important to consider a balanced profile of amino acids, versus just supplementing with a specific one. Overall, amino acids have key roles affecting muscle function, antioxidant protection that help tissues recover quickly, gut health, joint and hoof and skin health, and are required in roles of the immune system.

Minerals are another important aspect of a nutrition plan. Minerals are needed for formation, maintenance, and repair of joints and bones, connective tissues (ligaments and tendons), hoof integrity, skin health, synthesis of collagen, immune system, and more. Minerals also need to be maintained within proper ratios of other minerals in the diet and should not be supplemented on an individual basis unless recommended by a veterinarian or nutritionist. Minerals, like Selenium, play a role in the antioxidant system.

Finally, vitamins have a very important place in a balanced diet. Some vitamins are produced in the body while others must be supplied in the diet. Water soluble vitamins are not stored in the body like fat soluble vitamins. Vitamins are involved in bone remodeling, maintenance of tissues, immune response, and antioxidants. Vitamins and minerals have a sensitive relationship and work together in several metabolic functions. If either is deficient or excessive in the diet, it can impact their roles.

Having a balanced, complete diet is imperative to promote overall health. A diet should be addressed when anything changes in the horse’s life like activity level, health status, production stage, and any changes in feed affecting the nutrient balance. As always, provide your horse with fresh clean water. Above all else, water is the number one essential nutrient in a horse’s diet.

In some cases of rehab, the diet is more than a supporting factor. Some clinical diagnoses or procedures can be enhanced by utilizing diet as a solution. Clinical conditions like colitis, fecal water syndrome, IBD, post-surgery, or dental conditions can be dramatically impacted by utilizing diet as a tool in recovery or maintenance. Be sure to register for the Healthier, Happier Horses Virtual Summer Series final event, hosted by Stable Mix, to learn more about a complete feed’s role in your horse’s condition. Guest speaker, Dr. Rachel Mottet, MS, PhD, of Legacy Equine Nutrition will be taking a deep dive into nutrition’s role with insulin resistance, EMS, and PPID.

Stable Mix™ complete feeds, manufactured by Elk Grove Milling, Inc. have a formula for every life stage of the horse. Not only is this advantageous for barns with several horses that have various needs, but it also helps the single horse owner know their horse’s nutritional needs are met from the very start, for their lifetime.

The core of Stable Mix™ products start with hay, the very base of any forage-first diet. In addition to hay, Stable Mix™ feeds have super fibers like almond hulls or beet pulp, quality protein sources from soybean meal, added fat from rice bran, additional salt, and performance minerals from Zinpro. The blend of Zinpro minerals, Zinc, Manganese, and Copper, supports immune function, hoof & coat quality, bone and joint development and integrity, and so much more. Stable Mix™ feeds also contain full spectrum coverage from Alltech solutions with prebiotics, probiotics, postbiotics, and yeast. The recent addition of Chromium from Kemin Equine to Stable Mix™ feeds assists with better utilization of glucose.

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

Stall Grazer 3 in 1 Horse Feeders • • •
To understand how to feed our horses, we need to understand how a horse is programmed to eat. Horses are grazers by nature and when you observe them in a natural pasture setting you will notice that their head is at ground level and that they are eating approximately 17 hours each day. This is nature’s way of slow feeding and has worked since the beginning of time and long before horse feeders were ever invented.
We transplanted horses from their natural environment to one that was more convenient for our own purpose. Box stalls or paddocks removed the access to free choice grazing and the slow steady intake of feed. A horse under light working conditions will consume about 2% of its body weight each day or approximately 20 pounds of hay.
The Stall Grazer 3 in 1 Horse feeder serves as a grazing station for your horse. It is designed to sit at ground level and allows the horse to eat with the head down in a natural grazing position. The feeder has a capacity to hold a full days’ worth of feed and will virtually eliminate wasted hay. Your horse will eventually give up trying to eat until the feed is gone and start slowly consuming the feed 17 hours per day just like they do in nature. Simply keep hay in the feeder. Most horses will self-regulate their intake to suit their needs. A natural slow feeder! Start feeding your horse the way nature intended with the Stall Grazer 3 in 1 horse feeder.
