Energy is critical for horses to obtain optimum growth and achieve overall health and appearance.
Energy is critical for horses to obtain optimum growth and achieve overall health and appearance; however, some diets high in soluble carbohydrate levels (grains) have been linked to the development of Orhopedic disease, Colic, and Laminitis
Equine Health E Oil contains easily digested calories that are absorbed in the small intestine not requiring any fermentation in the cecum and colon, keeping performance horses cooler in the summer and greatly reducing the incidence of colic and laminitis
FEED USE: Foal and yearlings: Daily top dress 1-2 ounces of EQUINE BLUELITE POWDER on the grain ration.
Working/pleasure horses/ponies: Top dress EQUINE BLUELITE POWDER on the grain ration according to the degree of dehydration based on the following:
|WEIGHT||AMOUNT OF EQUINE BLUELITE|
|Ponies/Horses||Routine or Mild Physical Activity||Extensive
|300-600 lbs||1-2 ounces daily||2-3 ounces daily|
|600-900 lbs||3-4 ounces daily||4-6 ounces daily|
|900-1200 lbs||5-6 ounces daily||6-10 ounces daily|
|1200 lbs +||7-8 ounces daily||8-10 ounces daily|
WATER USE: Add 1-2 ounces of EQUINE BLUELITE POWDER to each 2 gallons of drinking water consumed by a horse daily.
Horses will usually consume drinking water equivalent to 7-9% of their body weight. The demands of profuse sweating from hot weater, lactation and extensive exercise may increase their water demands by 20-50%.

When does your horse need electrolytes?
Two-thirds of a horse’s body weight is water, making electrolyte balance an important every day event for your horse. A horse can lose fluid through sweating, defecation, urination, and respiration. Dehydration increases during stress, hot weather, heavy workout, sweating, diet changes and disease. If electrolyte balance is not replenished, blood volume decreases and potential negative health effects such as sluggish behavior, colic, failure to perform, and shock.
Are all electrolytes the same?
Simply stated, ‘no’. Certain electrolytes utilize a high level of salt which can do more harm than good. The five major electrolytes which must be replenished include: Potassium, Chloride, Magnesium, Sodium, and Calcium. To ensure that the supplemented electrolytes and nutrients are absorbed, Equine BlueLite uses Betaine, an osmolyte to help with water and electrolyte uptake by the cells. To help effectively use and restore lost electrolytes Equine BlueLite includes a proprietary formula of energy metabolites and electrolytes.
How can we reduce the occurrence of sand colic?
To help reduce the occurrences of sand colic it is important to provide adequate amounts of fiber, fresh water, and help restore proper nutrient absorption. We’ve developed a Sand Colic Protocol that outlines a 16 day program to help restore gut health and minimize the negative nutritional effects of colic. Read our Sand Colic Protocol HERE
