Probiotic: Forco


This is the Probiotic that I recommend.


My Opinion:


We had a big, beautiful Warmblood gelding in training.

A one point, he was having Gas Colics every 2-6 weeks.

Not good.

A shot of Banamine by the Vet took care of the problem immediately, but still not something that we wanted to have happening, either on a regular basis, or ever!

At that point, I was still feeding Oat hay, in conjunction with Orchard Grass hay and Alfalfa.

As a solution, we experimented with changing his diet.

We added Forco to his daily scoop of grain, plus we took him off the Oat hay.


***Important Helpful Hint***

Oat hay causes gas!

If your horse is having any issues with gas, be sure not to feed any oat hay!

Now, we fed him a blend of Orchard grass and Alfalfa, and Forco, along with Platinum Performance (I will talk about this product next), in a general grain (Purina Equine Senior).

No more gas colic, ever!

Of course, because we changed two components/variables at the same time (added Forco and took away Oat hay), I cannot say for sure which benefited this horse the most, but regardless, I trust that the Forco was helpful.


I highly recommend Forco for all horses, but especially for the big warmbloods,

and Friesians, who are prone to digestive issues.




Forco


I have had complete success with it for my horse's digestive health.






(Copied from the Forco website):


"The digestive system is at the heart of most major problems in a horse such as colic, diarrhea, compaction, founder, poor doers, poor appetite and weight loss. FORCO® Feed Supplement Digestive Fortifier is a source of nutrients that feed and nurture the entire scope of bacterial and microbial populations in the full spectrum of the digestive system.

The FORCO formula helps to bring a horse’s digestive system to full performance. Hay, grain, vitamins, and mineral supplements can now be broken down into a form that can be absorbed into the blood stream of the horse, thus, providing maximum nutrition to every microscopic cell in the horse. FORCO formula assists in producing maximum digestion for maximum nutrition!

FORCO Feed Supplement Digestive Fortifier is a one of a kind product. It is one of the few pure and all-natural products on the market. It is dependable, stable, and safe. It does not contain live microbial or live-cell yeast, due to their perishability and inconsistent performance. It has no carriers or fillers and there are no supplemental vitamins, minerals or proteins. The FORCO formula contains only pure fermentation products designed to promote normal microorganism and bacteria population in the digestive tract of the horse."
