It is commonly thought that it is possible to tell when a horse is dehydrated by looking at it, that may be so but only after 4 to 5% of the body weight in fluid has already been lost can dehydration be detected by skin elasticity. In the 500KG horse this which represents some 20 Kg of fluid so it is prudent to always supply some extra sodium levels above that which is naturally contained in the forage and other feeds. Levels do not have to be precise.  Appetite for salt can vary quite widely even between siblings. Western salts helps to ensure horses and ponies drink normally  When fed everyday feeding a 25 ml spoonful per day in conjunction with  good quality forage  usually provides sufficient Sodium per day for the inactive 400-500Kg Bodyweight horse in winter. For the more active horse in summer feed extra sodium & potassium in the form of an electrolyte (Electros) and with any pronounced sweating.

WESTERN SALTS are in powder form and devoid of any overall cereal or by product carrier Include in the bucket fed feed.

When fed in addition to adequate amounts of forage containing average levels of minerals and vitamins a horse being fed a spoonful (40g) of WESTERN SALTS TM will consume sufficient minerals and vitamins to meet and safely exceed all published NRC (National Research Council) Washington recommendations.

GOLDENOIL is the feeding oil of choice for all horses and ponies diagnosed suffering from or suspected of having Cushing’s disease (PPID) and imparting extra support for horses and pones on prescribed drugs or alternative fed specifics to help the condition.


GOLDENOIL is a double infused feeding oil that means taking in the case of Goldenoil, Calendula (Pot Marigold) Flowers and macerating (soaking) them in fine quality Sunflower Oil for between 4 to six weeks then straining off the solid residues from which the goodness has been extracted and then repeating the process for a further length of time then adding previously made Curcumin Oil then a substantial amount of natural mixed tocopherols (Vitamin E).


An important feature of Goldenoil is that there is a sufficiency of Lecithin which is required by the body to burn fats and inhibits the establishment of fatty deposit accumulation by keeping them in movement round the body. The Lecithin stops the thickening of fats congealing into the numerous nodes and junctures of the lymphatic system and is a source of choline particularly vital to the well-being of the Equine.


The  ingredients used and the  process involved in making GOLDENOIL  provides  a valuable source of  lipids (fat/oils) to the horse’s daily diet in a  very digestible and assimilatable form. The potential benefits are myriad some of which are listed below

Notes –

Curcumin is included in GOLDENOIL – Curcumin the 5% active ingredient of Turmeric is fat soluble so there must be some source of fat in the diet to promote its absorption. Including a recommended daily amount in GOLDENOIL is an ideal way of delivering this potent source of antioxidants.

The natural Vitamin E in GOLDENOIL is from Sunflower oil, the oil in the mascaraed Calendula petals and from Wheat Germ Oil amounting to over 2500 mg of mixed tocopherols (Vitamin E from natural sources) per 50 ml of Golden Oil. 

GOLDENOIL is a high quality feeding oil rich in the essential fatty acid Linoleic acid necessary for the transport of fats and the maintenance and repair of the membrane that encloses the cell. GOLDENOIL is particularly beneficial in helping to protect and repair the skin as it has Mitogenic (cell proliferant) and anti-histamine properties which is especially helpful when horses are bothered by flies and biting insects.
