Inulin is a special sugars which work along with direct fed microbials to help promote a strong balance of beneficial bacteria in the foal's digestive tract. This sugar can be utilized by beneficial bacteria as an energy source for growth and proliferation but remain unavailable to many pathogenic or disease causing microorganisms.
Specifically formulated with highly digestible ingredients, its natural good taste stimulates appetite and promotes steady growth, proper muscle and bone development and a glossy hair coat. The unique agglomerated formula mixes instantly and stays in solution.
Grow-N-Glow is recommended when the mare doesn't produce adequate milk or rejects the foal. It is also ideal for orphan foals. Some horse breeders use Grow-N-Glow as a supplement to mare's milk, allowing the mare to rebuild her body and to re-breed in a shorter time interval. This supplemental milk feeding also allows greater growth of the foal.
