Roasted Soybeans are used in “Roasted To Perfection”. The Soybeans are roasted whole and cut in half before being mixed and bagged.  Roasting allows for optimal digestion by the horse.  The oil stays in the bean so the animal has access to the oil naturally.   By adding additional Soybean oil, the amount of molasses used is greatly reduced.   Horses seem to
love the scent and taste of Soybean oil, along with a superb energy source it also helps
finicky horses eat well and allows them to meet their nutritional demands.  

Fat supplementation is safer than adding carbohydrates and proteins as it does not produce the high internal heats. Soybean oil has 2.25 times more energy than that of carbohydrates and proteins making for a much more concentrated, but safe energy source. This type of supplementation allows for safer weight gains while reducing the risk of colic and/or founder. Soybean oil naturally contributes the benefits of Linolenic acid that is the parent substance of Omega-3 fatty acids, which are beneficial to regulating blood pressure and heart rate.

High fat diets are becoming more recognized as a means of achieving better performance
and health from our horses.  One must remember that a Horse must consume no less than 50% of its daily intake from forage. If this is reversed we run the risk of negatively affecting
the ph balance and activity with in the horse’s cecum and large intestine. Ultimately this will increase the chances of colic and founder. Because forage is bulky, the addition of soybean oil can easily add the needed energy to the diet without compromising digestive health by decreasing the percentage of forage in the horse’s diet.  High fat diets enable high performance animals to safely meet their energy requirements. This is due to the fact that horses have a fairly small digestive tract that limits the total amount feed that they can consume. With the addition of soybean oil, a safe concentrated energy source, energy requirements are more easily met. University research indicates a sparing effect on muscle glycogen stores, which can be mobilized to produce short bursts of maximal power output. This makes soybean oil a popular choice for performance horses.

Feeding high-fat diets helps adapt the horse to using body fat as an energy source. 
There’s more energy stored in the body as fat than any other energy source.  This is advantageous during warm-up and certain types of exercise, specifically aerobic.  Fat minimizes any negative impact the energy source can have on the horse’s attitude. 
Fat does not make a horse high, but it does give him consistency and stamina.  Fats
can have a positive impact on everything from inflammation to reproduction. High-fat
diets do not generate internal heat (caused by digestion) like fiber (carbohydrates)
and protein can. A high-fat diet can also decrease tying up or body soreness.

When adding a fat supplement to your horse’s diet, do so gradually over several days. Typically you see a difference with performance and health in 30 days on a high fat diet.
