Many tropical grasses (see below) contain high levels of calcium oxalate. Symptoms include:
This creates the appearance of calcium deficiency in affected horses but our research tells us that actually it is caused by a mis-regulation of calcium. This is corrected by supplementing with chelated calcium.
Dangerous grasses include buffel, setaria and kikuyu. Even alfalfa (lucerne) may be a problem when fed as a very large proportion of the diet.
Only feed BREAK FREETM 5 days a week.
Loading will take 1-2 months depending on the severity of the problem. A 1.8 kg (4lb) pack will supply enough for a 1,200 lb horse for a month of loading or about 14 weeks at maintenance.

It is our plan to manufacture RACEMAX, CCC and BREAK FREE in the USA as soon as we can. They will then be available in larger pack sizes. So try them now and then consider just how many horses on your yard could benefit!

This product has been a life saver for my mare. The very best product I have found to combat oxalate poisoning.
