  • Level of intake will vary depending on level of activity, desired body condition, season and quantity and quality of available forage.
  • Cool Command Balancer 30 can be top-dressed on Summit Maintenance at the rate of 0.5 to 2 pounds per head per day, depending upon weight, age and activity.

Management Tips

  • Worm at least 4 times each year.
  • Trim horse’s feet frequently.
  • Keep your horse’s teeth floated.
  • A physical examination should be performed annually on all horses by your veterinarian.
