FABBY

Multi-Action Digestive Supplement for Horses

Kohnke’s Own FABBY is formulated using the latest scientific knowledge in probiotic and prebiotic research to help optimise the digestive efficiency of the hindgut (large intestine) in all horses.  The highly concentrated probiotics, multiple premium prebiotics and other hindgut activating nutrients comprise a unique and powerful formulation that is suitable for horses of all ages and dietary intakes.

The Premium Probiotic and Prebiotic Supplement with Hindgut Activators

FABBY is an acronym for the many benefical active ingredients which naturally help your horse’s gut microbiota!

FABBY:  Multi-Action Hindgut Targeted Digestive Supplement

Probiotics

The probiotics in FABBY include highly researched and equine-targeted live yeasts plus bacteria including Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium strains.  These probiotics are highly concentrated (18 Billion CFU per maintenance dose) and actively reduce hindgut acidosis without artificial buffers.  Acid imbalance in the hindgut can cause serious problems, including acidic build up, hindgut ulcers or ‘cow-pat’ manure.  FABBY protects against negative effects of hindgut starch overload in horses consuming high starch diets.  The live yeasts in FABBY are also proven to boost digestion of fibre sources for improved condition in ‘hard keeper’ or ‘poor-doer’ horses.   

Prebiotics

FABBY includes multiple prebiotics to help feed ‘good bacteria’ populations to positively influence the hindgut microbiota.  These prebiotics have been proven to help adapt to new diets, especially after sudden feed changes and improve conversion of feed to energy in horses with inefficient digestive function.

Active Yeast Components

Active Yeast Components are specially purified parts of the yeast cell, including MOS (mannan oligosaccharides), B-glucans and nucleotides which are designed to block attachment of infectious ‘bad’ bacteria and the action of pathogens in the hindgut. The purified nucleotides in FABBY benefit digestive function and regenerate the gastro-intestinal lining.  The combination of these Active Yeast Components may reduce scouring or loose manure in horses with poor hindgut microbiota balance.

Functional Fibres

The functional fibres in FABBY are a special blend of digestible and indigestible fibres which are designed to stimulate important areas of the gastro-intestinal tract for improved function, helping to regulate food passage through the digestive system.  Optimising the working of the hindgut is an important process in healthy manure production and general good digestion.  

Mycotoxin Binders

The mycotoxin binders in FABBY constitute a broad-spectrum approach using multiple types to counter a wider range of mycotoxins, but are specially selected to not absorb or bind other feed nutrients, such as vitamins.  FABBY is formulated to help horses exposed to feed ingested mycotoxins (up to a moderate level) and reduce risk of digestive upsets or problems in horses with feed sensitivities.

Specific Amino Acids including L-Glutamine

Specific amino acids such as L-glutamine are particularly included as it helps to regulate passage of manure through the gastro-intestinal tract and also feeds the cells lining the digestive system with energy to optimise digestive activity and maintain normal barrier function.  The combination of ingredients in FABBY are uniquely designed to help the entire hindgut and its contents.

 

Proven Results from Extensive Research

FABBY has been research tested for over 3 years in field trials with over 100 Aussie horses.  Trial owners reported their horses particularly benefited from optimised hindgut function, reduced loose manure or scouring issues, better utilisation of feed to maintain condition, plus visibly improved general health and vitality, even in situations of stress, change in feed or hay, lack of pasture, age, infirmity or high grain/starch diets.

Available  1 kg (33 days supply), 3.5 kg (116 days supply) and 10 kg (333 days supply)

Testimonials:

 

“My thoroughbred was having issues processing his feed and keeping weight on. When we placed him on FABBY, his ability to digest food and maintain weight greatly improved. He loves the taste of FABBY and never leaves his bucket empty. I also find FABBY very economical as you only have to feed a very small amount per day, making the bucket it comes in go a long way. As a horse owner, FABBY has given me the peace of mind that my horse is getting the best supplement to sustain my horse’s digestive system, his health and daily well-being. I would recommend this product to anyone looking for a super supplement that aids their horse’s digestion and weight.”   Petra M, ACT.

“We have been using FABBY on our 24 year old retired dressage horse for 12 months. We are in the severely drought affected region of the upper hunter in NSW and have been fully handfeeding our horses for 18 months now, we find that the older horses struggle to maintain their weight and topline as they age especially when there is no grass to eat. Since FABBY has been added to Freddie’s diet, he is maintaining his condition more easily and looking fabulous. We have since added FABBY to the diet of all of our horses as the fact that they have no grazing concerns me and FABBY gives me the peace of mind that they are receiving important beneficial bacteria to maintain healthy gut microbiota. I am thrilled with the condition of all of the horses who are shiny, healthy and maintaining their condition extremely well in harsh conditions.”  Sian R, NSW 

“Koda has always been a little sensitive with his gut, and would develop diarrhoea with any small change. On the last occasion he had been on 2 courses of penicillin and had developed scours.  The scours became so severe that he had no form to his manure and was squirting pure rancid liquid up to a distance of over a metre. I would wash his legs and tail up to 4 times a day for a couple of months and kept his tail plaited. Even with this, he developed burning on the skin down his backside and legs. This resulted in him developing sores on the skin and inflammation in his hind hocks and fetlocks. He also dropped a significant amount of weight and had muscle atrophy, along with being drawn in his flanks. He was a very unwell horse and was under veterinary care.  I tried a number of other products with only limited success.  I contacted Kohnke’s Own and was fortunate enough for him to take part in the FABBY trial.  He started on one scoop morning and night and built up to 1 1/2 scoops morning and night. We noticed a change within a few days, and within a week, he had almost formed manure. This was the first time in months, and he started to look less hang dog and brighter in the eyes. He also started to gain weight and muscle back. His coat started to grow back and developed shine to it, his hooves were healthy and he had some bounce in his step again.  I have reduced his dose gradually and he is now on 1/2 scoop once a day and maintaining formed manure and good health.  Nothing else we tried had worked, FABBY has been a saviour for Koda. I cannot recommend FABBY enough and will continue to use and it recommend this supplement to my horsey friends.”  Chelisa T, SA

“I first spoke with the team from Kohnke’s Own last year about my pony Jack’s manure problem – he was never really scouring, but he was a bit messy and would dribble, especially on grains, certain hays or spring grass.  Within a couple of weeks with FABBY he started to improve with firmer manure and less dribble.  He is now fully normal and has consistently good manure, even with the new Spring grass.  Jack also used to get tummy aches, especially at competitions.  Now he much happier and doesn’t kick up or show symptoms of gut pain, even when competing often.”  Kirsty P, VIC
