Arden Hills, Minnesota -- Textured feeds, like the Purina Omolene line, provide wholesome nutrition horse owners love to see. What happens when you take a horse feed legend and make it even better? It becomes legendary.

The time-tested Purina Omolene horse feed lineup now contains Outlast Gastric Support Supplement. This addition to the Omolene feed line provides gastric support in every meal - something most horses can benefit from.

"Research shows up to 90% of active horses are at risk for experiencing gastric discomfort," says Anna Pesta, Ph.D. and equine nutritionist for Purina Animal Nutrition. "Adding the Outlast supplement to Omolene horse feeds was a logical decision because it allowed us to provide the benefit of daily support of proper gastric pH to a wider variety of horses.

Omolene feeds provide fuel for performance in any horse, from active pleasure to top equine athletes. This lineup of textured feeds also works well for horses that are picky eaters or who don't eat pelleted feed, horses needing to gain weight, racehorses and horses with high caloric demands.

Building on the legacy of Omolene horse feed

Purina Animal Nutrition is marking an exciting milestone: 125 years in business. It all started with an innovative spirit and a belief nutrition could foster excellence in animals, and the families that care for them.

"We challenge convention every day in our work," says Pesta. "Our team looks forward to sharing new products, and sometimes updating products, when there's opportunity to fuel greatness. This milestone year is the perfect time to revitalize our oldest horse feed line, Omolene feed."

Omolene feed offers wholesome nutrition that performs, now with the added convenience of gastric support in every bite. It contains simple ingredients horse owners can see.
