Olewo Daily Carrots for Horses is a premium product made in Germany from 100% fresh, non-GMO carrots, without additives, and preserved naturally through dehydration.
Carrots are one of the most widely consumed and enjoyed vegetables in the world, not only because of their sweet taste, but for their many medicinal and health benefits.
Carrots for Horses – More than just a Treat!
Carrots have long been fed to horses, but typically just as a treat. More than 40 years ago the Olewo company in Germany discovered that carrots can provide the same amazing health benefits to horses as to humans when fed in the proper form. They started producing the first dehydrated carrot chips for horses.
Like all root vegetables, carrots start loosing their nutrients and valuable beta-carotene the moment they come out of the ground and are exposed to light, air, and moisture. Not knowing when the fresh carrots we buy were harvested, they may not be all that nutritious afterall. At Olewo, the carrots are monitored while growing and are harvested when the nutrient levels are at their peak. The carrots go to preparation immediately after harvest to avoid the loss of nutrients.
In addition, Olewo Carrots are more nutritious to begin with. While many of our soils are depleted of nutrients and trace minerals due to modern intensive agricultural methods, Northern Germany still has some of the most fertile soils and produce far more nutritious vegetables compared to vegetables that are grown anywhere else.
These super nutritious carrots are in the proper form that is easily digestible for horses so they can absorb, assimilate, and utilize the amazing nutrition from this vegetable to benefit their health - that is the Olewo difference!
Forget about feeding fresh carrots with diminished nutrient content as a treat. Your horse can possibly even choke on the carrot if it is not cut into smaller pieces and fed properly. Olewo Carrots are safe to feed and are loaded with nutrition. Only a small amount is required daily - literally just one handful for an adult horse! And this handful of Olewo Carrots a day contains a wealth of valuable nutrition and healing power that can dramatically change the health of your horse.
Correct and balanced nutrition is a critical component of proper horse care. Horses are more prone to deficiencies since they often have very limited and low quality food sources which do not contain enough of the vitamins and minerals they need for optimal health and to prevent disease. In addition, there are stages in life and conditions that require increased nutrition. For example, breeding mares, foals and young growing horses, as well as aging horses; or when the horse is under stress from traveling, showing, racing; or when recovering from illness or surgery.
While the majority of the supplements offered for horses are synthetic, with Olewo Carrots your horse will get the vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and other healthy nutrients naturally from a whole food source.
Carrots are one of the highest contributors of beta carotene (precursor to vitamin A), the powerhouse vitamin that can provide so many benefits for your horse’s body and health. They contain excellent amounts of vitamin B group factors, vitamins C, D, E, and other nutrients such as calcium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium and more. Carrots are nutrient dense, provide soluable and insoluable fiber, and have health-protective phytonutrients which are ONLY found in vegetable material.

The # 1 Benefit and Reason Why Every Horse
Should Receive Olewo Carrots Daily
Promotes Gut Health
A horse with a healthy gut is a healthy horse!
All disease starts in the gut. ~ Hippocrates
An understanding of the association between feed and the gut for increased immunity and overall health is gaining momentum even in the equine world, as is the role in preventing disease through the promotion of a gut-healthy diet.
Gut health literally affects your horse’s entire body. You might not attribute digestive problems to allergies, joint pain, laminitis, thyroid problems, autoimmune diseases, and even cancer, but many diseases seemingly unrelated are actually caused by gut problems.
Your horse can develop Leaky Gut Syndrome, which is defined as a perforated hind gut, a condition where the lining of the gut becomes inflamed and more permeable (porous) than normal. The gut becomes leaky in the sense that undigested food particles, bacteria, fungi, parasites and toxins, normally not absorbed into the bloodstream in the healthy state, pass through a damaged, porous or “leaky” gut and wreak havoc on the horse’s body and health. Some of the primary contributors to leaky gut in horses include poor diet, toxins, stress, vaccines and medications; specifically antibiotics, non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs) and steroidal drugs.
The leaky gut syndrome opens the door to many equine diseases including laminitis, arthritis, cushing’s disease, colitis, inflammatory bowel disease, irritable bowel syndrome, celiac disease, liver disease, and more. Most often these conditions manifest in the horse as recurrent colic, chronic weight loss and chronic diarrhea. Stopping and reversing these conditions depends on healing the lining of the gastrointestinal tract. Any other treatment is just symptom suppression.
Olewo Carrots promote gut health and can help prevent leaky gut. If the digestive system is already compromised, Olewo Carrots can help heal the gut lining by reducing inflammation in the gut, soothing the irritated digestive tract and calming it in order to allow healing to occur.

Young & Growing Horses
The average horse has the greatest potential for growth at a very young age and if proper nutrition is not available, optimum growth will not be achieved. OLEWO Carrots help promote bone & tissue growth and are rich in vitamins and minerals to strengthen the important immune system of a young horse.
The naturally occurring ingredients in OLEWO Carrots are very effective against diarrhea in horses. After just 2 days of feeding OLEWO Carrots the intestine lining is calmed, resulting in a quick cure from diarrhea. A quick cure is especially important for young horses because diarrhea inhibits their development.
Especially when horses are experiencing stress during transporting, training, competition, stall confinemant, or a painful injury, OLEWO Carrots provide concentrated nutrition during these high energy situations and help prevent diarrhea.
Horse Digestive Health
Diet and stress are at the root of digestive problems. Horses are designed to eat a high fiber diet. When added to their daily feed, OLEWO Carrots help maintain good digestive health. The high amounts of beta-carotene (a precursor to vitamin A) in OLEWO Carrots play a significant role in the rebuilding and health of the lining inside the horses' intestine. An inflammation of the intestinal lining is often caused by irritating ingredients in horse feed, or simply by eating to much grain. Even the high sugar content in lush pasture grass can be disruptive to the horse's digestive system.
Horse Stomach Ulcers
The main cause of stomach ulcers is excess acid in the stomach of horses that are not kept in a natural grazing situation. The acid can eat through the stomach's protective lining and lead to ulcers. OLEWO Carrots help maintain the health of this protective lining (see Horse Digestive Health), which in turn can help relieve and prevent stomach ulcers in horses.
There are many different conditions that can cause colic (abdominal pain) in horses, but most involve the digestive system. OLEWO Carrots help maintain a healthy digestive system (see Horse Digestive Health), thus reducing the chances for equine colic.
Chemical worming products can upset the good gut bacteria and result in horse digestive upset. Carrots contain a volatile oil that kills worms and parasites, and the fiber helps move the waste out of the intestine. OLEWO Carrots act as an all-natural dewormer for horses when incorporated with the daily feed.
Dull Horse Coat and Dry Horse Skin
OLEWO Carrots are loaded with beta-carotene which converts to vitamin A upon ingestion, and vitamin A is essential for healthy skin and coat. OLEWO Carrots not only promote beautiful, healthy and shiny coat, but also enhance coat color, improve markings and pigmentations, and help relieve and prevent dry and itchy horse skin. From young horses to show winners, a healthy and shiny coat is the sign of optimum nutrition.
The high amounts of beta-carotene in OLEWO Carrots help avoid vitamin A deficiency which can lead to hypersensitivity of the flexor tendons and damage of the hoof horn. OLEWO Carrots also can help prevent laminitis by providing superior natural nutrition to help promote overall health. It is a common belief that laminitis is a hoof problem, but often it is a whole body issue which shows up in the hoof.
OLEWO Carrots provide the extra vitamins and nutrients necessary to support the declining immune and digestive systems of aging horses, and to reinforce and extend vitality and stamina.
OLEWO Carrot Chips can be mixed in with the daily feed or given separately in the following quantities:
1/8 to 1/4 cup Small breeds and young horses
1/4 to 1/2 cup Fully grown horses
1/2 to 3/4 cup Breeding mares and stallions
