Dr. Kellon,
Do you know any fiber that preferentially creates butyrate in the gut of rumens?
In humans kiwi pectin boosts
butyrate production and the bacteria that create it.
I can feel a bug difference in my joints when I eat kiwi.
Also green banana flour is good for humans as a resistant starch, I can't imagine green banana flour would be a resistant starch in a horse but if it is...
