Feeding Guide

 

The following chart will assist you in choosing the correct feed for your horse; if there is not a suitable Horseheath product a cost-effective alternative will be suggested.

 

Base Feed:
Green leafy material - primarily grass as grazing, hay or haylage. Horses all need to eat at very least 1.5% of their bodyweight as dry fibre to maintain healthy gut function & in practice will eat 2- 4%.
Your horse fit & well & performing satisfactorily?
No need for extra feed -  save your money & stop it getting too fat!
Your Horse Overweight?
See advice in Nutrition Problems section.
Your horse resting/in light work: just needs a top-up ?
Feed a long-fibre product e.g. chopped straw, grass or alfalfa chaff or similar, to encourage chewing. Add  low-energy high fibre nuts or  balancer or mineral & vitamin supplement  e.g.Hors-E-Vit™ or coarse mix e.g. Horseheath AntiLam™ Most horses in normal condition can tolerate some sugar in their diet; ponies less so. If too fat it should be avoided as far  as possible.
Your horse in medium/heavy work?
Feed products with a higher nutrient density e.g. Horseheath  BodyBuilda™ and/or Acceler>8™,  or Eas-E balancer™ or Competition Mix.

Your horse doing speed work?
e.g. S/J, Fast Driving, Racing, Polo etc… Competition Mix or BodyBuilda™ as base feed plus Acceler>8™, LinGold™, Cod liver oil, Cooked Linseed, Full-Fat Soya, rolled oats, Hors-E-Vit™, electrolytes, as required.
Your horse underweight & thin?
See Condition and Weight Loss.
