Ulcers in horses can be triggered, or exacerbated by, stress, travelling, long periods without food, insufficient forage, cereals and straw, for instance.
Premium 6mm organic lucerne pellets, naturally high in calcium & protein to support muscles & bones.
100% pure and free from all binders. Any pelleted feed carries a risk of choke we strongly recommend soaking pelleted feeds until free from lumps.
As with any new feed, introduce gradually over a week.
Lucie Pellets are ideally fed soaked.
Alternatively, mix with soaked PuraBeet or a Simple System chop
and dampen well.
For foals, greedy, elderly or dentally challenged horses,
Lucie Pellets should be soaked.
Use 2-2.5 times their volume of water.
Feed according to requirement & condition.
Start with 100g per 100kg of bodyweight per day, increase as required up to a maximum of 5kg per day. For example, for a 500kg horse start with 500g per day (dry weight, before soaking) and increase as required.
A level Stubbs bowl scoop = 1.6kg (dry weight) approximately
We do not add vitamins as the forages themselves have them naturally occurring, often in their precursor form, so the packaging of each forage product details average vitamin & mineral figures produced by the British Association of Green Crop Driers to give an indication of the levels found within Lucerne or Grass. However, Simple System undertakes mineral analysis every two years or when/if the source of the product is changed. Below are the most up to date figures specific to this product.
I've owned Remy for 11yrs years and have always fed him Simple System Horse Feeds. We've successfully worked our way up through the levels from Prelim to Medium and have just started competing at Advanced Medium.
He has always been barefoot & has received many compliments over the years for his good feet & shiny coat - all thanks to Simple Systems feeds & balancers.Mrs Cheryl Tuff
