Heald Town Highland Pony Stud

Carolyn Ashcroft, Cheshire

We are very keen to promote natural feeding of our native Highlands as they are not built to cope with rich high sugar diets that you see in many other feeds. We also needed a straightforward and economical diet that could be used for our mares, stallions, foals and youngstock that would promote muscle development and bone growth without adding excess fat or fizz. With Simple System we have found exactly that.

All, including our highly successful show ponies (such as Glen, pictured), have the same diet of Sainfoin Pellets,Lucie Nuts, Red Bag Grass Pellets and Instant Linseed. We also use Salt Lick Tub's year-round and find Simple System Brix very useful for placing out in the field when grazing is short in the cooler months and for occupying the ponies when they are indoors for grooming, vet checks and farrier visits.

We wouldn't feed anything else!
