As temperatures drop

24 November 2020

As the temperature drops our horses may need a little more help to keep their condition. This has been a regular theme on the Feed Line recently and for those horses who need a little bit extra we recommend TopGain. TopGain is great for adding in those extra concentrated calories without having to use huge amounts of feed and will not hot your horse up, which is always an added bonus! Just one bag may be all you need to ensure your horse is topped up as we go into the winter.

TopGain is £24.50 for a 20kg bag and is fed at 100g per 100kg of body weight but this can be given up to triple this amount if it is needed. So an average 500kg horse can have between 500g and 1.5kg per day. TopGain has low levels of sugar & starch and is suitable for all horses. Read more

Going through Autumn and in to Winter

28 October 2020

Most horses have good access to grazing over the summer. Native types make the most of this and are capable of eating double what they actually need! When the grass goes off or horses have less time at grass or even are off grass completely, it can be a bit of a shock to realise how much extra forage they need to keep healthy, especially if they are older and their teeth can cope with grass, but fail to do a sufficient task when it comes to eating hay.

We then need to provide an easy to eat alternative to hay, which is HayCare. In the feed bowl, we can stick with the forage theme, but higher nutrition LucieNuts. Read more

Why soak forage pellets?

22 October 2020

Back in the day, we were told that all feeds should be well dampened with water. Then along came muesli mixes with molasses and oil coatings, promoted as ready to feed, and we all got out of the habit of watering feeds. Right from the start however, when pelleted compound feeds were introduced in the 1960s, it was acknowledged that these feeds carried a slightly increased risk of choke. Horses choke on their feed due usually to not chewing it sufficiently, and it gets stuck in the oesophagus, causing distress and spasms in the neck muscles. With massage and walking, this can clear in under half an hour Ė if not, it is a task for the vet to sort out. There are many reasons why horses donít chew properly Ė dental issues are right up there, along with greed. Read more
