Total Eclipse - Horse Feed of the Month June 2012
Total Eclipse has been popular with our customers for many years and with good reason. With a welcome , but probably temporary, return to more seasonal weather this month, we can look forward to long days, long rides and plenty of activity on the horse front. A balancer is a good idea to ensure your horse has all he needs and Total Eclipse is the only one specifically designed for horses on forage diets and for those for whom you wish to avoid all cereals, by products, molasses, soya and animal remains. With the highest levels of omega 3 from full fat linseed, it has a natural anti-inflammatory effect which is very helpful for all horses as the work load increases or the effects of hard ground are felt. Seaweed provides a natural source of minerals, trace elements and a top up of electrolytes needed in hard work. Yeast products help the balance of microbes in the gut and may address issues of anxiety. So all in all, Total Eclipse really does tick the boxes!
With rising costs ever a problem, you will be delighted to know that this works out very economically as you only need to use a small amount – we use no filler, binders or bulkers in our feeds – it is all proper nutrition. A 5 kg pack is £22.50 and lasts an average 500kg horse nearly 6 weeks. Get the 15 kg economy pack at £52.50 and it will last 4 months! Use 25 g per day per 100kg of horse, so for instance a large Native at or an Arab at 400 kg will need just 100g per day. A 600kg Warmblood will need 150g per day which is 1 mugful.
Total Eclipse is suitable for all equines including those with metabolic issues, tying up, sensitive skin and so on. It will keep the skin supple, the coat smooth and glossy and help keep hooves in good order. It is non-heating and naturally very low in soluble carbohydrates.
