Horse feed to keep your horse happy & healthy 🐮

Adding oil on top of your horse’s current feed can be an easy and cost-effective solution, particularly if feeding small amounts. In larger quantities, oil from a bottle can be a useful way of providing additional calories without increasing meal size. Any type of vegetable oil is suitable and you can adjust the quantity fed to meet the specific needs of the horse.

On the flip side, a high oil feed may be more palatable option and also a more convenient way of providing a balanced diet. For example, đ—Šđ—Łđ—œđ—Ÿđ—Ÿđ—˜đ—„đ—Š 𝗹đ—č𝗰𝗼 đ—™đ—¶đ—Żđ—żđ—Č provides 90ml of oil per 1kg and is high calorie, high fibre feed which is also complete with added vitamins and minerals.

The difference in cost between adding larger amounts of oil and switching to a higher oil feed may also be negligible.

Regardless of whether you choose a high oil feed or oil from a bottle, regular monitoring of the horse’s body condition, weight, and overall health is essential. Adjustments may need to be made based on the horse’s activity level, age, and specific dietary goals.
Not all horses prone to gastric ulcers are underweight or poor doers. Balancers are ideal for horses and ponies that maintain weight easily on forage alone, providing a concentrated source of vitamins, minerals and amino acids, while contributing a negligible level of energy (calories) to the total diet.

The horse’s stomach (which is about the size of a rugby ball) can broadly be divided into two sections; the upper non-glandular (or squamous) region where food enters the stomach, and the lower glandular region where stomach (hydrochloric) acid is produced. Although the lower region is constantly exposed to acid, it generally has adequate protection and ulcers are most commonly found in the upper region.

Having evolved to spend around 16-18 hours per day foraging, the horse’s stomach is constantly producing stomach acid to digest food, even when the horse is not eating. A combination of prolonged periods of stabling with little or no forage and exercise can results in gastric acid ‘splashing’ onto the upper region of the stomach.

Saliva provides a natural buffer to stomach acid but unlike people, horses only produce saliva when they chew. Feeding short chopped fibre helps to extend eating time which in turn encourages saliva production and increases the horse’s ability to buffer damaging stomach acid. Chaff also forms a protective 'fibre mat' on top of the stomach contents, thus helping to prevent strong stomach acid splashing up onto the non-protected (squamous) region of the stomach where it can increase the risk of ulcers forming.

Ideally choose a fibre containing alfalfa as the high protein and calcium content is thought to further help buffer stomach acid. đ‘șđ‘·đ‘°đ‘łđ‘łđ‘Źđ‘čđ‘șℱ 𝑹𝒍𝒇𝒂𝒍𝒇𝒂-đ‘·đ’“đ’ 𝑭𝒊𝒃𝒓𝒆 makes a great choice and has the added reassurance of the BETAÂź EGUS approval mark.

It’s no wonder đ‘șđ‘·đ‘°đ‘łđ‘łđ‘Źđ‘čđ‘șℱ đ‘Żđ‘šđ‘·đ‘·đ’€ đ‘Żđ‘¶đ‘¶đ‘­â„ą 𝑮𝒐𝒍𝒂𝒔𝒔𝒆𝒔 𝑭𝒓𝒆𝒆 is one of the nation’s favourite high fibre feeds!

A high fibre diet is essential for maintaining digestive health. The low-calorie blend of fibres in đ‘Żđ‘šđ‘·đ‘·đ’€ đ‘Żđ‘¶đ‘¶đ‘­â„ą 𝑮𝒐𝒍𝒂𝒔𝒔𝒆𝒔 𝑭𝒓𝒆𝒆 is ideal for natives, good doers and those in light work.

đ‘Żđ‘šđ‘·đ‘·đ’€ đ‘Żđ‘¶đ‘¶đ‘­â„ą 𝑮𝒐𝒍𝒂𝒔𝒔𝒆𝒔 𝑭𝒓𝒆𝒆 includes a blend of chopped straw and alfalfa to help extend eating time. Increasing the time your horse/ pony spends chewing can help to support their digestive health and mental well-being. Saliva, which is only produced when the horse chews, provides a natural buffer to stomach acid. Having evolved to spend 16-18 hours per day foraging, horses have a psychological need to chew which means feeding short chopped fibre may be of added benefit to horses on restricted rations of forage.

đ‘Żđ‘šđ‘·đ‘·đ’€ đ‘Żđ‘¶đ‘¶đ‘­â„ą 𝑮𝒐𝒍𝒂𝒔𝒔𝒆𝒔 𝑭𝒓𝒆𝒆 is low in starch (1.5%) and sugar (1.25%) making it suitable for horses and ponies prone to laminitis (including those with PPID & EMS) and excitability. While not all horses are prone to laminitis, a high fibre, low starch diet is the gold standard for supporting digestive health.

However, to meet your horse or pony’s daily vitamin and mineral requirements (when fed alongside forage) it needs to be fed at the recommended amount of approximately 600g per 100kg of bodyweight per day e.g., 1.5kg per day for a 250kg pony and 3kg per day for a 500kg horse.
