How long before I will see a difference?

All horses are different and it depends on what condition your horse is in to begin with, however you should start to see a difference before the end of the first bag.

Importance of a high fibre diet for horses

Horses have evolved as grazing animals feeding for up to 16 hours plus a day.  They didn’t evolve to digest infrequent, large cereal-based meals which can bring about problems such as ulcers, colic, stereotypical behaviour, poor digestive health etc.  A high fibre/forage diet will always keep your horse happier from the inside out, and suit his digestive system much better.

A Fibregenix ration balancer supplement alongside forage or reduced levels of hard feed works beautifully, with the balancer providing a valuable top up of missing essential nutrients. Good-doers are more problematic as all too often they need a restricted diet, so they can end up deficient in several key areas of essential nutrients. This is where Lami Low-Cal brings its benefits.  You’ll be able to feed the recommended amount of Lami Low-Cal alongside a forage of lower nutritional value to ensure a balanced diet and healthy horse without encouraging weight gain.

Ultimately, the more fibre in the diet, the happier your horse’s  digestive system will be resulting in a happy, settled horse, which in turn means good performance.

How much Fibregenix should I feed my horse?

Whatever the bodyweight is, round up to the nearest 50g. So if you have a horse that weighs say 420kg, round it up so that he is being fed 450g per day.  This will ensure that he is getting the right amount of everything.  This is particularly important if the weight has been established using a weigh tape, as these can often underestimate bodyweight by several kg.

Can I split my horse’s daily allowance?

Absolutely! The smaller the feeds the better for the horse, so if your balancer can be split that’s great, but as it’s only a small amount anyway it is quite safe to feed it in one meal if absolutely necessary.
