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.
