How To Get The Most Out Of Feeding With Dengie Hi-Fi Original

Hi-Fi Original can be fed as the sole energy source: just add a broad-spectrum vitamin and mineral supplement or balancer.

Hi-Fi Original can also be fed as a partial hay replacer. The average section of hay weighs around 2kgs which can be replaced with 2kgs of Hi-Fi Original. As Hi-Fi Original is a short ‘chop’ it takes as long to eat as the equivalent weight of hay or haylage and so helps to keep horses occupied and satisfied. Unlike hay and haylage which can vary in nutritional content from batch to batch, Hi-Fi Original provides consistent nutrition.

Respiratory Care

The alfalfa in Hi-Fi Original is dried at a very high temperature which reduces mould. Extraction processes are used to reduce the dust content.

How Hard Are You Working Your Horse?

The amount and kind of work your horse or pony is doing is an important factor when calculating the quantity and type of feed to give. Try to use a fibre based diet to promote a healthy digestive system and only use cereal based feeds if absolutely necessary.

Work load Example
Convalescence/Resting Horses on box rest, or turned away.
Light work Maximum of 1 hour per day hacking, mostly at walk with some trotting and cantering, or 30 minutes of schooling, mostly at the trot with some canter.
Medium work Schooling, dressage, show-jumping, novice or intermediate 1 day eventing or hunting 1 day per week.
Hard Work Advanced one day events. 3 day events, hunting 2 days per week, polo and all forms of racing.

Using Fibre to Reduce Reactivity

Dengie customer Carol Bardwell contacted our nutrition team because she was having problems with her horse Charlie. Charlie was a little overweight and his behaviour could be unpredictable. He’d be quiet one minute and then lively the next.
