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.

How to get the most from Dengie Hi-Fi Molasses Free

Hi-Fi Molasses Free is a straight feed and although alfalfa is abundant in natural nutrients a source of broad-spectrum vitamins and minerals should be added alongside to ensure a balanced diet such as Leisure Vits & Mins or Leisure Balancer. Hi-Fi Molasses Free may be fed dry or dampened with water, or a soaked product such as Dengie Alfa-Beet. To use Hi-Fi Molasses Free as a partial forage replacement, replace your forage on a weight for weight basis up to 1kg per 100kgs bodyweight of the total forage fed.

Eleanor’s vet warned her that Izzy would be at high risk of developing laminitis if her weight wasn’t brought back under control.

A tasty low starch and sugar feed for a hot headed, good doer!

When tasting the different chaffs, Luca was very keen on what was revealed to be Dengie’s Hi-Fi Molasses Free. Although Luca is not actually laminitic, he is a good doer and also very hot headed, so his owner tries to keep sugar levels to a minimum to avoid weight gain and excess energy.
