BOX REST

 

Horses on extended periods of box rest due to injury or ill health require a diet suitable to nutritionally support the bodies repair process. It is also important for the horse to remain calm and even tempered during these convalescent periods.

 

Example Convalescent Diet

 

Maxisoy+
Lucerne and/or oaten chaff

Balancer pellet

Grass hay

- Controlled energy to maintain an even temperament

- Quality protein for muscle mass and strength to protect from injury

- Palatable feed to encourage eating whilst under stress

FULL WORK

 

Muscle development, strength and power need to be at their optimum. The horses tendons, ligaments and bones need to be at their strongest. Mentally and physically horses in full work are stretched to their limits so feeding to reduce these stresses and enhance performance is necessary for best long term results.

- 25 to 35% more digestible then chaffs and hays

- Quality protein provision in comparison to hays and chaff

- Feed wet to assist hydration and consumption of supplements
