Forage First pelleted, high fibre horse feed balancer is made with no fillers, no molasses, no cereals, no soya and no alfalfa. At last no more mixing of powders to feed the highest quality horse feed balancer with low iron and forage focused minerals and vitamins. This horse feed balancer contains under 10% combined sugar and starch content. It is safe to feed to native horses, good doer horses, ponies and donkeys prone to laminitis.
The current batch of Forage First is now a more open pellet which can be fed from your hand slowly or in a treat ball. If feeding from a bucket we advise that this product be fed damp, soaked for a short period of time or fed damp in a wet feed such as a fast soak fibre provider. Soak in two times the volume of water. Hot water will take less time but cold water will take around 2 hours of soak time if you wish the pellet to become a mash.
This ultra-low iron, pelleted horse feed balancer is formulated for superior health of skin, hooves, digestion and muscles. The formula uses data obtained from scientific analysis of many samples of forage. It contains only the commonly deficient nutrients as matched to both grass and hay and makes reference to daily levels and ratios of nutrients required for optimum all-round health.
