This ultra-low iron, summer horse feed balancer has been formulated for superior hoof and skin health, using our own unique analytical data from the thousands of forage samples that we test.
It contains only the commonly deficient minerals, vitamins and amino acids found to be needed to help develop optimum hoof and skin health, matched to grass, hay and haylage.
Our powdered balancers are under 1% in sugar and starch combined. Free from any fillers, additives, preservatives or bulking agents.
We only use the highest purity minerals and vitamins to produce the lowest iron formulation, minimising contamination from heavy metals and ensuring maximum absorption rates.
How to feed the balancer?
All Forageplus Balancers are best carried in a high fibre, fast soak feed or chop of your choice.
If your horse is on reduced or restricted grazing, or a hay/haylage only diet, then opting for the winter version of this balancer would be best.
Under 1% in sugar & starch combined. Free from any fillers, bulking agents or preservatives. We only use the highest quality minerals to ensure against contamination with heavy metals, enabling high absorption rates. We use ultra-low iron forms of monosodium phosphate and magnesium oxide in our balancers.
Oil 5.80%, Protein 17.35% and DE 6.70 MJ/kg (please note these are Kg amounts)
|Ingredient||Quantity per 100g|
|Magnesium Oxide (low-iron)||12g|
|Phosphorous (low-iron monosodium phosphate)||5g|
|Iodine (calcium iodate)||2mg|
|Vitamin B1 (thiamine)||100mg|
|Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine)||100mg|
The above analysis for 100 grams is equivalent to elemental values fed. The volume feed rate (100 grams) is not the same as the elemental feed rate values (above). Therefore the above figures will not equal 100 grams.
“Our forage analysis showed us that this balancer would match our forage mineral deficiencies, perfectly. My horse is bouncing with healthy hooves. My vet and farrier are astounded.”— Carol Bent, Gloucestershire
