This ultra-low iron, equine balancer has been formulated for superior hoof and skin health using data obtained from scientific analysis of our many samples of forage. It contains only the commonly deficient minerals, vitamins and amino acids found to be needed to help develop optimum hoof and skin health.
In addition, we have formulated our product so that it is the ultimate balancer covering all your horse’s other needs as long as he/she is on a forage-based diet and in maintenance, light or moderate work.
All Forageplus Balancers are powders, are very low in sugar and starch, contain no fillers and only the highest purity minerals and vitamins for the lowest iron formulation. The minerals used are of high quality to ensure against contamination with heavy metals and enable good absorption rates.
Forageplus Balancers can be carried in a high fibre, fast soak feed or chop of your choice. If your horse is on a reduced grass or hay/haylage only diet then Forageplus Winter Hoof & Skin Health Balancer is perfect as it contains high levels of vitamin E to maintain antioxidant processes to help neutralise against free radicals in the body. We add this to our full range of winter balancers.
Forageplus recommends the feeding of additional micronised linseed throughout the winter months or if a horse is on a predominantly hay/haylage diet. This will ensure good levels of the essential fat omega 3 to maintain and support excellent health.
“Can’t believe this product, the minerals, protein and vitamins in this product are top notch and have resulted in amazing changes to my horse’s hooves, stronger, great looking white line, a new angle, strong frogs and hoof wall. Best of all the itching my horse had which I just thought I had to deal with has gone, WOW thanks Forageplus for your forage focused approach, it makes such sense RESULT!” V.A. Bennett, Derbyshire
