This Forage FocusedTM equine balancer has been formulated for superior supplementation for lactating mares, 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 support a nursing mare and maintain optimum healthy growth of foals.

All ForageplusTM Balancers are very low in sugar and starch; contain no fillers and only the highest purity commonly deficient minerals, vitamins and amino acids found to be needed to help support health.  The minerals used are of a high quality to ensure against contamination with heavy metals and enable good absorption rates.

ForageplusTM recommends the use of ad lib forage including the straights; alfalfa, beet pulp, wheat bran, rice bran and or copra with this supplement. The feeding of these straights will compliment both the balancer and the general profile of forage in the UK and Europe, whilst adding useful additional minerals and protein to support the healthy growth of young horses and the maintenance of a lactating mare.

In winter (October – April) or if your mare is on a reduced grass or hay/haylage only diet then you will need to add omega 3 fat.  For best results, feed 42 grams per 220 kg of body weight of micronised linseed to provide correct levels of essential omega 3 fat. Omega 3 fat is not contained in winter grass and is destroyed during the hay/haylage curing process.

Please note that to be completely sure that your lactating mare is receiving optimum levels of protein and minerals, Forageplus advises both a nutritional and a mineral analysis of the forage being fed so we can check levels for you and optimise your horse’s diet and health even further.

Forageplus Lactating Mare Balancer matches nutrients to the forage consumed by a horse. Supplying correct levels of nutrients in forage, as matched to ratios determined by the National Research Council, is an extemely important consideration when maintaining and supporting:

healthy growth of young bones and joints
healthy structurally sound, crack and brittle free, robust hooves with a strong laminae connection
healthy frogs and skin
vibrant, shiny coat colour
robust tendons, ligaments and joints
a strong immune system
healthy muscles
