Veteran Feeds Launched
VETERAN RANGE AVAILABLE FROM JANUARY 1ST 2017
As horses get older, they often need a little extra help to maintain their condition and topline. It’s worth remembering that it’s not just horses that are in regular active work which are likely to need additional nutritional help as the years advance. All older horses can benefit.
Getting the feed balance just right in a veteran requires an innate understanding of the changing nutritional needs of the older equine. It is important to feed a diet that is high in fibre and low in starch. Sounds complicated? Well don’t worry, The Pure Feed Company has launched its own dedicated range of quality feeds for Veterans that does all that hard work for you.
Available in a mix or pellet format, the Pure Veteran range combines a high specification balancer with easily digestible fibre and quality oils to provide a slow release energy source. There is no added sugar, molasses or wholegrain cereals ensuring the older horse receives all the nutritional support it needs, without the fizz. Incorporated in the feeds are essential amino acids to provide the necessary building blocks for developing and retaining topline and muscle. In addition high spec pre and probiotics are also included to help keep the hind gut functioning just as nature intended.
Pure Veteran’s low starch appeal ensures it is well placed to meet the nutritional requirements of the older horse suffering from Cushing’s Disease and / or laminitis although it is not a suitable option for an overweight horse or pony.
The Pure Veteran Mix provides a super quick and easy feeding solution for veterans, simply dampen with water before feeding – the mix should be fed at 400g / per 100kg body weight per day.
Poor teeth can often cause feeding problems for the older horse so Pure Veteran Pellets have been developed specifically with this in mind. The pellets can be soaked two parts water to one-part feed to create a soft, palatable and appetizing mash. The pellets should be soaked for up to an hour (using hot water will speed up the process). Always remember to allow the mash to cool down before feeding. Feeding rate is as per the mix, 400g per 100g bodyweight per day.
