HYGAIN EQUINE SENIOR has been formulated for the mature horse/pony (6 yo +) and those in their senior years.
HYGAIN EQUINE SENIOR contains carefully blended ingredients that cater for the increased nutritional demands of the older horse when in work, at rest or enjoying retirement. Research has shown older horses require higher levels of nutrients to maintain condition and general well-being as efficiency of the digestive tract decreases with age.
Horses on average will 1% of their body weight as quality roughage per day. Care should be taken to match feed intake to age, breed, appetite, exercise, desired body condition, pasture/hay quality and availability and climate.
Reduce the intake of HYGAIN EQUINE SENIOR if horses gain weight and/or exercise regime is interrupted, on rest days and when pasture quality and availability is in excess of dietary requirements. If your horse/pony endures heavy sweat loss additional supplementation with an electrolyte such as HYGAIN REGAIN is recommended.
HYGAIN EQUINE SENIOR is a balanced feed and as such the addition of other grains and supplements only serves to dilute the nutritional integrity of the feed.
- Introduce HYGAIN EQUINE SENIOR to your horse’s diet gradually over a 7-14 day period.
- Feed by weight and not by volume.
- Feed a minimum of 1% of your horse’s body weight daily as roughage.
- Horses have a small stomach, so feed little and often.
- Ensure horses have access to clean water.
