Coming up at Woodhill Sands....

 The horses get a week off with the mud runners soon to descend upon Woodhill Sands with Event Promotions Loaded Tough Guy and Gal Challenge.  This is some real dirty fun.  Mud, eels and a whole lot of laughs.   Great to spectate to so if your not sure its your cup of tea to do, come over for a look!

Prydes Easi Feed Tip of the Month
Prydes logo-920

Protein QUALITY is critical for topline, recovery after events, coat and hooves. Without TOP QUALITY protein in the diet there can be problems in any one of these areas.  Make sure when buying hard feed/premixed feed that the bag includes top quality protein sources e.g. ingredients such as Extruded Full Fat Soybean, Faba Beans, and Lupins etc. Sometimes the feed will show a high protein percent but the protein quality is poorly digestible or less desirable e.g. peas and poorly described protein meals or byproducts.  Protein quality in the feed is particularly important when grass levels are low or grass is of poor quality as good grass is where a lot of protein in the diet comes from.   Fibre sources such as Fiber Fresh products also help provide good quality protein alongside your good quality hard feed in the bucket.
