Prydes EasiFeed tip of the Month - Holding Conditon
We are heading into the business end of the season and the challenge for many is to hold condition and topline.
Battling to hold condition?
Make sure horse has a balanced workload (hacking out included)
Plenty of good quality fibre in diet (this can be 2-3 slices of hay or haylage per day if grass is short, plus your Fibre Fresh in the bucket) Make sure the hard feeds you are feeding are calorie dense and extruded. This includes feeds like Pryde’s EasiResponse and EasiResult. Top quality feeds like this mean that what is going into your horse is actually being well utilised and therefore better at putting on weight than lesser processed feeds. Look at the feed rates on the bag. Feed more of the calorie dense feeds if required.
Weigh your feed in the dipper as all feeds weigh a different amount. Not all dippers and feeds are 1kg! Remember when you hit the minimum rates on the bag, your horse is getting all the vits and mins too in the complete feeds
Make sure you have good condition first. Topline comes after condition Make sure there is top quality protein in diet (Fibre Fresh, quality hay, good grass, extruded soy in feed. Avoid poor quality protein ingredients like peas etc. Try Pryde’s Rebuild as an add-in (read instructions). This will help if doing all the above and want faster progress.
For any questions, contact your Pryde’s EasiFeed nutritionist and North island rep: Hayley-Jane Malcolmson on 027 247 6881 or firstname.lastname@example.org
