Winter Care and Nutrition for Your Horse

 

Products to help your horse through this winter

Cold weather, different feeding habit and increased stall time can have a big impact on your horse’s weight & health.  Due to the reduced nutritional level of grass in the winter, a vitamin and mineral supplement may need to be provided. 

Everyday Vitamins & Minerals

We suggest feeding Everyday Vitamins & Minerals from Equine America; it is a complete supplement for all horses, containing top quality vitamins, minerals, probiotics and trace elements. 


 

Ultimate Oil

 

In addition try feeding KM Elite Ultimate Oil for your horse’s general health and wellbeing all year round. Ultimate Oil is a blend of high quality oils providing more than 190 bioactive nutrients including healthy ratios of Omegas 3, 6, 9 and rare Omega 7 - nourishing the body with essential fatty acids, minerals, plant sterols, antioxidants, amino acids, anti-viral and antibacterial nutrients and vitamins including Vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, B12, B15, C, E, K. Ingredients include Cold Pressed Flaxseed Oil, Rice Bran Oil, Coconut Oil and Sea Buckthorn Oil. For technical information about our Ultimate Oil click here


Airways Xtra Powder

If your horse is spending more time stabled during the winter months you may find that they are experiencing low level respiratory discomfort or discharge from their nose as a result of being exposed to dust and spores in their bedding and/or hay. Airways Xtra Powder with its powerful aroma, opens the airways and eases breathing. The menthol and vapours will not only dilate the airways but soothe low level irritation and encourage deep breathing for the horse.


 

Naturally, horses will graze for 16 to 18 hours a day but, unfortunately, stabling often reduces time spent eating. Ad-lib forage or feeding forage little and often for good doers helps to keep a horse occupied for longer. It's not just the amount of forage, but also the variety of fibre sources that are important for providing stimulation.

  

 

Tubtrug Drip Feeder

 


is a great way to keep your horse entertained; the shape is designed as to not roll away too fast making it safer than previous designs of drip feeders. It stimulates natural grazing, can aid in relieving anxiety & stress and it increases feeding duration to promote more natural digestion.
