Senior Slobber Mash Feed
Is designed as a complete feed
Very low in starch and sugars making it the ideal feed for horses that suffer from laminitis and cushing disease
Feed for old (er) horses and horses with dental problems that cannot chew very well and therefore cannot eat lumps, cereal / muesli and roughage.
Hippo Star Senior Mash Feed provides more than 21% crude fibre. The addition of the trace elements copper, zinc and manganese, as well as minerals calcium, phosphorus and magnesium ensure sufficient support of the muscles, bones and joints.
In addition to vitamin A, D3, E, C and K the vitamins of the B-complex are essential for older horses because they struggle to absorb them from roughage. To stimulate the bacterial flora yeast added, the pectin fibres from the pulp enhance this process.
For maintenance 3/4 to 1 kilogram per day per 100 kg body weight can be fed, depending on the amount of roughage.
With this quantity, generally the need for vitamins, minerals and trace elements is adequately covered.
If the horse has been working, the feed should be slightly increased depending on the duration and intensity of work.
Feed the horse often throughout the day, so the horse is regularly kept chewing and the digestive system remains as active as possible.
Hippostar Senior slobbermash should be offered in soaked form so it can be easily digested.
Mix 1 kilogram of feed in about 2.5 litres of water.
The minimum soaking time is four hours before it can be fed.
