Weight Loss/Signs of Ageing
With many older horses still working well into their twenties, signs of weight loss or ageing may become more apparent. Sixteen Plus Mix and Sixteen Plus Cubes have been specially formulated to ensure that your veteran receives all of the nutrients and antioxidants required for a happy and healthy lifestyle, plus a bit more for their musculoskeletal and digestive systems.
If your veteran is not showing any signs of weight loss or loss of muscle tone around the hips and withers, or is in fact carrying extra weight, you will not require a conditioning feed. You can still provide him or her with everything they need for their musculoskeletal and digestive systems by using Ultimate Balancer as your hard feed.
If you have an older horse or pony that is losing or has lost teeth and is now struggling to chew fibre properly, you may wish to consider using a forage replacer alongside your hard feed to help prevent against weight loss. High Fibre Nuts, Alfalfa and KwikBeet are the perfect combination. Click here to watch our forage replacer video.
