Favourite Dodson & Horrell feed and why? – Suregrow
I find myself regularly recommending Suregrow when faced with a difficult challenge of fast growing youngstock or good doing pregnant mares. I love the solution this product provides being a high specification vitamin & mineral diet balanced for mares and youngstock where excess calories must be avoided.
Top Feeding Tip – The addition of Kwik Beet around travel or competition times when managing a horse who drinks less in times of stress. This ensure fluid intake and the fibre encourages motility of the gut.
What product would you recommend every store to stock? – Ultimate Balancer – The vast majority of horses ranging from field companions up to affiliated competition horses are managed on a daily ration below the recommended intake of their complete feed and therefore Ultimate Balancer corrects any vitamin & mineral deficiencies without adding any extra calories or ‘fizz’. Simultaneously supporting digestive health, hoof strength, recovery and immune systems with FOS, yeast, biotin, chelated zinc & methionine, QLC antioxidants, MSM & vitamin C.
