Due to its unique formulation and suitability to the horse’s sensitive digestive system, TOTAL can be safely fed to all horses in all disciplines and life stages. Feeding TOTAL takes the complexity and guess work out of feeding different horses with different feeds and unnecessary, expensive supplements.
Due to the high digestibility and health enhancing properties of TOTAL, simple quantity adjustment is all that is needed to meet your individual horse’s daily energy and nutrient requirements.
Working & Competition Horses
Increased quantities of TOTAL can be safely fed to working & competition horses that require more energy and higher nutrient levels. Energy is primarily supplied by super fibres and oil which is readily digested without the detrimental effects of starch overload associated with cereal-based feeds. The inclusion of probiotics ensure optimum fibre digestion, nutrient absorption and protects horses from digestive upset when travelling & competing. Unlike cereal based feed, TOTAL does not provoke insulin ’spikes’ so can be fed closer to, and during competition without the risk of insulin related fatigue and impaired performance.
Brood Mares & Youngsters
The high quality and broad-spectrum protein sources supply essential amino acids required by brood mares in the final stages of gestation, and during lactation. The low water-soluble carbohydrate content (starch & sugar), and balanced nutrients promotes steady bone growth for youngsters, helping to prevent the risk of developmental orthopaedic issues during the critical growth stages of their lives.
Resting & Light Work
The elevated levels of vitamins & minerals, along with high digestible fibres, oil and herb content means that smaller portions can be fed to horses that are resting or in light work ensuring that their nutritional needs are met and mineral deficiencies balanced.
Elderly & Convalescing Horses
As TOTAL is based on ingredients suited to the sensitive digestive system of the horse, elderly and convalescing horses will particularly benefit from the quality fibres, elevated vitamins & minerals, and immune supporting herbs. Geriatrics will also benefit from the nutrient density when intake is reduced through low appetite or dental deterioration, along with the antioxidants, which help mop up free radicals and maintain a healthy immune system.
TOTAL Holistic Horse Feed is now celebrating two decades of simple, successful equine nutrition, proving that our feed benefits and nourishes all horses from post-operative, through to elite competition horses in all disciplines, and all those in between of course.
