Situations suitable for:
The pellet version is helpful if you have a horse that doesn't require hardfeed but dose need additional support to navigate stress factors. Ideal for all equines! Combines well with Base pellet. Both Foundation & Performance pellets will be here soon.
Support may be helpful for horses that are prone to spookiness, unsettled behaviour, largely effected by feed/grazing, super tight and/or sore muscles, horses that are hard to settle, anxious and are startled or stress easily and don't cope with change well or are highly emotional. Suitable for horses that require B vitamin supplementation or are in poor health and need additional support. It may be helpful in supporting and healing mild stomach issues, however the herbal approach can take longer as it facilitates healing. For more serious ulcer related issues please consult your vet for diagnosis.
Trials found pellets to be acceptable in taste. The aim was to keep the pellet ingredients within the HHIO feed guide lines and as smaller dose rate as possible, meaning more value for money.
Please note this product is generally well accepted, however can have palatability issues due to the binder inclusion, for the more fussier equine.
It is designed to be fed alone and not with feed, especially wet feed.
For horses not hardfed currently, should be an easy transition, for horses currently hardfed, you may find some reluctance initially as your horse now only gets 1/2 cup of pellets a day rather than a larger hardfeed, this soon passes.
This product is evolving, feedback as always is welcomed.
