Independent advice for feeding horses
Would you like to know exactly what to feed your horse or horses based on science rather than myths or fads or clever marketing spin?
Would you prefer to feed your horses all the nutrients and minerals they actually need for optimum health for their situation rather than paying for 'stuff' they don't need?
I can help with making sure your horses are on the best feeding plan possible. Since many minerals can compete with each other for absorption, Balanced Equine Nutrition specialises in feeding plans designed to ensure no nutrient or mineral is deficient and are in the right amounts. Optimal nutrition is important for good health and performance in horses, Balanced Equine Nutrition takes the complexity out of choosing which feed products or supplements to use on the basis of quality and value.
I can also check what you are feeding now to see how well your chosen feeds and supplements are serving your horses' needs.
*In many cases I can significantly reduce your feed bill*
A more than adequate nutrient diet with all the minerals like copper and zinc in the right proportions can solve a lot of problems you may be dealing with. All the following can be symptoms of a nutrient deficient diet:
Dull or sunbleached coats or a rust look in dark manes.
Poor immune systems not dealing well with infections like greasy heel/mud fever, rain scald, weeping eyes
Poor hoof quality, slow growth rate, hoof cracks, dietary laminitis or 'founder'
'Big head' if your horse is on Kikuyu or Setaria or other oxalate grasses
Topline and general muscle building issues
Muscle and nerve issues/twitching/overly sensitive behaviours
Your horse may fatigue easily, that feeling that your horse is simply 'not right'
A horse with too much energy, easily over excited
Diarrhoea issues or hay bellies
A foal growing too quickly
