If you want to start your future horse or pony off on the right hoof, the diet is the most important place to start.
Correct nutrition is absolutely fundamental in preparation before the mare is sent to stud, and afterwards while pregnant and for the lactating mare and the growing foal. Horslyx Balancers are the ideal method of providing extra nutritional value in the diet of broodmares and youngstock. The comprehensive lick supplements the diet with vitamins, minerals, trace elements and antioxidants supporting health and the immune system. In addition, Horslyx Balancers provides the correct calcium: phosphorus ratio and good quality protein which is essential for healthy, efficient growth whilst being low in starch. While all horses may benefit from the vitamin, mineral and trace elements which Horslyx Balancers provides, native and warmblood breeding stock may do particularly well only on Horslyx Balancers plus forage, as their nutrient requirements are easily met, meaning excess calories are not provided which avoids unwanted excess weight gain.
Horslyx Balancers are extremely practical for mares, stallions, foals and youngstock whether they are stabled or enjoying 24/7 turnout and saves the hassle of providing concentrate feed whilst they are at pasture. Horslyx Balancers are designed to be licked, not chewed and the dense, solid formula is waterproof and windproof, providing an easy to access trickle feed system in the field or stable, which eliminates the risk of foals being pushed away from hard feed and not receiving the nutrients they need.
Providing free access to Horslyx Balancers can help the broodmare, stallion, foal and youngster to overcome the nutrient deficiencies typically seen in modern day forage and grazing, by supplying ingredients such as Magnesium, Zinc, Copper, Iodine, Selenium and Vitamin E. The nutrients provided in Horslyx Balancers are essential for fertility, healthy growth and development and also help to maintain a strong immune system to help withstand disease challenges.
