Each horse is an individual and just like people they show signs at different stages in their lifetime. Horses over the age of fifteen were once considered veterans. However,with the advances and improvements in equine nutrition horses are living and working longer. Many of our top competition horses in the U.K. are over fifteen years old.
Working closely with large numbers of owners of veteran horses alongside the application of scientific principles Sweet Meadow Veteran has been formulated to maintain condition and quality of life in the older horse. Sweet Meadow Veteran is a low sugar,high fibre mix with exceptional palatability to temp the sick or convalescing horse.
Dentistry problems can often become an issue with the older horse. If they have difficulty chewing hay the fibre intake in the diet can be increased by feeding Super Molichop Lite an apple flavoured, low sugar chaff which can be offered in a seperate bucket to the concentrate feed. If extra condition is required Super Molichop Shreddi can be added to the concentrate diet. Shreddi is an excellent source of highly digestable fibre and temps even the most fickle of feeders.
