These rations are free from maize and oats and the energy principally comes from soya oils in the full fat soya, which provides a source of cool, calm energy. The full fat soya is extruded to increase digestibility of the soya, making the protein, Omega 3 & 6, and Vitamin E more readily available for absorption. Lucerne is a wonderful source of fibre with naturally high calcium levels. All our rations have optimum vitamin and mineral inclusions to international standards.
Spurwing Horse Feeds has outstanding breeding rations, specially formulated to nurture the needs of the broodmare, foal and young horses. Our breeding rations have an elevated calcium content and are nutrition dense to help lactating mares.
Whilst a portion of the energy source remains full fat soya, the grain component is in the form of oats and extruded maize. The oats are rolled for better digestibility and nutrient absorption, and more importantly, all maize is extruded. The extrusion of maize is VITAL for the horse to reap the maximum benefits of this energy source. Extrusion allows for absorption mainly in the foregut, which has huge benefits and reduces the danger of acidosis possibly leading to colic, laminitis and azoturia. Vitamin and mineral inclusion to international standards, included in all rations.
