Feed for the Older Horse this Winter

Specially formulated to help keep old horses looking younger, Old Faithful's Special Blend is a firm favourite for owners of veteran horses and this Allen & Page feed really does help keep the condition on through the colder months. The must-have stock for retailers everywhere this winter, this feed has a great reputation for keeping older horses feeling and looking well.

Popular with horse owners for its ability to avoid the problem of winter weight-loss in older horses, Old Faithful's Special Blend also provides higher levels of digestible energy sources and good quality protein. Vitamins and minerals are carefully balanced to suit older horses.

This pellet-free feed is easily digestible and simple to chew for horses whose teeth aren't what they used to be. For customers with fussy eaters, the unique blend of herbs in Old Faithful's Special Blend makes it particularly tempting and appetising. The inclusion of both linseed and soya oils also help to maintain strong joints and assist coat and skin condition, to keep customers' elderly companion in the very best of health throughout the colder months.

For veteran horses with a reduced ability to digest and absorb feed, Protexin probiotics and FOS & MOS prebiotics can prove very effective aids to good digestion, helping to maintain the balance of beneficial microflora in the horse's gut. These microbes are essential to proper digestion, preventing digestive upsets, improving feed utilisation and boosting the immune system.

Many of the herbs included in Old Faithful also work in synergy with other ingredients to provide an extremely effective feed for maintaining weight and condition.
