Mare and Youngstock Balancer provides nutrients tailored to the increased requirements of mares in their last trimester, lactating mares and weaned youngstock up to 18 months of age. In many cases there is a distinct advantage of feeding a nutrient dense supplement rather than traditional stud feeds, helping good doers to maintain a healthy weight through pregnancy, which can help to ensure a healthy birth and avoid excessive joint strain in mares and foals. In addition to providing 25 essential vitamins and minerals in correct serving sizes for breeding stock, this supplement also contains high quality protein in the form of Soya Meal and probiotic live yeast YeaSacc, which is beneficial for young horses who often need support to build up a healthy population of microflora in the hind gut, as well as helping to ensure efficient digestion in mares. Mint and Peppermint Powder are added as digestive tract soothers, and also to help stimulate appetite, which is especially useful when mares are heavy in foal. Rosehips offer joint support and antioxidant status, great for all ages.
