Concentrated Feed

Feed Less, Care More If your horse or pony is prone to weight gain or excitability, it’s likely he needs to be fed less than the recommended levels of mix or cubes. Feeding less is fine – but how do you make sure his diet stays balanced? SPILLERS® Cool Concentrate is a unique concentrated mix. It has six times the levels of vitamins and minerals than a traditional low energy feed. So all your horse’s nutritional requirements are packed into one tiny 500g portion, without him getting too many calories.

well-being. High quality protein helps to build muscle tone and topline, and oils promote coat shine and support healthy joints – so there’s no need for expensive supplements. Feeding less means each bag will last you longer too, saving you both time and money. SPILLERS® Cool Concentrate is suitable for good doers, horses and ponies with low energy requirements, horses and ponies on an all forage diet and horses and ponies on box rest.

We’ve also added a number of other ingredients to help maintain your horse’s

Fussy Eater? A tasty solution Fussy Eater Feed

Feed should be nutritious. But taste matters too. Especially if you’re faced with a horse who’s choosy about what he eats. SPILLERS® Meadow® Herb offers the ideal solution: a wholesome, non-heating* herbal mix that smells and tastes every bit as good as it looks.

In trials, owners found that their horses consistently enjoyed eating the mix. Their horses and ponies found Meadow® Herb more palatable than their original mix; even the fussiest eaters were easily tempted by the smell and taste. Healthy nutrition has never been more appetising.

When I changed to SPILLERS® I was surprised to see my ponies choose the feed before they touched their fresh carrots.

The Perfect Complement. It’s routine: adding fibre to your horse’s feed is important for digestive health. But is it working as well as it could? Shouldn’t fibre really complement the mix or cube you use? With a palatable blend of dried alfalfa and straw, enriched with a broad spectrum of vitamins and minerals, SPILLERS® complementary fibres provide your horse with more nutrition than any other chopped fibre blend.

Using a low energy feed? Choose SPILLERS® Cool Fibre with magnesium. Or for a conditioning feed, choose SPILLERS® Conditioning Fibre with extra soya oil and protein. Feeding a senior feed? Add SPILLERS® Senior Fibre with glucosamine and live yeast. The Perfect Complement, only from SPILLERS®..

Control Performance Just as in human athletes, performance in horses is influenced by many factors. However, no athlete can ignore the role of nutrition in providing the fuel for that performance. Supplying the competition horse with the correct amount and type of energy can mean the difference between success and failure. The SPILLERS RESPONSE® Competition Range offers three competition feeds enabling you to choose an optimum supply of energy to suit your horse’s requirements.

“ RESPONSE® Competition Feeds

Because the range is perfectly balanced, the feeds can be blended together to provide the right type of energy for your horse. You know your horse; the SPILLERS RESPONSE® range gives you the tools to tailor his diet and fine tune the balance of quick release and slow release energy to suit his temperament.

I have used SPILLERS® for years because I like the results I get when I feed it to my horses.

Feeding Stallions, Broodmares and Youngstock Rearing youngstock successfully is a demonstration of good stockmanship. Whether you are in the breeding business or breeding from your favourite mare, you have to wait months and even years from conception to when your foals start realising their true potential. There is no substitute for good and detailed management of the mare and her

offspring. Part and parcel of this is their nutrition, which provides the foundation for growth and development. SPILLERS® Stud Feeds all contain added immune support, are formulated to support digestive health and have optimal levels of quality protein to support muscle and topline development.

Nutrition has a major influence on growth and development, right from the time of conception through to the growth period and adulthood. Therefore; understanding the dietary requirements of gestation and lactation, is critical for optimal health and development.

Feeding Guide Whether you have a top level competition horse or a family pony, nutrition will play a major part in the way your horse behaves, performs and looks. A diet that is correctly balanced, supplying the nutrients your horse needs will support long term health and well being.

How much to feed? Most horses should consume 1.5% to 2.5% of their bodyweight per day according to their condition and workload. This total should be divided between forage and hard feed, with forage making up at least 50% of the ration. Since forage can vary considerably, both hard feed and forage should be weighed regularly.
