Product description

HEALTHY HOOVES MOLASSES FREE is a complete low-calorie, high-fibre feed for leisure horses and ponies, containing essential nutrients for healthy hooves. Healthy Hooves Molasses Free is approved by The Laminitis Trust.

Healthy Hooves Molasses Free is a new tasty twist on an old favourite, with just one thing missing - the added sugar! It's still a complete feed with no need for any extras, packed with essential nutrients, vitamins and minerals to help keep horses and ponies looking and feeling fabulous, and their feet in great condition.

The latest addition to the Dengie range - with a splash of rape seed oil added to replace the molasses - has been developed following requests for a molasses-free feed from customers. "Levels of key nutrients such as biotin are just the same, as we know they work," says technical manager Katie Williams, who is responsible for creating this low-calorie formulation.

Healthy Hooves Molasses Free contains just 2.5 per cent sugar, which is found naturally in the fibrous ingredients. "Even straw and alfalfa contain some sugar - feed is rarely, if ever, sugar-free," Katie adds.

Starch levels are also extremely low, at just 1.5 per cent, because the feed is completely free from cereals or grains, which are the main source of starch in mixes and cubes. These low levels of sugar and starch - less than any other complete fibre feed on the market - make Healthy Hooves Molasses Free the safest option today for horses and ponies that are prone to laminitis.

Feed 500g of Healthy Hooves Molasses Free per 100kg of your horse's bodyweight. Fibre weighs very little compared to mixes or cubes. It is important to weigh your scoop to ensure that you are feeding the correct amount. A large Stubbs scoop holds approximately 500grams.
