A different feed for every horse

 We are aware that every horse is totally different and unique, and that each one goes through different stages that will require special nutritional coverage. For this reason, Equusline has created four very different ranges with more than fifteen types of feed, in order to be give your horse exactly what it needs. To make it easier for you to choose, we have created a selector that lets you know which feed is the best for your horse. Do you want to try it?

N

Which one is better: the granulated feed or the multiparticulate?

Each format has different properties. Starting from good ingredients, it is not about whether one is better than the other, but whether it is better suited to cover each need. The granulate is formed after grinding the ingredients and subjecting them to a pressing process combining low temperatures and high pressures, which has a “pre-digestion” effect on the starches and proteins while preserving all the nutritional properties of all the nutrients that form the feed . This makes them more easily digestible in stomach and intestine even in animals that do not chew sufficiently for any reason.

How often do I have to feed my horse?

When specifying the kilograms of fodder or feed, we refer to quantities recommended per day. However, due to the characteristics of the digestive system of horses, their type of digestion, anatomical characteristics, etc., we highly recommend to distribute the quantities in several doses. The number of intakes will have to be evaluated according to other variables such as the type of facility, time availability, etc.; but it is recommended that they be at least 3 times a day – minimum 2 – and always accompanied by forage and ensuring that the horses have access to clean and fresh water.

I am planning on increasing the frequency and duration of my horses' workouts. How much do I have to increase the daily feeding ration?

If the amount of feed the horse is eating is adequate, (between 750 gr and 1 kg of feed per 100 kg of live weight) it is advisable to change the type of feed to a more energetic range. This is because if we increase the amount of feed we give the horse, we are forcing their digestive system to work harder, which can lead to longer and heavier digestions, with the risk that this entails; and even to not be able to digest all that amount of cereal and therefore not absorb nutrients properly.

N

Can I give my horse a cereal mix instead of feed?

There are two major differences between horse feed and cereal mix:
 
The first is that most “raw” cereals are not very digestible for the digestive tract of a horse cannot digest the cuticle (outer grain film) of many cereals. In the case of feed, either by granulation, or by presenting the cereal in the form of flakes, the cuticle is broken transforming the cereal into digestible for horses. The second big difference is that, not taking into account the cereal, the feed provides vitamins, minerals, amino acids, trace elements and other ingredients that the horse needs, especially in the case of performing any sport.
N

Do all the cereals have to be processed so that the horses can digest them correctly?

The cereal par excellence used historically in equine feed, for its energy intake, richness in fiber, quality, safety and high palatability is also the most digestible of all “raw” materials. So much so that there is no difference in terms of digestibility whether it is raw or processed. That cereal is OATS.

Can I change my horses' feed?

Yes. You just have to do it correctly. Inside the horses’ intestine there are large amounts of different species bacteria, which are very beneficial – they help the horse do the digestion among other functions like protection, absorption, synthesis of nutrients, etc … Especially in the case of animals,that flora is very specialized because when eating similar-sized rations every day, the population of the bacteria can reach a very stable equilibrium.
 
If the change of feeding is carried out abruptly we can break that balance and that can lead to bigger problems. However, if the new food is gradually introduced, the intestinal bacterial population becomes accustomed and in a few days (4-5), the horse is perfectly adapted to the new food without causing any problems.
