A complete fibre-based concentrate feed designed for the nutritional support of horses and ponies prone to laminitis.
HoofKind is a highly palatable mix containing a balanced blend of oat straw, alfalfa, fibre pellets, soya oil, vitamins, minerals, trace elements, antioxidants and therapeutic levels of biotin.
HoofKind is low in starch and sugar, high in fibre and does not contain any cereals.
HoofKind provides a low level but high quality protein and restricted calories and so provides limited, controlled energy from high quality digestible fibre and oil-based ingredients, making it an excellent feed for ‘fizzy’ horses and good doers, as well as laminitics.
HoofKind contains a broad spectrum vitamin and mineral supplement, and when fed at the recommended levels to horses at rest or in light work, HoofKind needs no further supplementation other than good quality forage such as High Fibre or Timothy HorseHage.
HoofKind contains additional therapeutic levels of biotin. Independent, scientific studies have found that supplementing an average horse’s diet with 15mg of biotin per day can greatly increase both the growth rate and the hardness of the hoof. Mollichaff HoofKind has been specifically formulated to ensure that these levels are met. For an average 500kg horse, feeding the required 2.5kg per day will provide the required 15mg of biotin.
