Healthy Hooves Molasses Free

Dengie - Healthy Hooves Molasses Free

A new tasty twist on an old favourite.

Just one thing missing - the added sugar! It's still a complete feed with no need for any extras and it has the same nutrients, vitamins and minerals to help keep horses and ponies looking and feeling fabulous, and their feet in great condition.

A splash of rape seed oil has been added to replace the molasses. It has been developed following requests for a molasses-free feed from Dengie customers. 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. 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.

Healthy Hooves Molasses Free is designed to be fed as the sole bucket feed alongside your horse’s normal hay/haylage ration. It is important that it is fed at the recommended quantities in order to provide the levels of nutrients your horse or pony requires; feeding less may affect condition and performance. If using less than recommended quantities, a broad spectrum vitamin and mineral supplement should be used alongside. Healthy Hooves Molasses Free is intended for horses and ponies at rest or in light work if fed as the sole bucket feed.
