Veteran Mix

Saracen - Veteran Mix

High quality, highly digestible mix designed specifically for the needs of the older horse.

As a horses gets older they begin to appear sunken around the hips, they do not carry as much weight and they may develop a slightly more laid-back attitude to life. Often horses over sixteen (depending on type) lose condition during the winter or summer when pasture is sparse, despite adequate shelter and hay. This is simply a reflection of their age and reduction in the efficiency of their digestive system. Pain and discomfort from arthritis and earlier injuries may affect appetite and condition.

Often the older horse does not require the high levels of instant energy he needed when he was younger, but still requires a raised level of calories to maintain and promote condition without overburdening the large intestine with starch (soluble carbohydrates). Super Fibres contain a similar level of accessible calories to that of cereals. This enables the cereal portion of the recipe to be reduced and consequently the starch level of the diet is reduced. This helps to avoid the likelihood of any digestive disorders caused by high grain diets. With the addition of high levels of vegetable oil combined with Super Fibres, energy in the diet is made available to the horse slowly, thus helping avoid the fizz that can be associated with higher starch diets.

Providing E-Max Ester through Veteran Mix will ensure that the veteran receives the many benefits of vitamin E, namely optimised antioxidant levels to help maintain normal metabolic systems and reduce the signs of ageing. Also it will help to maintain a healthy immune system, thus affording him the best protection to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
