Feeding instructions

DO NOT FEED DRY –THIS PRODUCT CONTAINS UNMOLASSED SUGAR BEET AND MUST BE SOAKED FOR 2-3 MINUTES BEFORE FEEDING. Introduce a new feed gradually over 7 to 10 days building up to the amounts needed to maintain condition and energy levels (0.25 – 5.0kg depending on size, type, workload and condition). Place feed in a shallow bucket, add twice as much water as feed, then stir. Wait 2 to 3 minutes before feeding this product. Unmolassed chaff or soaked Fast Fibre can be added after soaking, if adding unmolassed chaff, stir well before feeding. This feed is not suitable for horses and ponies prone to laminitis. Fast Fibre could be a suitable feed, please call us for more information. Do not feed to sheep. This feed is made from natural ingredients, so may change colour slightly through the seasons, or take longer to soak. If the feed is not soaking quickly enough, please leave to soak for longer, or soak the feed in warm water, then stir, until it forms a nice soft mash.

IMPORTANT, PLEASE READ: To get the best results from Veteran Vitality, please make sure that you do not feed any other products that contain barley or molasses. Many traditional feeds contain barley and/or molasses which can cause excitability in some horses. Even horses that do not become fizzy as a result of these ingredients can benefit from a low starch and sugar feed such as Veteran Vitality. *

1 Stubbs scoop holds 1.5kg of dry Veteran Vitality. Please note, all feed amounts are in dry weight/per day.

Reviews

Just wanted to say thank you for your fabulous feeds, Charlie is my 30 year old New Forest x TB who I have owned for 15 years, he wasn’t in the best condition when we first got him but he has transformed into a shining show pony and is still winning now! Charlie has had a fantastic season so far in 2017; competing at in hand and ridden he has won five championships, two reserve championships, one reserve supreme and two Supremes. Everywhere I go I am asked “what do you feed him?” – Veteran Vitality and that’s it!
