Disease or Problem Suggested Feeds When to use this feed Feed It With Other Tips

 

 

 

 

 

Laminitis, Insulin Resistance or Crushing's Disease

EasiSport

Sport_Bag_Front_for_Website

 

Use EasiSport when feeding a working horse prone to laminitis, or when a laminitic or Crushing's horse needs to gain some weight.

Feed EasiSport at its recommended feeding rates with low non-structural cabohydrate chaff, hay and/or pasture. If additional weight gain is required, use EasiFibre.

 

 

"Avoid high sugar forages like ryegrass pasture or hay, oaten hay or chaff and wheaten hay or chaff. Average quality lucern hay, Rhodes grass hay or mature non-rye grass hays are best.

Never give feeds with grain, grain byproducts or molasses to horses with laminitis, insulin resistance or Cushing's Disease."

EasiFibre

Fibre_Bag_Front_for_Website

Use EasiFibre to add extra energy to a diet in place of other high energy feeds like grains, pellets or sweetfeeds.

EasiFibre is not a fotified feed, so it needs to be fed with a complete feed like EasiSport or with a concentrated vitamin and mineral supplement like the EasiFeed 300 Pellet.

EasiFeed 300 Pellets

 

300_Pellet_Bag_Front_for_Website

Use EasiFeed 300 Pellets when feeding overweight horses that only need vitamins and minerals added to their diet.

Feed the EasiFeed 300 Pellets at their recommended feeding rates with low non-structural cabohydrate chaff, hay and/or pasture. If additional weight gain is required, use EasiFibre.

 

 

 

 

"Tying up

(Recurrent Exertional Rhabdomyolysis - RER)"

EasiResponse

Response_Bag_Front_for_Website

Use EasiResponse when a non-oat, high energy feed is required.

Feed EasiResponse with good quality pasture, hay and/or chaff plus 1/2 to 2 cups per day of Pryde's EasiOil.

 

"Reduce the amount of these feeds fed on days off and replace them in the diet with an equal weight of hay and chaff.

Always make a salt block available.

Try to keep routines consistent and feed horses that are prone to RER first.

Implement a suitable work regime and allow RER prone horses to gradually build up to the required fitness level. Avoid over-exertion. If possible, avoid prolonged periods of stall confinement."

EasiPerformance

Performance_Bag_Front_for_Website

Use EasiPerformance when a non-oat, high energy sweetfeed is required.

Feed EasiPerformance with good quality pasture, hay and/or chaff plus 1/2 to 2 cups per day of Pryde's EasiOil.

ReBuild

Rebuild_Bag_Front_for_Website

Use ReBuild to top up energy intake and add vitamin E, organic selenium, B1 and chromium to the diet.

ReBuild is not a complete feed. It should be fed where additional energy is needed together with EasiResponse or EasiPerformance and forage.

 

 

 

 

"Tying up

(Polysaccharide Storage Myopathy - PSSM)"

EasiSport

Sport_Bag_Front_for_Website

Use EasiSport when a non-grain, high energy feed is needed for working horses prone to PSSM.

Feed EasiSport at its recommended feeding rates with 1/2 to 2 cups per day of Pryde's EasiOil and low non-structural cabohydrate chaff, hay and/or pasture. If additional weight gain is required, use EasiFibre.

 

"Avoid high sugar forages like ryegrass pasture or hay, oaten hay or chaff and wheaten hay or chaff. Average quality lucern hay, Rhodes grass hay or mature non-rye grass hays are best.

Never give feeds with grain, grain byproducts or molasses to horses with PSSM.

Implement a suitable work regime and allow PSSM prone horses to gradually build up the required fitness level. Avoid over-exertion.

Avoid prolonged periods of stall confinement."

EasiFibre

Fibre_Bag_Front_for_Website

Use EasiFibre to add extra energy to a diet in place of other high energy feeds like grains, pellets or sweetfeeds.

Weight Gain and Topline

BioMare Cubes

BioMare_cubes_Bag_Front_for_Website2

Feed BioMare Cubes at a rate of 1/2 to 1 kg/100 kg of body weight per day with 1 kg/100 kg body weight per day of lucern hay plus free access to good quality grass, hay or pasture.

 

 

"For the best results with weight gain, horses should have access to as much pasture or grass hay as they can eat.

Lucerne hay should be fed at
1 kg/100 kg of body weight per day.

Treat ulcers, dental problems or other underlying issues that may be causing weight loss."

ReBuild

Rebuild_Bag_Front_for_Website

300_Pellet_Bag_Front_for_Website

Use EasiFeed 300 Pellets when feeding overweight horses that only need vitamins and minerals added to their diet.

Feed the EasiFeed 300 Pellet with low energy hay or pasture. Mature, stemmy grass hays, mature pasture or weather damaged lucern hay are suitable. Add 1/8 cup of EasiOil to the diet to keep the horses coat and skin healthy.

You may need to restrict access to pasture and hay to encourage weight loss. A grazing muzzle can be used to reduce pasture intake or the amount of hay fed can be reduced to 1.5 kg/100 kg of body weight per day.

 

 

Fussy Eaters

EasiResult

Result_Bag_Front_for_Website

Use EasiResult for horses with a poor appetite or for horses that may have temporarily lost their appetite due to stress or illness.

EasiResult is best fed by itself for fussy eaters. The horse should have access to plenty of hay or pasture.

"Keep the diet for fussy eaters as simple as possible, being sure to minimise the use of salt, electrolytes and other supplements to only what is needed.

If you horse has suddenly gone off its feed, you need to identify why."

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hyperactivity

EasiSport

Sport_Bag_Front_for_Website

Use EasiSport as a complete feed for horses that become energetic and difficult to ride when fed grain based feeds.

Feed EasiSport at its recommended feeding rate with an equal volume of chaff and good quality pasture or hay.

 

 

 

"Adjust feed intake according to workload to help control behaviour. Reduce the amount of EasiSport, EasiFibre and EasiOil fed on rest days by 75% and on light work days by 50% of what is fed on normal working days.

Be careful not to overestimate workload as this will result in overfeeding and hyperacitvity.

Avoid feeding large amounts of prime lucern hay to horses that get hyperactive easily."

EasiFibre

Fibre_Bag_Front_for_Website

Use EasiFibre to add extra energy to a diet where needed in place of other high energy feeds like grains, pellets or sweetfeeds.

EasiOil

EasiOil_Bottles

Use EasiOil to add extra energy to a diet where needed in place of other high energy fibres, grains, pellets and sweetfeeds.

EasiOil can be added to any balanced diet. For hyperactive horses it can be added to a diet based on EasiSport or simply fed with chaff, EasiFeed 300 Pellet and good quality pasture or hay.
