Nursing Foals: Feed ¼ to 1 kg of Frisky Foal per 100 kg body weight, according to the mare’s milk production and the foal’s development.
Weanlings: Feed 1 to 1½ kg of Frisky Foal per 100 kg body weight along with good quality grassy mixed forage. Feed according to development and the quality of hay or grass.
Genetic differences, management and owners goals for growth will alter the amount that should be fed. Closely monitor the foals development and adjust accordingly.
* Feeding rates may vary depending on forage quality and horse’s activity level.
Features & Benefits
Available in pellet form.
Foals cannot separate the ingredients so nutrition is consistent in each mouthful.
Contains dehydrated alfalfa and molasses.
To ensure a palatable ration for total consumption.
Low carbohydrate, low glycemic.
Helps in the reduction of developmental orthopaedic problems and provides a cool energy.
Contains 100% organic trace minerals.
More bio-available resulting in higher uptake of trace elements which are essential for the development of strong healthy joints and an active immune system.
High level of quality protein and lysine.
Improved growth and development.
Contains Yea-Sacc® 1026 and Pulse 500.
Together, these products work as both a pre-biotic; feeding existing bacteria and a pro-biotic; adding more beneficial bugs to the gut. This works to stabilize the gut, reduces digestive upsets, and maximizes nutrient digestion and absorption.
High level of Vitamin E.
Contributes to overall improved health, immunity, antioxidant properties, and optimal nerve and muscle function.
Highly fortified formulation.
Allows flexibility of feeding rates including a lower feeding rate for “easy keepers”.
Contains added B-vitamins.
Required by the young foal for growth and health as B-vitamins are not stored in the body.
