Quantities to be fed

Most TopSpec Feed Balancers should be fed at a rate of 100g balancer/100kg bodyweight daily. The following table will help you to decide how much to feed to your horses or ponies. (As a guide a half-pint mug holds approximately 200g of any TopSpec Feed Balancer).

Important points

  • As with all new feeds TopSpec products should always be introduced gradually over a period of four days, starting with approximately one quarter of the amount you intend to feed by day four. TopSpec feed balancers can be fed with forage alone or with your choice of straights/blends and/or compound feeds
  • The diet of sweating horses must be supplemented with additional salt, especially if feed intake is low. All horses should have access to a salt-lick 24/7 but common table salt should be added to the feed of sweating horses daily
  • Keep an eye on the horse’s condition as feeding TopSpec Feed Balancers with other hard feeds means over a period of 4-6 weeks you may need to reduce the other hard feed
  • In most cases do not add feed supplements within TopSpec Feed Balancers. Additives e.g. TopSpec Calmer, TopSpec 10:10 Joint Support, TopSpec Electrolytes can be added if required
  • We are frequently asked if garlic can be fed with TopSpec, the answer is yes, for any herb
