The Mollichaff Complete range offers three fibre-based complete feeds: Mollichaff HoofKind Complete for horses and ponies prone to laminitis; Mollichaff Calmer Complete for nervous or excitable horses and ponies; and Mollichaff Condition Complete for encouraging weight gain and condition.
When fed at the recommended amounts, these complete feeds can be used as the sole bucket feed as they each contain a broad spectrum vitamin and mineral supplement and only require good quality forage to be fed alongside. Being fibre-based feeds rather than cereal-based, they are a much more natural way of feeding.
A fibre-based feed will weigh a lot less than cereal and so the recommended feeding amounts may seem like a lot, but it’s important to ensure your horse or pony is getting the correct amount in order for him to get all the vitamins and minerals he requires.
Because the feed is fibre-based, it takes longer to eat and more chewing is required, which is good as the horse is a natural ‘trickle’ feeder. By stimulating the production of saliva and slowing down the passage of food throughout the gut, Mollichaff can help to promote good digestion and will satisfy a stabled horse’s psychological need to chew.
All three varieties in the Mollichaff Complete range come in a 15kg bag and feeding a complete fibre-based feed can work out to be much better value than feeding several different concentrates and vitamin supplements and is also a more natural way to feed your horse or pony. It is also much easier to store a single bag of feed and no shopping list required!
