Spillers has added a brand new blend to their range of complementary fibres, especially for older horses and ponies. Spillers Senior Fibre supplies oldies with the extra nutritional support they need to help them stay healthy in their twilight years.
To help you drive sales, your customers can enjoy £3.00 off every product in the Spillers complementary fibres range, including new Spillers Senior Fibre, from the beginning of February while stocks last.
New Spillers Senior Fibre is a balanced blend of natural fibres to complement senior feeds. It contains short chopped alfalfa and straw, carefully chosen for its consistent nutritional quality, together with mint, garlic and soya oil.
Older horses may have stiffer joints, be less effective at digesting certain nutrients and they may have compromised immunity. That’s why Spillers Senior Fibre contains glucosamine to help support joint function, live yeast to support fibre digestion and maintain gut health and vitamin E and selenium to help support the immune system. Quality protein helps to maintain topline and muscle tone and a broad spectrum of vitamins and minerals provides more nutrition than any other chopped fibre blend.
The short chop and soft texture makes it easier on the mouth for older horses who have worn or fewer teeth and are struggling to chew and grind properly. It can be combined with a mix or cube or fed as a replacement for compound feed.
Spillers research and development manager Clare Barfoot, who developed the new product, said: “Horses and ponies are living longer and longer and many continue to lead active lives well into their 20s and 30s. This is in no small part down to improved nutritional support. Adding a purpose-designed fibre to senior feeds can help support overall health, condition and general wellbeing.”
