Saracen Horse Feeds are excited to take delivery of their first order of new branded clothing from Reborn Fabrics, made from recycled plastic. In line with Saracen’s ongoing sustainability pledge, Reborn offer a fully sustainable range of clothing, saving the ocean from some of the 8 million pieces of plastic that find themselves there every day. Environmental awareness has long been a core value at Saracen, and now, every single branded soft-shell jacket will be produced using 20 plastic cups, aptly recycled from horse racing events.
It can often be difficult to feed a horse that can be excitable or nervous especially if they are 'poor-doers', or are in high levels of work. Energy and calories are the same thing meaning to provide your 'poor-doer' with calories for weight gain you will need to feed a compound feed with a moderate to high digestible energy level. To ensure this additional energy is used for weight gain and maintenance, or for work, without encouraging ‘fizzy’ behaviour, the aim is to base the ration on fibre and oil rather than cereals and starch.
Saracen Horse Feeds are excited to announce the launch of their new feed RE-LEVE®-Cubes. Built on the success of the RE-LEVE®-Mix, the innovative RE-LEVE®-Cubes are the result of over 2 years research and development with exclusive nutrition partners Kentucky Equine Research. Low in starch, low in sugar, whole cereal and alfalfa free, RE-LEVE®-Cubes have been awarded the BETA Feed Approval Mark as a suitable feed for horses and ponies prone to Equine Gastric Ulcer Syndrome.
Do you have a good doer that requires more energy for work without the additional calories? Competition Fit Balancer is based on digestible fibres and oils to provide continuous energy, whilst the inclusion of cereal aids glycogen replenishment and helps to reduce the onset of early fatigue whilst providing power to perform to help achieve your goals in 2021.
