Horslyx Balancers offer a unique and natural way to balance your Equine’s dietary requirements.
Designed to be as natural as possible for your horse or pony, Horslyx Balancers should be fed in a ‘trickle feed’ style. This means that your equine can always have access to the product, choosing themselves when they require their Vitamins and Minerals and balancing any deficiencies that can come from a grazing and forage diet. This system replicates what our horses and ponies would have in the wild and helps their digestive system to operate with maximum efficiency.
As with all new products we would advise you to introduce Horslyx Balancers into your equines diet slowly, monitoring the intake rate. We would recommend allowing your equine around 10 minutes a day with their Horslyx for the first week, the time can then be extended for periods of around ½ hour to an hour. Consumption can be easily monitored using the 5kg holder to restrict intake. Once your horse or pony has become accustomed to their Horslyx Balancer you will often find their consumption will decrease and the product can then be left for them to use freely as and when they naturally feel they need it.
|Size of Animal||Target intakes||5kg will last approx.||15kg will last approx.||80kg will last approx.|
|Pony 300kg||200g per day||25 days||75 days||400 days|
|Horse 500kg||250g per day||20 days||60 days||320 days|
|Large Horse 700kg||300g per day||17 days||50 days||267 days|
Horslyx Balancers can be used alongside a forage only diet, as if your equine is consuming the recommended intake the Horslyx Balancer will supply all the essential vitamins and minerals they need to be happy and healthy. For those animals requiring a little more energy Horslyx Balancers can also be used in conjunction with the traditional cereal diets or high fibre diets supplementing their vitamin and mineral intake.
Horslyx Balancers are also ideal to occupy horses who traditionally may stress in the stable or those who are on restricted turnout but still need a balanced diet.
With garlic oil and linseed oil
The horse evolved to eat little and often over the day, with the main part of the diet being forage. However, today’s forage is a far cry from that which our equine’s ancestors would have roamed on and grazed in history. While times may have changed, our horse’s digestive system hasn’t, and we need to take this into consideration when planning a feeding regime, ideally keeping the principles of a diet based mainly on forage with a trickle feed supply of nutrients provided to balance the diet to keep our equines healthy. For this reason, Horslyx Balancers have been created to provide the goodness required for horses to remain in peak health.
Horslyx Balancers have been carefully formulated to balance the deficiencies in forage and grazing. This is a unique and innovative approach to ensuring that the modern horse receives an ideal supply of vitamins, minerals and trace elements to support optimum health and vitality.
Horslyx Balancers were first manufactured in 1997 in Silloth in Cumbria. The debut product in the equestrian range was Original Horslyx and after initial success Respiratory, Garlic and Mobility Horslyx were introduced. In 2005 a bespoke extension was added enabling Mini Horslyx to be manufactured and today you can purchase Horslyx in packs ranging from 650g up to 80kg!
