Day Son & Hewitt Foundation
Online for Equine offer the Day Son & Hewitt Foundation.
A broad spectrum multi- vitamin and mineral supplement designed to balance the diet of all classes of horses and ponies.Fed alongside good quality forage, Foundation will eliminate the requirement for compound feed for horses at rest, in light work or those that hold weight easily.?
A balanced diet is essential for health and performance and the basis of this diet should be good quality fibrous forage, as this is what a horses digestive system has evolved to deal with. However, in many areas of the UK, forageis deficient in essential minerals and nutrients and even in non-deficient areas, its quality can vary tremendously. In addition to deficiencies suffered as a result of poor quality forage, horses which are fed less than the full recommended amount of compound feed are also likely to be short of essential nutrients. Therefore, in both these situations, it is essential to supplement the horses diet with a high-quality forage balancer such as Foundation. If a horse is receiving a balanced diet, they will be healthy and maintain condition.
Provided in handy sachets to ensure the supplement stays fresh and takes out the guess work of feeding supplements to your horse or pony.
Supplied in Tins of 30 Sachets.Learn More

NAF Limestone Flour
NAF Limestone Flour offers a rich source of calcium designed to supplement bone growth requirements. Limestone Flour should be fed when there is a need for additional calcium in the diet to supplement bone growth requirements. Calcium is essential to all animals for bone and tissue growth and integrity. Calcium salts make up approximately 70%of the weight of the bone, and it is this that gives bone it's rigidity. Calcium also has a number of other important roles to play throughout the body. It helps in muscle contractions, particularly of the heart, and it has a role in the nerve impulse transmission in the central nervous system. Perhaps calcium's best known role is in milk production and it is vital that lactating mares have an adequate supply.
Limestone Flour is recommended as a source of calcium for those on a straight or cereal based diet, particularly if bran is included, to balance the calcium to phosphorous ratio. A lack of calcium in the horse is seen as epiphysitis and weakness. Limestone Flour contains only ground limestone and is, essentially, pure calcium.
However limestone flour is not recommended for youngstock, as excess calcium can lead to developmental abnormalities such as Osteochondrosis desicans (OCD).

How does Vitamin B12 work?
Vitamin B12 is essential in maintaining healthy blood cells and ensuring a healthy nervous system. It has a fundamental role in the metabolism of energy in the body, ensuring that maximum value is gained from each mouthful. Horses cannot make their own vitamin B12 and rely on internal production from the fermentation of fibre or additional supplementation. Equilibrium Simplyboost Energy Tonic can be used on its own or with other Equilibrium Simplyboost products to create tailored vitamin support for your horse or pony.
With natural mint flavour, Equilibrium Simplyboost Energy Tonic can be added to normal feed, a handful of Simply Irresistible feed topper or a munch block. Feed for at least 5 days or until bottle is finished, repeat as required.

Horses have complex digestive systems that require food intake 8-16 hours each day. With the modern day requirements of the horse to be fit for competition and housed conveniently, it is rare that horse owners can fulfil the horses demand for ad lib forage. This is why it is important to feed general health supplements which contain broad spectrum vitamins and minerals. Horses that are stabled overnight are often without food for long periods of time and therefore, feeding vitamin and mineral supplements ensures that they are not losing out on valuable nutrients from the lack of forage. Online for Equine stock a wide range of supplements to keep your horse healthy from brands such as Dodson & Horrell, Feel Good 30 and Maxavita. It should be noted that we always recommend ad lib forage for stabled horses and feeding a supplement does not replace the horses metabolic requirement for hay/haylage or grass.
