This high-fiber mash, infused with a tempting banana flavor, can be strategically fed to even the most discerning drinkers and feeders. The nutritional experts at Saracen Horse Feeds have addressed common queries regarding this modern-day mash.
HOW QUICKLY DOES IT SOAK?
RE-COVERY MASH achieves soaks in 2-3 minutes with warm water and 5 minutes with cold water.
MY HORSE HAS LOW WATER INTAKE; WILL THIS HELP?
Designed as a soaked product, RE-COVERY MASH promotes increased water intake. Electrolytes in the mash stimulate the thirst response, encouraging horses to drink more.
HOW MUCH SHOULD I FEED?
Feed up to a maximum of 3kg per day. Be mindful that higher intake may reduce your horse's appetite for hard feed. As a general guide, we recommend 100g per 100kg body weight in each serving.
CAN I FEED THIS TO MY HORSE WITH ULCERS?
Containing 10% starch and 6% sugar, RE-COVERY MASH is suitable for horses prone to digestive upset when fed in small quantities. Manage starch content carefully, considering the horse's current feed.
HOW SOON AFTER COMPETING SHOULD I FEED THIS?
Feed RE-COVERY MASH once your horse has adequately cooled down post-workout. Optimal feeding time is 1-3 hours after work, maximizing nutrient uptake.
WILL THIS AFFECT MY HORSE'S NORMAL FEED?
RE-COVERY MASH complements your horse's regular ration without causing dietary imbalances, as it is un-fortified.
CAN I FEED IT EVERY DAY AT A COMPETITION?
Yes, RE-COVERY MASH can be fed daily at competitions or alongside a balanced diet.
CAN I FEED IT DRY?
No, this product is specifically designed to be fed as a mash for effective rehydration.
HOW WET SHOULD IT BE?
We recommend soaking 1 part feed to 2 parts water, but you can adjust the consistency to encourage additional water intake.
THE FEED CONTAINS BARLEY, WILL IT HEAT MY HORSE UP?
Barley is included for muscle glycogen replenishment, and due to its low inclusion, it is unlikely to cause excitable behaviors.
CAN I FEED IT TO MY HORSE THAT TIES UP?
RE-COVERY MASH aids optimal hydration, crucial for horses with muscle issues, and provides essential electrolytes for muscle function in cases of tying-up.
