Horizon Senior

 

As horses age, they have different nutritional requirements than when they were younger. Many bodily systems do not function as efficiently in older horses, meaning they have higher requirements for protein, energy and digestible fiber. This makes maintaining body condition a challenge. Older equines also may have dental issues that make it hard to chew feed and fiber to aid in digestion.

Horizon Premium Equine Feeds were developed in Alabama to work with the forage types in the Southeast.

Horizon Senior is a highly digestible, energy-dense feed to help your geriatric horse achieve and maintain the high level of health and performance you demand.

The grains in Horizon Senior have been processed for improved digestion: High protein (14 percent) and additional fat (7 percent) help overcome inefficient digestion and absorption; yeast aids in digestion; and beet pulp increases the digestible-fiber level.

Horizon Senior can be fed as the complete diet for your horse. The soft pellets are easy to chew or can be moistened to make a mash for horses with severe dental problems.

It has added supplementation: lysine, vitamins and minerals, including B vitamins and chelated trace minerals. They have been added at precise levels to improve absorption and regulate bodily functions. GHP2 has also been added to help bind naturally occurring toxins in grain and forage – to increase the safety of Horizon Senior.

Horizon Senior as well as other Horizon Premium Equine Feeds can be found at your local Quality
Co-op. Go to www.alafarm.com to locate a store near you.
