FiberEzy-infoIs your horse full of nervous energy and a little full of itself? Does it struggle with poor digestion or prone to laminitis or other health conditions?

FiberEzy® provides the perfect base for a high fibre, high protein diet due in part to the inclusion of the equine specialty grass – Timothy. Timothy grass provides a consistently higher level of dietary fibre for good gut function and digestive health. FiberEzy® is the result of a combination of lucerne and timothy that has undergone a Controlled Fermentation™ process giving rise to HNF® (High Nutritional Fiber) which locks in and preserves vital nutrients.

FiberEzy® is a lower energy (compared to FiberProtect® or FiberMix®), safe and healthy option for leisure horses or those participating in activities requiring lower energy, and for horses sensitive to starch and soluble carbohydrate (sugar) based feeds.

FiberEzy® is a common sense fibre choice for horses that need cool energy for calm and steady performance, and the product we recommend for horses that are sensitive or prone to laminitis, or that are convalescing or recovering from surgery.

FiberEzy® Features

FiberEzy® is produced exclusively by Fiber Fresh Feeds through a proprietary Controlled Fermentation™ process that not only preserves the full benefit of natural nutrition but also increases the energy value of the forage. This palatable high energy forage fibre, rich in natural yeasts and with an energy value similar to oats (but with the safety of fibre), can provide both the nutrients and energy for maximum performance.

FiberEzy® can reduce acidity in the hindgut and provide a more favourable environment for digestion through its natural buffering capacity. Horses obtain more nutrients, get more energy from less feed, and retain more available energy for training and performance when fed FiberEzy®.

 

FiberEzy® feeding recommendations

FiberEzy® should be used to support pasture feeding, or mixed with concentrate feeds as a high quality forage source of energy and nutrients. The equine specialty grass timothy is high in dietary fibre and low in soluble carbohydrates and is known to facilitate better digestion in horses. A lower energy forage fibre, FiberEzy® is completely safe and ideal as the base forage in the ration to aid in the management of metabolic and digestive health in horses with lower energy demands.

Always feed by weight and not volume and use scales to ensure accurate quantities. Feed at least 50% of your horse’s daily dry feed intake as forage and at least half of that as FiberEzy. Avoid excessive use of grain based feeds and prolonged periods and ensure your horse always has access to high quality forage such as HNF®. Evenly divide the recommended daily feed amount into two or more equally spaced feeds per day. Always provide free access to clean, fresh water.

 

Daily Feeding Guide (as fed) – Primary Feed

The following recommendations are calculated to help correct the forage to grain ratio and provide a base of quality nutrition. Forage should make up at least 50% of the horses daily feed intake. Feeding levels are calculated to provide 50% of the daily forage requirements of the horse. Used at the following recommended daily feeding rates, FiberEzy® will help ensure optimum nutrition, general health, good behaviour and improved performance in your horse.
