Finding a 'good doer' horse feed

Finding a ‘good doer’ horse feed can be challenging; some horses naturally have more energy than others and each horse will experience weight and condition maintenance differently.

For those with a fizzy or excitable temperament, finding a feed that provides the right amount of energy without making them too sharp can be a process full of experimentation and expense. Getting the perfect feed can be further complicated when you have a horse that puts on weight easily too.

Megan, Bear & Lara

Megan has been a long-time customer of Pure Feed and, like many of us, has faced the challenge of finding a ‘good doer’ horse feed. Here is her story.

"I started feeding Pure Feed several years ago and have never looked back. I had been really struggling with Bear's weight and attitude at the time, and had also discovered that Lara was very sensitive to sugar and molasses. For these reasons I was looking for a feed that was as natural as possible with low sugar and no additives. I was chatting to my local feed merchant at the time and they told me about a new feed they had coming in which was all of the above. I started with a few bags of Pure Easy and have fed that ever since. The horses were all so much calmer and more content once I made the swap. Bear was less wild due to the significant reduction in his sugar and starch intake. I really love how it is such a natural way of feeding, they get exactly what they need - nothing more, nothing less."

"All of my horses have a base feed of Pure Easy. This is because it is exactly what its say on the tin, easy. I have peace of mind that they are getting all of the nutrition they need without any nasty hidden bits. Pure Feed has certainly given me a yard full of very happy, healthy and mostly very behaved horses. People always ask me how I get so lucky with having youngsters that tend to be very level headed. I think it is massively down to the fact that their feed is as natural as it can be and doesn't have heaps of additives. They have an amazing shine all year round and build muscle well too. Overall I have been delighted with how my horses look and feel using Pure Feed. The final bonus is that they absolutely love it."
