What to feed our horses no matter what their age or which discipline they do can be a mine field as there are so many feeds to choose from. Here at Equikro most of us all have horses some of which are competed to a high level, others which enjoy a life of hacking or some of which are still babies or even veterans!
We have until now not stocked feed purely because of the logistics of carrying such a large and varied range of numerous manufactures and products but …….
We now stock the range of feed from the Pure Feed Company as with such excellent results on our own horses we wanted to share this with our customers! Here is the story of how the Pure Feed Company was born.
“The Pure Feed range of feeds developed out of the enthusiasm of Lou Talintyre to find the best way to feed the 100 or so horses in her care. Lou had been looking for a feed that avoided excessive starch and sugar and was easy and economical to feed. Her goal was to feed these horses entirely with their health and welfare in mind. A feed that was high in fibre, low in starch and free from molasses, but was fortified with optimal levels of vitamins and minerals was needed, but at the time, no such feed was available on the market. Lou contacted specialists in equine nutrition to formulate a feed and with the aid of a concrete mixer the first batch was made. The horses loved it and so did the visiting mare’s owners who were so impressed with the health and condition of their stock, they wanted to continue to feed it on their return home.
What Lou started back in 2006 was truly a revolution in feeding horses. She wanted a feed that fed the horse what it needed without molasses to wash it down with, in a way that the horse has anatomically evolved to eat. She wanted a feed formulated without compromise, something Pure and Simple.”
