Equilin’s products are all based on the concept: “The New Feeding”.
“The New Feeding” is back to the natural needs of the horse, which means that ten years ago the roughage standard was 1 kg of hay per 100 kg of body weight per day. The ration then had to be supplemented with kilograms of concentrates to obtain sufficient nutrients.
Now we know better! In the meantime, scientific studies have shown that this is outdated. And that a horse needs at least twice the amount of roughage to keep its body healthy and to feel satisfied. A horse naturally eats even more roughage.
And that means that when a horse gets double the amount of roughage, the sugar and protein intake also doubles. This sheds new light on feeding concentrates. The necessary supplement to the roughage must be adjusted so that horses and ponies do not become too fat and remain fit and healthy.
Roughage alone usually does not contain all the necessary nutrients. For example, it does not contain enough minerals. Just like vitamin E, which is usually also not sufficiently present in dried roughage, the BALANCERs supplement this.
The intestinal flora is also a point of attention, because the horse must be able to digest the roughage in order to get enough energy from it. And that is where things often go wrong with roughage alone. This can be balanced with the BASICs.
When you compare Equilin products with other “sweet” types of food, you see a clear difference in sugars and amounts. All those kilos of sweet chunks (chips and cookies) are unhealthy for your body. You can compare it to someone who eats large amounts of candy every day. This is not beneficial for all body processes and causes imbalance in the body.
“The New Feeding” is therefore certainly a big step in the right direction with healthy and balanced feed. Our vision is to provide happy, healthy, satisfied horses.
