A well-earned reward after heavy exertion.
Daily amount of Mash & Mix per animal: maximum 0.3 kg per 100 kg live body weight. Preparation: mix with 50 % hot water, let the mash absorb the water and cool for 15 minutes.
REPLENISH LOST ELECTROLYTES
Mash & Mix is perfect to give after your horse works to help him replenish his lost electrolytes. Electrolytes (salt + minerals) are produced by the body but take up to 2-3 days for the horse to naturally replenish. Give electrolytes just before and up to an hour after a heavy effort. Because horses can’t store them for later use, they must be used right away.
HERBS TO STIMULATE DIGESTION
Horses are designed to be grazing throughout the day, and because modern horses are sometimes stalled, we must help support their consistent digestion throughout the day. Mash & Mix uses a variety of herbs to stimulate the digestive tract and increase the palatability of the Mash.
HIGHLY DIGESTIBLE INGREDIENTS
Mash & Mix uses puffed barley and corn. Puffed grains have an improved starch digestibility in the foregut of up to 85- 90%. These grains travel through the stomach and small intestine at a slower rate, allowing the digestive enzymes more time to act on the feed.
DIVERSE PROTEIN SOURCES
We use a variety of protein sources to create a more complete amino acids profile. There is protein in barley, wheat, corn flakes, oats and more. A broader amino acids profile is better for the horse’s digestive system and conversion into energy.
Can Cavalor Mash & Mix be used as a daily feed?
We do not recommend using Cavalor Mash & Mix as a stand-alone feed because it has a high concentration of wheat bran. Under certain circumstances such as during transport or post-operation, Cavalor Mash & Mix can be used as a daily feed for a limited time.
What do I do if my horse doesn’t want to eat a Cavalor supplement?
We spend a lot of time and effort testing our products in both field and laboratory palatability trials prior to their launch. All horses are different and although it is uncommon, some horses may not like certain products. If you have a picky eater, it is important to begin administering products in small dosages and increase dosages little by little until they meet label requirements. Mixing supplements into a mash such as Cavalor Mash & Mix can also help.
My horse is prone to colic. What can I do to remedy this?
Feeding the horse Mash & Mix may help prevent colic. Because of its specific composition, this feed infuses the intestines with sufficient moisture. This helps avoid congestion and blockages. Combined with hay or good-quality silage grass, this will significantly help prevent the problem from arising. As a top-dress to the forage ration, you can also feed carrots or fodder beet (known in the U.S. as beet pulp).
