What's Inside

ICE

Super Fibres

As the name suggests super fibre is a product that contains highly digestible fibre with very little non-digestible fibre. These highly digestible fibre sources provide horses with a calorie content similar to grain, however since they are fibre they are safer to feed and given that super fibres are digested in the hindgut(cecum and colon) they do not produce rapid changes in blood sugar (fizz) like grain. Super fibres are as safe to feed as chaff and even more digestible.

Natural Vitamin E

This unique and highly stable form of Natural Vitamin E known as RRR-a-tocopherol is up to 5 times more bio available and potent than regular synthetic sources of Vitamin E. Research has shown that this form of Natural Vitamin E provides higher retention levels in plasma further aiding antioxidant, immune, cardiovascular, circulatory, neuromuscular and reproductive functions.

HYGAIN RBO

HYGAIN RBO – RBO Equine Performance Oil is a blend of rice bran oil, omega 3, 6 & 9 essential fatty acids and natural anti-oxidants known to improve the health and structural integrity of cell membranes. RBO oil plays an important role in maximising energy efficiency due to its energy dense nature and is digested efficiently in the small intestine reducing the ‘sugar high’ associated with high grain diets. RBO promotes growth and development of the muscular system, top line and a healthy skin and coat.

Biotin

Biotin, a water soluble vitamin is required by the enzymes responsible for protein synthesis and as a result is an essential vitamin for the healthy growth of hair and hooves. Research has shown that biotin improves skin and coat condition, increases hoof integrity and is widely recommended by farriers and veterinarians.

Bio-Available Selenium

Selenium acts as an antioxidant to prevent fatty acid oxidation which can cause tissue damage. Research has shown that an organic form of selenium, is more readily absorbed and retained than selenium in inorganic forms.

FEEDING TIPS

HYGAIN ICE – maximises condition, maintains control, is complete, convenient and cost effective.

HYGAIN ICE – ICE is a scientifically formulated high fibre, low starch fortified pellet designed to maximise your horse or ponies condition while keeping it calm and cool. It is important to remember each horse should be treated as an individual when feeding. Be safe and sure, weigh all feedstuffs.

Fat animals are at high risk of laminitis; maintain your horse or pony at condition score 2½ to 3. If weight loss is necessary, the animal must be stabled or fitted with a grazing muzzle. Feed intake should be reduced to achieve a slow but steady loss under the supervision of your veterinary surgeon.

Only use Laminitis Trust Approved Feeds and limited long forage or restricted grazing to avoid laminitis. Animals may require a nutritional supplement; consult your veterinary surgeon, or nutritionist for advice. Further information on Laminitis is available at www.laminitis.org 

  1. Introduce HYGAIN ICE to your horse’s diet gradually over a 7-14 day period.
  2. Feed by weight and not by volume.
  3. Feed a minimum of 1% of your horse’s body weight daily as roughage.
  4. Horses have a small stomach, so feed little and often.
  5. Ensure horses have access to clean water.
  6. Do not add additional vitamins or minerals unless directed by a veterinarian or nutritionist.
  7. For dietary recommendations and nutritional solutions contact HYGAIN.

Testimonials

Steve & Brooke Mapp - Champions on Rodeo Circuit

"We have been using Hygain feeds for about 4 years now. Our favourite Hygain feed would have to be the Ice Pellets. Being a slow release energy feed it doesn’t heat our horses up and helps maintain and put weight on where needed. Ice also contains Biotin which helps with their coat and hooves! We also use Showtorque being a non cereal grain and high in fat, it helps keep our horses chunky. When feeding horses we find the best results are the ones that you can see and these Hygain feeds really do show results! When our horses feel and look good it shows in their performance! Thanks Hygain for helping our horses look and perform great!"

"Hygain Ice is the 'go to' feed in my stables. Whether it is a new horse of my own or a client's horse arriving for work, the first thing I do is put it on 'Ice'! Hygain Ice is high in fibre but low in starch. It is a very safe feed that provides calm, slow release energy, promotes healthy gut function and supports healthy bones and hoof development. It is pretty obvious why Ice is the dominant feed in my stable. I am a big believer in surrounding yourself with good people and high quality products. I love working with Hygain because the feeds cannot be faulted and the staff are only too willing to help. Thanks Hygain!"
