After having a discussion with our local feed store about our dissatisfaction with feeds I have used in the past I was curious as to what other mini owners feed their horses, and if you have had any bad experiences with a particular brand in the past? I currently use HyGain and we are very happy with it...but they are always trying to get me to change!

Hi YarrehLane.... Smile

I use to feed Pegasus Studmaster (pellet designed for youngsters, broodmares etc) to my young horses & oats for the adults with a coat supplement, Full Fat Soy.

I've changed now & using Hygain Showtorque & Grotorque with wonderful results & i don't see the need for any other supplements bar a quality vit/min only as i don't feed the required amounts of the S or G.

I have a rising 5yo Arabian Pony whom is an absolute delight to show, fully halter trained but hasn't got that "spark or spunk" in the ring, i like the horses i show a bit hot to give them that edge, kinda like "look at me - me only!"
Oil, oats, Showtorque etc etc didn't give us that so someone told me to try Mitavite Formula 3 (for Racehorses). Didn't give us that extra bit i wanted but her body condition & coat (no extra supplements) certainly agreed with this feed, lol. scratch Laughing

I am currently using Hygain Balanced, mainly because I have a broodmare who had laminitis and tried a few other products but this one has her coat shining and her weight back on...she wasn't overweight to begin with and feeding a foal meant she lost a weight. I find it easier to just have one feed as it's too confusing for husband at feed times otherwise. lol Oh and I use equilbrium as well and have done for the past 4 years.
In the past I have used Mitavite:which dried all the coats out and then a mitavite rep told me I was meant to feed them their oil as well, but if you are going to pay that much for a feed I expect everything to be in there. I won't be switching from Hygain but I was just curious as to success and failures of other mini owners. Smile

Have tried so many different things with my little ones - robank's progress (broodmares & growing horses), show pony pellets, cool and calm pellets, muesli, etc....

After a long time of changing feeds to try and get a good diet and maximum benefits from their feed i know have my show guys on:
Oaten Chaff, Hygain Balanced, Livamol, Linseed oil, Garlic and twice weekly they get Speedi Beet.

My other minis that are not showing get Oaten Chaff, KER Low GI Pellets, Garlic and Speedi beet twice weekly too.

They all get 1/2 biscuit of Oaten Hay daily and 2 hard feeds daily.

I dont feed my minis lucern in any way (chaff or hay) as i have discovered with my guys it tends to bloat them out and can also heat up their skin which in turn can (and has) create itchy skin.

For good top line on the young ones i use weight gain or prydes easi results.

I swear by a teaspoon of garlic daily in their feeds - it helps keep and winter bugs at bay (snotty noses, coughs etc) and in summer keeps the flies away.

The show boys have a pick paddock of a day and stabled at night.

Some have added herbs for other issues - skin problems, joint flexibility etc.
for 1 of them i also use Khonkes own Trim which helps considerably with cresty necks and fatty deposits.

Interested to hear what everyone else uses
Very Happy

My big boys (16hh +) have a totally different feed regime though lol

How long after you start using the Livamol do you start seeing a difference in the horses? I usually put mine onto sunflower oil when preparing them for a show to get the gleam in their coat and it gives them that extra bit of spark.

I use Livermol on our stallion too as he looses all his colour when clipped and it helps darken it up underneath. Livermol doesn't work on all horses though and on some it causes them to dapple instead of having even colour so I wouldn't recommend starting to use it right before showing. It can take a good few weeks to see to the difference though...but we have had people ask if we got a new stallion when we first started using it as his colour was so different.

Well the last show I took dear little cappa too i had been using the livamol for about a month... And then clipped him and that was his coat under neath and well you see he got 2nd in that big class.

When I clipped warrior and he was on livamol he was jet black,this time round he wasnt on it and went a grey colour.

And shatter,I notied her coat went alot darker as well.

But my stud mix has sun flowers in it too so that helps.

But it is expensive.
For two kilos its around $15 for a big bag its like $90 but would last forever with just the minis getting it.
But be warned....the rats LOVE it and will do anything to get to it..so will big oaths of thoroughbreds who steal it and have red powder all around their mouth and look at you like "what did I do?"

Yeah Cappa did look great, so I wonder if it was the sunflower or the livamol then? I have often considered buying it, see the price and go, ummm I will pass for now!
