The advanced specification of Smart Balance supports muscle development, immunity, hoof, skin and coat quality, digestion and temperament. It provides optimal levels of vitamins, minerals and micronutrients to support health and performance, yet its low in starch and sugar, made without cereals or cereal by-products, is Soya free contains non GMO ingredients AND is molasses free!
For horses whose energy requirements are met by forage alone, Smart Balance can be fed as the sole concentrate, to provide optimum levels of micronutrients in the diet.
For horses whose energy and protein needs are a little higher, Smart Balance acts as the foundation to your Horses Diet, with the addition of Smart Müesli, Smart Linseed and chaff or beet pulp according to your horses individual needs.
Outshine is an extruded nugget that combines oils from soya and linseed with supporting nutrients, including important antioxidants, plus superfibres and Digest Plus prebiotic, to produce a high oil supplement which can be fed to promote weight gain or stamina or simply outstanding coat shine. Soya oil is rich in Omega 6 fatty acids, whilst linseed is an excellent source of Omega 3 so Baileys Outshine combines them both to give an optimum balance, avoiding the risk of an imbalance from feeding straight soya oil or boiled linseed.
Oil is a concentrated source of slow release energy, however, the more oil that is included in the diet, the more antioxidants the body requires to deal with the free radicals produced during its metabolism. Outshine contains additional antioxidants in the form of vitamins E and C, as well as selenium and zinc, to support the safe and efficient utilisation of the oil by the body. Its extruded formula mixes well with compound feeds and straights alike, is appetising and easy to handle. Fed in small quantities, Outshine is particularly useful for increasing the non-starch, slow release calorie content of the horses diet without significantly increasing the volume fed.
Lo-Cal Balancer is a top specification nutrient-dense pelleted balancer, containing all a horse or pony needs for health and well-being, without the calories associated with a traditional mix or cube. Quality protein sources supply essential amino acids to build and repair muscle and other tissues, including tendons and hooves, while added linseed contributes essential Omega 3 fatty acids for supple skin and a super-shiny coat. Lo-Cal's formula has been subtly amended to accomodate this, and the other improvements, which have no effect on the overall calorie (DE) content of the original LOw CALorie balancer!
Lo-Cals superior vitamin, mineral and antioxidant content supports good health and includes chelated minerals, which are more easily absorbed by the horses body. It has always contained health levels of biotin, alongside other nutrients known to encourage healthy hoof growth, and now biotin levels have been boosted to 30mg/kg (from 20mg/kg) to deliver those positively identified, by recognised research, of 3mg/100kg bodyweight/day ie. 15mg/500kg horse/day, just to be (even more) sure!
In addition, Lo-Cal Balancer now has even lower starch and sugar levels, meaning it is even more suitable for equines prone to laminitis, while protected probiotic yeast and Digest Plus prebiotic support fibre-digesting bacteria, general gut health and digestive efficiency. This is of particular importance in the aftermath of a laminitic episode as a disruption in the gut microbial population will have occurred.
Lo-Cal has just been accredited by BETA as suitable for equines prone to gastric ulcer syndrome, as increasing numbers of leisure horses and ponies are being identified as, or suspected of, suffering, especially those whose forage intake is restricted. Lengthy periods without access to forage can leave the stomach walls vulnerable to acid attack so calorie-control should not come at the expense of fibre or other essential nutrients.
Lo-Cal Balancer can be fed as the sole concentrate, alongside forage, or added to reduced quantities of other hard feeds, to ensure a fully balanced diet. May also be fed with straights, like oats, for those who need a little extra sparkle. While it can be fed on its own, Light Chaff or Speedi-Beet can be added to provide low calorie bulk and increase chew-time.
Many riders know that, as workload increases, so do their horses nutritional requirements but many also find that a competition mix or cube provides too many additional calories for their working good-doer. This is where new improved Performance Balancer comes in as it provides appropriate levels of essential nutrients, without unwanted calories and can be fed as the sole concentrate or added to reduced amounts of mixes or cubes.
Performance Balancer is low in starch and sugar, as well as energy, so is suitable for horses prone to gastric ulcers yet who dont need the calories provided by Ease & Excel. It contains quality protein supplying a superb amino acid profile, to help build and promote muscle and top line and support tissue repair. Boosted levels of antioxidant vitamins and minerals help neutralise free radicals and promote healthy muscle function, while Digest Plus prebiotic and the live probiotic yeast, Actisaf, ensure a healthy gut and fibre digestion.
As well as being the first balancer to be accredited by BETA as suitable for horses prone to gastric ulcers, Performance Balancer has been improved to:
Be more concentrated so a bag lasts the average 500kg horse in moderate work, around 6 weeks.
Contain elevated levels of key vitamins, including E and A.
Supply superior levels of biotin which, with a full package of additional nutrients, will help promote healthy hoof growth.
This flagship of the Baileys Stud Range is scientifically formulated to provide essential nutritional support for all types of breeding and youngstock as well as performance horses at rest or in work. The quality protein it contains supplies key essential amino acids, which are important for muscle and tissue development, and helps encourage steady even growth rates without promoting excessive weight gain. Its balance of vitamins, minerals and trace elements, including chelated minerals, has been specifically developed to support correct skeletal development and tissue integrity as well as the immune system and general well-being. The blend of Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids from linseed and soya oil are essential for tissue integrity and help promote healthy skin and coat.
With minimal starch and calorie levels, Stud Balancer is perfect alongside forage for those who hold condition well or can be fed in conjunction with other compound feeds, or straights, where additional energy for condition or performance is required. Small frequent, digestible meals are key to reducing excessive glycaemic response and avoiding starch overload, which can be associated with uneven growth rates. The nutrient density of Stud Balancer means that only small volumes are required, helping keep meals sizes down and also benefiting those with reduced appetite. Yeast culture is included, to stimulate fibre digesting bacteria, along with Digest Plus prebiotic, which feeds other beneficial species, and the two work together to promote overall gut health. This is of particular importance at times of stress and for the fussy feeder.
