BREEDING & DEVELOPMENT
HORSEHEATH NUTRITION Products have been used for many years by a number of
very successful horse and pony breeders in the Beds/Herts/Bucks areas, as
their testimonials show.
Although not originally formulated for the purpose, a number of customers
have found BodyBuilda™ and Working Horse Mix to provide highly
effective base feeds for their breeding stock.
STUD MIX - a high quality conventional coarse mix
formulated to provide all the nutrients essential for the health &
well-being of your
stallions, mares and foals. More info....

Pony Mare was in foal to one of Anne Smalley’s stallions. It went very
lame seven months before foaling, looked like a toast-rack and was written
off by its vet. Its owner was referred to John Chapman for advice, as
a result of which it reared a healthy colt foal (which later bit him!)
and made a full recovery. It was fed Horseheath
with additional soya and a mineral/vitamin supplement
E-mail from Tamara
Bird, Ulceby, N. Lincs
I am the owner of the horses in the photo that Serge sent to you.
I am really pleased with the feed that you have been supplying us with. I am especially impressed with the LinGold. The mare's coat has an incredible shine; she absolutely glows, even after delivering a foal. I would normally need half a bottle of show shine at a horse show to get her coat to look like that. Unbelievable!
I was very worried when the mare was diagnosed with 'mild Laminitis' about
5 weeks before she was due to foal. The vet said that it was mild,
however, could get a lot worse, and her diet needed to be immediately
changed. The mare had been on stud nuts and I was worried about how the
new diet would affect the unborn foal, and also the mare's milk production. However, after moving her onto the Horseheath AntiLam, LinGold, and Pegavite Vitamins, she continued to stay in great condition and the foal was born very healthy and the mare's milk production was normal.
When I had the farrier over a few weeks ago, he said that her hooves
looked absolutely normal, and commented that I must have caught it very
early and it was well managed.
So thanks for some very good advice and some very good feed!
About the photo:
The photo was taken when the foal was less than 12 hours old.
The mare is my 11 year old American Quarter Horse, 'Zips Glamour Girl'
(stable name - Dipsy), we have called the colt 'Dakota' his sire is an
Appaloosa (Joe's Handy Leo). Dakota is Dipsy's 2nd foal. When Dipsy is
not involved in motherly duties, I show her western at American Quarter
Horse Association (AQHA) shows, and with the Western Equestrian Society
Dipsy, Dakota and I live in Ulceby, North Lincolnshire."

“For a number of years I have used BodyBuilda™ as the base feed for all
the horses here plus some full-fat soya for any that need a little extra.
All our horses like the product and look very well. “
N. b. Sharon has been using BodyBuilda™ since
& Jessica Suffling, Briar Stud (Luton)
been feeding HORSEHEATH PRODUCTS for more years than I care to
remember! I've used most of the feeds at different times, with breed
types ranging from IRISH DRAUGHTS to Dartmoor ponies. When I was
breeding I.D.s the brood mares had Stud Mix; currently the pony foals do
well on Body-Builda. This product has proved very effective at improving
and maintaining condition for both I.D.s and ponies, with Equi-Builda
for problem cases. Equi-Builda has also worked well in optimising gut
function. It gave our Welsh Section C an appetite - she used to pick at
her food - now she eats as a Native should. Our 17 y.o. Dartmoor mare
SHILSTONE ROCKS HANNUCKA won the Ridden Dartmoor Performance Award, fed
on Body-Builda. Her activities included Showing, W.H.P, Dressage,
& S/J. She's been to HOYS twice! I've also used NON-HEATING MIX,
and Anti-Lam for ponies where laminitis is a worry."

used Horseheath products about 1987!
