Caution – Faster growing animals may be more susceptible to developmental orthopedic diseases. (DOD)

Note: Growing Warmblood and Draft type horses may require different amounts from light horse breeds.

Amount of feed required is dependent on the body condition, the metabolism and the rate of growth expect ed. Proper intake of minerals and vitamins is extremely important for growing horses. Brooks Enhancer or All Phase 20 should be added to the ration when less than the recommended amount is fed. Provide fresh clean water and free choice salt at all times in addition to a minimum of 1% of the horse’s bodyweight in hay or equivalent pasture. Store in a cool dry location. Amount fed varies according to quality of hay. Hay analysis is recommended. Adjust the amount fed according to quantity and quality of pasture while ensuring adequate minerals and vitamins are provided. Growth monitoring of growing horses using a tape or scale is recommended.

Phase I is a scientifically formulated growing ration suitable for foals and weanlings. Phase I is a result of substantial research undertaken to develop the best possible nutritional profile for growing horses prone to developmental orthopedic diseases. Phase I draws energy largely from highly digestible fibre sources called “super fibres” and high-quality fat (primarily soy oil with the valuable addition of stabilized flax) In keeping with research illustrating the benefits of a “low glycemic” diet, the starch and sugar levels are appropriate for growing horses. The mineral profile including organic (chelated) trace minerals provides highly available bone building nutrients to complement an ideal amino acid (protein) profile.

Phase I supplies total nutrition in a very palatable textured or pelleted form that foals, and weanlings take to readily.

Key Benefits:

  • High quality protein and energy sources provide ideal levels of amino acids to encourage safe growth with an appropriate calorie density for growing foals.
  • Highly digestible fibre and fat maximize the positive effects of non NSC energy sources while a controlled level of soluble carbohydrates help to fully support growth.
  • The addition of stabilized flax adds greater calorie density and valuable Omega 3 fatty acids.
  • A well-balanced level of vitamins and chelated minerals to encourage sound skeletal growth and help prevent developmental problems related to nutrition. Chelated minerals are more readily and thoroughly absorbed for improved performance and health.
  • A proprietary form of Saccharomyces Cerevisiae a prebiotic with a wide body of research improves digestion of fibre and promotes more efficient use of nutrients.
  • Brooks Oxiguard System of natural source Vitamin E and organic selenium significantly contribute to muscle development and strength.
  • Meets the daily maintenance requirements for B Vitamins including biotin
