As the nights draw in and the weather draws colder, our horses tend to become a little sharper or ‘fresh’, in particular those with clipped skin and those stabled for longer periods. Feeding to support behaviour and helping to bring about a calm nature will help to provide a positive experience for both horse and rider. As riders we try to build confidence by taking steps to desensitise our horses so they understand the situation we are placing them in. With unsuccessful situations, horses don’t tend to forget and it can take a long time, if ever, to restore their trust.

With the added cooler conditions and variables we experience it can be beneficial to offer a helping hand, target their inner stress response and in turn help give them confidence to understand the task at hand. The benefit of including a bio-available high spec magnesium at the right levels, supports the muscle post contraction and therefore helps to induce a relaxed state and helps prevent premature contractions. As riders ourselves at NAF, we developed NAF Five Star Magic trialled and proven to improve trainability without having a sedative effect. The amalgamation of unique herbs combined with the right balance of vitamins and minerals on top of magnesium helps to effectively address and support their stress responses during the colder months.

NAF Five Star Magic works like Magic, once they feel better on the inside, you will enjoy the more confident ride and feel confident to take on new challenges – in all weathers.

📍Calf scour – tips - Treating diarrhoeic calf: The diarrhoeic calf should be isolated in a dry, well-bedded pen. 1-2 litres of oral electrolyte are given at a time, but, it is important to alternate this with milk feeds or use an electrolyte preparation that can be added to milk as the nutrition provided by milk is essential for recovery.

Intravenous fluids administered by a veterinary surgeon are essential in dehydrated calves that are unable to stand unaided.

Oral antibiotics are not necessary. Parenteral antibiotics should be used to control concurrent infections, e.g. navel ill and calf diphtheria.. Alternate milk and electrolyte solution should be fed every four hours.

Ingredients used in fly repellents are well tolerated by horses and ponies, but even so, for any new product you use, a patch test is advised. This reduces the risk of your horse and pony having a widespread adverse reaction to any product. To perform a patch test, apply the product to a small area of skin ideally at the base of the neck and leave for 48 hours, then check for any form of reaction before continuing use.

“I was struggling to keep muscle on my now 17yr old TB and his previous feed was not supporting his muscle development at all. I like to try new things and I saw that Allen & Page had brought out Muscle & Focus, so thought I would give it a go. I have had my boy on this for just over 3 months now (I put him on it as soon as it came out in my feed shop) and I won’t look back!

I have the fussiest horse in the world, and he turns his nose up at everything, however, this feed he took to straight away and licks the bowl clean! But the best news for this is we are now achieving clear rounds xc and showjumping. Prior to being on Muscle & Focus he would knock a pole here and there, which was frustrating, but I can see this feed is building him up to be strong, and he is now lifting those legs and is getting clear rounds finally – I don’t think it’s a coincidence! Muscle & Focus is also making his bottom look amazing, which is where he usually struggles to put on and hold muscle!

I have to say this feed is totally suiting him, and I won’t be changing anytime soon! Oh and 10 minutes soaking time – ideal for me as I am always forgetting to soak his breakfast the night before! Thank you Allen & Page for helping my boy get those clear rounds and keeping him sane at the same time! I’m pretty sure it’s helping with his hindgut as well as not so girthy since being on this feed!

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!”
