EQUINE CHALLENGE™ SUPPLEMENTS VITAMINS & MINERALS GRASS FEEDING INSTRUCTIONS:
When choosing between the alfalfa and the grass formulas, if your horse is being fed 8 lbs. of alfalfa or more per day, you want to order the Equine Challenge™ Vitamins & Minerals for alfalfa fed horses. Horses fed less than 8 lbs. of alfalfa per day will need Equine Challenge™ Vitamins & Minerals for grass/oat hay fed horses. If you feed a hay mix, If the mix is more than 50% alfalfa, feed Equine Challenge™ Vitamins & Minerals for alfalfa fed horses. If the hay mix is more than 50% grass, feed Equine Challenge™ Vitamins & Minerals for grass fed horses.
The recommended dosage of Equine Challenge™ is 2 – 4 oz. daily depending upon the activity level of your horse. For non- performance horses, we recommend 2 oz. per day. For performance horses, horses in training, or pregnant and lactating mares, we recommend 4 oz. per day. For horses previously not on any supplement regimen, we recommend an initial dose of 4 oz. daily for 3 to 4 weeks, adjusting dosage thereafter in accordance with your horse’s activity per standard dosage recommendations.
My two Morgan mares have been on Equine Challenge™ Grass, Equine Challenge™ Probiotics PLUS and Equine Challenge™ Sand Flush PLUS for seven months now. This year they are slick, shiny and practically glowing with good health. My buckskin looks positively metallic in the sunshine, and my brown mare has gotten so dark that she is constantly mistaken for a black. While they had good hooves before, what they have been growing out since starting Equine Challenge™ is amazingly strong and resilient, my trimmer always has to bring fresh rasps with him now. Manes and tails are full, silky and beautiful, and both girls just have an air of vibrancy about them. As long as I have horses, I will be an Equine Challenge™ customer! Thank you for making such a wonderful product.
When feeding Equine Challenge™ , feed no more than 2 oz. at any one feeding with a maximum dosage of 4 oz per day. We recommend splitting Equine Challenge™ doses into a.m. and p.m. feeding times.
