Hi, my Welsh Sec D is a good doer and if the grazing is good he only gets a handfull of Safe & Sound with a mug full of Baileys Lo-Cal balancer. Your mare may not need any hard feed atall, I would just stick to a plain type of chaff such as Dengie Hi-Fi with a lo-cal balancer or a multi vitamin supplement.

My very "good doer" mare will be moving on to Pink powder (and off the Light pelleted Balancer she's been on this winter) which I can mix in with a handful of Dengie Lite.  She really needs nothing but does need her joint supplements and so on so does need a daily feed to mix it in!

Spillers Happy Hoof.

 

It is just like dried grass, all you do is add water, it does no harm, it is not an energy feed, and it helps prevent Laminitus, now the spring grass has arrived :) I use this on all my horses!
