As well as containing bran, Winter Health Mash all contains a number of herbs, including mint and fennel. Both of these herbs are well known for their ability to help keep your horse’s digestive system happy and working efficiently, which is especially important over the winter months when the quality of grass is lower and his main source of fibre comes from dried forage, such as hay. There’s also the addition of echinacea, which is known to support and boost your horse’s immune system.

Simply soak the mash with hot or cold water and leave it to soak for 10 minutes before feeding. Thanks to those lovely herbs your horse will tuck in, and it will warm him up from the inside. It’s also a great way to increase your horse’s fluid intake and ensure he stays hydrated.

Added oil will give your horse’s coat some shine, and you don’t need to worry about the calcium and phosphorus ratio that’s traditionally associated with feeding bran as it’s all been balanced for you.
