Any pelleted feed carries a risk of choke – we strongly recommend soaking pelleted feeds until free from lumps.

FEEDING INSTRUCTIONS
As with any new feed, introduce gradually over a week.
Lucie Pellets are ideally fed soaked.
Alternatively, mix with soaked PuraBeet or a Simple System chop
and dampen well.
For foals, greedy, elderly or dentally challenged horses,
Lucie Pellets should be soaked.
Use 2-2.5 times their volume of water.

Feed according to requirement & condition.
Start with 100g per 100kg of bodyweight per day, increase as required up to a maximum of 5kg per day. For example, for a 500kg horse start with 500g per day (dry weight, before soaking) and increase as required.

A level Stubbs bowl scoop = 1.6kg (dry weight) approximately

Blends & Balancer Measure holds = 0.5kg (dry weight) approximately
