OCD IN HORSES: Did you know that OCD (Osteochondritis dissecans) can be caused by the wrong nutrition in growing horses? OCD is a developmental disease which results in abnormalities in the cartilage and bones of a horse's joints. 

Excessive energy intakes can lead to rapid growth rate and size and can increase the incidence of OCD.  T&R Horse Grower Weaner Pellets have been developed with a protein:energy ratio that promotes sound bone development. They are nutritionally balanced to avoid any deficiencies or excesses and reduce the impact of OCD.

Feeding a laminitis, cushings or EMS prone horse doesn't need to be difficult. There are simple and cost-effective feeding options that can help you control these health issues. 
We recommend feeding lupins, which are a naturally low sugar and starch energy source. 
Lupins are a safe option for horses with insulin issues, as when digested, they do not cause spikes in insulin or blood sugar fluctuations that lead to these health problems. 
✔ Lupins are high in protein and help with adding condition. They are also a good source of the essential amino acid lysine. 
✔ Lupins are a quality source of digestible fibre, which is essential in healthy gut fermentation and has a prebiotic effect, feeding the good bacteria in the gut. 
✔ They are a good source of cool energy, so don't fizz your horse or pony. 
✔ Our flaked lupins are safe and easy to feed, and don't require soaking. Their NCS is 6.6%. 
✔ Lupins are cost effective, as you do not need to feed large amounts to satisfy their nutritional requirements. 

DIET TIP: We recommend feeding T&R Flaked Lupins, with a fibre source and an Advanced Feeds Pty Ltd  Vitamin & Mineral supplement to create your own, complete, safe feed.

This amazing person is Tahlia Baxter! Some of you may know her from the showjumping circuit, but did you know she also breeds miniature goats? She has been featured in the Countryman, telling her story, about how 'Diego', a baby goat she bought changed her life. Check it out, it's worth a read!

MEET DODDY GOILE! We're excited to introduce Doddy as our new Carriage Driving ambassador. Doddy is a passionate horsewoman, who has made the transition from riding to driving. Doddy not only competes in driving events, but puts in behind the scenes for clubs and inspires people to give driving a go.

🔹 What style of driving do you do?
Carriage driving CDE (Combined Driving Events) dressage, cones and marathon

🔹 What do you do outside of horses?
Carer for people with disabilities

🔹 Where are you based?
Dwellingup

🔹 Tell us a bit about your horses:
These two are both out of Australian riding ponies with a Welsh A daddy.
Minstals Moonglow "Mack" is 20 years old. Beelo_Bi Matilda (dam) and Moondyne Caro (sire). Started from halter breaking as a 5 year old after being gelded. 

Minstrals Bagatelle aka "Fish" is 13 years old. Out of Beelo_Bi Jacaranda (dam) by Moondyne Caro (sire). 
Was beautifully handled on the ground before I got him, but started at ground zero for me at the age of 4 for him. 

🔹 What are your favourite achievements to date?
Putting the boys together as a pair to drive. 
Competing the CDE nationals here in dwellingup in 2019, and driving them in the open level - as smooth as butter! 

🔹 What are your goals?
To travel over east to compete in 2022 CDE nationals and to getting in a higher grade of dressage with the boys. 

🔹 Where do you get your inspiration?
Boyd Excell and the drivers in Europe. And just bettering my driving skills with the ponies and horse. 

🔹 What do you feed your team?
T&R Pony Cubes. It just keeps them in a very nice condition with out putting extra unwanted weight gain and it does not heat him up. Gives them shiny coats, easy to find at my stock feeder, good price, and the ponies love to eat them!

Welcome to the team Doddy!
How often do you take progress shots of your horse?
It can be a really handy way to keep track of your horse's health and condition. When you see them regularly, it is harder to catch changes like weight loss or gain early. 

💡 TIP - Take a photo from each side and behind your horse once a month. Try to take the photos in natural light as it makes it easier to compare from month to month. 
You can also take photos of their legs and feet, so you can pick up any changes there too. 
💡 Taking regular photos can help you track their weight, topline, colour and coat health.
PURE JOY! Charli and Roger pictured with judge Shush Kingham after a successful show! They won Supreme led, and the smiles say it all. Thanks to Candra Tassell for sharing this photo with us.

WHY DO PRE & PROBIOTICS BENEFIT BREEDING STOCK & YOUNG HORSES?

Foals, like human babies need to establish healthy gut bacteria so that they can digest, function and develop correctly. The first microbes to colonise a foals digestive system are those that come from the mare through contact, colostrum and milk. 

So it's vital for a broodmare to have a healthy microbial population in her hindgut to pass on to her foal. It also helps her to digest feed and get the most out of fibre and plant material like pasture and hay. 

Young horses that are starting to eat solid food can also benefit from pre & probiotics, as their microbial populations haven't fully developed yet due to their age. 

Encouraging lots of fibre-loving microbes is important, because they are able to ferment fibre to create Volatile Fatty Acids - a vital source of energy. 

This is why we've added pre & probiotics to our Horse Grower Weaner Pellets, to promote gut health and digestion in your horses.

NEW IMPROVED FORMULA - Horse Grower Weaner Pellets
Our complete feed for young horses and breeding stock has had a boost! Now with even higher levels of Lysine, vitamins and minerals and added pre & probiotics to support superior health in your horses. 

✅ Added Pre & Probiotics - to increase the good bacteria in the hindgut and promote superior gut health. 
✅ Increased levels of Lysine - an essential amino acid that is vital for ideal growth in young horses and protein synthesis in horses of all ages
✅ Increased levels of vitamins & minerals - including calcium, phosphorous, magnesium, Vitamin E, A, D & K and many more. 

The new Horse Grower Weaner Formula is coming to your local WA stockist. There will be a sticker on our old bags to reflect the change while we change over to the new bag stock.

6 WAYS TO AVOID WINTER WEIGHT LOSS IN YOUR HORSE
Winter is coming...so what do you need to do to help your horse, young or old, get through winter in great condition and health? 

1️⃣ Be proactive! If you have a horse prone to weight loss, currently in poorer condition or an older horse, work hard on adding some weight and condition to them now, to help with insulation and energy reserves.  You need to make any feed changes slowly, so preparing your horse for winter starts now. 

2️⃣ You may need to increase your horse's dietary energy. Decreasing temperatures can increase your horse's energy requirements, as staying warm uses energy. Winter pastures tend to have a lower feed value, so your horse relies more on us to make sure their diet meets their nutritional requirements. 

3️⃣ Increase your horse’s intake of fibre. Fibre and forage are the feed ingredients that contribute to your horse’s warmth the most! The digestion and fermentation of fibre produces heat, and they also promote the healthy bacteria in your horse’s gut. Good levels of good bacteria means they can access more energy from Volatile Fatty Acids.  They should be getting a 1.5-2% of their body weight minimum. 

4️⃣ Try to use quality fibre sources: the higher quality your hay or fibre source is, the higher it will be in calories. This is especially important in winter, where calorie intake is important for maintaining condition and providing energy. If your hay quality isn’t high, or you’re worried about fibre intake, try to add a feed that is high in quality fibre. 

5️⃣ Add some oil for additional calories: adding just 20-60ml of Canola or Linseed oil can boost the calories and energy for your horse. It is great for oldies especially as it is easily digestible. The Omega-3 and Omega-6 will also keep their coat healthy – and a good coat is like a good jumper!

6️⃣ Pre and Probiotics can help: they can help promote the healthy gut bacteria that digests and ferments fibre and absorbs nutrients. Especially in older horses who’s bacterial populations have decreased, a boost can help them to convert their fibre to energy and warmth.
