KEEPING IN SHAPE IN THE WINTER MONTHS

The days are shorter, the temperatures lower, and the weather is grey and wet. It’s winter again! Be honest: do you adapt your horse’s care to the seasons? Your winter stable routine should be different from your summer routine. For example, your horse probably spends much less time turned out than he does in the summer. Perhaps you’ve also clipped your horse? And perhaps you’re seeing the typical winter complaints of weakened immune system, mud fever, or thrush. It’s time to take a closer look at the stable routine in winter!

We start this with a short checklist for you to complete. How do winter and summer differ in terms of your stable management?

-Is your horse turned out more, or less?

-Is your horse exercised more, or less?

You’ve probably answered both of these questions with “less”. Less exercise, and less time turned out. So you can also see that your horse has fewer opportunities to burn off energy. And more time in the barn often means more boredom. Make sure that your horse gets enough roughage, distributed over several rations per day, so that he can eat continuously and his stomach is always full (this also helps fight boredom). If needed, give your horse a feed supplement or a balancer with the necessary vitamins, minerals and trace elements. If your horse is getting less exercise, adjust the quantity of concentrate feed to reflect this.

    Helpful Tips

    To compensate for vitamin and mineral deficiencies in leisure horses, we recommend Cavalor Nutri Support. If you don’t want to give your horse too much concentrate feed, this feed supplement provides your horse with all the vitamins and minerals it needs. For sport horses, we developed Cavalor Nutri Plus. It contains more nutrients than Nutri Support, because sport horses have higher requirements for certain vitamins and minerals. It also contains amino acids, electrolytes, vitamins B and E, and selenium.

    Cavalor OilMega is a plant-based aid to support the equine gut microbiotica and immune system. It’s a balanced blend of special fatty acids, Omega-3, Omega-6, vitamin E, and natural antibiotics to support gut health. It promotes a shiny coat and supports metabolism. We recommend feeding it to your horse from November until April.

    Cavalor Fiber Beet Mash is high in fibre, an essential part of equine nutrition. It contains dried beet schnitzel flakes and long fibres. Soak for 20 minutes before feeding. Your horse will also enjoy it as a tasty winter treat.

    Then give him Cavalor Wholegrain, a high-fat concentrate mix that will keep your horse healthy and his coat shiny and ensure weight gain.

    Wash him first with Cavalor Derma Wash, a pH-neutral shampoo that disinfects the skin without drying it out. This makes clipping easier and more efficient. Cavalor Derma Wash has added glycerol to condition the coat and skin.

    Thrush is an annoying condition caused by bacterial infection. Supporting healthy bacteria (probiotics) with prebiotics gives you a significant advantage: you can actively suppress the bad bacteria that cause thrush! Cavalor Dry Feet is formulated on the basis of pre and probiotics, making it outstanding in fighting thrush.

    Mud fever is hard to combat, but with the right products you can get it under control. Cavalor Muddoc contains over 10 essential oils working together to heal, relieve and disinfect. The formula is 100% natural!
