The junior mineral  is a mineral mix that can be perfectly combined with the custom made herbal mix.

If you have a mare that is pregnant and lactating then we also advice to feed them spirulina powder.

Recommended amount:

Horses receive 3 - 5 measuring spoons per day. Depending on their size, ponies receive about half.

Since our mineral feed contains only a minimal amount of molasses, horses usually only use the mineral lick when they actually need the minerals. And they do not lick them because of the molasses ( which is only 2% )

Composition:

Calcium carbonate, sodium chloride, monocalcium phosphate, magnesium oxide, grape seed meal, molasses 2% ( please read below why it contains molasses )

The need for vitamins and minerals are often higher in younger horses. Especially because these are still growing and need the minerals and vitamins to grow into a healthy horse or pony.

The pure G Junior consists solely of vitamins and minerals, making it a very sober mix. No use is made of fillers such as alfalfa or grains as is the case with many other mixes. This makes it one of the purest mixes on the market. So you really only feed vitamins and minerals, without additives.

Then why does it contain molasses?

It contains 2% molasses to bind the dust. So it is more pleasant to eat for the horse, otherwise it can become very dusty while eating. This means that the total sugar is only 2% on 50 grams per day. In short, you only feed 1 gram of molasses per day. That is very little and negligible compared to the amount of sugar in hay or other feeds. That is why you can feed this mix with confidence, even if it contains a little bit of molasses.

If the mix remains in the bucket, you can stop feeding it. After a while you can offer it again.

This supplementary feed may be given to horses up to 150g of the daily ration. This is due to the increased content of trace elements compared to other foods.
