Fast Fibre® is a low calorie/energy feed, ideal for the good doer or those who tend to be excitable even on low energy feeds. It is high in fibre and low in starch and sugar, making it suitable for horses and ponies prone to laminitis. Due to its high fibre content, it is also particularly useful for horses and ponies with dental problems and can be fed as a partial hay replacer. Fast Fibre’s® unique recipe enables it to be soaked in under a minute so you can be sure that your horse’s feed is always fresh!

DO NOT FEED DRY – THIS PRODUCT CONTAINS UNMOLASSED SUGAR BEET AND MUST BE SOAKED FOR 30-60 SECONDS BEFORE FEEDING.

Introduce a new feed gradually over 7 to 10 days building up to the amounts needed to maintain condition and energy levels (0.5 – 7.75kg depending on size, type, workload and condition). Place feed in a shallow bucket, add twice as much water as feed, then stir. Wait 30 to 60 seconds before feeding this product. Unmolassed chaff can be added after soaking, if adding unmolassed chaff, stir well before feeding. Suitable for laminitics. Do not feed to sheep.

This feed is made from natural ingredients, so may change colour slightly through the seasons, or take longer to soak. If the feed is not soaking quickly enough, please leave to soak for longer, or soak the feed in warm water, then stir, until it forms a nice soft mash.

IMPORTANT, PLEASE READ: To get the best results from Fast Fibre, please make sure that you do not feed any other products that contain barley or molasses. Many traditional feeds contain barley and / or molasses which can cause excitability in some horses. Even horses that do not become fizzy as a result of these ingredients can benefit from a low starch and sugar feed such as Fast Fibre.

1 Stubbs scoop holds 1.5kg of dry Fast Fibre. Please note, all feed amounts are in dry weight/per day.
