Equilibrium Products Calmmunch (Equine)
Vitamunch is a unique healthy, tasty, high fibre, low calorie, low sugar, cereal free snack that your horse or pony can enjoy at any time.The unique blend of flavours will help keep your horse or pony occupied, happy and quiet between meals, or even in stressful situations such as separating companions, travelling, clipping etc. Trials with Horse owners have shown that vitamunch blocks are so tasty that 9 out of 10 horses and ponies preferred them to their hay and haylage.Calmmunch is a 1kg formed block of slow dried Timothy grass so to maintain a fresh and succulent flavour. The blocks are then enriched with magnesium, B vitamins, camomile, hops and vervain which are all well known for their calming properties. The airtight packaging means they last for a year and keep that ‘just harvested’ smell and freshness. For nervous or anxious horses, Calmmunch will help support a relaxed outlook in stressful situations such as at shows, whilst travelling or at home before exercise or during clipping, vets visits, or as a distraction when stable companions go out. It provides a threefold approach to calming; firstly by the compressed fibre form offering an extended eating time so satisfying the innate need to forage and support gastric health. Its appetising taste can help distract the horse from the stressful situation as well as the carefully selected calming ingredients providing support. There are a number of ways Calmmunch can be fed; wet or dry at home in the stable or in the field or whilst travelling in the trailer or lorry. Some options include in our munch nets designed specifically to hold a munch, in your own small holed haynet, in the middle of a full haynet for an added surprise for you horse or in a bucket on the floor. - Made from top quality Timothy grass - With fortified magnesium, B vitamins, camomile, hops and vervain - Suitable for those prone to laminitis or obesity - Provides a three-fold approach to calming to provide extra support to the existing diet when needed to keep horses and ponies calm in stressful situations. - Can be served wet or dry, in a munch net, in a feed bucket, in the stable, field or trailer/horsebox The whole Vitamunch range is suitable for overweight or laminitic horses, as it is high in fibre and low in sugar and soluble carbohydrates.

To be fed soaked: Lightly dampened with a litre of water and left for ten minutes, an individual MUNCH will soften and fluff up so that horses with poor dentition can easily bite into it. A soaked block should be fed immediately - long delays between soaking and feeding can mean, as with any feed, that moulds can develop.
