NAF General Purpose Supplement (Equine)
A broad spectrum vitamin and mineral supplement formulated for the horse or pony in light-to-moderate work.
A high fibre diet is natural to the horse, mimicking the continual grazing that his gut evolved to thrive on. Fibre provides slow release energy, ideal for maintaining condition. For this reason, many leisure horses will receive adequate energy for work and to maintain condition from grazing and forage alone.
However, fibre alone is unlikely to provide all the micro-nutrients required for health and vitality. Vitamins and minerals are particularly likely to be low in preserved forage, such as hay or haylage, and where grazing is less than optimum, such as closely grazed paddocks, fast growing grass and in areas of high rainfall.
General Purpose Supplement provides a broad spectrum of vitamins and minerals for health and vitality. Designed to complement the high fibre, low concentrate diet, General Purpose Supplement is ideal for all horses and ponies receiving less than manufacturer’s recommended rates of hard feed.

|Testimonial||Merrie Metallic, a 6 year old New Forest gelding, and Lulu a 3 year old Dartmoor hill pony owned by Anne Harding. Both ponies enjoy success in the show ring at local level. As native breeds, they live out and their diets are forage and fibre based. Both ponies lost weight through last winter and Anne wanted to ensure balanced diet, so introduced General Purpose Supplement into their diets. Even though grazing is poor due to muddy fields, both ponies have come through winter really well this year. Anne will carry on feeding the supplement, along with introducing garlic to help repel flies and support general health and condition. "Thank you for such good products. The results are clear to see!"|
