Purina Enrich Plus Ration Balancing Horse Feed
Horses need more nutrition than forage alone can provide. Today’s horses are typically limited to a single type of forage in one geographic area. Pastures in the same area or even different sections of the same pasture can have inconsistent nutrient values. Unfortified grains such as straight oats and corn can also have variable amounts of protein, minerals and vitamins. So horses need your help to achieve the nutritional balance they once derived naturally.
Enrich Plus Ration Balancing Feed Adds Necessary Nutrients to Your Horse’s Diet. Enrich Plus is a concentrated, pelleted ration balancing horse feed that may be fed as a horse’s sole ration along with quality hay or pasture to provide the proper balance of protein, vitamins and minerals without unnecessary calories. It can also be fed with unfortified whole grains.
