Mashes are very useful for hydrating horses and voluminising their feed.
High Fibre Mash is perfect for all horses and ponies that are good-doers i.e they obtain all the calories they need from forage but either deserve a feed or need a palatable low-calorie carrier for supplements.

It soaks quickly in 5 minutes to make an irresistible mash, ideal for horses and ponies that need or prefer a soft feed.
High Fibre Mash is designed to be fed with any TopSpec Feed Balancer or an appropriate TopSpec supplement as it does not contain any added vitamins or trace-elements. It is supplemented with the major minerals calcium, sodium and magnesium.
High Fibre Mash should be soaked in cool or warm water for 5 minutes prior to feeding with 1 part dry mash to 2 parts water, the resulting wet mash will have a DE of 3.5MJ/KG.
