Hi vicky,
I've not heard of it, but I'm sure someone will know of it, sounds useful.

just to point out bran can be wheat bran, oat bran, barley bran etc or a mixture, all have slightly different qualities,

bran is good, low ish calorie but good protein but it has low calcium & high pottassium(?) so be carefull if you use it for brood mares or youngsters, a calcium balancer is a good idea, sugar beet & any bran is a great combo in general very good for low work ponies but no darn use in the laminitic!!

pity we cant somehow transfer the extra blubber of the fatties to the can't keep weight ons....OH if Only!!!
cheers cheers cheers bye

bran is high in the mineral phosphorus, and unless carefully balanced with calcium can cause bone formation problems in breeding and youngstock, and sometimes in older animals, its important to get the correct ratio, more calcium than phosphorus, that' why i don't use it , and always feed it well damped to avoid choking, if you want to fill them up try growing grasses of meadow mixture not grazing on cattle type grasses, a pain to change but helps long term

Hi Pen, found the son at Agri Demeter,(13.87 for 40kg) it's only just down the road. Baccardi is ok now. It was Laminitis but she wasn't showing the normal signs. Both vets(local & st lo) said it was very unusual (time of year,no grass,not over weight,not getting any hard food) but thay think it had alot to do with the hard ground & concussion.She has support shoes on the front & I have started taking her for a pootle in the field keeping on the soft & we will see how we go.
Hope all is well at your end. Vicky bounce

I know it's not what you wanted to hear, but at least you know what you're dealing with. Thankfully all ours are well and managing to keep well and out of trouble, thank goodness Rolling Eyes
Hope to see you in the not to distant future. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
