Quick Soak

10 Minute Beet®

Made from unmolassed beet flakes

EQUIGLO Quick Soak 10 MINUTE BEET is a natural, fibre-rich feed that can be safely fed to all horses and ponies. It is made from sugar beet roots after the sugar has been extracted, with the dried beet flaked to ensure rapid soaking. Horses and ponies need a fibre-rich diet, and 10 MINUTE BEET offers an ideal complementary feed to forages, including grass, hay and haylage.

Benefits of

10 Minute Beet®

  • Highly palatable and versatile feed for all horses and ponies
  • Low in starch and sugar so ideal for sensitive horses and ponies, and those who require extra metabolic, digestive or muscle support
  • Helps maintain good hydration
  • Provides an excellent supply of non-heating, steady energy for working horses and ponies, and can reduce starch levels in hard working horse diets when used as a replacement for more traditional hard feed
  • Provides a calm, non-heating* method of condition gain for thin horses
  • Enhances the digestion of structural fibre e.g from hay, in the hindgut
  • Rich in calcium, and ideal balancer for straight cereals and bran
  • Convenient, easy to prepare quick-soak
  • More hygienic in hot weather than 24 hour soak beet
  • Suitable for all year round feeding
  • A natural British superfood for all horses and ponies
  • Non-GM

* A non-heating feed is one that is less likely to produce excitable behaviour in some horses and ponies when fed at the recommended rate

Feeding Guide

10 Minute Beet® is very versatile feed that can be fed:

1.

In small amounts as a bucket feed dampener, succulent or to enhance palatability

2.

In moderate amounts as an excellent fibre supply for senstive horses and ponies

3.

In large amounts as a safe supply of dietry energy for work or for condition, as a direct replacement for starchy cereal based feeds, or as a partial forage replacer for veterans with poor teeth or where foage quality is poor or forage is limited

4.

10 Minute Beet® can be fed up to a maximum of 0.5kg per 100kg bodyweight e.g 2.5kg for a 500kg horse. Adjust the amount to suit the individual horse or pony

How to Prepare

Mix 1 part 10 Minute Beet® with 5 parts cold water by weight e.g. 200g of 10 Minute Beet® would require 1 litre of water. Allow the flakes to soak for 10 minutes. Soaked Flakes can be fed immediately or stored (in a cool place) for convenience for the next feed, for up to 24 hours. Only make up enough 10 Minute Beet® for the next feed.

Using hot water will reduce soaking time to 5 minutes. WARNING: DO NOT FEED DRY

Ready in just 10 minutes.
