DO NOT FEED DRY – THIS PRODUCT CONTAINS UNMOLASSED SUGAR BEET AND MUST BE SOAKED FOR 30-60 SECONDS BEFORE FEEDING.
Introduce a new feed gradually over 7 to 10 days building up to the amounts needed to maintain condition and energy levels (0.5 – 7.75kg depending on size, type, workload and condition). Place feed in a shallow bucket, add twice as much water as feed, then stir. Wait 30 to 60 seconds before feeding this product. Unmolassed chaff can be added after soaking, if adding unmolassed chaff, stir well before feeding. Suitable for laminitics. Do not feed to sheep.
This feed is made from natural ingredients, so may change colour slightly through the seasons, or take longer to soak. If the feed is not soaking quickly enough, please leave to soak for longer, or soak the feed in warm water, then stir, until it forms a nice soft mash.
IMPORTANT, PLEASE READ: To get the best results from Fast Fibre, please make sure that you do not feed any other products that contain barley or molasses. Many traditional feeds contain barley and / or molasses which can cause excitability in some horses. Even horses that do not become fizzy as a result of these ingredients can benefit from a low starch and sugar feed such as Fast Fibre.

“Garnet is my home bred 4 year old which I am aiming to be my next para-dressage horse. He’s always been a fast developer and I wanted a feed which I could rely on to give him everything he needed without over feeding him. He has been on Fast Fibre ever since he was weaned from his Dam and he looks fantastic on it. He is now loving his work and maintaining his condition really well.”Katherine Cooksley Garnet
Fast Fibre is great for my very young horses and those in for backing. It keeps them looking well and maintains good gut function without giving them any extra energy.
“Alfie is a good doer, and has very sensitive skin. Fast Fibre has suited him perfectly. He is also intolerant to sugar, but as Fast Fibre is barley and molasses free, it doesn’t make him silly. He is still out successfully competing in Mountain and Moorland classes as well as Veteran.”

“We bought Bear two years ago in the hope to show him, six months later he had his first ever show. Here it was clear he needed more condition. Since then we have fed Bear on Fast Fibre as that really brings out the best of him, and keeps him happy when he is stabled at shows as it takes him a while to eat it! In the last 18 months Bear has really found his feet and has a collection of rosettes to prove that. Thank you to Allen & Page for bringing the best out of him, the results really prove it!”
