Nice ‘n Easy can be used as a partial hay replacer in rations for all classes of horses. Nice ‘n Easy is also ideal for stretching available hay in times of hay scarcity or when the quality of available roughage is not desirable.
Nice ‘n Easy is fortified with all the essential vitamins and minerals and also contains added oils making it a very suitable maintenance ration especially for good doers with low activity, but in need of a quality ration that will also ensure a healthy coat. Nice n Easy also contains 1g/kg of live yeast culture for improved gut health.
For good doers, diluting the existing hard feed incrementally with Nice ‘n Easy until a balance is found on which the horse maintains well, is recommended.
