TopChop Lite is of similar nutritional value to average quality hay but contains less sugar. The composition and fine texture of this product make it ideal for horses and ponies prone to, being treated for, and recovering from laminitis. It is suitable for all horses and ponies and perfect for good-doers and others prone to weight gain. The formula for TopChop Lite was tested and developed at the Middle Park Equine Research Unit and has been approved by the nutritional team for use in all horses. However they recommend that horses and ponies needing to gain weight, and all breeding stock, would gain greater benefit from TopChop Alfalfa. In combination, TopChop Lite and TopSpec AntiLam make an ideal complete feed for horses and ponies prone to, being treated for or recovering from laminitis. TopChop Lite features:- Made from high temperature dried British alfalfa and high quality chopped oat straw with added real mint to improve palatability.
