Complete Fibre-based Feeds From Mollichaff

MolliChaff Complete Feeds

Are you fed up of having to purchase several bags of different feed and supplements in order to feed your equine friend? Why not try a complete feed from Mollichaff and save time and money?

In addition to the well-known chaff range, Mollichaff also produces three specialist ‘complete’ fibre-based feeds – Mollichaff Calmer (for nervous or fizzy equines), Mollichaff Condition (for added weight and condition/poor doers) and Mollichaff HoofKind (for laminitics/good doers/ equines convalescing or resting).

The word ‘complete’ is used to denote that these feeds contain a broad spectrum vitamin and mineral supplement, which means that when fed at the recommended amounts, no further concentrate feed is required – just good quality forage. So you have no need to purchase further bags of feed or expensive supplements as everything your horse or pony needs is in one bag!

Unlike many complete feeds on the market, ours are fibre-based, which is a more natural way of feeding compared to a cereal-based diet. Horses have evolved to utilise a high fibre diet, using bacterial fermentation in a highly developed large intestine. Low levels of fibre, or poor quality fibre in the diet put horses at serious risk of problems such as colic and gastric ulcers.

We also produce a complete feed for donkeys – Mollichaff Donkey.

Bert Wins KBIS National Para-Dressage Championship

Our sponsored para-dressage rider, Bert (Roberta) Sheffield, was a popular winner of the KBIS Para-dressage Grade III Championship at the recent LeMieux British Dressage National Championships at Stoneleigh.

Bert was riding Double Agent (Darcy) owned by Frances Sheffield and scored an amazing 70.81% to take the crown.

Darcy was bought by Bert as a two-year-old after first spotting her as a foal in a picture, and unseen without a rug. But the gamble paid off and Darcy qualified for the Alltech World Equestrian Games in 2010 as a six-year-old at only her third show at Hartpury CPEDI with a Grade 1b rider,

Said Bert: “Darcy was fantastic today – she wasn’t fazed at all and handled the atmosphere very calmly. I was so pleased with the fluency of the test – it just felt right.”

Bert and Darcy

Bert, who has dual nationality and rides for Canada in international competitions, is currently ranked 2nd in the Para-equestrian Canada short list ranking and will finish this season 20th in the World FEI Para rankings. She is based in the UK in Lincolnshire and is on the Lincolnshire Elite Athlete Programme for 2014 as well as being Patron of Sport at Willoughby School, Bourne.

Said Frances Sheffield, Bert’s mother and owner of Darcy: “I am so proud of the pair of them!  Who would have thought that the gangly two-year-old Bert bought in 2009, that we turned out into the field with the Welsh Cobs would turn into such a superstar? Darcy is the perfect horse and Bert was so clever to see that from the photograph she first saw of Darcy as a foal on the Morgan Equine website, that this was the horse for her!  Darcy is only seven years old, and, after a break for both Bert and Darcy, we are looking forward to 2015 and all that brings, and then on to 2016 and Rio!   We have had a super week at the British Dressage National Championships – thank you to everyone.”
