The Donkey Sanctuary has partnered with equine feed specialists, TopSpec, to develop the first forage balancer specially created for donkeys. The product is designed to promote general health, greatly improve hoof quality and produce a supple skin with a strong coat. It also helps to maintain a healthy immune system.
Nicola Tyler of TopSpec says “Donkeys have evolved to do well on a very low intake of energy and protein. The forage that donkeys eat in UK homes today is very different to that found in their natural desert environment. Trials at The Donkey Sanctuary have shown that donkeys respond well to micronutrient supplementation. TopSpec Donkey Forage Balancer provides a tailored formula of micronutrients in a palatable pellet, making it simple for owners to improve the quality of life enjoyed by their donkeys.”
“We are very pleased to be associated with The Donkey Sanctuary and to donate £1 from each bag of Donkey Forage Balancer sold, to support their important welfare work helping suffering donkeys and mules worldwide.”
