Product description

A 1kg healthy, low sugar fibre block with endless uses. Packed full of essential vitamins and minerals together with herbs naturally sought by horses in the field, red clover and nettle, Vitamunch blocks can help in many ways:

  • As a boredom breaker
  • Encouraging natural foraging in the stable when turnout is limited
  • Topping up essential vitamins & minerals
  • Providing a healthy, low sugar but high fibre snack
  • To slow food intake with its highly compressed nature
  • As a smaller (and tastier!) alternative to hay when travelling
  • Keeping horses occupied at competition

What inspired this Vitamunch fibre block?

As a company focused on the horses’ wellbeing, we thought it was only right to look at the mental and nutritional wellbeing of our equine friends too!

What is in Vitamunch?

Not just a simple fibre block, Vitamunch fibre blocks are made from timothy hay. They are also fortified with essential vitamins and minerals, while containing tasty herbs naturally sought by horses in the field:

Red Clover – a traditional tonic, helps skin conditions
Nettles – known for their effect on the circulation, a source of vitamin C and iron.
12 Vitamins, including A, B, C, D, E, as well as biotin, copper and zinc!
Timothy Hay – naturally high in fibre and low in sugar, and super tasty!
*one Vitamunch provides 50% of the published daily requirements for vitamins & trace elements based on a 500kg horse in light work.

Who is Vitamunch for?

All horses can enjoy a Vitamunch meadow fibre block due to its high fibre and low sugar content, including those prone to laminitis. It is particularly useful:

  • As a boredom breaker
  • Encouraging natural foraging in the stable when turnout is limited
  • Topping up essential vitamins & minerals
  • To slow food intake with its highly compressed nature
  • As a smaller (and tastier!) alternative to hay when travelling
  • Keeping horses occupied at competition
  • Horses on box rest
  • As a distraction when companions go out

Ways to feed Vitamunch hay blocks.

There is no right or wrong way, it’s whatever works for your horse.

As its so tasty, most horses are keen to try gobble it down. Feeding Vitamunch in a specialised munch net can help slow down those eager feeders. You can also place it in the middle of their normal haynet so they spend time trying to hunt down the tasty treat!

For oldies whose teeth don’t quite do as well as they used to, or all horses in the winter, soaking the munch block will see it evolve into a warm, tasty bowl full of delicious goodness, right in front of your eyes!

It can of course be fed in the field or stable on its own on the ground or in a bowl. The highly compressed nature of the block will naturally slow eating down and act as a boredom breaker too!

Ingredients

Feeding guide: Feed up to 2 blocks per day

Ingredients and Nutritional Value:

Composition:

Timothy grass, high temperature dried (95%), alfalfa, high temperature dried, salt, nettle (0.3%), red clover (0.3%). *One vita munch provides 50% of the published daily requirements for vitamins and trace elements based on 500kg horse in light work.

The herbal ingredients for Vitamunch Meadow have been changed to remove the presence of Red Clover as a result of our Supplier not being able to secure a reliable quality-assured supply.  We have therefore increased the level of Nettles to compensate until we are able to resolve the supply issue.
