    Very Spooky Horse!

    Pure Fibre Balance - The fibre feed balance

    Been using their feeds for about 18 months and love them, so do my ponies ... mine have been on fibre balance this winter, with a bit of fast fibre...their coats are glossy and they've kept their weight a little too well :)
