Enrich Plus is a concentrated, pelleted ration balancing horse feed that may be fed as a horse’s sole ration along with quality hay or pasture to provide the proper balance of protein, vitamins and minerals without unnecessary calories. It can also be fed with unfortified whole grains.

Enrich Plus Ration Balancing Feed is Best Suited for:

  • Easy Keepers: Easy Keepers who maintain body weight and condition on hay or pasture alone, or are not able to eat the minimum recommended amount of another feed without gaining unwanted weight. 
  • Young, Growing Horses: Young, Growing Horses who may require concentrated nutrition to support growth and development, but with fewer calories to support slower growth rate or reduced body condition when recommended.
  • Stallions & Early Gestation Mares: Stallions & Early Gestation Mares that may need a more concentrated source of nutrition. Also appropriate for working horses who may need a protein, vitamin and mineral supplementation.

Feeding Directions
Purina® Enrich Plus® ration balancing horse feed is designed to complement and fortify hay or pasture. The feeding recommendations are based on the following assumptions: an expected mature weight of approximately 1,100 pounds* and the horse is consuming at least 2.0%** of its body weight in hay or pasture (dry matter).

*For horses that do not approximate this expected mature weight (such as miniature horses, ponies and draft horses), feeding rates for mature horses at maintenance can be estimated based on 0.1 - 0.2 lbs Purina® Enrich Plus® per 100 lbs body weight per day.

**Always provide a minimum of 1% of the horse’s body weight in hay or the equivalent in pasture.

Growth***

Age (months) Weight (lbs) Enrich Plus® (lbs/day) Hay (lbs/day)
4 - 8 400 - 700 2.5 - 3.0 8 -14
9 - 17 700 - 900 2.0 - 2.5 14 - 18
18 -24 900 - 1000 2.0 18 - 20

 

 

 

 

***More rapid rates of growth can be achieved by adding grain to the diet. However, given the inherent nutritional inconsistencies of straight grain diets, more rapid rates of gain are more safely and successfully achieved by using one of the completely fortified and balanced horse feeds by Purina. Contact your local Purina retailer for the feed that best suits your needs. The nutritional needs of foals less than four months of age are better satisfied with products such as Purina® Ultium® Growth, Strategy® GX or Omolene #300® horse feeds.

Maintenance & Reproduction****
(based on 1,100 pound mature weight)

Horses at maintenance and broodmares through the 2nd trimester of gestation 1.0 - 2.0  22


****The additional calories needed during the last trimester of gestation and during lactation can be provided by adding grain to the diet. However, given the inherent nutritional inconsistencies of straight grain diets, a more nutritionally balanced and desirable source of calories can be provided by using an appropriate Purina® horse feed designed to meet the needs of gestating and lactating broodmares. Contact your local Purina retailer for the feed that best suits your needs.

Moderate Performance*****

*****The additional calorie and nutrient demands of such horses may be better satisfied with products such as Purina® Ultium® Competition, Strategy® GX, Strategy® Healthy Edge®, Omolene #100® or #200®, #400® or #500® horse feeds.

Best Results

For horses sensitive to dietary soluble carbohydrates, please consult with a veterinarian or nutritionist for a recommended diet. The recommended feeding rate should not be exceeded. Do not feed more than 0.5 pounds per 100 pounds of body weight in one serving. Do not feed free-choice.
 
Feed at regular times; divide total daily feeding into at least two servings with three daily servings preferred. Reduce and/or delay feeding a horse that is hot, excited or showing pain, fever or diarrhea. Be sure to weigh your feed using a scale. A small scale can be purchased in the fishing department of many sporting goods stores.
 
Feed horse in a natural position from troughs placed at normal head height or lower. Have plenty of fresh, clean water available at all times. Provide your horse with access to salt.
 
Maintain an effective control program for internal parasites. Be sure that horses are free of dental problems. Prevent the rapid eating by the horses of any feedstuff. Observe your horses' condition daily. Consult your veterinarian if any problems arise.

Changing To

Make the feed change gradually over a period of 7 to 10 days. Changes in the rate of feeding should not exceed 1 pound per day for each horse. Mix the new feed with the old, gradually increasing the amount of the new feed while decreasing an equal amount of the old.

Caution

Follow label directions. Store in a dry, well-ventilated area protected from rodents and insects. Do not feed moldy or insect-infested feed to animals as it may cause illness, performance loss or death.  Feeding added selenium resulting in total diet levels in excess of 0.3 ppm is prohibited.
