Purina® Introduces New Feed for Miniature Horses and Ponies specially formulated to meet the unique nutritional needs of miniature horses and ponies

Through extensive research, Purina has learned how certain nutritional advantages can help miniature horses and ponies be more active and productive during their lifetimes. That’s why Purina® recently developed Miniature Horse and Pony Horse Feed, a feed specifically formulated to meet the unique nutritional needs of miniature horses and ponies.

“Introducing a new feed for miniatures and ponies is Purina’s way of providing the best nutritional options to support a variety of horse lifestyles and needs,” said Chris Goodwin, marketing manager, Land O’Lakes Purina Feed. “We are excited to offer this high-quality, nutritionally-balanced horse feed for those who love and own mini breeds.”

Purina Miniature Horse and Pony Horse Feed is designed for miniature breeds who tend to be more metabolically efficient than large horses but still require the nutrition necessary for growth, gestation, lactation, breeding and competition. The formulation contains the Purina Amplify® Nugget—a palatable, high-fat, extruded particle that provides calories for weight gain, performance and lactation. With added amino acids, the Amplify Nugget helps promote proper development of muscle, bone, skin, hair and hooves. The feed contains beet pulp inside the pellet as an excellent source of fermentable fiber for slow-release energy. It also provides 100-percent of the required nutrients for horses when fed as directed so no additional supplements are necessary. It’s a premium formulation with high quality ingredients for excellent palatability.

Purina’s Miniature Horse and Pony Horse Feed also offers the confidence of the Purina FeedGuard® Nutrition System—one of the industry’s most innovative and exacting quality assurance programs.

Horse owners can now try Purina’s Miniature Horse and Pony Horse Feed as part of the Purina 60-Day See the Difference Challenge. Animal lovers can sign up for the challenge online at www.Purinadifference.com.
