Re: Free Choice supplement for mares and foals on pasture and free choice hay

Hello Hannah,

I would go with the ADM Pro-Vita Min 20-5 (5% fat) or the 18-12 (12% fat) depending on your horses' fat needs. If they are exercised more intensely, get the higher fat version.

This one seems to be the best in terms of completeness.

All the best,

Thank you for the input. Unfortunatly I cannot find anyone locally who can get that product.

I can get ADM Pro-Vita min, their Grostrong minerals or Equilix,

Can you tell me what the better product is?
