LMF Senior Low Carb contains fiber, energy, vitamins, minerals (including chelated trace minerals and organic selenium) and yeast culture to aid in digestion. LMF Senior Low Carb is formulated to reduce starch and sugar intake for older horses that may be sensitive to carbohydrate related diseases. Critical nutrients are presented in highly palatable form that horses readily consume. LMF Senior Low Carb also contains glucosamine for joint health.

Chelated Organic Trace Minerals

Chelated Organic Trace Minerals

These proteinated minerals allow for maximum absorption and retention by the horse. They are designed to match as closely as possible the naturally complexed trace element compounds found in forages and grains.

100% Organic Selenium

100% Organic Selenium

Organic Selenium is more bio-available than inorganic Selenium and is better retained in the body. This allows the horse to build nutrient reserves against periods of increased demand with less risk of toxicity.

Added Amino Acids

Added Amino Acids

Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. Think of the proteins as words and the amino acids as the letters that form the words. If an animal is trying to form a protein to build or repair tissue and an amino acid is missing, the protein cannot be formed. LMF feeds use high quality protein sources in all of our feeds. Additionally, LMF feeds are supplemented with two of the most critical amino acids, Lysine and Methionine.

Natural Vitamin E

Natural Vitamin E

Natural Vitamin E, which comes from plant oils, is an important fat soluble vitamin that is not produced by the horse’s body. This vitamin must be obtained through external sources like forage, grain and supplements. Vitamin E: acts as an antioxidant, helps keep the immune system strong, and helps the body use Vitamin K.

Omega 3 and Omega 6 Fatty Acids

Omega 3 and Omega 6 Fatty Acids

Omega fatty acids are unsaturated fatty acids that are components of oils commonly added to horse diets. Omega 6 fatty acids are used in the body to help mediate inflammation. Omega 3 fatty acid is used to produce intermediaries that suppress inflammation. Both Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids are important in a horse’s diet for hoof health, reproductive success, allergy and immune conditions, respiratory conditions, and exercise recovery.

Yeast Culture

Yeast Culture

Yeast Cultures work to enhance fiber digestion and nutrient absorption allowing for increased for enhanced animal performance. By improving feed efficiency yeast cultures also help to maintain body and coat conditions in horses.

Glucosamine

Glucosamine

Glucosamine is a natural substance that is found in the cartilage tissue associated with unique joints. It is made from a series of sugar and protein molecules. Once incorporated into joint cartilage it works with other substances to absorb shock and lubricate the joint. Glucosamine has been shown to function in the joint as an anti-inflammatory substance. Glucosamine is added to help horses feel more comfortable and move easier.

LMF SENIOR LOW CARB

Feed LMF Senior Low Carb along with free choice plain salt or iodized salt and 2-3 pounds per day of long stemmed hay according to the following table.

POUNDS TO FEED DAILY PER 100 LB. BODY WEIGHT

  • Senior Horse – Chewing Difficulties: 1.5 to 1.8 lbs.
  • Maintenance – Adult Horses: 1.3 to 1.5 lbs.
  • Performance – Light Work: 1.5 to 1.7 lbs.
  • Performance – Moderate Work: 1.6 to 1.8 lbs.
  • Performance – Intense Work: 1.8 to 2.0 lbs.

For mature horses that are naive to the LMF Senior Low Carb, who may be offered the feed for the first time, for horses that aggressively consume their feed, and for horses with chewing difficulties it is recommended the LMF Senior Low Carb be soaked in water for 20 minutes prior to feeding. Add enough water to completely submerge the LMF Senior Low Carb.  The amount of water to submerge the feed will vary depending on the amount of feed provided to the horse.

WARNING: Feed LMF Horse Feeds to horses according to the feeding instructions provided on the feed tag, or upon the advice of your nutritionist. Do not add other sources of selenium that cause total dietary selenium (forage and grain, combined) to exceed 0.3 ppm. Feeding additional vitamin or mineral supplements is not recommended when feeding LMF Feed products according to feeding instructions.
