Back in the summer, we were contacted by the lovely people at SPILLERS to see if we would like to review a balancer feed for Ben. I’ve never used a balancer before as, despite being a delicate thoroughbred, he has always been quite a good doer and has seemed to get everything he needs from the grass in the summer and simple chaff and mix in the winter.

Now that he’s getting older though, it’s more difficult to keep that glossy coat and at times over the last year or so, he has looked a bit dull and, well, old. He is 25, so we’ll let him off with that, but I was really keen to try the balancer to see if it could help to give him those nutrients that he seemed to be missing out on.
