FF is a fibre replacement and Topspec Lite is a balancer so really different things. You would have to feed mre FF to get the same vits. Sorry if you already knew this and I have butted in !!!:)

Northants/Leics border
A bag of FF around my area is £7.10; to feed at reccommended rate a bag for my 14.1 hh welshie would last 13 days;
A bag of Top Spec lite balancer is £27 which lasts 50 days;
So If I use half a scoop of FF which 2 bags will last me 52 days and a balancer; it will cost £27 + £14.20 = £41.20

I can buy nearly 6 bags of FF for that which will last me, fed at the reccommended rate, 6 x 13 = 78 days

Confused.com :confused: :D

So when the balancer is done, I'm going to feed 3/4 a scoop of ff twice a day, then no need for any other feeds at all :cool:

Yes you do, Fast Fibre won't give sufficient vits & mins. To be honest if he's fat at this time of year I'd cut out the Fast Fibre and Top Spec Zero and just feed the balancer.

Thanks for your help, iv only taken him on this week, he,s been overfed all winter, he,s only having 4.5 kg of soaked hay a day with 4 to 5 hours grazing most days but am looking to fence a small area of & cut that down to1 to 2 hour. I havent had a horse for over 30 years and things have changed sooooo much ! !

What's your grazing like? He may better having more time out than stood in a stable, at least out he's moving around which means he's using more calories and keeping his metabolism more active. If needs be could he wear a muzzle when out if the grass is too much for him? Stabled they just stand still doing nothing, that isn't good for them.

In that case try to find time to exercise twice a day because being stood in that long really won't do him any favours.
