Oats are the best cereal based feed for horses as highly palatable while at the same time providing a good source of energy in the form of fat, starch, crude fibre, high-quality protein and kernels that are easy for the horse to digest and chew. There is a variety of oats with different coloured husks in white (whitish yellow, to be exact), yellow and black. The colour of the oat husk, which varies from variety to variety, is not, however, an indication of the nutritional value of the oat. In Sweden, the production of oats consists mainly of the white oat variety. There is also a considerable difference in the fat content of various oat varieties. High-fat oats, for example, contain more than twice the amount of fat compared to regular oats.
A supplementary feed especially developed for foals and young horses fortified with high-quality protein, vitamins and minerals.
Always give your foal access to forage before giving it its concentrate feed and try to spread the concentrate feed over several meals a day.
- High protein content
- Easily digested with a high proportion of essential amino acids
- Fortified with extra minerals and vitamins
- Suitable for suckling and non-suckling foals
- GMO free raw materials, read more about GMO here
- Recyclable paper bag 20 kg
- Consider adding supplementary minerals to small-size concentrate feeds
- Climate labelled
- Pellets, 5 mm
If possible, give your young horse free access to forage. A suitable feed should be based on the nutritional value of the concentrate feed and the age, size and performance level of the horse.
A guideline for horses with an expected adult weight of 500 kg is 1-2 kg strong feed for the first 3-6 months, and 1-3 kg strong feed from 6 months to 2 years. A low strong feed allowance may need to be supplemented with extra mineral feed.
1 litre KRAFFT Foal = approx. 0.7 kg.

Wheat bran consists mostly of hulls and fragments of wheat that remain once the starchy kernel has been removed and as a result, contains less starch and more fiber than whole wheat. Wheat bran has good dietary qualities and is rich in B vitamins. Wheat bran has a high phosphorous content which is hard to digest for the horse.
The lucerne is a leguminous plant characterised by its high content of good quality protein and crude fiber. It is a drought-resistant plant that delivers up to three harvests. It is sometimes referred to as alfalfa. Lucerne is often included as a raw material in factory produced equine feeds and is also available to purchase as a raw material in the form of LUCERNE Chopped, LUCERNE Pellets and LUCERNE Pure Pellets. LUCERNE Chopped and LUCERNE Pellets contain molasses while LUCERNE Pure Pellets is completely free of added molasses.
Oat bran is, in fact, the bran of de-husked oats. It is known for its good dietary properties and high content of plant fibers and so-called beta-glucans.
Wheat has high contents of energy and protein but the protein is of mediocre quality and hence, not ideal for young horses. Wheat is a little sticky, a binding characteristic used in the production of pellets (together with molasses).
Pressed beet pulp is a product from the sugar industry that is high in fiber but low in sugar without any added molasses. It has a high content of easily degradable fibers, especially pectin, and is free of starch, contributing to a high-energy content while promoting a balanced microflora in the gut of the horse. It also contains relatively large amounts of lysine, an essential amino acid.
Like the alfalfa (lucerne), green meal has a high content of high-quality protein and crude fiber. Green meal and alfalfa combined result in a very palatable feed. In order to yield an optimum crop of the highest quality, the grass is usually harvested 3-4 times a year, depending on the weather.
Potato protein is, as the name indicates, protein derived from potatoes. Potato protein is a high-quality protein with a high content of the essential (vital) amino acids - methionine and lysine. Also, compared to other protein-rich feeds, potato protein is a highly digestible feed which allows the horse to absorb and benefit from most of the potato protein it eats. Potato protein is an essential ingredient in our products.
Sugar beet molasses is a high-energy by-product of the sugar industry. It is highly palatable and a natural binding agent in the production of pellets.
Sodium chloride, i.e. common salt, is used for adding salt to the feed.
Contains rapeseed oil made from rapeseed - a high-energy starch-free feed that adds energy in concentrated form.
