Q: How long will a 3kg bag last my 500kg horse?
A: A 3kg bag will last about one month. The recommended feeding rate is 100gm/day for a 500kg horse. Ideally it should be used to top dress two feeds, but it can be fed just once a day. A measuring scoop is included in the packaging.
Q: What is the Hanley Formula. Does it include any banned substances?
A: The Hanley Formula is simply protein from cows milk ultra filtered into building blocks , there is no way a banned substance can be included
Hanley Formula FAQ
Philippa Hanley answers some common questions about the Hanley Formula..............
Q: Could you please advise suitability of product Hanley formula for 14.1 Arab/English Riding Pony X susceptible to laminitis. Lost topline, looks poor. Daily 5 kgs meadowhay; 1/12 kgs feed, 1 x daily, made up of the following: 2 scoops lucerne/oaten chaff; 2 cups (before soaking) of Easy Beet, 400 grms NRM Balancer (Pelletized vitamin and mineral mix), 1 tspn Alleviate C (magnesium/calcium powder), 1 tbspn Bomac Feed Aid (mycotoxin binder, probiotic) powder. Has access to a little grass and on a track system for exercise. Hacked out 1x2 weekly on roads. Just seems lacklustre, but due to his laminitic tendencies don't dare pump a lot of feed into him!! Would this product help without introducing anything that might spike insulin levels? Many thanks.
A: Assuming that he has been wormed regularly and that his dentist is happy with his dental health then supplementing his feed with The Hanley Formula would be very appropriate.
Q: Hi, was just wondering about using this product on my horse. does having this much protein have any health affects on the horse for example if you pump protein into a human it can raise blood fat levels, cause the human to lose fat/weight, heart problems and kidney problems? is this dose of protein significant enough to have any health effects on my horse? my horse is a TB and very hard to keep weight on, when we feed him a lot he gets very fizzy. will this product make him more fizzy?
A: Good question, The Hanley Formula is very high in protein around 78 - 80 % with a 98 % digestibility . When feeding at the common recommended dose of 100 grams per day , this is 80 grams of protein you are adding to your horses diet. 80 grams extra protein is not going to cause any of the problems you are listing below .
The protein % is of the horses whole daily diet . Average horse ( 500 kg ) should consume minimum 10 kgs of diet daily ( pasture , hay , hard feed ) . Depending on the horse , workload and other feeds . This is approx 2% of body weight as feed Protein needs are 8 - 12 % of this daily diet of 10 kgs , adding 100 grams of HF as its 80 grams protein % won't raise daily protein % by even 1%.
Please also keep in mind the digestibility of all your other horse feeds is measured in a crude protein %, this % is not available to your horse but is the result when tested in a laboratory . So if you are following crude protein % 's on your feed tags your horse will not be getting this much. Adding The Hanley Formula daily works well because it will raise the digestibility of your horses feed.
The most important thing when considering protein for your horse is the quality not quantity . Quality is measured by amino acid profile and The Hanley Formula has the highest balanced ratio of amino acids available for horses.
A: None of the mentioned supplements are amino acid concentrates so yes it is recommended to keep feeding everything as normal. Simply top dress with 100 grams of Hanley Formula per day. 50 grams each feed if twice daily feeding or 100 grams in the one feed if only once day.Q: I have read that milk powder is bad for horses so why are you recommending that I feed the Hanley Formula?
A: The Hanley Formula is the protein isolated from cows milk, with all the lactose and the majority of fat removed. The protein is then ultra - filtered which cleaves it into individual and double amino acids ( the building blocks of your horses whole body). It is this ultra filtration which gives The Hanley Formula its high digestibility. After the ultra-filtering the formula exists in a form (amino acids) ready to be absorbed straight into the bloodstream from the small intestine.Q: You say the Hanley Formula is an Amino Acid Concentrate, does it contain anything else?
A: The Hanley Formula has no ingredients other than amino acids and the few minerals naturally attached to these, please click here for a full breakdown.Q: I am worried about feeding a milk powder. What if my horse is lactose intolerant?
A: The Hanley Formula is perfect for lactose intolerance, has no banned substances (approx 200 - 300 horses race each week on it)
We don't normally feed more than 10% protein by volume, so a high quality source of amino acids would be useful to us.
I also note the following claim is made for performance. This is especially relevant to endurance horses. Could you please tell me what is known of the mechanism by feeding Hanley formula results in lower HR ?
A: You can simply top dress your normal feed with 50 - 100 grams of Hanley Formula per day depending on your other feeds . I'd recommend feeding a little extra fibre and this drops your total protein percentage. .You say you don't go over 10 % total protein, actually its hard to gauge this as animal feeds are always reported as crude protein levels . Crude protein is not whats available for your horse to utilise. So your 10 % crude will more likely be 6 - 8 % digestible protein that your horse can use.
For this reason The Hanley Formula with its 98% digestibility is ideal to enhance the quality (digestibility and amino acid profile ) of your normal feed ration.
