TopSpec is owned by experienced equine nutritionists whose only goal is to achieve excellence in every aspect of equine nutrition, from selection of the highest quality ingredients, creating innovative, excellent formulae, manufacturing to the highest European standards and providing the most comprehensive nutritional advice to clients.
TopSpec products are highly respected throughout the equine industry for their nutritional integrity. They have been used successfully by thousands of horse owners to improve the performance, condition and relaxation of their horses and ponies.
TopSpec CoolCondition Cubes provide ‘Non-Heating’ but conditioning calories and are ideal for horses that need condition without ‘fizz’.
TopSpec CoolCondition Cubes are designed to be added to a TopSpec feed balancer or supplement and therefore contain no added vitamins or trace-elements. That is why we call them a ‘blend,’ because they are a blend of straight raw materials rather than a complete feed. Adjusting the rate at which TopSpec CoolCondition Cubes are fed will have no effect on vitamin and trace-element intake as these are supplied by the balancer used.
One of the ways in which TopSpec CoolCondition Cubes are superior to most straights however, is that they have been supplemented with the major minerals calcium, sodium and magnesium. For example feeding these cubes instead of cooked barley/sugar beet, to working horses reduces or eliminates the need to add salt.
TopSpec CoolCondition Cubes are our top-selling blend. They combine the brilliant properties of being seriously cool and seriously conditioning, this is a very rare combination.
They are formulated without the use of any cereal grains, so they are not just ‘oat-free’ or ‘barley-free’ but completely cereal-grain-free. At the same time they have a good conditioning index of 12.5MJ/kg, equivalent to most cereal-containing conditioning compound feeds. The formula is very low in starch and sugar and high in fibre.
The calories in TopSpec CoolCondition Cubes work equally well as a source of ‘Non-Heating’ energy for maintenance, for gaining condition or for performance. These calories are balanced for protein with high-oil soya and linseed, and with available sources of calcium, magnesium and salt added.
The highly digestible fibre in these cubes helps to promote the beneficial bacteria in the hindgut therefore helping to maintain a healthy digestive system.
• TopSpec Feed Balancers provide the perfect start to feeding a cereal-grain-free, low sugar/starch diet. TopChop Alfalfa and/or unmolassed sugar beet shreds often provide a limited amount of suitable additional calories but when more calories are required or simple cubes are preferred TopSpec CoolCondition Cubes provide the answer.
• Ideal when extra condition is required and a ‘Non-Heating’ formula is essential.
• Perfect for any horses or ponies requiring a low-starch/high-fibre diet for other reasons e.g. muscle function, past history of laminitis or elderly horses needing to gain condition. Please contact our experienced nutritionists for feeding advice concerning specific nutritionally-related health problems for example advice about feeding a horse prone to ‘tying-up.’
TopSpec CoolCondition Cubes can be mixed with any other horse feeds including a TopChop, various forms of sugar beet pulp, and compound cubes/mixes.
TopSpec CoolCondition Cubes are available in 20kg sacks, the time they last will vary enormously from horse to horse depending on the circumstances but on average a sack will last a 500kg horse in medium work for ten days
TopSpec Comprehensive Feed Balancer is a very palatable ‘Non-Heating’ pelleted feed that is formulated without cereal grains and contains only low levels of sugar and starch. It contains many supplements combined with good quality protein to promote muscle development and topline. The supplements include a top-speciﬁcation broad-spectrum supplement and specialised supplements including a superb hoof supplement, generous levels of anti-oxidants and sophisticated digestive aids.
This superb speciﬁcation allows horses to utilise far more nutrients from the forage and straights in their diet, which usually means that their hard feed intake can be reduced with many resulting beneﬁts. A complete speciﬁcation is freely available.
TopSpec Comprehensive Feed Balancer is a very ﬂexible, nutrient-rich feed designed to balance the rations of most horses and ponies simply by adjusting the rate at which it is fed and the products it is fed with.
When TopSpec Comprehensive Feed Balancer is fed there is therefore often no need to add any further supplements, other than salt or electrolytes for sweating horses. The addition of e.g. blood tonics, yeast supplements/digestive aids, or hoof supplements is a totally unnecessary expense, ineffective and potentially harmful.
