Shamrock Horse Block

Shamrock Horse Block is designed specifically for foals and horses and is free from naturally occurring prohibited substances (NOPS). The Horse Block is formulated to promote red blood cell synthesis, blood circulation, energy production, bone and hoof conditioning, muscle contraction, fertility and appearance (coat and skin). The Shamrock Horse Block is designed to meet every nutritional requirement of the animal and can be used all year round.

Horsed need a balanced mineral, vitamin and trace element supplement for optimum performance. The correct vitamin and mineral supplement in the correct proportion is vital to your horse’s health. Too much of one particular mineral can detrimental to the health of your horse.

The Shamrock Horse Tub is the only tub sold worldwide that contains organic Calcium derived from Lithothamnium Calcareous. Apart from balancing the diet of the horse, it also improves the bone structure naturally. This leads to less injuries and breakages in the horse’s bones.

The correct balance of Phosphorous and calcium is important in the diet of the horse. It should be 1:1. Grain diets are very high in phosphorous so need to be balanced with high quality calcium.

Shamrock carries all the trace elements an amino acids derived from seaweed which make them more bio-available to the body.

I started using the horse mineral tubs and the mares and fillies using these tubs have tremendous coats and are in great condition. What has surprised me is how long the tubs last once the horses have been using them for a while."
