Timmy

Timmy is 6 years old at 17.2hh and had only recently been retired from racing in July 2020 and had been turned out into a paddock to spell. I got in contact with Hygain as he was underweight and after a few months of owning him I could not seem to get the weight on him, he also had a very dry and dull coat. In March of 2021, a Hygain equine nutrition assistant recommended new feeds and supplements to feed him. 

Within weeks I was starting to see improvement, he was gaining weight and his coat had begun changing. A few months on and Timmy is now in a healthy weight with a shiny coat and has begun his re-education for Eventing. 

I found the experience with the Hygain nutritionist very helpful, and they were very quick to respond. The process was very simple, just provided some information on Timmy and they organised a time to call to discuss feed options. I highly recommend the Hygain Nutritionist and I am very happy with the outcome.
