Dunstan Resolve®
  • Dunstan Resolve® is a low starch feed ideal for horses that do not tolerate high starch rations for behavioural or physiological reasons.

    As a semi-concentrate muesli, Dunstan Resolve® has elevated inclusion of key nutrients, therefore making it ideal for ‘good doers’ and those that do not require the higher intakes of a traditional ‘full feed’.

    Dunstan Resolve® contains Melofeed®, a natural source of primary antioxidants that assists in maintaining cartilage integrity for joint health in the performance horse. The antioxidant properties of Melofeed® also benefit equine muscle membrane, helping to prevent muscle lesions that may occur in horses during intense training.

    Dunstan Resolve® includes the highly digestible ‘Super fibres’ Sugarbeet and Soya Hulls, providing quality fibre for equine digestive health and ‘cool’ energy for controlled performance.

    Lupins are a key ingredient in Dunstan Resolve®. Lupins are low starch, calorie dense and provide energy to perform while maintaining a focused mind for the competition horse. The high fibre nature of Lupins results in efficient hindgut digestion, an essential benefit in equine diets.

    Dunstan Resolve® includes an elevated level of Biotin to assist with hoof growth and hardness.

    An elevated inclusion of Vegetable Oil in Dunstan Resolve® provides a concentrated source of ‘cool calories’ to meet energy demands of the sporthorse for both body condition and performance. The addition of Vegetable Oil also enhances skin and coat condition.

    Organic Trace Minerals and Selenium Yeast ensure maximum availability of these important minerals.

    Natural Vitamin E is included in for improved bio-availability.

    Dunstan Resolve®’s low-starch, Oat-free formulation, combined with the elevated levels of the key antioxidants Selenium, Vitamin E coupled with the addition of Melofeed®, make it an ideal form of supplementary feed for horses prone to ‘tying-up’.

    • It is advisable to split the daily hard-feed into at least two feeds, preferable 3-4, but feed no more than 2.0 kg of Dunstan Resolve® per meal.
    • Always introduce a new feed gradually over a period of 7 – 10 days, working up to the desired feed intake, taking into consideration body condition and work level.

    General Notes:
    Always ensure the horse has access to clean drinking water.

    High Copper levels in Dunstan Resolve® make it unsuitable for feeding to sheep.
