The skeleton is the foundation of the body, which provides support, protection for the organs, levers for movement and acts as a mineral store for the body. Bones will naturally adapt to the stress created by work or exercise by becoming denser where loading is greatest. If the correct vitamins and minerals are not available, bones will become weak or brittle, increasing the risk of injury or fracture.
In brood mares, if sufficient levels of the bone developing vitamins and minerals are not available, the stores within her own bones will be used to create the skeleton of the foal. If these are not replenished it can cause brittle bones in the mare and lead to growth problems in the foal.
Heavy grazing, farming and fertilisation can leave land lacking in these vital elements and providing the correct nutrition for bone strength and development is vital for every horse, especially the brood mare, young stock and competition horse.
Feed Better Bones in combination with Cortaflex to support joint and bone condition for horses of all ages.

Equine America Message
Equine America are pleased to announce that we are certified members of the following Quality Assurance Schemes:
By complying with these externally audited schemes, we demonstrate our commitment to providing top quality equine feed for our customers.
What is UFAS & BETA NOPS?
To the consumer, UFAS accreditation means:
1. Full traceability of ingredients - from the packaged product right back to buying in the raw materials.
Naturally Occurring Prohibited Substances (NOPS) can occur in feed or supplements as a result of a natural presence or inadvertent cross-contamination during processing. All substances classed as NOPS are included in a defined list and featured in the BETA NOPS quality assurance schemes. Companies audited under these schemes work to defined standards to help reduce the risk of feed contamination by NOPS. Companies signed up to the BETA NOPS scheme can make horse feed only on a dedicated non-medicated production line in order to reduce the risk of cross-contamination http://www.beta-uk.org/pages/feed-safety/beta-nops-scheme.php
