What young horses need as corner stones of a healthy growth are mainly proteins of good quality. These proteins provide essential amino acids. Some of those amino acids, the horse can produce on its own, but not the essential amino acids. These need to be ingested via the feed. We can find them in certain resources such as soy, milk powder, flax seed, …Of course these are the building blocks upon which Lannoo Breeding Junior are constructed. On top of that, this concentrate contains all the essential minerals and vitamins a growing horse so badly needs. Good feed is one thing, but in order to make a beautiful foal grow into a healthy horse, youngsters need space and movement. It’s crucial for them to be outside and moving for as much time as possible
