From an also-ran to a champion

12 months ago Vicky Edinborough visited the sales and came home with a six month old foal called Elvis.  Looking very poor Vicky described Elvis as ‘ready to give up’ as he stood with his head hanging down so decided to start him on ReadyMash Extra.

The high fibre content in the ReadyMash Extra is very well suited to horses such as Elvis that require a diet that is sympathetic on the digestive system, with the high level of oils and milk powders helping encourage weight gain and condition.  As Elvis was feeling very run-down the glucose powders found in the ReadyMash Extra were also vital in helping to supply an excellent energy source aiding the return to health.

In December, just two months later his condition had improved so much that Vicky decided to take him to his first show where he took first and Champion Foal.  Vicky’s run of good results continued as Elvis grew stronger with numerous placings throughout the summer, always coming home with a rosette.  At 18 months of age Elvis is now a confident youngster with a great future ahead of him.
