Dengie supports “World’s oldest horse”
15hh gelding, Shayne, is at the fab age of 51 years old<br><br>

Shayne, a 51-year-old 15hh gelding, who lives at the Remus Memorial Horse Sanctuary in Essex hit the headlines this month with claims that he was the world’s oldest horse.

Dengie nutritionist Tracey Hammond, who has provided nutritional advice for Shayne and other equines at the Brentwood sanctuary says:

"Like most old horses, Shayne has a bit of arthritis and some dentition problems, but he is in pretty good shape doing well on his diet of Hi-Fi Senior and Alfalfa Pellets fed as mash.

"I visit Remus regularly to review the horses’ diets and to offer help and advice to founder Sue Burton’s fantastic team of staff and volunteers.

"Dengie’s range of high-fibre feeds is perfect for all horses and ponies, but for older ones like Shayne who struggle to chew, Dengie Hi-Fi Senior is perfect. It combines high temperature dried grass and alfalfa, is particularly useful as it is soft and easy to chew, and can be used to completely replace the forage part of the ration."

- Nutritional advice for older horses is available from the Dengie Feedline:0845 345 5115.
