You know your horse’s first years are very important. Proper growth and development depend upon strong genetics, a nurturing environment, and good nutrition.
That’s why the Ph.D. Equine Nutritionists at the Purina Animal Nutrition Center formulated Purina® Equine Junior® horse feed to take the guesswork out of feeding your growing horse. The formula was developed to give your young horse a strong head start with the proper balance of nutrients to promote optimal growth and development. And because Purina® Equine Junior® horse feed is a complete feed with high-quality forage built in, it eliminates nutrient variability of hay or pasture and promotes a consistent diet for weanlings and yearlings.
Equine Junior® horse feed is formulated with Purina’s proprietary high-fat Amplify® nugget—a blend of vegetable oils, flaxseed and rice bran for an optimal fatty acid profile—to support development, shine and bloom.
