FEEDING GUIDE
LUPIN FIBRE CUBES MUST BE SOAKED PRIOR TO FEEDING

For overweight horses and ponies, Lupin Fibre Cubes can be fed in small amounts to add fibre and serve as a base for concentrates or supplements.

For horses and ponies needing weight gain or in work, Lupin Fibre Cubes can be fed in larger amounts to help supply energy and hydration.

Lupin Fibre Cubes Soaking Guide

DAMPENED:
Add 1-part dry T&R Lupin Fibre Cubes to a minimum of 2-parts water by dry weight and soak to the desired consistency. Always measure the dry weight of your Cubes prior to soaking.

SOAKED:
To aid hydration, increase the amount of water added to dry Cubes for a sloppier consistency. We recommend feeding Lupin Fibre Cubes soaked for horses that suffer from choke.

Lupin Fibre Cubes can be made in advance. Store in the fridge, and feed within 24 hours of soaking.
