Dressage and show horses who like to show off, during training as well as competition
Closet divas who have always felt that black or chestnut are just sooo staid
Unicorns needing a touch of block colour rather than all those stars and spots
Baileys are delighted to announce their latest exciting new range, Matchy Matchy Mixes. Formulated to deliver targeted colour to the legs, mane and tail, through the inclusion of specially patented nature-identical pigments, Matchy Matchy Mixes will produce lustrous matching tones to fully complement many of the most fashionable accessory sets on the market.
Incorporating the latest edible pigment technology, Matchy Matchy Mixes are high in fibre and low in starch so are an ideal base diet for horses working at all levels. Each then contains a tailored blend of exotic herbs and bacteria-friendly pigments which, when fermented in the hindgut, are able to attach to the specific keratins found in the coarser hair of the mane and tail. In a unique iron-chelation process, these pigments will also gather in the limb extremities and be expressed in the feather and hair from knee and hock down, with particular depths of colour being shown in those equines with white socks or stockings.
After a gradual introduction, colour takes just 24 hours to develop so a little forward planning may be necessary to co-ordinate saddlecloths, ear covers and riding attire, while the ultra-creative may choose contrasting colour sets to enhance their equine’s new radiant coloured locks. The possibilities are endless! Whims can change, however, and colour will also fade over 48 hours, when Matchy Matchy Mix is withdrawn, yet all feeds in the range are compatible so can be immediately substituted to allow the development of an alternative palette.
Choose from four colour variants, for 2021, developed with an eye to the season’s newest colourways, and tweaked by Nutritionists to tone in with your favourite new shade.
Blue Hues – match the cooler shades of azure and turquoise in current summery blue collections
Posh Pinks – this season sees dusky rose and muted mulberry tones giving a classy touch
Graceful Greens – from subtle sages to more traditional racing greens, this mix will tone with all
Racy Reds – a little less pillar box and a dash more chilli, add some deeper tones with this season’s blend
Like all Baileys feeds, more than one Matchy Matchy Mix can be fed together to give further options from lilac tones to olive greens. For subtler tones, Matchy Matchy Mixes can be fed at less than recommended levels and topped up with a balancer to ensure a full balanced diet.
