Sainfoin is a premium forage alternative to lucerne and grass. Known as 'healthy hay', Sainfoin has long been recognised for its many benefits.

Our Sainfoin is rich in natural minerals and trace elements. They are a good source of condensed tannins, which aid digestion of protein. Sainfoin is suitable for all horses, and can be very beneficial when fed with hay and grass as a nutritious alternative and to add a variety of flavour.

Feeding Instructions

SainfoinBrix should be fed whole and dry.

Feed according to requirements and condition.

Use up to 1 block a day per 100kg bodyweight, i.e 5 blocks per day for a 500kg horse.

We are very keen to promote natural feeding of our native Highlands as they are not built to cope with rich higher sugar diets that you see in many other feeds. We also needed a straightforward and economical diet that could be used for our mares, stallions, foals and youngstock that would promote muscle development and bone growth without adding excess fat or fizz. With Simple System we have found exactly that.

Feeding the poor doer in winter

Winter can be a challenging time for our poor doers; grass quality declines offering much less nutritional value than in the warmer seasons and the cold weather makes use of energy stores for generating heat and staying warm.
