Can horses cope with sudden cold weather?
Horses can survive and even thrive in what we consider to be very inhospitable conditions, but they do need plenty of feed to fuel them and keep them warm.
Well, summer came at last, about 5 weeks late! However, some lovely hay was made last month so we should not have to worry too much about hay shortages this coming winter. Grazing has not been universally good, partly due to the horses eating it as fast as it was trying to grow earlier on in the season, so if you are now short of grass, we always have our Blue Bag Grass Pellets as an economical, lower calorie option and for horses needing a bit more, such as mares with foals, eventers, dressage horses and so on, Red Bag Grass Pellets are the high calorie, high energy option with more total energy than oats!
This year, we have harvested grass from our own special blend of native-type grasses for our Blue Bag Grass Pellets which is great news and demonstrates the trust we and our specialist suppliers have in each other. We are certain your horses will love the more interesting flavour due to the combination of grasses and you will also love the fabulous new-mown hay aroma!
This is our grass for Blue Bag Grass Pellets, a couple of weeks before it was harvested.
And this is going to be Red Bag Grass Pellets
We may love our lucerne feeds, but there is room in our hearts for grass, too! After all, it is the mainstay of most horses feeding and so long as you use it appropriately, especially if your horse is metabolically challenged, it is a truly valuable feed.
