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.
We are very pleased to say Red Bag Grass Pellets are now available to order once again. As a precautionary measure we recalled two batches of Red Bag Grass Pellets earlier in the year due to an abnormal high result in our mycotoxins screen. Whilst we were investigating the issue, we felt the recall was the most responsible approach. Your horses’ health and welfare is always at the forefront of everything we do. Red Bag Grass Pellets are tested for mycotoxins throughout harvest by our grower, long before the product reaches our bags. Our routine testing, out of harvest season, allows us to check other potential risks, as well as a confirmation of our grower’s testing routines. After further extensive testing across every batch of Red Bag Grass Pellets, and rigorous re-testing of the original two batches, we simply could not repeat the anomaly result. Our investigation included more detailed and time-consuming testing, as well as an examination of the original testing methods. We also conducted an in-depth review with our grower of the harvesting, drying and storage methods used. Their extensive records were as thorough as we have come to expect and reinforce the confidence we have in their product quality. Our Red Bag Grass Pellets are safe to feed and adhere to our strict quality criteria. We thank you for your patience and understanding during our investigation. We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience this has caused you and for the disruption to your horses’ feeding routines. Simple System is dedicated to bringing you the very best feed for your horses. We pride ourselves on our ethics and quality and will always be honest with our customers.
