This Month on the Feed Line - Helping Horses in Hotter Weather

We humans may be enjoying the heat however sudden high temperatures do not allow our�horses to adapt to the temperature change and so they are more likely to suffer.

In hot weather the horses temperature, breathing and heart rate go up, they may scour or look slightly colicky, they will be disinclined to do very much and if asked to move, may look a bit wobbly.

There are many things we can do to help manage our horse through the hotter weather.

This Month on the Feed Line

20 April 2022

This month on the Feed Line we have had several people contact about their horses’ condition. It is normal and good if horses drop a little weight as they will gain weight with the grass. It is a worry if they get too light. Visible ribs and prominent hips suggest a horse could be underweight. If eating insufficient hay over winter, that gradual weight loss could become too much, so basics first – make sure your horse is getting enough hay or haylage to keep them filled up. For more serious weight loss, include soaked forage pellets with more feed value than hay. LucieNuts, Red Bag Grass Pellets, Sainfoin Pellets are all good. Read more

Spring is on the way! Spruce up your pasture

18 March 2022

Before the grass starts growing too vigorously, it is a good time to reseed patches in your pasture that have been denuded over winter. A little extra grass seed spread in early spring can make a big difference to your grazing. There is not often any need to plough up and reseed from scratch - it is expensive, time consuming and can take even years to establish a strong turf. Paddocks in need of a spruce up should be grazed down then harrowed to loosen the surface and iron out lumps or bumps. New seed can then be broadcast by hand, or drilled very shallow.
