Is garlic good for my horse?

13 August 2020
Garlic Granules

Garlic seems to work for some horses and not others in keeping flies away – it’s the sulphurous smell that’s supposed to be effective. But as with all things, you can have too much of a good thing and too much garlic (or onions, which are closely related) can cause a problem called Heinz Body Anaemia, which can result in damage to the red blood corpuscles and lead to the horse becoming anaemic. Ensure you give your horse a month's break from garlic once or twice a year. Read more

New hay

17 July 2020

When old hay is running low, or is not very good quality, we will want to start on the new hay as soon as possible. But when can we start using new hay? Newly made hay continues to under-go changes even after it is baled. Traditionally, new hay was never fed to horses until Michaelmas at the end of September – when it was termed old hay! In practice and under pressure of supplies, do not feed new hay until it has been baled at least 6 weeks and even then, keep a close eye out for any signs your horse is not happy with it. This could be loose droppings, bloated and gassy or even colicky. Not all horses are affected by new hay, but it is not worth risking a gassy colic. Read more
