Going through Autumn and in to Winter

28 October 2020

Most horses have good access to grazing over the summer. Native types make the most of this and are capable of eating double what they actually need! When the grass goes off or horses have less time at grass or even are off grass completely, it can be a bit of a shock to realise how much extra forage they need to keep healthy, especially if they are older and their teeth can cope with grass, but fail to do a sufficient task when it comes to eating hay.

We then need to provide an easy to eat alternative to hay, which is HayCare. In the feed bowl, we can stick with the forage theme, but higher nutrition LucieNuts. Read more

Why soak forage pellets?

Horses choke on their feed due usually to not chewing it sufficiently, and it gets stuck in the oesophagus, causing distress and spasms in the neck muscles. With massage and walking, this can clear in under half an hour – if not, it is a task for the vet to sort out. There are many reasons why horses don’t chew properly – dental issues are right up there, along with greed. Read more
