Feeding Guide

Horses are individuals and some will require less feed to put on or maintain weight than other but there are guidelines.

 

A mature horse or pony in light to moderate work requiries 2kgs of feed per 100kg of bodyweight per day, of which no more than 30% should be "hard" feed (e.g a 500kg horse requiries a total of 10 kg of food per day)

Never overfeed, especially feeds with a high sugar or protein content.

Introduce any new feed gradually to allow the micro flora in the digestive system to work efficiently.

Always make sure fresh clean water is available.

ORIGINAL & GARLIC CHAFF

Can be used in conjunction with straight cerals, coarse mixes or cubes to increase the fibre content of the feed.

It will ensure that feeds are eaten slowly, to help improve digestion, which allows maximum nutrition to be absorbed.

For horse or humans with respiratory problems or when good quality hay is not available, it can also be used as a full or partial hay replacement.

Garlic Chaff is beneficial for horses suffering with sweet itch or respiratory problems and will also act as a natural fly repellant.

ADVANCED CHAFF

This chaff is a complete, non cereal feed with malt, which acts as a natural pro biotic. It also contains oil for healthy joints, coat and skin, vitamins & minerals for general good condition and biotin for strong hoof growth.

It can be used in conjunction with straight cereals, mixes or cubes to increase fibre content of the feed.

It will ensure that feeds are eaten slowly, to help improve digestion, which allows maximum nutrition to be absorbed. 

 

PLAIN & SIMPLE  / COOL HOOF / OAT STRAW

All 3 of these chaffs are low in sugar,starch and no added sugar, making them ideal for laminitics.

Plain & Simple is just Oat Straw & Meadow Hay, chopped and screened to remove all fine particles and dust.

Cool Hoof is also Oat Straw & Meadow Hay but with the added benefit of rape seed oil and garlic.

Oat Straw is made from 100% screened golden oat straw.

All these feeds can be fed as hay replacement.
