High Fibre HorseHage is made from a selected mix of grasses that are high in fibre and lower in protein and energy levels. Because High Fibre HorseHage is low in energy, it is generally suitable for all riding club and Pony Club horses, native ponies, veterans and those that are resting, convalescing or prone to laminitis. The HoofKind logo denotes its suitability for horses and ponies prone to laminitis. The unique fermentation process that the grass undergoes in the production of High Fibre HorseHage keeps the sugar and starch levels considerably lower than in other forages. High Fibre HorseHage also provides an excellent fibre source for competition horses being fed high levels of concentrates.
Timothy HorseHage, as its name implies, is made from timothy grass which is very similar to the famous Kentucky bluegrass of America. This grass is higher in fibre and lower in protein than many other grasses, making Timothy HorseHage particularly suitable for leisure horses and ponies, native ponies, veterans and horses and ponies that are resting, convalescing or prone to laminitis. Timothy has a completely different ‘nose’ to ryegrass, from which Ryegrass and High Fibre HorseHage are made. It has a very similar nutrient analysis to High Fibre HorseHage and is highly palatable, making it ideal for fussy feeders or simply to add variety to the diets of those already being fed HorseHage.
Easy Pack Haylage believe in giving horses a completely natural diet. Therefore our Meadow Hay is made from 100% Meadow grasses with no additives or sugars, creating a high fibre, medium to low sugar hay that is highly digestible but naturally low in sugar, protein and starch. Easy Pack compressed hay is made using specially selected meadow grasses which will provide your horse or pet with a balanced diet of fibre and goodness. This is then compressed and sectioned into a manageable size package which is roughly 1/3 size of a conventional bale but still 20kg. Fresh hay provides a high level of natural fibre which is essential for a healthy digestive system. When feeding your horse, feed the same weight of hay that you would normally use from uncompressed bales bales.
Ryegrass HorseHage is made from a selection of ryegrasses cut at an earlier stage of growth to provide optimum protein and energy levels. It is suitable for horses in work or for those that need a little more from their forage to improve weight and condition. Ryegrass HorseHage is great for hunters, heavy horses, young stock and breeding stock. It helps to meet a much greater proportion of their nutritional requirements than other forages, enabling hard feeds to be reduced by up to a third, allowing a more ‘natural’ diet which the horse’s digestive system is designed for.
Oat Hay is companion forage that is similar in nutritional analysis to the western timothy. Your animals will love the immature oat grain that is contained in the seed head and will benefit greatly from the fibre in the leaf and stem. Oat Hay is a good source of fibre and also gives variety to your animal’s diet. This product also makes a good bedding alternative to wheat straw.
