HorseHage to Sponsor SEVA Symposium 2017

SEVAWe have signed up for a second year to support the Student Equine Veterinary Association Symposium for 2017.

This year the exciting event will be hosted by the University of Glasgow School of Veterinary Medicine on 4th – 5th February.

The symposium offers a diverse range of equine-centred lectures, seminars and practical demonstrations to interested veterinary students with a variety of topics to ensure it appeals to students at every stage of the veterinary courses.

Said Chris Tar of HorseHage, “We are delighted to have this opportunity to reach out to the next generation of equine veterinarians. HorseHage is a unique product which is often mistaken for ordinary haylage but is produced quite differently, which gives it some very beneficial properties, such as a very low sugar content and high digestibility and palatability. It has BETA NOPS certification and because we make four different varieties, we know there is an option to suit all types of horses and ponies, including those prone to laminitis.”

Said Simon Woods, BVSc MRCVS, of Lower House Equine Clinic in Shropshire: “As an equine vet, I often recommend the High Fibre variety to my clients and we feed it to all the in-patients at my equine veterinary clinic. We find it to be a universal forage that is suitable for all types of ponies and horses. It is high in fibre, whilst low in protein and energy and so is suitable for horses and ponies prone to laminitis or those that are going through a period of convalescence.”

“Modern forage can vary tremendously in terms of quality and composition. Some batches of hay can contain large amounts of energy and sugars, far more than some haylage. With High Fibre HorseHage, the quality of forage is always reliable and is high in fibre and low in energy, making it consistently suitable and safe for laminitis-prone horses and ponies.”

In addition to the health benefits, HorseHage is also very easy to use too. It splits easily into wedges and never requires any soaking or steaming. The bales are a handy size as they are highly compressed to around half their original size. They look smaller than some bales on the market, but in fact still weigh around 22kg.
