Spring Feeding With HorseHage and Mollichaff

Spring Feeding With HorseHage and Mollichaff

Spring can be an important season for horse owners, with the competition season getting underway and the change in weather, which should allow many horses to be turned out. Adjustments may need to be made to feeding regimes to allow for changes in work and daily routine.

Whatever the time of year, though, good quality forage should always provide the basis of any equine diet. HorseHage offers four varieties of dust-free bagged forage, with an option to suit all types of horses and ponies, from laminitics, which can safely be fed the Timothy and High Fibre varieties, to performance horses in hard work which require the optimum levels of protein provided by the Ryegrass or Alfalfa HorseHage

Good quality chaffs, such as Mollichaff, can help to bulk out the hard feed and by stimulating the production of saliva and slowing the passage of food through the gut, can help to promote good digestion and will satisfy a stabled horse’s psychological need to chew. There are several varieties and one that is very popular for the show season is Mollichaff ShowShine – a cherry-flavoured, high oil chaff.for the ultimate in show condition.

Our Mollichaff range also includes three complete fibre feeds for horses and ponies, which can be an economical choice for many owners in today’s financial climate as when fed in the recommended amounts, only additional forage is required. These complete feeds – Mollichaff Calmer, Mollichaff Condition and Mollichaff HoofKind -  are carefully balanced and contain all the minerals and vitamins needed. Mollichaff HoofKind is ideal for laminitics – a condition that can be very prevalent at this time of year.
