Tempt Your Fussy Feeder with Tasty AppleChaff

Fussy Feeders Love AppleChaff

If you have a horse or pony that is fussy about his food and needs his fibre levels increased to bulk out his concentrate ration, then AppleChaff could offer a solution.

Delicious AppleChaff is a high quality chaff made from the finest quality straw which has been chopped and dust extracted, then dressed with a unique, low sugar dressing.

Applechaff contains real diced apple pieces as well as apple essence to make it irresistible to even the fussiest of feeders. It is well known that apples are not just a tasty favourite of your four-legged friend, but are a good source of a wide range of natural nutrients, including potassium, calcium, Vitamin C and dietary fibre.

Limestone is also added to increase the calcium levels in the diet and to correct any calcium: phosphorous imbalances that can frequently occur when horses are fed a lot of concentrates or straights.

AppleChaff is naturally high in fibre and is excellent for adding bulk to a horse or pony’s diet, helping to promote good digestion by stimulating the production of saliva and regulating the slow passage of food through the gut.

In particular it will satisfy a stabled horse’s psychological need to chew, requiring up to 8000 chews per kilo to eat compared to as few as 1200 for concentrates.

AppleChaff can be mixed into the hard feed ration, or used as a palatable base in which to add supplements, balancers and medication.
