Horsehage

During the seventies, Mark Westaway became increasingly concerned about his event horses persistently coughing. His veterinary surgeon expressed the view that the coughing was dust related and that since hay was the major dust source, the problem would continue unless someone could come up with a dust free forage designed specifically for the horse.  So from a chance but significant remark, the idea for HorseHage was born.

We stock:

Ryegrass - Ryegrass HorseHage is made from a selection of ryegrasses cut at an early stage of growth to provide optimum protein and energy levels.  Broadly speaking, it is suitable for competition horses and ponies, hunters, heavy horses, youngstock and breeding stock.  It can also be fed to help horses gain weight and improve condition.  (20kg) 

High Fibre - High Fibre HorseHage is made from selected ryegrasses, which have been allowed to mature before harvesting to attain higher fibre, lower protein and lower energy levels. Because it is low in energy, High Fibre HorseHage is generally suitable for Riding and Pony Club horses, native ponies, veterans and those that are resting, convalescing or are laminitic. It also provides an excellent fibre source for competition horses being fed high levels of concentrate. 

Timothy - 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 laminitic.  Timothy has a completely different ‘nose’ to ryegrass, from which Ryegrass HorseHage and High Fibre HorseHage are made. It has a 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.

Calmer - Mollichaff Calmer is a highly palatable, complete fibre feed designed for horses and ponies prone to nervousness or excitability. It contains a balanced blend of fibre pellets, oat straw, dried grass, herbs, soya oil, vitamins, minerals, limestone and trace elements.
