The choice of forage you buy for your horse or pony should be the most important feed decision you make, as 70 - 100% of the equine diet should be provided by forage. Choosing HorseHage will allow you to feed with confidence.
Hay can often contain dust and mould spores and soaking and steaming it is time consuming and not always successful. The nutritional quality can vary a great deal too and a typical hay sample can contain around 10% sugar.
Big bale haylage is usually made in large bales which are designed to be fed whole in the field and can be difficult to handle and break up. The quality can be variable and unless you are feeding several horses or ponies, there is the chance of wastage as a bale should be consumed within a week before it goes off.
HorseHage bagged forage offers all you and your horse could wish for in a forage and the company has over 40 years of expertise in producing the highly compressed, dust-free product that has become widely recognised as a premium quality product.
Unlike most haylages, HorseHage is not re-wrapped. It is compressed down to half its size and packed into heat-sealed, double-skinned bags. It goes through a fermentation process that causes the sugars in the grass to break down, reducing the acidity level and giving it a sweet smell whilst preserving the grass. This gives it a sugar content of around 4% which is much lower than most other forages.
The highly compressed bales take up less room and are great for travelling and HorseHage splits very easily into wedges for netting up. It can be stored outside on a pallet too.
We don’t add anything to HorseHage. No chemicals, mould inhibitors or inoculants. It’s a totally natural product and has BETA NOPS and FEMAS certifications.
So if you’re looking for a forage that is dust-free, low in sugar, easy to use, totally natural and comes with a guarantee, HorseHage is ideal. It is available in four different varieties offering a choice of energy levels for every type of horse or pony including those prone to laminitis.
But better still….most horses and ponies relish the taste and so there’s no wastage either!
