This feeding guide is designed as a basic guide to quantities of feed required. Remember horses vary in terms of metabolism, temperament etc. and should always be treated as individuals. Our feeds are designed to form the sole concentrate part of the diet. Only good quality forage (grass, hay, haylage or chop) and a constant supply of fresh, clean water need to be added to meet your horse or pony’s nutritional needs. Additional salt can be advantageous for horses and ponies in harder work.
Our comprehensive range of chaffs and fibre feeds are manufactured to the highest specifications using top quality ingredients sourced from approved suppliers. Sweet Meadow Original can be fed ad-lib as required to increase your horse’s fibre intake. It can be added to the concentrate meal / bucket feed or dampened a little and used as a partial hay replacer if required. However, if your horse or pony is on a calorie-controlled diet or prone to laminitis then Sweet Meadow Lite will be the preferred choice. Sweet Meadow Herbi can also be fed ad-lib as required to increase fibre intake either added to concentrates or used as a partial hay replacer.
