A blend of Lincolnshire’s finest meadow grasses are dried, chopped and lightly dressed with rapeseed oil. Topped with a unique blend of herbs including liquorice root, fennel, mint, chamomile and aniseed.
Dengie Meadow Grass with Herbs & Oil is a straight feed and although it contains natural nutrients it does not provide a balanced diet. We would recommend using a broad spectrum vitamin and mineral supplement such as Dengie Leisure or Performance Vits & Mins or alternatively a feed balancer such as Dengie Performance+ Balancer or Leisure Balancer to supply everything your horse or pony needs.

With temperatures forecast to be below zero and snow fall for areas of the country, ensuring your horse or pony is kept warm and going about your normal routine can be a challenge.
Providing fibre in a form that horses and ponies can manage to chew it ensures that they are still receiving all the vital nutrients to keep them healthy. Pelleted fibres that are fed soaked are particularly beneficial for veteran horses, aiding hydration in the performance horse and during winter months.
