Healthy Treats for Snack Balls
As winter approaches and turnout time is limited, horses and ponies may spend more time stabled. Keeping them occupied can be a worry for many horse owners and providing snack balls can be a great way to help reduce boredom and provide a more natural ‘trickle’ feeding rate.
Finding a treat or pelleted horse feed that is tasty but also healthy can sometimes be a struggle. In the Dengie range, our Alfalfa and Grass Pellets are the perfect solution! Providing fibre in a concentrated form, Alfalfa and Grass Pellets are both naturally low in sugar and starch. They are also FREE from:
- Artificial preservatives, flavours and additives
- Molasses – no added sugar
- Cereals and by-products including straw
- Binders and fillers
Alfalfa Pellets are simply 100% alfalfa – rich in calcium and other naturally occurring vitamins and minerals. As alfalfa is naturally low in sugar (5%) Alfalfa Pellets are ideal for horses and ponies that require a low sugar diet such as laminitis prone individuals including those with Equine Metabolic Syndrome (EMS) and Pituitary Pars Intermedia Dysfunction (PPID).
Grass Pellets are 100% naturally grown meadow grass with no added sugar. Naturally sweet they are ideal at tempting fussy feeders!
Did you know: Alfalfa and Grass Pellets are not just a high-fibre source for horses and ponies, other animals such as cattle, sheep, goats and camelids can also enjoy the benefits of these versatile feeds.
