BARN: Chores

At Lavender Fields, we feed high quality hay pellets. We weigh every meal and know exactly how much, pound for pound, each horse is eating. For us, hay pellets have been an effective way to provide horses with essential fiber and nutrition. Need more information- read on:

  1. Convenience: Hay pellets are easier to store, handle, and transport than traditional hay bales. The bags take up less space, and can cost less pound per pound than hay.

  2. Nutritional value: Hay pellets are bagged with a guaranteed analysis. So, you know exactly what nutritional values your horse is receiving pound per pound.

  3. Digestibility: Hay pellets are easier for horses to digest than hay. This is especially important for horses with colic history, digestive problems, or dental issues, as the pellets can be more easily broken down and absorbed.

  4. Reduced waste: With flakes, horses often waste a lot of hay by storing, transporting, and horse shenanigans. With pellets, we experience zero waste.

  5. Clean. Hay pellets are weed, dust, and debris free. This is a huge benefit in stable and pasture settings.

With these facts in mind, it is important to consult with a veterinarian or equine nutritionist to determine the appropriate amount and type of hay pellets for your horse’s specific needs.
