HorseHage Timothy grass is higher in fibre and lower in protein than many other grasses, making it particularly suitable for leisure horses and ponies, native ponies, veterans and horses and ponies that are resting and convalescing or prone to laminitis. It is also an excellent fibre source that is a great choice for competition horses being fed high levels of concentrates.
Like HorseHage High Fibre, HorseHage Timothy also carries the HoofKind logo which indicates its suitability for horses and ponies prone to laminitis. This is also due to its unique fermentation process that the Timothy grass undergoes in the production of Timothy HorseHage – It keeps the sugar and starch levels considerably lower than in other forages.
Timothy has a completely different ‘nose’ to ryegrass, from which HorseHage Ryegrass and HorseHage High Fibre are made. It has a very similar nutrient analysis to High Fibre HorseHage and is highly palatable, making it ideal for fussy feeders or simply to add variety to the diets of those already being fed HorseHage.
