In 2010, hay demand was at a premium due to the droughts that were followed by heavy rain and the subsequent cold snap. A poor cut in the summer and high demand in the winter left hay stocks dwindling and naturally this pushed the hay prices higher and higher. This now raises the question of the availability, quality and cost of hay for the forthcoming winter.
Many horse owners are thinking about incorporating a forage replacer into their winter ration, so we have created this handy step-by-step video, which will help you to create your very own forage replacer for your horse from Dodson & Horrell High Fibre Nuts, Alfalfa and KwikBeet.
Forage replacers are also ideal for older horses and ponies that are losing or have lost teeth and are now struggling to chew fibre (grass, hay, haylage). Using a forage replacer in this scenario will help to prevent against weight loss and quidding.
