Resource Library - Hay and Forage Analysis

Forage - the foundation of your horse's diet. Whether it from hay, or pasture, or a combination of both, it is beneficial to have a clear understanding of what is in the forage you are feeding.

Fresh, healthy pasture is a living organism and changes throughout the day, depending on the environment's impact. Hay, on the other hand, is dead grass. Once living grass has been cut, dried, and stored, it loses many key nutrients.

These materials will give you a clear view of how to evaluate your horse's forage, as well as the best and safest way to feed it to your horse.
