How To Get The Most Out Of Feeding Meadow Grass with Herbs
Dengie Meadow Grass with Herbs is a straight feed and although it contains natural nutrients it does not provide a balanced diet. We would recommend using a broad spectrum vitamin and mineral supplement such as Dengie Leisure or Performance Vits & Mins or alternatively a feed balancer such as Dengie Performance+ Balancer or Leisure Balancer to supply everything your horse or pony needs.

How Hard Are You Working Your Horse?
The amount and kind of work your horse or pony is doing is an important factor when calculating the quantity and type of feed to give. Try to use a fibre based diet to promote a healthy digestive system and only use cereal based feeds if absolutely necessary.
