A full horse meadow hay pallet contains 40 bales. Each bale has been carefully grown and packed in southern England.

A known DE (calorie) level means that Forageplus can advise those who need to carefully manage good doer horses who are prone to weight gain on how much to feed to maintain a healthy weight.

Equally, we can advise those with poor doers, elderly horses or those in moderate to heavy work what concentrates and what level of concentrates will be needed to match to this hay for optimum weight management and performance energy.

Please note we cannot give you high or low desirable figures for each mineral. This is because a complicated relationship exists between certain minerals where an excess of one mineral will block another. However, we can advise you on the best ratios for optimum, healthy horse nutrition.

Balancing Suggestions

Feed Suggestions

This hay is suitable for horses and ponies prone to laminitis and needs no soaking. For a 500 kg horse in maintenance/light work fed 10.2 kg of this meadow hay, feed:

40 grams of Forageplus Hoof & Skin Winter/Summer Balancer carried in any fast soak fibre provider or small feed of your choice.

We suggest 200 grams of unmolassed beet pulp (dry weight).

Include 100 grams of Micronised Linseed each day for omega 3 supplementation, if on less than 6 hours of good spring or summer grazing and include the following separate minerals for best balance:

– 1 x 15 ml scoop of Magnesium Oxide
– 1 x 2.5 ml scoop of Bioplex Manganese
– 1 x 5 ml scoop of Seaweed (iodine)
– 1 x 10 ml scoop of Lysine
– 1 x 5 ml scoop of Vitamin E (not needed if the horse is on more than 6 hours of good spring or summer grazing.

10 grams of the table, rock or sea salt in addition to the Forageplus horse feed balancer.

Protein is a little low so feeding an additional 50 – 100 grams of Topline Plus per day is wise to boost essential amino acid levels.

After 1 hour of sweating, to cover electrolyte losses, add an additional 35 grams of salt in a small feed after work.

6 reviews for Meadow Hay Pallet | 40 Bales

  1. TanyaManser (verified owner)

    This hay has literally been a life saver for my laminitic Fjord. Following her first attack of laminitis, feeding soaked hay, our vet decided the mare’s condition was not improving, the pain was uncontrollable and we should call it a day. I switched to feeding this low ESC hay in a trickle net and pony has made amazing recovery! Her feet are growing much better hoof, she is losing weight, her crest has gone and fat distribution his now normal. Total peace of mind in a bag. Thank you!

  2. Nikkiandcassie30 (verified owner)

    Worth every penny! My horse has gut issues and laminitis! Using this hay means I can control her sugar and starch intake! She is doing so well, the best I have ever seen her in 10 years!
    No more need to muzzle her in the paddock! Definitely recommend!

    Great quality and really fresh

  5. Rebecca Fowles

    Very good service from Forage Plus and arrived swiftly. Extremely important for my pony to eat good quality, low sugar/starch hay and I am very pleased to see her tuck into her hay without having to worry. The meadow hay has a lovely diverse mixture of grasses and she thoroughly enjoys it. Weight is slowly coming off and I look forward to seeing her thrive on a safe, good quality diet – thanks to Forage Plus for a good product and service.

    Absolutely outstanding quality, could never be without this now after struggling for years.
