Timothy Pellets for Horses are made from 100% British timothy grasses with no additives or fillers. The pellets are a high fibre, low sugar horse feed that is fantastic for all horses and ponies and will tempt even the fussiest of horses.

The timothy pellets can be used in the following scenarios:

  • As a guaranteed low sugar carrier (fed dry or wet) for mixing minerals balanced to the grass, hay or haylage fed
  • To tempt fussy horses or animals with a reduced appetite
  • Treats for horse training
  • Hay replacement for elderly horses with dental issues, they can be soaked for even easier eating and good hydration
  • Using in boredom treat balls for horses stabled or dry lotted for long periods of time
  • As a hay replacer to guarantee a low sugar source of forage for a horse, pony or donkey prone to laminitis
  • As a high quality, low sugar/starch good quality protein addition to the daily feed bucket for working horses and ponies
  • A known DE level means they can be fed at accurate amounts to maintain a healthy weight on good doer or poor doer animals.

The Horse Timothy Pellets come in 10kg bags. Please note that we have to restrict the sale of these pellets due to shipping costs to two bags per individual order. You are able to buy more but only if you complete the purchase in separate orders. This is so we can afford to keep supplying these low sugar, additive-free pellets.

Please ask us if you are interested in buying a half pallet of 60 bags.

Balancing

For a 500 kg horse in maintenance fed 9.2 kg of these timothy pellets, feed:

  • 85 grams of Forageplus Hoof and Skin Health 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:
  • 10 grams of rock, sea or table salt (chloride and sodium)
  • 1 x 5 ml scoop of seaweed (iodine)

If the horse is working, after 1 hours sweating, to cover electrolyte losses, add an additional 50
grams of salt in a small feed after work. To boost amino acids those horses in moderate work will
benefit from the addition of 50 grams of Forageplus Essential Amino Acids.

For other weights, age or categories of horse please contact us for advice.

    Pony absolutely loves these. You do need to use warm water to soak if your in a hurry as cold they do take a while but pony licks the bowl clean, really cost effective to as they expand so much

    My horse loves these. They soak to make a tasty mash for him to have his Summer Balancer in.

    My good doer Welsh section D is fed on this and it maintains her muscle but doesn’t make her put on weight like other feeds have done. I also find I can feed her a lot less because when soaked the pellets expand enormously! This makes it so cost effective as a feed for horses with stubborn fat.

    Elvis needed a high fibre feed to give him a little help through winter, with him being in moderate work. Grass pellets didn’t agree with him, causing mild colitis. The Timothy hay pellets are a great addition!
