Simple System Horse Feeds Sainfoin Pellets

Sainfoin is a premium forage alternative to lucerne and grass.
Known as ‘holy hay’, Sainfoin has long been recognised for its many benefits.

The Sainfoin Pellets are rich in natural minerals and trace elements. They are a good source of condensed tannins, which aid digestion of protein. Sainfoin is also a source of naturally occurring copper, which can aid the health of bones, tendons and joints. It is also widely recognised for its natural antihelminthic properties.

Sainfoin is suitable for all horses, and can be very beneficial when fed with hay and grass as a nutritious alternative and to add a variety of flavour.

Suitable for:

  • Pregnant mares
  • Foals and youngstock
  • Competition horses
  • Older horses
  • Lucerne allergies

Sainfoin Esparcette is a premium forage alternative to lucerne and grass.

Feeding guideline

As with any new feed, introduce gradually over a week.

Sainfoin Pellets are ideally fed soaked.
If appropriate, feed singly as treats or mixed with twice their volume of soaked PuraBeet or twice their volume of chop and well dampened.
Use as part of the forage ration or in addition.

Start with 100g per 100kg of bodyweight per day, increase as required up to a maximum of 5kg per day.
For example, for a 500kg horse start with 500g per day (dry weight, before soaking) and increase as required.

Feed according to requirement & condition.
