hay stretchers


So I'm hopefully moving to a new place to board. But its wooded pasture. And hay is scarce enough and expensive. I was hoping to add a hay stretcher to my horses grain and feed partial hay.

Anyone have yay's or neighs about it?

I believe there is no substitute for good quality grass hay. I would give up everything else, and feed more hay.

Beet pulp can be added to replace up to 40-50% forage

Agree. You'll just be asking for problems if you skimp on hay.

Hay is by far the best.
If you want to add something by way of a feed then beet pulp which is soaked so is also providing moisture as well as being high fibre and hay stretcher pellets. I prefer the smaller pellets to the ones that look like large breakfast cereal shredded wheat things - they worried me that they could cause choking and didn't soak very well
