You might think – ‘why, if your horses live on a grass free track, do you need to feed GrazeEzy?’  The thing is, that grass in the UK is really hard to get rid of! It can springs up anywhere – but generally does so along the fence lines and anywhere on the main track that’s not getting a lot of wear and tear from the horses’ feet.  So even on a ‘grass free’  track, elminating all grass can be difficult at cetain times of the year.

Then in Winter, I have to move the fences to create firm ground.   This means that  an area of grazing comes into the track until the horses have eaten and trampled it into mud. At this time of year a little fresh forage can also be a good thing – provided it is carefully managed within the wider diet.

Due to the ongoing challenge of short stressed grass from the fence lines and  periodic strip grazing to manage the ground in Winter,  I tend to feed 10 -20gms of GrazeEzy per horse most of the time.  Doing this also means that I can allow them occaisional use of my 10 -minute turn out – an area of mature pasture where the horses can stretch their legs off-track in bad conditions, have a good roll and a bit of a nibble after a good training session.

By keeping an eye on the weather, understanding how this affects grass growth, and by taking extra care in spring and late Autumn, I can easily increase the daily level of GrazeEzy as and when needed.   I always keep my pH strips ready in my pocket to test the urine.  This helps me to keep a check on their status and work out whats needed before problems start.

So, along with Salt, Premium Vitamins and Minerals, a little GrazeEzy is a regular ingredient in the simple bucket that I feed twice a day.  Managing the horses this way means that they do not become compromised.  I have learned that prevention is better and much easier than cure.  It is much more cost-effective and means that I can plan my competitions and other events with confidence.
