Forage
When the availability of forage or forage quality is poor, you can supplement your horse’s forage with high-quality forage products. Processed forage products are also excellent for horses with dental challenges or respiratory problems. You can even take forage cubes or pellets on the road in place of hay. Complete horse feeds, such as Patriot® Feed Easy® Complete and Patriot® Senior Complete, which include grain and forage are handy all-in-one products to use when forage supply is low or of inferior feeding value. And, who doesn’t like to give their horse an occasional forage-based, healthy treat? Our Forage First® Horse Rewards are a perfect occasional treat for your horse.
