All the extreme nutritional benefits of wheat and barley grass for humans now available for the equine community. Horses will have a dramatic effect on their health and performance, and the benefits are noticeable immediately.
They are grazers by nature and providing fresh vegetation year round with our greens helps simulate their natural feeding process. Our South Florida grass is grown in a mostly sandy environment which for horse owners is not acceptable especially when caring for a prized animal.
We provide a product grown with 100% pure unaltered water.The same product produced in the same super clean environment that we use for human products.
Supplying our greens as a supplemental feed each day will result in many benefits, including:
Less recovery time required after hard work
Reduced instance of colic, ulcers and inflammation
Earlier and more consistent heat cycles
Improved hoof health
Improved behavior and temperament
Higher energy levels
Improved coat gloss and appearance
Improved Performance and endurance
What the Doctors are Saying:
Wes Leckner and Tracy Underwood, co-owners of the Santa Rosa Equestrian Facility, board between 90 and 100 horses at their training facility in northern California. Tracy reports, “The health benefits of the fodder are amazing! We had Clair Thunes, a PhD in nutrition from UC Davis, do an in-depth analysis of our fodder.
Basically, the fodder provides an energy dense, live feed source that has a consistent nutritional content in addition to greater amounts of lysine, vitamin E and omega -3 fatty acids than hay. Many benefits that we have observed but don’t necessarily appear in the written analysis include shinier coats and an improvement in attitude and energy, especially in the older ponies at our European Pony School.
Our barn vet, John Kaufman, DVM, attributes this to the seniors (some lacking teeth) being able to eat, digest and therefore, get the nutritional benefit of the food.” In early July of 2015, a small sprouting system will be delivered to Colorado State University. They will be performing research on the effects during pre and post op equine surgeries. With the known health benefits, it will be interesting to see the recovery time. The university learned about sprouts through a local dude ranch using fodder. They could see improved health in the horses and asked what they were doing different.
