Full Item Details

A completely dust free high fibre forage based feed. Can be fed as a full or partial hay replacer. Can also be fed dry or hand fed as treats.


Over 50 varieties of alpine grasses and herbs grown to a mature stage for high fibre levels. No pre ­soaking required. Can be fed dry. Suitable for horses with a sensitive digestion. Low sugar and starch hence suitable for metabolic horses or those prone to laminitis.

No preservatives, additives, binders, GMO ingredients, waste byproducts, chemical processing or straw. Tested pesticide free.

These Haycobs are imported from Germany (Bavarian alpine region) and they are specially made to be fed dry, by using a technique which compresses them into very hard nuts. This means that they do not crumble or produce dust when broken in two. It also encourages the horse to chew them thoroughly and produce saliva in doing so, to break them down further. It is always possible (just like with any chaff, nut, cube, pieces of apple, carrot, etc) that if a horse bolts its feed by eating quickly and not chewing sufficiently, that it can be at risk of choke. If you have found this to be the case with your horse, please take care when feeding any chaff or nut in the dry form (unless you feed one Haycob at a time), but instead soak them into a mash.  We recommend that you soak for at least 3 hours, or preferably overnight to make sure there are no hard centres left in the mash. We also recommend that when feeding our Haycobs dry, they must be fed separately, not as part of a mash (or sprinkled on top) as your horse must be able to chew them thoroughly. 

Composition:  Dried alpine grasses and herbage.Analysis:  Haycobs are a natural product. Over 50 varieties of Bavarian alpine grasses and herbs are cut from in excess of 1000 acres and there will be variations in the analyses due to number of cuts per year, time of cut, weather, location of field, etc.

The Analyses shown are therefore ranges across various batches.

Feed as a high fibre based forage feed. If feeding as a hay replacement, feed from 500g to 1kg per 100kg bodyweight daily, split meals throughout the day. Can be fed dry by hand as treats. For veterans or horses with poor dental state, the cobs can be pre­soaked with warm water to make a tasty mash. As a mash, they can also be used as a carrier for Thunderbrook Base Mix, Daily Essentials or other supplements.
