‘Sainfoin’ means ‘Healthy Hay’ in French and this is exactly what it is! Sainfoin is non-bloating and has natural anthelmintic properties (natural wormer). It is a good source of condensed tannins, which aids protein digestion.
Sainfoin is also a source of naturally occurring copper, which can aid the health of bones, tendons and joints.
Sainfoin is suitable for all horses and can be very beneficial when fed with hay and grass as a nutritious alternative and to add a variety of flavour.
Sainfoin Pellets are ideally fed soaked. If appropriate, feed singly as treats or mixed with twice their volume of soaked PuraBeet or twice their volume of chop and well dampened. Use as part of the forage ration or in addition.
Start with 100g per 100kg of bodyweight per day, increase as required up to a maximum of 5kg per day. For example, for a 500kg horse start with 500g per day (dry weight, before soaking) and increase as required.
As with any new feed, introduce gradually over a week.
Feed according to requirement & condition.
