Molly is a 15 year old Arabian Mare. I purchased Molly as a brood a Mare in the spring of 2019. She was bred in June of that year to a thoroughbred stallion and Foaled early June of 2020. It has been difficult to keep Molly in the body condition I am accustomed to for my brood mares. She basically is provided with free choice grass and alfalfa hay. I also provide grain, minerals and vitamins as needed for their stage of pregnancy and milk production, but despite all of this Molly still did not have the condition I like to see.
Molly before feed
Sturdy Horse hemp pellets were recommended to me by my trainer in Colorado. At first I only fed 1lb a day, after a few weeks I still did not see the improvement I wanted. The foal was old enough to creep feed, so I increased Molly’s Hemp pellets to 4lbs a day. It was wonderful to see that both Molly and her foal would eat them. After 6 weeks on 4 lbs a day of Sturdy Horse hemp pellets, Molly and her foal have bloomed! I am impressed with the Real Food Value of Sturdy Horse hemp pellets.
