The healthiest pasture for your horse

Just imagine: a pasture with the healthiest grass for your horses. Grass that is moreover very resistant to a sprint around the pasture and that has a beautiful green sward throughout the year. That’s possible. With Horse Master, especially for your horse pasture.


Prevents laminitis and tying up
Laminitis and tying up are common complaints caused by the consumption of too much grass of the wrong type with a too high fructan content. Grass in the form of roughage constitutes the greatest part of forage for horses, and therefore has a great impact on their health. Horse Master is specially composed to ensure optimum health. That’s why it contains grasses that create a pasture with a lower energy value and a lower fructan content, greatly reducing the risks of laminitis and tying up in your horses.

 

Horse grass instead of cow grass
With Horse Master you create a pasture full of horse grass, contrary to the many pastures that are full of cow grass. Horses that graze in pastures full of cow grass consume grass that is too high in energy and contains too much fructan for them, adversely affecting their health. As horses find cow grass very palatable, they will soon consume far too much of it. That will make them sick, often followed by complaints such as laminitis or tying up. It’s not without reason that there is horse grass for horses and cow grass for cows.


Prevents sand colic
Sand colic is another complaint, besides laminitis and tying up, that is caused by the consumption of the wrong type of grass. As horses eat grass with their lips, they graze the sward very short, making it difficult for the grass to regrow. The bare patches that are thus formed are the cause of sand colic: the horses ingest too much sand while grazing. Horse Master contains grass varieties with a very low growing point to contribute towards good horse health and prevent sand colic. The grazed grass’s regrowth is not disturbed in any way and the pasture retains its beautiful green sward.


Effective fibre in your horse grass
Your horse’s stomach and intestines will perform better if your horse consumes grass and forage that contain sufficient effective fibre. That’s why Horse Master contains grass species and varieties that produce roughage with a good effective fibre content. This is also beneficial for your horse’s health. The Horse Master grass of course retains its unique characteristics when it is turned into hay, making for a substantial difference in quality between hay from a Horse Master pasture and hay from any other pasture.

 

Good horse pastures that can be effectively maintained
A strong, dense sward is essential for maintaining a good pasture. Horse Master is specially composed of varieties with an excellent wear tolerance, ensuring a dense sward in your horse pasture. The sward will moreover remain beautifully green because the varieties contained in Horse Master recover quickly after heavy trampling. The dense sward that is created in a Horse Master pasture will moreover discourage the growth of weeds.

 

The healthiest grass seed for your horse pasture
The conclusion is obvious: Horse Master combines unique characteristics from which the health of both your horse and your pasture will benefit. So it’s not without reason the healthiest grass seed for your horse pasture. The grass is palatable, contains a lot of effective fibre and has low energy and fructan contents. Horse Master grass forms a well-balanced part of your horse’s daily feed ration. It greatly reduces the risks of laminitis, tying up and sand colic. You will find yourself admiring a beautiful horse pasture containing horses glowing with health.

Most grass seed mixtures are traditionally intended for use by cattle. However, cows’ requirements with respect to grass are quite different from those of horses. Horse Master is an innovative grass seed mixture yielding roughage that is ideal for horses’ rations.
