How to soak Grass Pellets

To reduce the risk of choke when fed as the sole feed without chopped fibre alongside and for those that struggle to chew please soak Grass Pellets prior to feeding – as a pure fibre pellet, at times the Grass Pellets can absorb lots of water and swell.

To soak our grass pellets for horses, you can use hot or cold water. Soaking time can vary according to the density of the pellets, but as a guide we would expect a 2 hour cold soak or 15 minute hot soak time. Equally the grass pellets can be left through the day or night to soak. We would suggest a 1 part product to 4 parts water soaking ratio to produce a mash, but you can add more or less water according to your horse’s preference.

One scoop of Grass Pellets = 1.6Kg

Different ways of feeding Grass Pellets

To dampen the feed:

Add a small quantity ie. ½ or 1 mug of soaked Pure Grass Pellets to feed to dampen. This can be particularly useful when mixing powdered supplements into a feed. Being pure grass, they are naturally sweeter so can help with tempting fussy feeders.

Using in a treat ball:

Pure Grass Pellets are a great lower starch alternative to cereal-based cubes that can be fed in a treat ball to help reduce boredom and provide a more natural tickle feeding rate.

If using as a hay replacer:

Pure Grass Pellets are a great option as a full or partial hay replacer, particularly for horses with poor dentition as they can be soaked to a soft mash making them very easy to chew. They can be fed up to ad lib quantities if required.

Other animals:

Pure Grass Pellets can be fed to a wide variety of other animals including cattle, sheep, goats and camelids.

Case Studies

Easy to Chew Soaked Mash

Miranda Gray has had her 41 year old Thoroughbred x  ‘Billy’ for 34 years.  He now has very few teeth left and those that he does have are very worn, meaning he struggles to chew most things including grass.

Reviews

  1. Jacqueline Sandford

    I have been using Grass Pellets all winter, as they were recommended to me by my supplier and I am really pleased with them. I have a 29yr mare who has limited teeth left and who looked like a coat rack at one point last winter, so I wanted something that would feed her up and keep the weight on and this is working a treat. I mix it with a scoop of chaff and feed it twice a day and she is looking well. I would highly recommend it.

  2. Nicola Linforth

    I have been using Grass Pellets for my 7 year old mare who has just had a cheek tooth out. She wouldnt eat any other feed to take her antibiotics but would with these. Really easy to soak with hot water.

  3. Nicola Linforth

    These are a life saver! I have been using Grass Pellets for my 7 year old mare who has just had a cheek tooth out. She wouldnt eat any other feed to take her antibiotics but would with these. Really easy to soak with hot water.

  4. Rachel Lulham

    Recommended these when my pony with IBD stopped eating her feed, and she has everything run by specialist vet and can only have Timothy grass. she adores these. They smell lovely too, now my boy went off purabeet, and would not eat his feed and supplements till I put this back in his feed.

  5. Barbara Young

    My thirty-year-old mare, Gerry, has poor dentition, struggles to eat much hay, and has become fussy and wasteful with the various bucket feeds I have tried her with. As a consequence she emerged from the last two winters far too thin.
    This year is different. Gerry loves these pellets, not a morsel left in the bucket. She is holding her weight and looking great for her age.
    Thank you Dengie, brilliant product.
