Dust Free Beneficial for horses prone to respiratory infections and allergies. Increased Hydration The water in hydrated Hay Cubes increases your horse's water intake, benefiting the kidneys and resulting in better hydration and digestion. Palatable Hay cubes are easily accepted into the diet as a replacement for hay and chaff. Older Horses who have minimal teeth and who aren't able to consume roughage in the traditional form of grass and hay benefit tremendously from the introduction of Hay Cubes into their diet. Grain Free Non-heating so ideal for fizzy/nervous horses. Also ideal for miniatures and ponies! Hay Cubes are suitable for horses and ponies of all ages, sizes and disciplines. The compressing process dramatically reduces moisture content and weight therefore 1 bag of Hay Cubes dry is equivalent to approx 4 Bales of hay and can be used as a complete replacement for Hay and Chaff.
