EQUINE NUTRITION

ADVICE ON FEEDING YOUR HORSE

The owner of Field Farm Stud is a specialist in equine nutrition, and would be pleased to formulate an appropriate diet for each horse at no additional cost.  Maintaining your horse at optimal weight and condition is ensured thanks to our equine weighbridge and a “smart” forage wagon that accurately weighs all forage fed.

PRESERVED FORAGE

All hay and haylage is made on-site from permanent pasture comprising a variety of grasses, clover and other forage.  Unlimited quantities are available for all horses under any of our livery packages without additional charge. Our hay and haylage is systematically analysed by the Irish Equine Centre, Ireland’s national equine laboratory. Our winter wheat straw is locally produced and made specifically for horses.

GRASS PASTURE

Our paddocks are large, and the forage mix of grass, clover and other pasture species is highly suitable for horses.  Since we have a limited number of liveries and many paddocks, we can rotate these regularly so that there should always be something for your horse to nibble on whilst outdoors, except in extreme weather.
