However, Alfalfa is contemplated as absolute hay for horses. Grass hay that includes orchard grass, tall fescue or timothy solely provides a low amount of protein to the horses. Small grains which comprise cereal grain hays from rye, wheat or barley as well as pearl millet and oats offer a notable amount of carbohydrates through starches and sugars. Though horses can indulge no greater than 2% nitrates in their diet therefore, small grains hay needs testing for levels of nitrate. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerLeave an answerCancel reply Attachment Select file Browse Featured image Select file Browse Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
