Lately I've been putting our horses through their annual vaccines, along with their every-other-month deworming and hoof trimming. I have a feeling that when I walk in to the pastures, they're whispering "Uh oh. Here she comes. What now?" And then they heave a big sigh. So when Standlee contacted me about doing a review, I was excited to have some tasty new feed products for them to try. This time of year, the horses are full and round from all the green grass, so I don't need to do any feed supplementing, but that doesn't mean they can't test out a new product as a treat. And next winter, I'll be all set when the land turns brown and the grass is sparse.
Pierce and Reid were my helpers for the evening. I decided to try the Premium Alfalfa/Oat Cubes, the Premium Alfalfa/Timothy Pellets, and the Premium Alfalfa/Timothy Mini Cubes. Standlee uses high quality timothy hay and alfalfa grass in their horse products. We fixed some treat buckets of both for the horses to try. Pierce smelled a handful of the sweet pellets and declared that they smelled like oats, so he thought the horses would love them.
Phoenix really liked the alfalfa pellets, whereas Harriet enjoyed the alfalfa/timothy mini cubes first. They both licked their tubs clean. Pierce and Reid kept saying, "They love their treats!" Although both Phoenix and Harriet are seniors (both being over 20 years old), they had no trouble in chewing up the pellets, and seemed to love them.
Standlee Hay Company is dedicated to growing the highest quality of forage products that are available. Next winter we will be well-stocked with Standlee products, and I know our horses will appreciate receiving their nutrition this way when the months grow cold and long.
