HorseMax Paddock

Long term horse grazing with an option to produce a quality hay crop

Long term horse grazing with an option to produce a quality hay crop. HorseMax Paddock is designed using diploid Perennial Ryegrasses, Timothy and Creeping Red Fescue. Sward density is a key consideration as both grazing and winter feed are often produced from the same area. Timothy is much favoured by horses and in particular gives hay a sweet smell and is very palatable. Creeping Red Fescue is key to keeping the sward together and because of its growth habit quickly repairs the turf when damaged by the hooves.

  • Very good sward density
  • Suitable for a hay crop if desired
  • Hard wearing sward
  • No tetraploids as high sugar grass can lead to laminitis
  • An extremely versatile equine mixture
