Forage Analysis and Feed Reviews have been a vital aspect of Dodson & Horrell providing world class nutritional support and consultation to professional racing and stud yards for many years. Now, we are bringing this hugely valuable and in-depth service to the individual horse or pony owner.
Our Feed Review is an easy to use, free, unbiased and personalised feeding evaluation service and planning tool for your horse or pony. Providing you with an overview of your horse’s current feeding plan and bespoke feed recommendations from our experienced veterinary and nutritional experts, it is a full nutrition service to help you feed your horse with confidence. Pairing it with our Forage Analysis services where we test your horse’s hay, haylage, grass or straw, provides the next level of nutritional consultation and an overview of your horses’ total diet.
Easy to use in just 5 minutes, our Feed Review is accessed via our website at Dodson & Horrell Forage Analysis – DodsonHorrell. Here you will be asked a few questions about your horse including his age, breed, weight, workload, temperament, and his current daily diet, including forage, feed, supplements, and/or herbs, and whether he has any existing or previous clinical concerns (e.g. laminitis or gastric ulcers). If you have previous feed or forage testing results, you can upload and share those reports with that with us too, helping to ensure your current diet is reviewed as accurately as possible.
Our team will then analyse the information provided using a unique and dedicated feed analysis software system in conjunction with their knowledge and experience, and provide you with a full report reviewing your current feeding plan and providing recommendations on any suggested tweaks to ration sizes, product combinations, or routines to help achieve your goals. Even if no changes are needed, our service can be used to sense check whether your current feeding plan is the best it can be.
All horses and ponies are individual and this is not a one size fits all solution. Your report will be specifically tailored to your horse’s individual requirements and our friendly team will be on hand to offer support and advice as follow up to continue to best suit your horses’ needs.
So, if you are unsure of what to feed your horse, would just like to check what you’re feeding is correct, or there has been a change in your horse’s health or workload causing a need to amend his diet, the Feed Review is for you!
It’s free, takes five minutes and if we don’t think there is anything you need to change, we’ll tell you that too!
