Alfalfa Hay

There are many factors that go into successful horse ownership. One of the most important choices you will make with your horse is which type of feed to use. You need to know what horses should and should not eat. Simply knowing what your horse can eat, though, is not always enough. You need to know what the best type of feed for your particular breed, age, and size of a horse will be. Alfalfa is a go-to horse feed for many reasons. This quick guide will teach you what you need to know about getting started with alfalfa for your horses.

Alfalfa is an often readily available type of nutritious grass. This is one of the reasons it is often recommended for horses. Some other types of animals can eat it as well, but this guide will discuss the benefits and considerations when choosing this grass for horses.
Alfalfa is considered a densely nutritious type of hay. In fact, alfalfa is so nutrient-dense, that even some humans incorporate alfalfa supplements into their diet.
Vitamins- The hay contains high levels of A, D, E, K, U, C, B1, B2, B6, and B12. It also contains ample amounts of Niacin, Folic acid, Biotin, Pantothenic acid, Inositol.
Minerals- Alfalfa contains minerals such as copper, sodium, magnesium, iron, phosphorous, and more. There are several trace minerals also in this hay. Many trace minerals are necessary for healthy bone development in horses.
Other nutrients- Alfalfa also has a very high protein content. The protein content in alfalfa makes it a very appealing feed choice for many horse owners. As with all grasses, alfalfa also has a very high fiber content as well.
It is very important as a horse owner that you understand different horses have different needs. For instance, very young horses will have different needs from aging horses. Young mares that are breeding will also have different needs from males. Alfalfa can be beneficial, but you need to make sure that it will be beneficial to your particular horse and its particular needs.
The most significant way in which horses benefit from this type of hay is in the fact that it is very nutrient-dense. This means that the horse can eat a smaller amount and get more nutrients. The horse will not feel the need to eat and eat and eat, trying to satisfy the body’s need for nutrients.
In this way, using alfalfa can be cost-effective. You will not need as much alfalfa to fulfill the nutrient needs of most horses.
Underweight horses will benefit from this type of hay the most. The nutrient-dense composition can help these horses to put on weight and maintain a good weight.
Lactating broodmares also benefit from this type of feed because they are considered to be on a higher nutrition plane. This means that, because of their stage in life, their bodies need a higher level of nutrients daily.
It is important to note that not all horses will benefit from this particular type of feed. For instance, horses that cannot get enough exercise will not need the high nutritional calorie levels of alfalfa. If a horse is not properly exercised, for whatever reason, and is eating a feed that is very high in nutrients, this horse could develop high levels of energy that needs to be expelled. This can make the horse agitated or irritable. Some owners refer to this as the horse being “hot.”
This type of feed is also not recommended for obese horses. Feeding alfalfa could cause the horse to continue to gain weight at an unhealthy rate.
You will also want to be aware that alfalfa can contain certain bugs such as blister beetles. You will need to check new bales of alfalfa for these bugs so that you do not create an infestation on your property.
Not only do you need to be aware of what to feed your horse, but you will also need to learn about how much to feed your horse. The best way to determine this will be to talk in-depth with your equine vet. This professional will be able to advise you concerning how much alfalfa you horse will need. They will also be able to advise you when it is time to change the amounts based on your horse’s changing phase of life.
