  • Includes carefully selected herbs – liquorice root, ground fennel, chamomile, ainseed and mint to keep your horse happy and healthy
  • The inclusion of grass pellets provides interest and texture
  • Naturally sweet, ideal for tempting fussy feeders
  • Free from artificial flavours, preservatives, molasses and straw

How To Get The Most Out Of Feeding Meadow Grass with Herbs

Dengie Meadow Grass with Herbs is a straight feed and although it contains natural nutrients it does not provide a balanced diet. We would recommend using a broad spectrum vitamin and mineral supplement such as Dengie Leisure or Performance Vits & Mins or alternatively a feed balancer such as Dengie Performance+ Balancer or Leisure Balancer to supply everything your horse or pony needs.
