Hydration Hay Blocks can be fed dry or soaked in water.
To soak, place one two-pound block in a large bucket. Add a minimum of five quarts of water. Allow product to absorb water prior to feeding (approximately ten minutes). To facilitate more uniform absorption, flip the hay block halfway through soaking time. Additional mixing by hand may further accelerate water absorption.
Designed to replace a portion or all of the forage in a horse’s diet. Replace forage on a 1:1 ratio. Each two pounds of dry hay can be replaced with one two-pound dry Hydration Hay block.
If replacing all forage in a horse’s diet, be sure to feed at a minimum rate of 1 to 1.2% of body weight (10 12 pounds/5 6 blocks for a 1,000-pound horse) with 2% of body weight preferred. Inadequate amounts of forage may lead to colic and other digestive disturbances.
