Light Chaff

The perfect low calorie option for the good-doer

Targeted At

Good-doers and the laminitis-prone being fed Lo-Cal balancer

Good-doers requiring a partial or complete forage replacement

Those on limited grazing or forage yet needing to control calorie intake

Light Chaff is a blend of high-temperature dried alfalfa and oat straw with a sprinkling of mint and a very light dressing of soya oil, which encourages a shiny coat.  It is high fibre and low calorie, as well as having a low starch and sugar content, so is ideal for good-doers, those prone to laminitis and those on a calorie-controlled diet.  Indeed Light Chaff is the perfect accompaniment to Lo-Cal balancer, which provides essential vitamins, minerals and quality protein without additional calories. 
 
This combination is preferable to under feeding a “fortified” chaff, or one containing nutrients to support healthy hoof growth, as feeding the recommended amount of Lo-Cal balancer, plus as much or as little Light Chaff as you choose, will ensure your horse or pony doesn’t miss out on essential nutrient whilst also keeping calorie-intake down.  Light Chaff is perfect for feeding to good-doers on limited grazing, as it can be fed to help maintain fibre intake without making a significant calorie contribution to the overall diet.
