    Hay Lucerne Roll Large

    Pros of Lucerne:
    It is a prime quality hay that is the source of vitamins A, K, E, and helps boost your horse’s protein and calcium levels. This type of horse food is also low in phosphorous. Lucerne is a valuable source of energy, and it can help keep your horse’s weight in check. Due to the level of proteins, it is very useful for feeding horses that are growing, horses in intense work, or mares used for breeding.

    The fiber found in Lucerne is a great source of the energy. Some fibers are digestible and some are not. The higher the level of digestible fibers, the lower the level of the indigestible ones. In the case of Lucerne, this also means more energy. If you want to increase the weight of your horse, feeding it with Lucerne is a good idea. On the other hand, if your horse has a satisfactory weight, staying away from this particular type of hay would be wiser. Note that whenever you are making changes in the fiber source — by switching from grass to legume hay and vice-versa — the adjustment should be done gently and gradually. Why? It takes some time for the microbes inside a horse’s intestines to get used to alterations in their diet.

    Lucerne is also rich in calcium, which can be both good and bad, depending on the other ingredients in your horse’s daily food intake. The level of calcium found in alfalfa surpasses the necessary daily requirements. Therefore it should be given in small doses. The presence of calcium is in direct connection with the presence of phosphorus. Be aware that the amount of phosphorus should always remain smaller than calcium from 1,5:1 to 3:1 – calcium:phosphorus.
