FEED and BEDDING
Ashwood Farm is a dealer for Buckeye Nutrition products. We find Buckeye to be the best products on the nationwide market. Although we do not actively sell these products, we had to become a dealer to offer them to our own horses. Buckeye is manufactured in Ohio, and there are no local dealers. In order to feed the best product, we became a dealer.
Our horses eat a ration of the following:
Grow and Win, a vitamin and mineral pellet with Cosequin and hoof supplement integrated Ultimate Finish 40, an extruded nugget formulated to provide calories with out high sugar/starch loads Safe N Easy a high fiber, low carb source of nutrient and caloric intake
Senior horses have a special feed of Grow and Win, Equate Gut Health and Ultimate Finish .
Horses at Ashwood eat primarily top quality grass hay. Some horses are also supplemented with high quality, first cutting alfalfa.
Ashwood stalled horses are bedded on shavings. We have traditionally bedded on wood shavings, but have found a superior product in paper shavings. They are shredded unused telephone directories. They are much more absorbent than wood or straw, easy to clean, contain no dust, and are softer for the horses. These are available for purchase by individuals for $8.00/bag.
Our foaling mares will continue to foal on clean straw.
Due to our limited space, boarding is limited to those involved in the lesson and training program or consignment horses. Thank you for understanding!
To become a true horseman, you must emerse yourself in horses and love the horse with all of your heart. ALL CONTENT COPYRIGHT ASHWOOD FARM, LLC 2015
