It is perfect for natives and ideal for overweight horses, ponies or donkeys, and those that maintain their weight easily.

When managing weight loss for equines suffering from laminitis and equine metabolic syndrome, vets recommend that calories need to be reduced to encourage weight loss; also the non-structural carbohydrate (NSC) content of the diet needs to be less than 10%. Honeychop Chopped Oat Straw has a NSC of 2.2% making it the idea feed for those needing to lose weight.
Its golden colour and soft texture makes it visually appealing and highly palatable. It is the lowest calorie fibre feed in the Honeychop range and can be used as a partial hay replacer, simply by exchanging the weight of hay with the same weight of Honeychop Chopped Oat Straw. Being a short chop it prolongs eating time, aids good digestion and keeps horses occupied for longer.
