[RC] TEff hay/endurance horses - Kathie Ford

Hello, I have a question for the vets or anybody else with some knowledge about this type of hay in regards to feeding it to an endurance horse.

One of my hay suppliers this year has had a lot of Teft hay. So I tried some. It seems like really nice hay. Very thin stemmed, nice and green and sweet smell to it. My horses don't leave even an ounce of it so no waste is great.

However, I was wondering on how this would be for an endurance horse on this hay.

I did see the analysis of the loads. Looks like the protein was about 11%, calcium and phosphorus were about even and a little selenium and other stuff in there.

I've liked it so much I've been purchasing it for several months now. I do mix it with other grass feeds such as Orchard, meadow, rye mixes etc. Sometimes Alf/grass mix, heavy on the grass as I don't care for Alfalfa.

So, any thoughts on this hay as far as a competing endurance horse feed? It looks like my supplier will keep it in supply as it is selling well.
