- No preservatives, additives, binders, GMO ingredients, waste byproducts, chemical processing or straw. Tested pesticide-free.
Thunderbrooks Hay Cobs are imported from Germany (Bavarian alpine region) and they are specially made to be fed dry, by using a technique that compresses them into very hard nuts. This means that they do not crumble or produce dust when broken in two. It also encourages the horse to chew them thoroughly and produce saliva in doing so, to break them down further.
Soaking Thunderbrooks Hay Cobs
Literally thousands of tons of this type of Haycob are sold across mainland Europe where they are very popular, all being fed dry. However, it is always possible (just like with any chaff, nut, cube, pieces of apple, carrot, etc) that if a horse bolts its feed by eating quickly and not chewing sufficiently, that it can be at risk of choke.
If you have found this to be the case with your horse, then we would recommend you take care when feeding any chaff or nut in the dry form (unless you feed one Haycob at a time), but instead soak them into a mash.
Because they are so tightly compressed, they will take longer to soak and make into a mash. We recommend that you soak for at least 3 hours, or preferably overnight to make sure there are no hard centres left in the mash. We also recommend that when feeding our Haycobs dry, they must be fed separately, not as part of a mash (or sprinkled on top) as your horse must be able to chew them thoroughly.
Benefits of Thunderbrooks Hay Cobs
Thunderbrooks hay cobs are an innovative new product that is quickly gaining popularity among horse owners. These cobs are a great option for horse owners who are looking for an alternative to traditional hay bales.
One of the main benefits of Thunderbrooks hay cobs is that they are easy to store and transport. Traditional hay bales can be large and heavy, making them difficult to move and store. Thunderbrooks hay cobs, on the other hand, are much smaller and lighter, making them easy to move and store. They are also compressed, which means they take up less space than traditional hay bales, making them an ideal choice for horse owners with limited barn space.
Another benefit of Thunderbrooks hay cobs is that they are long-lasting. These cobs are made from high-quality, compressed hay that has been treated with a special process to preserve its nutritional value. This means that the hay in the cobs will stay fresh for longer, which is especially beneficial for horse owners who have to store their hay for an extended period of time.
Thunderbrooks hay cobs are also a great option for horse owners who want to reduce hay wastage. Unlike traditional hay bales, which can become unraveled and leave hay on the ground, these cobs are tightly compressed, which means that horses are less likely to leave hay on the ground. This helps to keep the barn cleaner and reduces the risk of mold and bacteria growth.
Additionally, Thunderbrooks hay cobs are also more convenient to feed than traditional hay bales. They can be easily broken up and fed by hand or with a hay net, making it easier for horse owners to control the amount of hay their horses are eating. This is especially beneficial for horses with metabolic issues or those that need to be on a diet.
In conclusion, Thunderbrooks hay cobs are a great alternative to traditional hay bales. They are easy to store, transport, and feed, and have a long-lasting freshness. They also help to reduce hay wastage and are a convenient option for horse owners. If you are looking for a new way to feed your horse hay, Thunderbrooks hay cobs is a product worth considering.
