HorseHage Sponsors Donkey Classes at Llansawel Show
HorseHage is to continue its sponsorship of the donkey classes at the annual Llansawel Show.
The winners of each of the nine classes will receive a bag of Mollichaff Donkey – a highly palatable, complete feed formulated specially for donkeys and each competitor will also receive a free sample of Mollichaff Donkey for their animal to try.
The Llansawel Show has nine donkey classes this year including the usual breed and fun classes plus a new addition to the schedule – ‘Have a Go – Donkey Agility’ class.
The show is a very popular event with all the usual horticultural, craft, cookery and livestock classes and takes place at Llansawel in Carmarthenshire on 12th September 2015.
Said Chris Tar of HorseHage: “Many people do not realise that donkeys require a very different feeding regime compared to horses. They are desert animals and in their natural habitat they have evolved to survive in some very harsh environments and will therefore browse much coarser, fibrous herbage than horses, eating little and often. They have a much lower energy requirement than horses and can easily become overweight, therefore lush pasture is best avoided.”
Mollichaff Donkey is specifically formulated for donkeys and is low in sugar, starch and energy and contains a balanced blend of dried grass, fibre pellets, oat straw and soya oil with camomile, mint and lemon balm. It also contains a broad spectrum vitamin and mineral supplement which includes limestone and magnesium.For further information please call the HorseHage Helpline on 01803 527257 or visit www.horsehage.co.uk
