Semhof organic green oat pellets LIGHT from the whole plant, harvested at the end of flowering, are an excellent supplementary feed for horses that should not gain further or lose weight. Green oats fit well into the stomach, intestinal tract and metabolism and do not cause stress as is the case when feeding cereal grains. In contrast to the pure cereal grain, the minimal starch contained in the pellets is distributed over the entire plant - the concentration is therefore very low, which is not least due to the earlier harvest time and the special oat variety for the LIGHT green oat. The energy content is therefore low, but the crude fiber is of very high quality and easy to digest. The Semhof organic green oat LIGHT is particularly suitable for horses that are sensitive to digestion and easy to feed; so also for horses with stomach ulcers. A suitable feed also for easy-to-feed horses, which, compared to cereal grains, are a milder energy feed to balance out their performance. Green oats could also be a suitable feed for better well-being in horses and special breeds that are sensitive to the metabolism.
Oats were named Medicinal Plant of the Year 2017. In addition to its grains, as it is traditionally used in horse feeding, it also provides additional remedies primarily through its straw and herbs. Oat straw can have a soothing effect on inflammatory skin diseases and itching due to the high proportion of silicon (silicic acid).
The herb of oats has a high proportion of bulk and trace elements and, like hemp, is rich in secondary plant substances such as anti-inflammatory flavonoids and immunomodulating saponins.

You can feed Semhof Organic Green Oat Pellets soaked or dry. When fed wet, a ratio of 1:2 (1 cup green oat pellets and 2 cups water) with a short swelling time of 10-45 minutes is ideal. Dry feeding is also possible for horses that eat slowly and thus salivate sufficiently. For smaller doses, e.g. as a treat, you can generally administer the pellets dry.
