In France, Sainfoin ("sain foin") is literally translated as "healthy hay". It owes its name as an old cultivated plant to its excellent health-promoting properties in many areas. Due to industrialisation in agriculture, it was relatively unknown for a long time and has recently become increasingly popular again, as medication and therapies alone no longer achieve the desired results in many areas.

You can feed Semhof Organic Esparsette soaked or dry. When fed wet, a ratio of 1:1 to 1:2 (1 cup of sainfoin pellets and 1-2 cups of water) with a short swelling time of 10-30 minutes is ideal. Dry feeding is also possible for horses that eat slowly and thus salivate sufficiently. For smaller doses, you can generally administer the pellets dry. Also suitable for dosage via automatic feeders.
