Place one 2 lb. Purina Hydration Hay Horse Hay Block in a large bucket. Add a minimum of 5 quarts of water. Allow product to absorb water prior to feeding (approximately 10 minutes). To facilitate more uniform absorption, flip the hay block halfway through soaking time. Additional mixing by hand may further accelerate water absorption.
Designed to replace a portion or all of the forage in a horse's diet. Replace forage on a 1:1 ratio. Each 2 lb. of dry hay can be replaced with one 2 lb. dry Purina Hydration Hay Horse Hay Block.
If replacing all forage in a horse's diet, be sure to feed at a minimum rate of 1.0 to 1.2% of body weight (10-12 lb./ 5-6 blocks for a 1,000 lb. horse) with 2.0% of body weight preferred. Inadequate amounts of forage may lead to colic and other digestive disturbances.
