ReadiGrass – The Natural Part of Your Horse’s Diet
ReadiGrass was developed by Friendship Estates 17 years ago and has been produced exclusively on our farm in Yorkshire ever since. As our flagship product, ReadiGrass has come to stand for quality and consistency in a unique product that horses and small animals love, we continually strive to keep the price competitive without sacrificing the high standard we have set.
‘ReadiGrass is a 100% natural feed, with all the goodness of ryegrass pastures captured in every bag. Made exclusively from British pastures, the unique low-temperature drying process removes the water, but leaves the fragrant grass aroma, vibrant colour and most importantly the high nutrient value of fresh grass. This gives a feed that is more nutritious than hay yet still contains the digestible fibre essential for every horse’s health’.
