I love feed samples. It is just so fun to try out different food for the ponies. Of course, they usually come with a short conversation about the ponies and what they need, which means I get some samples of food that are actually recommended for them and not just random food which would not be suitable. I lugged a huge range of samples all the way back from Burghley and I tried every single one.
It works too – I have actually bought a bag of Allen and Page’s Fast Fibre to try on the strength of the sample I got at Burghley. It has lots of things to recommend it but I have to admit that the fact it can be served warm was a huge draw for me!
This week Christmas came early for the ponies as we received a huge box of samples from Mikholl Ltd. This is a new feed company based in the UK who makes organic horse feeds from what sounds like great ingredients. They come in recyclable packaging too which is a excellent point for me – I love the sample bags!
They have only just arrived so I can’t comment much on them yet except to say that the ponies seem to like the alfalfa treats and the apple flakes went down well too. I am very excited about trying them though.
