Linseed-thistle oil makes marstall Wiesen-Heu a dust and molasses-free hay alternative. This loose chaff with certified origin in Germany‘s Allgäu region is not only suitable as a partial hay substitute but also for promoting longer feeding periods – it can also be soaked for horses with dental problems and/or allergies.

marstall Wiesen-Heu is made from carefully dried hay from highly diverse Allgäu meadows, largely preserving its natural nutrients, vitamins and minerals. Wiesen-Heu is harvested late, this makes it low in fructans and starches and is thus ideal for horses with metabolic problems.


Wiesen-Heu encourages chewing, which in turn stimulates saliva production. It can be used either as a base feed or as a hay replacement or supplement. When mixed with concentrate feed it will also lengthen feeding periods, which is good for the stomach and for digestion.


The addition of linseed-thistle oil makes Wiesen-Heu a source of anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids, liver-promoting silymarin from milk thistle and natural vitamin E. Its nutritional value is higher than normal hay or silage, which means that less concentrate feed is required.


Soaking the loose chaff is not required but recommended for older horses or horses with dental problems.

Feeding advice

Increase the amount slowly at the beginning or mix the Wiesen-Heu with water if it is fed as hay substitute. If the horse eats hastily, is nervous, old or drinks little, we recommend to mix Wiesen-Heu 1:1 or 1:2 with water. Soaking is not necessary!
