    Default Purina Hay Cubes for hind gut ulcers?

    I am trying these on my guy for change of weather colic. A friend
    uses them for horses who won't drink on long trailer rides. Those
    of you who have horses with irritated hindguts may find these
    very benefical. It is a brick of compressed hay,you put it in a
    bucket, add water and in ten minutes you have a bucket of wet
    mushy fiber.

    Alfalfa and hay cubes have been around forever. I've used them for years to feed toothless seniors and to hydrate before road trips. Nothing new here.

    Are you thinking of "Hydration Hay?"

    I saw it at Fair Hill last month and thought it looked really interesting, but didn't ask about pricing, as it's not something that I need at the moment.
    It did appear to soak thoroughly much more quickly than any hay cubes or pellets that I've dealt with, and it had a very nice consistency once soaked.

    I would use soaked timothy/alfalfa cubes or simply add water to their grain.
