Forage Isn't Supposed to be Brown...

We've all read the Dr. Seuss Children's Book Green Eggs and Ham.  Never did I think this book would remind me so much of our forage feeds.  Lucerne Farms is freshly baled hay from the fields of Maine.  It is crisp and green when it is cut, high temperature dried to lock-in the natural nutrition and mixed with soybean oil or molasses. 

Now, you may be asking yourself "why on earth does that remind you of the book Green Eggs and Ham?"  Well, here is why:  Sam continuously tries to get another Seussian character to try green eggs and ham.  I quote: "Do you like green eggs and ham? I do not like them Sam I am. I do not like green eggs and ham."  Sam does not give up.  Toward the end of the book, Sam says: "You do not like them so you say, try them try them and you may.  Try them and you may I say! Sam, if you will let me be, I will try them and you'll see... MMM I like green eggs and ham! I do, I do Sam I am!"

My point with referencing Dr. Seuss' book is this: Lucerne Farms forage is blended with soybean oil or molasses.  It coats the forage with a brownish color.  The product may not be the bright, vibrant green you expect out of fresh hay, but I can assure you it is fresh, and more nutritious for your horse than most.  Don't judge the forage by the color- as Sam said, try it, try it and you may (love it). 

Each bag has a guaranteed analysis so you know what you are getting in each bag.  Once you try it, let us know if your horse loves it!
