Nettles are rich in Iron and Vitamin C and most horses will happily eat them out in the fields once they have been chopped down an allowed to wilt so they loose their sting. Historically Nettles have been used to help support a healthy blood supply and circulation. Iron is needed for the production of red blood cells and haemoglobin. Vitamin C is an effective anti-oxidant, although this is not so essential for horses as they produce the enzyme, L-gulonolactone oxidase in their livers - which is responsible for turning glucose into Vitamin C. Nettles can be added into the horse's daily feed and we offer a wide variety of sizes from 500g to 5kg so you can order whatever quantity is convenient for you. . We include Nettles in several of our supplements for both dogs and horses. Including our Multi Flex & Multi Flex Gold, Cush X and Cush X Gold all of these supplements are suitable for " Horses and Ponies prone to laminitis.

*please note: we do not include feeding instructions on the packaging or include a scoop in the bag or tub. This is due to the consistency of straight herbs eg roots are more dense than leaves or flowers, and they can be given to a variety of species. For further research on using straight herbs for animals there are some good books available including Hilary Self's "A Modern Horse Herbal".
