Timothy is the most popular hay fed to performance horses. Timothy is a good source of copper and zinc and a great balance of protein and energy. Timothy Hay is grass hay that grows best in a cool season climate. Timothy hay is an exceptional roughage and fiber source. Timothy should be harvested pre-or early-bloom stage to ensure a high nutrient content. The first cutting usually has a higher weed content. The second cutting the quality decreases but less weeds, so the second cutting might be more desired for horses. Timothy has shallow roots which means more water to grow because it dries out faster than other hays.

Timothy hay is the most digestible of all hays and a late-maturing high fiber grass with a lower protein content. Horse owners have found that Timothy hay promotes a shiny coat, good digestion, bowel regularity, and a healthy energy level. It is also excellent for colic prone, protein-sensitive, and obese horses.

Timothy hay offers more grazing/chewing time so highly recommended for horses confined to a stall. Feeding Timothy can help satisfy your horse's natural urge to chew and graze when they are confined to stalls for long periods of time.
