Why We Love This

Hydration Hay Original Horse Hay Block is a blend of quality grass and alfalfa that has been compressed into a convenient lightweight block. Simply drop the block into a bucket of water and it will quickly absorb water to make moist, palatable hay. A great way to deliver consistent, quality nutrition in a convenient, lightweight, easy-to-feed compressed block that horses love! 



Place one 2-lb Hydration Hay Horse Hay Block in a large bucket. Add a minimum of 5.5 quarts of water. Allow product to absorb water prior to feeding (approximately 10 minutes). Recommended for all horses at all life stages.

    Hydration Hay® is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 20.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! I have this on hand for times my horse has to be in due to bad weather or for sudden weather changes when he might be less likely to adjust his water intake. I recently used it to introduce hay slowly after an impaction colic. He didn't want to drink but would slurp this up, which helped keep him hydrated until his normal thirst kicked in.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Love! Originally bought this for my horse as a treat during the winter. He stays in pretty consistent work all year round and I bought this to ensure he stayed hydrated properly throughout winter and this does just what I needed it to! I do feed this to him year round as he loves it and it keeps him hydrated during those hot summer days! I just throw it in a bucket of water and let it soak while i tack up and then flip the block before i get on. By the time I get off, it has soaked up all the water and it ready to give him after he is cooled down. I like to add a little more before I put it in his bucket as my horse just likes it really soupy, but it is really just personal preference. Although i originally purchased this for my own horse, we have a few older horses as well as an OTTB who was just recently brought off the track that we started feeding this to them for lunch. They all really like it and it helps keep them hydrated as well as it being easy to munch on as it is soaked in water and turns into a soupy mush. I really like it for our OTTB to help put a little weight on him. Every horse I have presented this to has absolutely loved it and licks the bucket clean! If you have a picky eater, hard keeper, older horse, or really any horse, this product is a go to! Really great for hydration, easy for them to eat, and a very nutritious snack!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have for my horse that can no longer eat regular hay. This provides long stem fiber whereas soaked pellets do not. Product ready to go in 10 minutes, very convenient.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for my very old horse! Hydration hay helped my 34 year old horse gain weight and be healthy again! He has trouble chewing regular hay, and hay cubes didn't agree with him. I'm very happy my vet recommended this because it has helped him put on a ton of weight and he is feeling so much better!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Suprised that they ate it! The horse I was going to transport is pretty picky and I wanted to make sure he stayed hydrated going across 3 states. I gave this in warm water and he liked it. Once it was cold I added a little apple juice to see if he would eat more and he did. I will keep these on hand for camping too!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A life saver Have old and retired horses, three with significant colic history. In this off and on horrible cold winter, none of them will drink adequately. They love this stuff when it is soaked in hot water and happily slurp it down. I add more water till it is almost hay soup. Have used other compressed hays, and this one is by far the best.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT PRODUCT !!! We have a pony that is approximately 35 years old - she has very few teeth left. She has no problem eating her sweet feed, but cannot chew hay or even grass. She can "crop" grass but when she gets a mouth full, she has to spit it out because she cannot chew it. Purina's Hydration Hay solved our "roughage/forage" problem. THANK YOU PURINA for saving our pony !!!!!
