Testimonal of Danielle and Serge- Laitoibleu Stable
My wife and I have combined our passions by unifying our destinies: the care and wellbeing of horses and the production of the best hay possible.
In 1992, at our stable where we board horses, we began receiving racehorses who needed special rest and care, and many horses with breathing problems.
With a constant drive for improvement, we decided to standardize our hay by mixing bales with different fiber qualities (young hay and mature hay). When we saw the amount of the dust rising from the forage mix, it became clear to us that we had to find a way to eliminate it.
Thus, thanks to a process allowing us to mix several types of forage, with the addition of soybean oil, we saw our dusty hay turn into soft and uniform hay close to grazing texture.
We began by feeding this hay to our horses; and to our surprise their coats became shiny and radiant and their big bloated hay bellies disappeared!
Seeing the results on our horses, our boarders very quickly demanded that their horses also be fed our new famous hay. The effects on their horses were the same.
With these wonderful and surprising results, we pushed the envelope and fed it to the sick horses, those struggling with lung problems. Again, the effects were incredible.
The astounding results we saw on the sick horses prompted us to go look for horses having been diagnosed with severe breathing diseases online. We adopted them, and fed them our hay. With each horse, we observed the normalization of their respiratory functioning in a few days, and then the complete disappearance of all of their symptoms.
Since 2008, we have completely changed the way we feed our stable's 65 horses. Many of them arrived with serious health problems but all are now doing well and not one has had a recurrent crisis (to the delight of our veterinarians!).
Here's what we've seen for the past eight years:
- The complete disappearance of the symptoms of moderate to severe heaves
- The complete disappearance of colic;
- The disappearance of cases of laminitis;
- Our horses have lustrous coats year-round;
- Our horses have more energy at work;
Now we can spend several months without hearing a horse cough and our worries of colic have disappeared. One thing is certain, I no longer see the hay in the same way!
