- The Squidgypigs adore Nature’s Own Timothy Rich 5 a Day Hay so I was delighted to learn that Nature’s Own had released bags of the delicious dried flower and fruit mix to add to any hay.
- When I opened the Mix I was met with a wonderful minty-floral aroma.
- Although the golden marigold initially catches your eye, there is a really good variety of ingredients in the mix. It’s actually quite fun to sort through.
- All pieces are well dried and there is minimal dust in the bag.
- The bag is resealable which is always nice to see.
- I fed Nature’s Own 5 a Day Mix as both a hay ‘dressing’ and also neat as a treat.
- As you can see; as a neat treat Nature’s Own 5 a Day Mix becomes a competitive sport!
- Mixed with hay the mix is just as popular but with the additional benefit it makes even reluctant piggies more likely to gobble up the hay too.
- We all know that hay is an essential part of Guinea Pig digestive and dental health and I love that by making the 5 A Day mix available separately Nature’s Own are allowing anybody to have the benefit of its delicious mixture.
- This is great news for people who buy large bales of farm hay or perhaps have pigs with specific dietary and dental requirements.
- I would definitely recommend people that people with Guinea Pigs who are reluctant hay feeders try one of the delicious Nature’s Own mixes, they are a great way of igniting interest in even the most boring of hays.
- The Squidgypigs loved Nature’s Own 5 a Day Mix, its selection of inviting colours and mouth-watering flavours make it a great addition to any piggy menu.
