Seaweed is one of the staple foods of the Shetland Islands native ponies and sheep and the ponies, which are used to surviving in extremely harsh conditions, are regular visitors to the islands' beaches where they browse on seaweeds washed up by the tide.
In our Hoof and Health we use three different seaweed species as well as pure fine-cut Rosehip shells. The two kelp seaweeds, sourced from Scotland and Brittany, are Ascophyllum nodosum and Fucus vesiculosis which are both rich in essential nutrients such as Iodine, amino acids, vitamins and minerals. The third seaweed which is sourced from Ireland is a hard coral- like species commonly referred to as Calcified seaweed which is rich in calcium.
