A new way to feed apples & carrots
If you have experienced buying carrots and apples only to see them go off before you use them all, Apple Express and Carrot Express are for you.
These products are dried, so they last ages and you don't get any waste. Simply rehydrate the feed you need, when you need it.
A 750g tub of AppleExpress = approx. 4.5kg of apples.
A 1kg tub of Carrot Express = approx. 5kg of carrots.
How to use:
1) Add a handful of the product to water
2) Leave soaking for at least 20 minutes.
3) Use the rehydrated feed within 24 hours.

Smelt really good and my horses loved it
Had to know when you wanted to feed it so you were able to pre soak
I would not buy the product as it was quite time consuming
The apple and carrot express was easy to use, however once soaked could only be given in the horses feed good for covering up the taste of medication.
Not very good if your looking to give your horse a treat by hand as it was quite messy however all 3 of my horse ate both the apple and carrot.
Not realy for me as i had to soak it in the morning to feed to my horses later on in the day.
Controlled feeding without waste.
Dont think i would have bought it, but would buy now and recommend
Looking at the dried matter I wasn't convinced but after soaking it as directed I found it had a nice sweet smell and looked more appetizing. I normally put a cup of water in my feeds to dampen as neither of mine need sugar beet but found the carrotts/apple mix was a nicer alternative. My gelding can be fussy but both tucked in and licked the bowls clean. I think this would also be excellent for disguising medication in food. I like to give mine succulents and found this was a great way of controlling their intake without waste or over feeding.
The concept of the product is great. It saves wastage by using dehydrated apples and carrots - so you don't have to chuck unused bendy / moldy carrots away.
It is a bit of a faff having to soak them before use but that could just be me being disorganised. Also, you have to add a lot to the meals for it to be worth while because a handfull doesn't look a lot once it is mixed in the feed.
Would recommend as alternative use, not for everyday feeding.
Plus Points: The concept of the product is great. It saves wastage by using dehydrated apples and carrots - so you don't have to chuck unused bendy / moldy carrots away.
Negatives: It is a bit of a faff having to soak them before use but that could just be me being disorganised. Also, you have to add a lot to the meals for it to be worth while because a handfull doesn't look a lot once it is mixed in the feed.
Alternative use: I think they would be great to sprinkle in buckets of water to encourage a horse to drink. For example when competing or staying away from home!
Both products smelt really good once soaked We had more horses liking the apple bits than the carrot bits (humans agreed)
It was a bit messy feeding them once soaked; when soggy they stick to everything and the horses found it hard to take small peices out of our hands
I think I will stick to herbal treats and fresh carrots/apples
Carrots and Apples..
Both products smelt really good once soaked and we tried them as well as the horses

They loved it in their buckets and the excess water was reused in their feed
I would prefer something that does not need soaking for a day to day treat
The fussier horses did not take the treats
Can be stored longer than the fresh products
Quite costly compared to buying fresh products
Would consider buying apple, but not carrot
I sampled carrot express and apple express.
Each sample had to be mixed with a small amount of water and left to soak for at least 20 minutes. I found I had to leave them to soak overnight to get the best result.
The carrots still had to be drained from quite a lot of water even after this time. The amount you use "per serving" is probably only the equivalent of 1 small carrot or half an apple. As I feed carrots regularly to my horse i'd go through a tub of carrot express very fast and so are not very economical. It's cheaper and easier to buy a net of carrots.
I prefered the apple express, and as I only give my horse apples now and then as a treat it would be a handy way for me to give him an "apple fix" without having to buy a bag of apples all at once.
I would buy apple express, but not carrot express.
