Gold Coast Press Release

October 20, 2014- Wellington, Florida- Eastern Townships Acreages Equine, a superb and ultra-specialized Equine science hay producer in southern Quebec, which has the best climate to produce specific quality equine hay, has joined forces with Gold Coast Feed in Wellington Florida to supply the elite sport horses in Wellington with a hay that consists of only the best ingredients for horses. ETA-Equine takes pride in the time and research they have invested to produce a hay mix blend that is specifically for horses. These blends provide the right amount of protein while low in sugars to give your horse the focused and controllable energy it needs for competition.

ETA-Equine hay comes in two mix blends, the Townships Blend, baled in black string and the Appalachian Blend, baled in white string. The Townships Blend is made up of Timothy, Brome, and Orchard, the higher proportion being Timothy. It averages 9% protein. The Appalachian Blend is made up of Timothy, Brome, Orchard, and Clover, the higher proportion also being Timothy with an average 12% protein. Both blends have registered proprietary stem to leaf ratios needed for proper equine diets.  All shipments are lab analyzed. ETA-Equine is looking forward to the relationship with Gold Coast Feed and the opportunity to provide the sport horse world in Wellington with exactly the type of hay they need and deserve.

Mike Samson, ETA-Equine’s president and CEO explains. “The goal of ETA-Equine hay is solely to help produce sounder and stronger horses for the 3 major classical equine disciplines. It is now very well documented that horses need proper equine leaf to stem ratio hay for their specific complex equine digestive system. This leaf to stem ratio is where ETA-Equine differentiates itself from other hay producers. We have developed with the best labs and university research the optimal ratios that are proprietary to ETA-Equine. The objective is not as much the type of hay and grass but rather the proper mixture to optimize the horse’s digestive system and get as a result a well-balanced nutritional factor without at the same time hindering the emotional or psychological factor for training and competition. The look of the hay is not an objective but lab tests and riders results are at ETA-Equine. This is why the best classical competitors trust and feed ETA-Equine hay. Competitors trust Gold Coast Feed as great and efficient suppliers, thriving to better the competition level and training of all classical disciplines, making them our best partner to bring you the ETA-Equine blends of hay. I don’t want trainers and riders to just trust our word for it, they just need to look up our ETA-Equine’s Masters Circle Team of riders such as Wellington’s Arlene “Tuny” Page and read what is said about our constant developing line of products. ETA-Equine doesn’t buy endorsements, we earn them by working closely with equine athletes!” ( )

I think that it is great that ETA-Equine hay comes with a nutrition report, which is very important for customers who have horses with dietary issues,” said Barbara Stanfield, Director of Sales, at Gold Coast Feed
