Slow Hay Feeder
The slow hay feeder manufactured in the UK by Haygain is an innovative feeder for horses that enables them to graze in comfort and slow down their eating pace, protecting their digestive system from health problems.
Providing horses with a slow hay feeder allows them to eat constant but regulated amounts of hay on a regular basis, reducing the risk of colic, gastric ulcers, laminitis and obesity. The slow hay feeder can be filled with hay that has previously been treated in a hay steamer, making it more palatable and reducing contamination risks.
Using a slow feeder encourages the horses to adopt a natural position when eating in a controlled environment and reduces the mouthful amounts, creating a protective layer in the horse's stomach and preventing health issues. With the slow feeder there is no cross-contamination between the horse feed and its bedding.

Slow hay feeder regulators
The slow hay feeder comes with two forage regulators, allowing a constant supply of horse feed through the openings and increasing the amounts of chewing the horse does, maintaining a flow of saliva which helps to regulate stomach acid and ensure the horses health. It is best not to use the slow hay feeder regulators for the first few days, while the horse gets accustomed to this new way of feeding and to lowering its head down inside. After the initial trial period, when the horse is confident, you can introduce the slow hay feeder standard regulator.
