Benefits of Haygain Steamed Hay
The only scientifically proven way to purify hay and reduce the health threat from respirable dust, mold spores and pathogens.
High temperature steaming in a Haygain reduces airborne respirable dust in hay and haylage by up to 99%. This helps to avoid damaging exposure to respirable dust and acts as a good long term preventative approach to inflammation.
Steamed hay significantly reduces bacteria, fungi and mold in hay and haylage which can help to prevent digestive health issues as well as treat mild to severe problems such as colic and gastric ulcers.
Steaming hay with Haygain not only purifies the forage but it also increases the water content and this can increase a horse’s water intake by almost 3 times, keeping your horse hydrated throughout the seasons.
Get a waft of steamed hay and you'll want to eat it yourself! Four independent palatability studies demonstrated that steamed hay was more palatable and was the preferred choice over dry hay and haylage.
“It’s so good for getting rid of toxins, dust, bacteria, and the different weeds that can be in hay but you don’t always see. It has so many benefits for horses with allergies"

The Benefits of ComfortStall
A unique fully sealed, orthopedic and impermeable flooring system designed to ensure optimum comfort for your horse.
Stable air quality is greatly improved because the sealed impermeable one-piece Ironclad™ Top Cover design prevents the build-up of urea, bacteria and the resulting harmful ammonia.
Improves joint health. Improved movement, flexibility and hoof quality through enhanced support to joints, tendons and ligaments from the therapeutic properties of ComfortStall’s level surface that “springs” back with every step.
Whole body support
The padded flooring system provides the needed ‘give’ under the hip, shoulder and pastern bones when the horse lies down and rises. It's so comfortable horses lie down more often and get the all import REM sleep.
Eliminates hock sores
Eliminates hock sores caused by flooring. Thanks to the non-slip, non-abrasive surface horses can get up without scuffling. The horse's hooves sink into the padded floor to give grip when rising.
