  • The Forager enables horses to eat slowly, in small bites and over several hours. As a grazing animal, the horse has a digestive system that is designed to eat this way. In the wild, horses spend up to 18 hours a day grazing. 

  • Ulcer and colic risks can be reduced by maintaining a steady supply of forage in the digestive tract. 

  • Extended chewing time creates a steady supply of saliva that can buffer the stomach lining from naturally occurring gastric acid.

Did you know?

Optimum digestive health requires a constant supply of forage.

Equine Gastric Ulcer Syndrome (EGUS) affects up to 63% of performance horses and 93% of racehorses in training.

  • The Forager allows horses to eat with their head in a lowered position. This facilitates natural drainage of respiratory particles. 

  • Eating with a natural, head-lowered position maintains a natural posture for the horse’s head, neck and jaw. Conversely, eating from a wall-hung hay net requires an unnatural neck-spine alignment. This can be exacerbated as the horse yanks hay from the net. 

  • Longer mealtimes make for happier horses that are less prone to boredom behaviors including cribbing, pawing and stall walking. 

Did you know?

Extending mealtimes keeps horses happily occupied for much of the day. It reduces food scarcity stress and leaves less time for boredom behaviours like cribbing and box/stall walking.

  • The Forager contains hay in a durable, ventilated cylinder that keeps it clean and prevents the waste of hay being trampled into bedding and manure. 

  • Ideal for keeping hygienic Haygain Steamed Hay clean and appetising!

  • Extended mealtimes are especially beneficial for horses that require restricted diets. Intermittent feeding that is common in modern horse management can trigger fat storing responses that can lead to obesity.

  • The Forager’s external ring lowers as the horse consumes its meal. This makes it easy to monitor consumption, which is part of managing our horse’s weight.
