The healthiest horse keeping situations allow horses to eat as nature intended: in small bites, over several hours and with their head in a lowered position. Haygain’s bundle of 8 Forager Slow Feeders allows all your horses to eat this way. Keep your horses happy and healthy and your stable floors free of wasted hay.
Save money, too: 8 Foragers for the price of 7! This bundle is great for barns!
As grazing animals, horses have digestive systems that are designed to process forage in small quantities over several hours. The Forager Slow Feeder facilitates this in modern horse management by extending mealtimes without frustrating the horses in your care. More time eating equals less time for boredom behaviors and food scarcity stress, especially for horses on restricted diets.
Prolonged chewing produces saliva that protects the horse’s stomach lining from naturally occurring acids. This helps reduce ulcer risk.
The Forager facilitates eating in a lowered-head position. This allows drainage of respirable particles and natural feeding posture in the jaw, neck and back.
Containing hay off the floor keeps it clean and reduces the contamination and waste of forage trampled into bedding, manure and urine. Eases cleaning for your maintenance crew.
