The Forager from Haygain is the ideal slow feeder that encourages a natural way of eating forage, so your horse stays healthy and happy! The Forager has been designed to simulate a horse’s natural, slow, and steady eating behavior. The design ensures only small, bite sized portions of hay can be taken at one time, and this has a number of physical and mental health benefits for horses that are stabled for long periods of time. This includes aiding in digestive health by providing a constant supply of forage, which not only protects the stomach but also promotes fermentation in the hindgut. The consistent chewing also maintains a flow of saliva, which is crucial for the stomach and digestion. In addition, slow feeding helps to combat stable boredom, discomfort, and vices. The Forager offers the ability to provide access to forage 24/7 without allowing horses to over-eat or gorge. This can be ideal for overweight or horses prone to laminitis. Plus the Forager helps to ensure a clean supply of forage with almost no waste, which saves time and money on mucking out and hay wastage. Easy to use, fill, and clean and can be flat packed for travel.
Features two interchangeable regulator grids letting you choose between two regulator difficulty levels – white (Easy) or green (Standard). The regulators are expected to wear over time and will need replacing. How often they are replaced will depend on the amount of use and force applied by the horse. EasyOn regulator click and secure system make filling the Forager quick and easy. The unique external metal slider prevents horses from bypassing or tipping the regulator. It also acts as a gauge so you can easily see from afar how much forage remains in the feeder. Strong top ring with four rubber fixings to ensure structural stability and absorb sound. The robust slit sides are designed to let in both air and light – this ensures horses are happy feeding to the very bottom, eating every last scrap, as well as allowing air to circulate through the forage. This unique features ensures no hay is wasted and the forager remains hygienic. The entire base can be filled with kiln dried sand to ensure maximum stability and, if necessary, the unit can be tied to the wall from the built in fixing points. Fully collapsible to allow for easy cleaning and portability.
