Benefits of slow-feeding with the Haygain Forager
The way we approach feeding horses today is very different from their natural behaviour, where they would spend:
- 60% grazing
- 40% exhibiting other natural herd behaviours
Many horse owners feed high-energy concentrate meals 2 to 3 times a day with little forage available, leaving the average stabled horse spending:
- 10% feeding
- 90% exhibiting other behaviours
Limited access to forage can multiply heart rates by up to 4 at the time of feeding¹, and can lead to laminitis, gastric ulcers, colic, obesity and stable vices².
Horses are trickle-feeders and the health of their gastrointestinal tract and overall well-being is dependent on the consumption of small, regular meals throughout the day and night. Slow-feeding allows to increase the intake by 2-3 times, which helps reduce digestive, metabolism and stable vice issues¹.
Feeding forage at a natural pace: That’s pure horse sense.
The scientifically-designed Haygain Forager, developed in cooperation with the Royal Agricultural University, bridges the gap between natural behaviour and stable routine by regulating your horse’s eating pace.
