Many barn and horse owners will agree, their horses deserve nothing less than the very best. This includes but is not limited to their paddock, supplements and tack, to the design and build of their stalls, including the doors, windows and flooring. In this article, we take a closer look at some of the equine feed solutions available to you, including hay feeders, and narrow down to some of the best options available.
Optimizer Hay Feeder
Made from durable plastic and completely Canadian, the Optimizer is another high-quality hay feeding option. It is The Optimizer fits two small square bales, has very little waste and keeps horses happy and busy. It has no sharp edges, as all corners are rounded and beveled. Two to four horses can eat comfortably at the same time.
The slide arm offers a smooth, one handed operation to help open and close the feeder easier. The slow feed netting hangs freely inside the feeder, conforming with the hay right to the bottom of the feeder.
To a horse, the smallest pieces of hay are the best tasting. As they feed through the net, some of the most delicate leaves are stripped off of the grasses or alfalfa. Since these are the tastiest parts to your horse, the Optimizer catches these pieces as they fall, reducing hay waste and keeping your horses happy.
