Physical and Psychological Health

Haygain's Forager simulates natural grazing which protects physical health and helps to prevent psychological upsets like stable vices. 

  • The Forager helps a horse to mimic a natural eating position of the head low and straight to the ground. The benefits of a low eating position include protecting the eyes and allowing for natural respiratory drainage. It's also important for correct teeth and jaw movement. 

  • By allowing a horse to eat in a straight downward motion, The Forager protects muscles, joints, tendons and ligaments from any stress and strain that can be associated with other methods of slow feeding.  

  • The Forager can help horses with stall boredom, vices or anxiety by  providing them with a constant access to forage. Vices such as crib biting, kicking, pacing, weaving and wind sucking often occur from boredom or anxiety. The Forager can significantly increase the feeding time (see chart in Weight Management).
