FAQ:

  • Can my horse get its head or foot stuck?
    • We cannot guarantee that any horse will not try to put its feet inside the Hay-Saver however all gaps are kept to a minimum size so a horse should not have any problems with trapping. Of course the horse is designed to put its head in the feeder to eat directly through the grills.

  • Can I only use Hay in The Hay -Saver?
    • NO!! You can use Hay, haylage & even soaked hay,

  • How can I also use the Hay-Saver to soak hay, or as a water trough?
    • The Hay Saver can easily be drilled with a 1” hole to take a standard water butt tap. To use as a water trough simply remove the lid and fill with water- the full capacity is 250 Litres.

  • Can my horse reach all the way to the bottom of the Hay-Saver to get all of the hay out?
    • Yes!** As the hay is eaten the grill will simply drop down to the bottom of the feeder. The trickle feeding system will also slow the feeding process down by upto 50% as the horse has to nibble and work for its feed.

  • How much hay can you get in?
    • Each hay saver can hold up to one small rectangular bale of hay (approx 20KG)

  • My horse can be playful. Can he get the lid off?
    • no, unless it hasn’t been closed properly.

  • Toppling - What will happen if my horse tips the Hay Saver over?
    • The grill will stop the hay from falling onto the floor. So very little hay will be wasted – if any!
    • Water - How can I deal with the small amount of water that sometimes accumulates in the bottom of the Hay Saver?

We recommend that the Hay-Saver is filled daily with forage. Each time you re-fill the feeder simply empty any water out then. The container itself will limit the amount of rain damaging your hay by protecting it from the elements. You can also drill drainage holes if you dont intend to use it as water trough.

  • What happens in high winds?
    • The hay saver itself weighs 12KG so should not easily blow away! However if you are in an extremely windy position we recommend simply weighing it down with some bricks.

  • How many horses can use the Hay-Saver?
    • It is suitable for three ponies or two horses to eat from at once.

Caution: Ensure that the hay you place into The Hay-Saver is not overly compressed. It is advisable to separate some hay or remove a few biscuits, allowing your horse to feed comfortably and without any difficulties.

**the grill stops “dropping” to the base of the tub 8” (20cm ) from the bottom of the tub, however the horse can then tilt the grill and reach any remaining hay at this point it sits 3” (7.5cm) from the base of the tub. Generally by the time the grill is 8” away from the bottom of the tub there is not enough hay left to gorge on. It is just the scraps & seeds!

Super Happy with Hay Saver

Just purchased my second Hay Saver as the first one was so successful. I have one horse who can eat twice as fast as her paddock mate hence the need for a second one. Slowing down speedy guts is also preventing her getting colic. The mares bounce and roll the bins all over the paddock with no harm to the horses or the Hay Savers which are super tough. I also save money as they don’t waste hay by dropping it on the ground and trampling on it. Super happy with the Hay Savers.

Great Hay Saver

It took my suspicious mate a couple of days to really get the hang of using the hay saver. But she is completely happy with it now. It has reduced the wastage of hay by so much. I have this undercover , I hope this being a UK product can cope with the high UV here in Australia but only time will tell. Very happy with this purchase so far

Happy horse

My Arab riding pony ( sm galloway) seems quite happy feeding from it. Upends it occasionally but no problems with that. So far it keeps him happily fed and occupied. Hes not an aggressive feeder or a guts so it works well for him. Im not sure it would work so well for all horses, but its perfect for him & saves me petrol & time, only needing to check & feed once per day. The cable tie is not ideal, I broke it, then fixed it, then the horse then broke it. I use a spur strap at the moment to fasten the lid down.
PS..... Purchase was easy & delivery to a regional city was fast.

Haysaver

I really like the Hay Saver. No mess, easy to move around. For the young ones I break the biscuits up so it's easier for them, the older horses I stick a full bail in and don't break it up and it definitely works as a slow feeder they can't just hook in
