Please note: the Forager is suitable for most hay types, however the use of long stem forage is not recommended as it may cause your horse frustration.

✓ The Forage Regulator, with its many differently shaped and sized holes, as well as its specific combination of sturdiness and flexibility, allows your horse to mimic natural grazing behaviour. We have by now even developed a word for the extensive science behind our Regulator: we call it "Gridology"!


✓ The “EasyOn” click-and-secure system allows effortless filling of the forager and changing of the regulators.


✓ The 4 air and light shafts on the sides of the Forager make sure your horse feels comfortable eating its forage all the way to the end, while also ventilating your horse’s forage.


✓ The shiny metal ring on the outside goes down as your horse happily grazes and it therefore acts as a gauge; you can easily see from afar how much your horse has eaten and how much forage remains.


✓ The dimensions of the Forager have been designed to make sure your horse feels comfortable using it, while also maintaining a natural feeding position. During our research we discovered which colours appealed to horses, and the light colours for the top ring and regulator were picked as a result.


✓ The entire base of the Forager can be filled with sand to maximise its stability. If necessary, you can also easily tie the Forager to a wall from the Forager’s built-in fixing points.


✓ The water drain points on the base of the Forager make sure that it can be easily cleaned. For more rigorous cleaning, you can swiftly break the whole Forager down into component parts, and easily reassemble it after cleaning.


✓ Your Haygain Forager comes with a 1 year warranty. This warranty does not cover the regulators. For more information about the warranty, you can contact info@haygain.com.


Advice


Initially, start with no regulator for the first few days, while the horse becomes accustomed to this method of feeding and lowering its head inside.


You may find, after a period, that the horse adapts to the easy regulator and learns how to extract the forage more quickly. At this point, the standard regulator can be introduced.





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.


It comes with two different forage regulators (patent pending), which have apertures of different shapes and sizes. These help your horse to naturally forage around by pulling the hay through the various holes a bit at a time, without causing stress - just like grazing in nature!
