Jamie talks about her experiences with the Haygain Hay Steamer
Luebbo had a bit of a cough last summer...since he's been on the Haygain, he hasn't coughed at all!"
"Luebbo had a little bit of a cough last summer. He'd cough once or twice when I started working him, then it would go away and come back. Ever since he's been on the Haygain, he hasn't coughed at all!”.
"I was shocked by how fast I saw a difference. His appetite has improved dramatically too - he used to leave a lot of hay waste in his stall. With Haygain steamed hay, he eats every piece we feed him! I love knowing that it's 99% free of dust, mould and bacteria. We plan to put all our horses on Haygain now!".
