Home / Overweight Horse

Do you struggle to control your horse's weight?

Evolutionarily, horses are designed to trickle feed rather than have starchy feeds several times a day, which is now more common practice. Horses in their natural habitat spend 60% of their time feeding whereasstabled horses spend just 10% of their time feeding

The high levels of carbohydrates are essential for energy, but consuming high levels of carbohydrate without appropriate exercise, particularly for stabled horses, can lead to excessive weight gain.

How can Haygain help?

The Forager slow feeder can make a significant contribution to reducing the intake, and rate of intake, of forage.

Mimicking trickle feeding the Forager is the natural way to slow the pace of eating, and helps to prevent gastic ulcers from increased chewing and the production of saliva.

It also provides a more natural feeding position to help drain the respiratory tract and prevent muscle tension in the back and neck, and stops cross-contamination of forage and bedding, and saves time and money in stable cleaning.
