How does it slow my horse down whilst reducing frustration?
The top holes are 3 inch x 1 inch this is a slow feed the bottom holes are 1.6 x 1.6 inch. This means your horse when its hungry and naturally more anxious they will be able to eat the first couple of kg of the hay slower than a standard hay net but quick enough not to cause frustration. Then once they have eaten this and not as hungry they can pick at the further few kg of hay making it last longer reduce stomach unclears and boredom.
How is the webbing kinder on there teeth and muscles?
The horse learns to eat between the webbing rather than taking a large mouthful and string stopping the hay coming out. The horse will try this for the first few minutes and will soon learn the webbing is too thick and they end up with no hay.

What are the benefits of the HayGrazer Play?
Its not just a slow feeder.
Improves horse physique and stable movement – The shape of the Play means your horse will stretch in different ways to follow the holes this reduces repetitive movement and sore or uneven muscle build up. It is also safe to be hung lower this makes the horse do desired stretches throughout the night.
Decrease frustration – The top of the play has larger holes then the bottom holes are smaller so the initial wade of hay can be eat relatively easy then as the play empties it get harder.
Mimics grazing – horses naturally search for grass, the holes are placed in such a way they have to use there lips to find the holes delicately if they try to snatch or grab the play will move or they will get a mouthful of hay so soon learn to eat delicately.
ALL THIS PUT TOGETHER SLOWS FEEDING DOWN WITHOUT THE HORSE REALLY KNOWING MAKING A HAPPIER HEALTHIER HORSE
Kinder on your horses teeth – due to eating between the webbing rather than string stopping the hay coming out the teeth experience less wear.
Reduced Dust – Even if your horse grabs the play and shakes it the material keeps the dust within the play it will then drop out of the mesh bottom.
MAKE YOUR LIFE EASY– much easier to fill, no knot so easy to hang plus ideal for soaking.
SAFETY COMES FIRST
The new material and metal clips are so strong we have included the break point within the rope loop. The safety rope has a break point of 75kg this can be hung directly to a metal ring but rather than breaking the rope it is still better for the string to break. If this happens now worries just send it back to us and we will re glue the loop and get it back to you the same week.
