Always have hay available for your horses, naturally.
Mimic natural grazing—horses eat slowly with their heads down in a natural position.
Control consumption with slow-feed netting.
Create a safe herd environment for feeding with 2-4 horses eating together at a single OptiMizer.
Get peace of mind knowing that your horses always have hay.
Load two bales of hay in less than a minute.
Feed once a day, saving multiple trips back and forth.
Take advantage of the benefits that come from slow-feed hay bags without the loading time.
Stop Wasting Hay
Prevent hay from falling loose on the ground. After all, up to 50% of hay fed directly from the ground ends up being wasted.
Keep hay clean since your horses can sort through each flake to find their favourite bits without stepping on and dirtying the hay.
Spend less time cleaning up uneaten, soiled hay.
My horse is a 17 year old, off-the-track thoroughbred. She lived outside all last winter in a small herd with 7 other horses. We use OptiMizers at our barn and the horses always have access to hay. My mare is a hard keeper, but by getting the right amount of hay, whenever she wanted it, it was the first winter that she did not need a blanket or extra grain.

We have 8 horses, so we used 3 OptiMizers last winter. We filled them one time a day or so, even on the worst days, and used a lot less hay this year. I am confident that the OptiMizers will pay for themselves in the amount of money we save in otherwise ruined hay.

I have been using slow feed hay bags for years. I needed at least 5 or 6 bags a day in the winter to feed 3 horses. Last winter, I used the OptiMizer. I could slow feed 2 bales of hay in the OptiMizer and saved so much time not having to refill bags every day. Plus, I noticed it was a lot cleaner in the spring. The OptiMizer is really a "hay miser" when it comes to not wasting hay.
