Slow Feed Hay Feeder

Micro Mini OptiMizer

USD $925.00

At 22” tall, the MicroMini OptiMizer is perfect for ponies and minis! It is a full capacity OptiMizer produced without the legs. Drainage holes are conveniently located on the side.

The MicroMini holds two small square bales or up to 150 pounds of hay from large square or round bales. Simply un-clip the slide arm, open the top, add your hay, cut and remove the twine, slide the net back over, and re-clip the slide arm. That’s it! You’ve slow fed two bales of hay in under a minute.

If you would prefer a different sized OptiNet to meet the anatomical, dietary, and/or behavioral requirements of your herd, please select either the large or small options. All 3 sizes use the proven durable and gentle netting.


The MicroMini OptiMizer is delivered fully assembled. Hand holds on the front and back make it easy to move around the paddock by hand. 

Smooth, one handed operation of the slide arm quickly opens and closes the feeder. 


All corners are rounded with 1″ diameters, making a smooth and safe surface if rubbed against.

Slow feed netting hangs inside the feeder and conforms over the hay from the top to the bottom of the feeder.


The tiniest bits are the tastiest. With an OptiMizer, these delicate leaves aren’t lost to the ground but remain within the manger.

Drain the MicroMini by simply tilting it from the front!



What Our Users Say

So nice, we bought it twice! The Optimizer slow feeder.  With the money that we saved on our first purchase, we purchased a second feeder a year later, we monitored the wasted hay from ground feeding, hay huts and the Optimizer. Hands down the Optimizer saved us money compared to the other two hay feed methods.

If you are looking for a safe and reliable hay feeding solution, that will save you money, the Optimizer is the one for you.

My horse is a 17 year old, off-the-track thoroughbred who lives outside all year. She's a hard keeper, but by getting her the right amount of hay, whenever she wanted it, it was the first winter she didn't need an extra blanket.

- Laura T

We use 3 OptiMizers for our herd of 8 horses. We fill them about once a day, even on the worst days, and have found ourselves going through a lot less hay. I'm confident our OptiMizers will pay for themselves in the amount of money we've saved in otherwise ruined hay.

I've always had slow feed bags. I needed five or six a day to feed three horses. Last winter with the OptiMizer I could slow feed two bales in one place. This saved me a ton of time not hvaing to refill bags everday, plus I noticed it was way cleaner in the spring.
