Slow Hay Feeders

Wishing Well Ltd. is committed to developing products and services to optimize the fundamental care of horses. We know that providing a forage-first diet for horses in a natural, slow-feeding manner is a fundamental cornerstone of care and have spent hundreds of hours observing our herd to learn what makes them content.

We’ve incorporated this learning and experience into designing durable, safe hay feeders.

Stop Waste

Horses are picky eaters and can waste a lot when they’re trying to find their favourite parts in a flake of hay. When it’s left loose, hay gets stomped on, soiled, mixed in with mud/sand/bedding, or simply blows away.

Slow Feed

A horse is content when they always have clean forage available. They need to trickle feed throughout the day and night, chewing about 30,000 times in 24 hours to create saliva that buffers the acid in their stomach. If they gorge their hay ration, they’ll spend hours without forage and chewing. This can make them more anxious and increase the risk of gastric ulcers.

Save Time

When your horses go through their hay quickly and make a mess eating it, that leads to more work for you. Extra hay needs to be supplemented to make sure they have the forage they need, and extra time is needed to clean up the messy, dirty, wasted hay.

What Our Customers 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.

The health of my horse has improved, which has made me so happy laughing!!!

- Kaitlyn M

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

Absolute game changer for my very messy Clydesdale. Zero waste, quick filling, and best of all slow feeding all night long.

- Taylor S

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.
