Giveaway from The Hay Pillow!

My long-time sponsor, Monique Warren with The Hay Pillow, Inc., has graciously offered to do more giveaways this year. This is the first one, but the good news is that if you don’t win, there will be several more chances!

The giveaway is for one standard Hay Pillow® or one Hanging Hay Pillow®–your choice–each a $69.99 value.

The Standard® and Mini Hay Pillow® Original and Version II are the only slow feed hay bags designed for use on the ground; allowing your horse to eat in a natural grazing position and encourage movement! The best choice for voracious eaters; when used on the ground it is not attached to anything so they can’t tug or pull on it. Mini Hay Pillow is designed specifically for miniature horses and ponies.

Hanging Hay Pillow ® and Hanging Hay Pillow II ® are also available for those who prefer to hang a bag. It is appropriate for any size horse or pony. Great for horse trailers and stalls!

To enter the giveaway, just leave a comment below telling why you’d like to have a Hay Pillow® for your horse.  The deadline to enter is this Friday, February 10th.  A random drawing from the comments will determine the winner.

***Contest is open U.S. residents only.

(And please, only 1 comment per person.)

Good luck!

    I would love the hay pillow to make my mothers gelding eat slower and to keep my mare from wasting ad much hay.

  2. Candice says:

    My boy and I will begin our eventing career this Spring and we could really use a hay pillow for our travels!

  3. Lisa Hiley says:

    I’ve been trying to persuade my fellow barn-mates (the owner and one other boarder) that these would make a lot of sense for winter feeding but we’re not sure they are sturdy enough. We’d love to test one – and it could be good for your sales!

  4. Jan Grippo says:

    What a wonderful opportunity to try one of the Hay Pillows for my horses. I’ve had my eye on them for some time now.

  5. Beth Baily says:

    I feed my horses on the ground and would love to try this out to see if it’s a good investment!! Thank you.

  6. Dorothy says:

    Hi, I’m currently using a poly net and it constantly gets hung up on the hook it hangs from Plus he grabs it and rips the holes larger to get his nose into. I’m always afraid he’ll get his neck caught in the net and choke. Your nets won’t allow any of these complaints I have to worry about.

  7. Nancy H says:

    This seems like a great and lofical way to not waste hay. My guys (horses) sure could use one…or more!

  8. stephanie says:

    I would really enjoy the hay pillow as my little pony is older and she needs to eat slower and lose some weight, i have tried a hangin hay net but i feel it is too unnatural and she doesnt like it as much as eating off the ground,

  9. Celia Wetherill says:

    I have a horse that I am having to severely restrict his diet. He gets no grain and I’m having to soak his hay and limit the amount he gets. The hay pillow would be great since it would slow down his consumption and not have as much waste. He has to be in a dry lot during the summer.

  10. Jan says:

    Thank you for the opportunity to win a Hay Pillow! I would love to let CoCo try one. She has terrible grass and insect allergies, so I would love to try something that will keep her face out of the grass/weeds. Thanks again!

  11. Michele Heinig says:

    I’m always looking for ways to improve my babies quality of care and using a pillow net would definitely help that goal!!

  12. Marie Sanbirn says:

    I would love to win a hay pillow for my antsy OTTB

  13. Cathy D. says:

    Oh My Gosh!!! I so want a hanging hay pillow. Well really I would like 5 but would happily settle for winning one. I would love to have it as I have the fattest rescue pony ever – Julian. He would greatly benefit from a hanging one for his stall to hopefully slow down his immense appetite and fast eating style. Which in turn just might prolong his meal time joy and perhaps slim his waistline.

  14. Diane Medley says:

    We operate a therapeutic riding center for those with special needs and are trying to feed hay 24/7 to keep our hard working horses as happy as possible. Several horses — along with our very tiny budget — could greatly benefit with a little slower eating so we would love to give the hay pillow a try!

  15. James Hudkins says:

    Currently I feed on top of the snow which works well at present for horses and the Wild Turkeys. The pillow looks like the cats meow so the horses get all there hay.

  16. Caroline says:

    I just want what’s best for my Sophie

  17. Ann Rapoza says:

    I would love to try the hanging hay pillow for my mare, hopefully making her ration of hay last longer.

  18. Lori Suarez says:

    I would love a mini size hay pillow for my mini guy, he eats way too fast & gets board easily. I have a bigger one, but its too big for him.

  19. Deborah Roth says:

    I have 2 Arabians. My gelding eats so fast and have tried nibble nets which they ate through and now another feed bag but rope is tough and not good for their teeth. My other Arabian is a slow eater. I now need to separate them some the gelding eats through his so quickly. Hep

  20. Natalie Washburn says:

    I would like to try the hay pillow. We have slow feeder nets, but when we ‘feed’ them on the ground the hay can get damp/dirty. I’m thinking the hay pillow would keep that from happening since it has a back to it.

  21. Susan D Deakin says:

    Slowing down the hay eating is not only economical for the humans, it’s more healthy for the horses to nibble that hay for hours more than just bolting it down when loose.

  22. Joy de Pominville says:

    It would be fantastic for some of the horses at the rescue at which I voulnteer, especially those with feeding issues. Thanks!! Joy

  23. Karissa says:

    All my horses eat from slow feed bags and we would like to try the hay pillow.

  24. Dawn Onesty says:

    I love the Hay Pillow! It is the best for allowing the horse to eat from the ground and to withstand their use without breaking. It is perfect for allowing slow feeding while not allowing for damaging their front teeth!
    Great Product!!!!

  25. Rebecca Pickett says:

    My fat little mustang really needs a hay pillow to slow down and eat less!

  26. Lena says:

    I would love to have a Hay Pillow for my VERY easy keeper. The Hay Pillow will be perfect for him!!
    Thanks!

  27. Sharon Darrow says:

    I have a metabolic/insulin resistant horse. I use slow feeders for his hay currently, but they are affixed to a wall so he can’t move around much. I think the Hay Pillow option, would allow him to push it around some and get a bit more exercise, which would be really beneficial for his circulation. Looks like a wonderful product…I hope I win one!!

  28. Vicki L Ciepiela says:

    I have a mare that eats WAY to fast and always wants more. I would love to have a Hay Pillow so she will graze like a “normal” horse 🙂

  29. Shelley Becker says:

    Our sweet little mini “Yoshi” has to spend way too much time in his dry lot due to laminitis…..he would LOVE the Hay Pillow!!!

  30. I would love a hay pillow because my horse is fluffy and easily bored! I also prefer her to be eating with her head down because she has allergies to dust. This product looks great.

  31. NikiGA says:

    I would love to try one of these! We have four horses and can’t afford to buy these without trying first!

  32. Debora Lay says:

    I run a non-profit equine therapy and rehabilitation center for rescue and homeless horses. Most have IR or PPID and slow feeding is an essential part of therapy. We have a very tight budget and are careful to avoid wasted hay. This product would help our horses and our budget both. Thank you for your consideration.

  33. mary says:

    I’d love to win a Hay Pillow! Both of my horses are easy keepers and using small opening hay nets has made it so easy to keep them ‘easy keepers’!

  34. Nicole says:

    I have a chronic cribber, if a hay pillow could reduce his stressors by munching longer it would be of great help. I have heard the Hay Pillow can be helpful as such.
    Would love the opportunity! And Thank you for all your educational articles, they are very helpful!

  35. Ginny Paschke says:

    Hay Pillow may be just right for my Insulin-Resistant (IR) horse, who must eat alone while his buddies graze in the pasture. Life isn’t fair.

  36. Tim Hoy says:

    Because it is so funny watching my horses run and buck when the Hay Pillow gets stuck on a steel shoe. Just kidding, they’re happily barefoot with a variety of slow feeders, but prefer feeding on the ground any time the weather permits.

  37. Elizabeth Bousquet says:

    This would be a blessing to have for the 501 non profit therapeutic horseback riding facility I volunteer at. They have over 25 horses of all ages and different needs. These special horses provide a safe haven for many children and adults with special needs. #Locust lane therapeutic riding center in PA. 🙂

  38. I would be thrilled to have such a product. With all of the horses and ponies that I have I know that it would come to good use.

  39. Kathy says:

    I would love to try the hay pillow for trailering as we do a decent amount of that and I’d like to see if more ends up inside the horse rather than on the trailer floor. If it works, then I would get one for each spot in the trailer.

  40. Jackie says:

    Jazzy loves to eat and is so sad when she has eaten all of her hay. She would love a hay pillow so that she will take longer to eat making her think that she is getting more to eat. It would also keep her entertained.

  41. Marcia says:

    Thank you for the chance to win a Hay Pillow. I’d love one for my girl because it’s the healthy way to feed!

  42. Keri says:

    Would love a new one! I bought one for my mare who can’t be on grass at all through the summer and the hay pillow worked great in allowing her to eat slower and allowing the hay last longer.

  43. Allison says:

    Perfect gift for a nine year retired racehorse who deserves lots of love ❤️.

  44. Lynn stillman says:

    I would love one of these for my horse! Here in Arizona we have no access to pasture for grazing and this be a great asset to keep my horse healthy and happy between feedings

  45. Bronson says:

    We are told by an equine massage therapist that our horse might benefit from a hay pillow. His neck muscles are tight from pulling the hay from his net, an unnatural position for eating. He would thank you himself if he could!

  46. Ann Rusk says:

    You can NEVER have too many slow feeders!

  47. Laurinda says:

    My mare has alot of trouble with seasonal diarrhea. I think a hay pillow might really help her to better chew and digest her hay throughout the day.

  48. Jill says:

    I would love to use this for our Arabian!

  49. Summer says:

    I would love a hay pillow for especially when I travel to give my mare (who is not normally stalled) something healthy to occupy her time.

  50. Sandy Carr says:

    Oh my! So many reasons….but particularly because I have an OTTB who needs to keep his tummy full to keep ulcers at bay. Not allowing the stomach to empty keeps the stomach acids from harming him and he is a happy young man! Thanks so much for the opportunity to win a Hay Pillow!

  51. Cindy Jewett says:

    I would love to try a hanging hay pillow for my 27 year old TWH gelding.

  52. Laura says:

    I’d love a happy pillow to stop another boarder from continually feeding my two horses in the wet Washington mud!

  53. I’m obsessed with trying different types of slow feeders, but somehow I’ve never tried one that lays on the ground. I would love to add it to my collection!

  54. Sheila says:

    I would love a hay pillow for my little PPID pony who lives alone in a dry lot since he can’t have any grass. 🙁

  55. I would really like to have a Hay Pillow to feed hay to my mares who eat quickly! It would keep them busy longer. Thanks for doing this!

  56. Eden Dilley says:

    Oh my goodness! I would love this for my mare!! I would be greatly appreciated!!

  57. Linda says:

    We have a variety of slow net feeders and love the looks of these! Durability is also a concern and it looks like you have addressed that too.

  58. Pamela Stubbs says:

    Minis! Can’t feed them enough to suit them, can’t feed them too much at all or they colic, founder, get cresty or all of the above! The hay pillow would aid in resolving those issues by keeping them “grazing”, keeping them busy, and keeping them satisfied that they aren’t going to starve to death! 🙂 Love the concept!

  59. Jaynn Kushner says:

    My ponies (and I) LOVE their hay pillows, but we surely do need another due to the necessity of pulling them out to launder because of the muddy days we’re having.

  60. Maxine says:

    I’d love to win one! My horse has one and he prefers it to just eating a flake of hay of the ground (its helped him lose weight which was the aim – he was very overweight). Soon he will have 1 or more pasture mates where I board – which means to keep my guy happy I will have to purchase more for other peoples horses or take his away or there will be conflict over the 1 hay pillow. It works so much better than the slow feed haynets we tried first – he could empty a hay net in 30 mins. His Hay Pillow lasts between 5 & 8hr before he empties it.

  61. Terry boswell says:

    We lost some trees which was a windbreak for a large pasture. We lose so much hay now

  62. Barbara Krogmann says:

    Hay Pillows are amazing!!! I really would love one for our new Mustang coming to the ranch soon!!

  63. Debbie Tuller says:

    I would be thrilled to have the Hay Pillow because I cannot afford to waste one stem of hay between my 2 horses (who are slobs!) and I know this would make a tremendous difference

  64. Martina Borg says:

    A slow feed hay pillow would be perfect for my horse Max.. who tends to gobble, gobble, gobble as fast as he can! This will slow him down and keep him happily eating hay for longer! Awesome looking product!

  65. Cindi O says:

    I like to have hay 24/7 for my horses. But without a haynet it is gone before you know it. This would help slow them down on eating and make less waste!

  66. Phyllis S says:

    This would be great for at the shows. I hate when it is time to leave and there is half a bale of hay on the ground wasted!

  67. Misty says:

    This would be great to slow down my Piggy!

  68. Gloria Bruce says:

    It is COLD in Vermont and the winter wind is blowing the hay right out of the pasture! A Hay Pillow would certainly fix that!

  69. Elvia Gignoux says:

    I would love to win a hay pillow for my Fjords.

  70. Jennell says:

    I just bought my first piece of land and get to move my horse to it! I plan to make a track system and this pillow would be a perfect addition.

  71. Sherry says:

    My Appy could use one to help keep him slim and trim.

  72. Mary Malloy says:

    A Hay Pillow would help ME sleep easier, lol, knowing that my sponsored horse wasn’t horking down his hay in triple-time. Seriously, although I know it’s impossible, I half-expect him to belch lustily after he’s gobbled his flake of hay in the morning. 🙂

  73. Deby Estel says:

    I would love, love, love to win a hay pillow. I was just looking at them online as we just acquired 2 minis from a kill pen in TX and my nets currently have too big of holes for them. It would just be really exciting for me to try the hay pillow for these 2 little minis. The mama was starved in the kill pen and is making a good come back. Her little colt, he is a pistol, is doing really well I am happy to say. He got out of the large paddock, it is 300 feet by 100 feet, yesterday and was running with the big guys. He is in love with our mare paint rescue even though he stand 2 feet high. He is such a little boy. It was touch and go for the mama for a while. Thank you this giveaway.
