    In the past year at my small barn, we’ve had two horses on stall rest. Our guys are used to being out 24/7, so it was tough on them. I fed my horse from a net but the other owner chose not to, and her horse colicked after three weeks. I think it was because he was eating his hay too fast. Having a hay pillow for him after he was turned out in a small paddock would been so much better.

    I love your newsletter!

    Hi! I would LOVE the Version II Standard Hay Pillow and Net Panel because I’m putting all efforts forth to try and make the changes necessary to give my horses the life they deserve — natural barefoot trimming, natural nutrition, and a natural lifestyle.

    Hanging Hay Pillow; Traditional Small Mesh Hay Net Alternative 1″

  4. Jan Grippo says:

    Would love to try this for my little brood. I supplement hay in the winter. This would be the bee’s knees!! I like the 1″standard hay pillow

  5. Natalie says:

    We would like to try the 1 inch standard hay pillows. This is one of the few slow feeders we have not tired and since I would like to add one more ‘hay station’ in our pasture to be sure even the lowest in the pecking order gets to munch at will, this would be a perfect time to try it out! Our sweet mare, Trixie Lou, who is always being chased off the hay by someone would say “Thank you!!!”

  6. Heather says:

    We recently adopted 2 rescue mini horses, very small ones too. The small-mesh hay nets that I use for my standard horses are too big for these minis; I worry about them getting tangled. They are currently being fed on the ground on a mat but I would love to slow them down and trickle feed them through the day. It was nice to learn on your site that you specifically have a solution for mini horses. Thank you!

  7. Mary Jo says:

    I am 60 years old and just got my first horse! She is a rescue and had a terrible previous life. I want her to trust humans again and to give her the best new life I can. She has saved me from a long, rough patch and made me want to live again, and I want to do the same for her!! I would love the Version II Standard Hay Pillow and net panel! Thank you for this opportunity!!

  8. Brenda says:

    I would love to win and try a standard hay pillow. I adopted a horse who was starved and I need to slow down his eating. I love the idea of the pillow being on the ground – like natural grazing.

  9. Dawn Onesty says:

    My name is Dawn and I am 71. MY horse Tedd is a therapy animal and has been so named by my doctor. He saves my life everyday and in every way!!! The Standard Hay Pillow with the 1 1/4″ mesh is perfect for a guy like mine who needs to slow his eating down in the Fall and Spring. The grazing muzzle rubs a bit, but the hay pillow will definitely solve that problem!

  10. I would love to win a standard hay pillow for my newly diagnosed 21 year old IR mare….:-(

  11. Chetara .S says:

    We have 2 horses who are hard to keep weight on. We tried slow feeding nets. Which our horses proceed proceeded to chew it into shreds. And do not last long. I like the standard hay pillow. Think it would last longer. And keep them from inhaling their hay and dragging most of it through the dirt.

  12. Nancy says:

    So many choices! But I think the west coast and small bale cinch works best for my situation.

  13. Nora Suppers says:

    My two rescue minis are healthy, happy and voracious hay eaters so I worry about them getting overweight, but want to keep them out of their stall and not withhold hay from them….. so the mini pillow hay feeder would be a great tool in our natural horse care. thank you

  14. Deby Estel says:

    I would love to try the ground hay pillow with the 1 3/4 inch holes for my easy keeper. I free feed already and my horses have 4 acres to move around constantly, but my boy Duke has a hay belly all the time. He is a rescue from a ranch in MT and they were going to put him down. We have been fortunate to correct all his bad behaviors and give him a happy home here in the CA desert.

  15. Holly says:

    I am currently treating my mate for ulcers and would love to win a standard hay pillow for her!

  16. Diane Medley says:

    Would love to have a standard ground pillow with 1 3/4″ mesh. We have a therapeutic riding center and feed the eight horses free choice timothy to keep them happy. However, one mare is quite intent on eating as much as possible and we really need to slow her down to control her weight. We think the larger mesh would be good to keep her from being frustrated.

  17. Vicki L Ciepiela says:

    Having a hay pillow for my mare would be great! I really like the small 1&3/4 inch one because the holes would be small enough to slow her down. She puts her head in her feeder that I have now and never lifts it out until every morsel is gone. She is a little piglet. 🙂

  18. Jaye Laughlin says:

    Standard size ground, 1 1/4″ holes

  19. Jane Murdock says:

    My name is Jane and I am currently feeding my Cushing’s horse with a hanging style of hay net which is very hard to fill. I would love to try the pillow style 1 1/4 inch squares to see if she likes eating off the ground better.

  20. Marcia says:

    I would love to win the Hanging Hay Pillow. I like to keep things as natural as possible. My mare has been barefoot now for over a year and doing great. What a difference it made to her! Keeping my girl happy and comfortable is the most important thing to me. She was recently diagnosed with a mass as the base of her heart that is, hopefully, slow growing but not treatable. I’ve been giving her some Timothy hay and would like to have an additional slow feed bag so she can enjoy it throughout the day. Thank you for the generous chance to win!

  21. Karen Leber says:

    I rescued a horse from a halter barn. He stood in his 14ft x 14 ft stall for 22out of 24 hours of the day. Now he gets to experience being outside and being able to move his feet. A Hay Pillow would give him the freedom of choice. He could pick up the pillow and move it.

    He has had very little say so in his life until now, and I am certain it would contribute to his well being. Whatever size netting is the standard size for slow grazing is the one he would do well on I think.

    Thank you for your knowledge, your kindness, and your unwaivering commitment to making a difference in the lives of these beautiful sentient beings.

  22. I would love to try a standard bag in 1″ because I love trying out all types of slow feeders, and I haven’t got this one in the budget yet!

  23. Terri Lampman says:

    I bought 2 standard bags several months ago and realized how awesome they are are and I really need a third standard 1 3/4 inch bag, I load his daily hay in bags so the barn owner can just plop them out to him at feeding time. There is no better way to feed and you can’t have just one. My guy loves the bag and even runs around the pasture showing it off to the neighboring horses, “Look what I got!”

  24. Audrey McKenzie says:

    The Trailer Manger Hay Pillow would be perfect for my mare in her slant load trailer

  25. Gen says:

    Would love try to have the Standard Hay Pillow. My horse throws his hay on the ground anyway and flings it all over to waste…. I am pretty sure the Hay Pillow would help!!

  26. I would appreciate trying a ground feeder with 1″ or so mesh. I have a lean 3yo gelding that has a voracious appetite. He can eat 10# of Timothy in about an hour and a half, no net. I think I have tried just about every slow feeder out there. Plastic netting he chews through after he finishes just to suck out every morsel. Small hole fish netting types work better, he eats in about double the amount of time but recently he uses his front feet to jerk it down, endangering his safety. Bent a carabiner in two doing this. If I put the bag on the ground, at some it makes it to the water trough. That’s a nice mess. Porta Grazer works except the banging noise it makes as he moves it from place to place and he ends up cutting and scraping up his face. Sooo….. Next! Tattoo says bring it on!

  27. Kathy says:

    Correction – I need the standard size slow feeder for my Hoover!

  28. Tracy Arnn says:

    A standard hay pillow with 1/2″ mesh would be a great introduction for my feed program for my small herd. I have always wanted to try these.

  29. Marie says:

    I would love to win a standard hay pillow with 1 1/2″ mesh for my rescue filly

  30. Amanda Buchanan says:

    I LOVE these pillows!! Trying to buy a few at a time to get the whole herd on them before winter. My gelding foundered and this has really helped regulate the amount of hay and kept him busy. No stress at all which is important in an IR horse. Thanks for making this wonderful product allowing them to graze naturally!!

  31. Stacey HARKCOM says:

    Would love to try one of these. I would like the standard!!

  32. M coburn says:

    Standard bag, 1.75″ holes!

  33. Tracy Neale says:

    I’d love to win your standard slow f for my easy keeper 20yr old. He just has to have hay in friont of him or he gets very anxious. But being that he has navicular and easily puts on weight I have to throw him small amounts of hay several times a day. I’m not always home to do this and I come home to him pacing the fence and making himself sore. If I had your standard slow feeder with 1 3/4″ holes I would not have to worry about anxiety or him becoming over weight.

  34. Patty says:

    1 1/4 hanging works best around here. Keeps my guys all happy.

  35. Lisa says:

    This works awesome for my mini! I would like one for my big horse. The standard hay pillow slow feeder bag with the 1 3/4″ net.

  36. Karin says:

    Aloha, I’d like to try the Hanging-Hay-Pillow, 1 1/4″ mesh. Mahalo

  37. joseph citron says:

    The 1″ size would be great for my 4 month old colt. He is learning to graze and supplement his diet with forage. Using the hay pillow would allow me to quantitate his intake.

  38. Jesika says:

    Hello! My horse has navicular and my (amazing!) holistic barefoot trimmer recommends he be moved to slow feeding. I’m leaning not only does slow feeding benefit hoof health but it also provides an array of other health benefits. I’d love to have the Standard Hay Pillow® Slow Feeder Hay Bag (1 3/4″) be part of our journey to a healthier and happier horse!

  39. Keri Paninos says:

    Would love to try another standard hay pillow with 1 and 1/4 mesh size. We ordered used and really liked this same choice 3 years ago. The zipper broke and we have not been able to afford another quite yet.

  40. Beverly Hubbard says:

    I’d try the Standard hay pillow.

  41. Danielle Clark says:

    I am entering the drawing for the standard or mini hay pillow. I do not have a horse of my own but volunteer at a therapeutic riding center. I plan on donating the pillow to them.

  42. Mary says:

    Would love the hanging hay bag with 1″ mesh. Would be great for my older mare

  43. shera felde says:

    I would love to try the standard pillow in 1″ because I have spent the past two months putting up fencing, soaking hay, trying medicine and supplements, etc. For my sweet mare with laminitis. I have to find a long term solution for both of us and I am still searching for the right combination of tools. She is only 6 and the light of my life..

  44. Jane Meggitt says:

    I would like to win the Hay Pillow Hanging Version II. This would help my older (18) foundered gelding take his time rather than scarfing down his hay.

  45. Penny Jeffrey says:

    The standard hay pillow with 1/2″ mesh would work well for my hefty haflingers! Please pick them as winners!

  46. Sherry Liberty says:

    I have a slow feeder bale net, they have figured out they can shake the hay out on the ground to eat it faster. I would like to try the 3/4″ standard pillow, hoping the solid back might slow them down further. Thank you

  47. I would love to win a standard 1″. My mare uses hanging nets and I prefer not to put them on the ground because of loose dirt in the summer and mud in the winter. I have written about the benefits of slow feeders and would definitely blog about the hay pillow if it works well!

  48. Heather says:

    Does Hay Pillow happen to have a discount code affiliated with this giveaway? 😉

  49. Richard D Sweebe says:

    I would like to win a standard pillow in 1″ to benefit Lakota, and to demonstrate to others the wonders of this standard hay pillow.
