Horses don't think about breakfast, lunch and dinner. They simply think about the food.
The trick is to make sure it’s around when they think about it, and that can be a full-time and expensive proposition. Feeding a horse on your schedule endangers its life by opening the door for colic. Hay Wise feeders address that danger by holding enough hay to keep a horse feeding throughout the day at a safe and clean pace without breaking the bank.
Do you know the causes of colic?
- Under eating
- Over watering
- Under watering
A horse’s nutritional system is supposed to be working all the time, not on a human schedule.

About the feeder.
HAY WISE FEEDERS are 100% virgin plastic and made in the USA
Virgin Plastic vs. Recycled Plastic
My goal was to make sure that Hay Wise Feeders were green and sustainable. Over the course of 3 years, we studied every aspect of production using both virgin and recycled plastics. Here’s what we learned:
First (and thankfully) the FDA’s requirement for food grade recycled materials are quite stringent
- Protocols for removing all contaminants from the plastic’s original use are expensive
- Recycled plastics have strength, durability and structural problems, particularly for items such as a paddock or stall feeder
Strength Issues With Recycled Plastics
Crushing of stacked or nested products
Dye runs/color fading in areas of higher concentration of recycled resin
- Inconsistent shatter tests
- Poor resistance to heat and freezing temperatures
- Leaching of contaminants from the plastic’s previous life
My Own Non-Scientific Test
2 water buckets in every stall
Buckets were made from
- Recycled plastic in a medium color
- Virgin plastic in white
- Fortex plastic bucket in various colors
- Rubber feed tub
- Combinations were rotated, but the recycled bucket remained constant
- The non-recycled bucket won every time, except when it was paired with the rubber tub
