Slow Feeding Horses

Slow Feeding Horses – Hay Pillow Inc. offers an array of innovative slow feed creations plus a variety of products to enrich and enhance the life of your herd.​


The Hay Pillow® product line includes the popular Standard and Mini Hay Pillows which are heads down the best slow feed choice. The only slow feed hay bags designed for use on the ground with a solid back; allowing your horse to eat in a natural grazing position and encourage movement!

Why is feeding my horse from ground level best?

  • Less strain on the skeletal system

  • Optimum mastication
  • Nasal passages drain effectively
  • Relaxed emotional state
  • Eliminates particles falling into eyes
  • Does not impair peripheral vision


The slow feeder hay bags:

  • Are easy to fill 

  • Eliminate waste
  • Slow down the rate of consumption
  • Minimize ingestion of sand

  • Are portable to encourage your horse to move more and great for travel

  • Allowsyour horse's digestive system to work as nature intended

The Hay Pillows® ensure that your horse has a continuous supply of hay available to them without over-eating. By having to work for each strand of hay your horse will be able to regulate his eating and will chew thoroughly so that the hay will be properly digested. This mimics the way horses eat in the wild - a slow, continuous amount of food over a 24 hour period.

The custom nylon (DuPont®) knotted netting is available in five mesh sizes: ½”, ¾”, 1”, 1 ¼” and  1 ¾ ”. The 1 ¼” and 1 ¾” are the most popular mesh sizes. Going too small, too quickly can frustrate your horse.

The Hanging Hay Pillow® is a great choice if you need to hang a bag. It is designed to be hung as low as possible with the netting area at the bottom to encourage a head down eating position. Great for the horse trailer too!
