Choosing the right one
Eazigrazer is available with 3 different sizes of hay regulator. We recommend that in most cases you start with a 90mm hay regulator, with the exception of small ponies, and large horses. The 90mm version is suitable for most types of hay, and most horses. It is important that when introducing Eazigrazer you are not tempted to over restrict your horse because it is possible this will lead to frustration and unsuccessful use of the grazing system.
If your horse has been using Eazigrazer in a consistently relaxed manner for some time, and you would like to slow grazing further, then you can try a smaller regulator. We do however recommend that you keep a close watch, and return to the larger version if your horse gets frustrated or struggles to remove the hay.
If you have the appropriate hole size for your horse, and he/she seems to be struggling to remove the hay, then it is possible that your hay is too coarse for that particular size and you should try the next size up (taking into account hoof size – see below). Also note that soaked hay is always more difficult to remove.
Don’t forget, Eazigrazer can be used with all three sizes of interchangeable hay regulator (available individually in our online shop), so no need to buy a complete Eazigrazer should your needs change!
- 70mm holes: For feeding hay to small ponies. Possibly larger ponies who are fully accustomed to and easily using the 90mm holes.
- 90mm holes: Our standard size and starter hay regulator for all but very small and very large equines.
- 100mm holes: For large horses, and possibly when feeding coarse hay.
Please Note: Your horse’s hooves must be a minimum of 3cm larger in diameter than hay regulator holes to prevent possible entrapment and injury.
