The high-tech poly hay feeder for horses that's safe for the stall, paddock, dry lot, trailer, hitching post

                                                             Step 3

  • Slide the bottom plate closed
  • Ensure that hay is not blocking the bottom plate from sliding into  the closed position
  • ‚ÄčEnsure the feeder is securely shut so your horse does not slide the bottom plate out and hurt himself or damage the feeder.

                                                            Step 4

  • Turn the Savvy FeederTM  right side up
  • Pull hay up through the grate openings to teach your horse how to properly access the hay up and out of the feeder.
  • During the first week of use:
    • place free choice hay next to and/or on top of the feeder to calmly acclimate your horse to restricted foraging.
    • Continue to pull hay up through the grate openings until your horse learns how to do this on his own.

This seems like a given, however, some horses can become impatient and frustrated, then refuse to eat from the feeder, or will push down on the grate and not be able to pull hay up through the grate opening.


Do not place the Savvy Feeder in an area with more than 2 horses per feeder, as they may fight over the hay & feeder. This may lead to possible injury.

Ensure hay in the feeder is not constricted, is free of debris, mold, & thistle. This may avoid frustration, pawing the feeder, refusing to forage, and possible injury.

Check screws & acorn nuts on a monthly basis to ensure that they remain tight. If loose, tighten grate screws with a screwdriver. Tighten feeder box acorn nuts with a 3/8" wrench and opposing screw with a screwdriver.
