This neutral tan goes with any color scheme and is especially great at hiding stains from lighter soils, sand and manure. Made with high tech, medical grade polyethylene, this feeder will stand up to the harshest conditions for years of use.
Replacement grates are available if you would need a different size grate opening, or if it gets worn after a year, or two, or more (our horses are using 3–5-year-old grates).
Grate opening sizes are based on your hay type, and not on how much you want to slow down consumption, as with a net. Soaked hay typically requires a larger grate size.
If you are questioning which size grate to order, error on the side of caution with a larger size. It is easier for your horse to make the transition with a larger grate and then move down to a smaller grate size, than to have your horse start out frustrated that he can't access the hay due to a smaller grate size.
We offer free grate exchange within the first 30 days of your order, if the grate that you ordered is not working. Just order your grate online and we will reimburse you when the original grate is shipped back to us.

Small: 2.25" x 5" size openings for super fine grass hay such as Coastal Bermuda, Teff, early brome, chopped and bagged forage, very fine alfalfa and fine hay that is conditioned.
Medium: Our original grate size with 2.75" x 6" size openings for most cool-season grass hays such as Timothy and Orchard and some finer grass alfalfa mix hay - not for thick, stemmy or coarse hay.
Large: 3.25" x 6" size openings for alfalfa and alfalfa mixes. (Due to the leaves on the alfalfa, these types of hay can compact very easily and a large grate is recommended; especially when starting a horse on the Savvy Feeder). Also use a large grate for other stemmy hay such as peanut, and long-stranded hay from a large round bale. The large grate is beneficial for older horses who have difficulty grasping hay.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
The grate floats on top of the hay and goes down as the horse eats. The grate is held in place by heavy-duty fabric. This unique process has granted us a patent through the US Patent and Trade Office.
HOW MUCH DOES IT HOLD?
Approximately 18-22 pounds of hay.
Your horse doesn't need that much per feeding? No worries - just put in the amount of hay that your horse needs. It works just as well with 5 lbs of hay.
Your horse will enjoy their forage 4 to 10 times longer than if thrown on the ground/floor.
