High Country Plastics Slow Feeder Saver Jr.

The High Country Plastics Slow Feeder Saver Jr. is designed to provide horses with the most natural eating experience possible, regardless of whether they're in a stall or in a stable.

The small nylon-webbed grate holes prevent feed from being wasted and slows down feeding, which improves digestion and overall equine health. Its smooth, rounded corners ensure enhanced animal safety, and the one-piece design requires no assembly.

Features:

  • Places horse in natural grazing position
  • Slows down feeding which helps to improve digestion and overall health of your horse
  • Small nylon-webbed grate holes prevent feed from being wasted

We need a slow feeder in which the horse is able to eat with his head lowered. We selected the Junior size so it will fit in a stall.
Shelly B on Jun 28, 2019
we have the bigger ones they work very well. we decided to go with smaller ones since we could not find the bigger ones right now and need some right now to put in arena to feed in case of more bad weather.

Trying to save time and money on hay and stall clean up. We will see.
Tarry C on Feb 12, 2019
Have one that is just what I needed for one run-in shed and got another for a different run-in shed.
Pamela R on Jan 19, 2019
I already have 2 larger ones for the paddocks and one of these Junior sizes for a stall. Perfect! Saves hay waste and a time saver. Slowly accumulating more for the other stalls. Highly recommend!
Brandi A on Jan 14, 2019
Vet recommended as slow feeder to help reduce the risk of ulcer and hay waste
Julia S on Jan 14, 2019
I have 2 of these feeders already and they are awesome, The horses used to waste a lot of hay that ended up on the ground and they wouldn't eat it, that no longer happens. The money I save in wasted hay over time pays for these feeders.
Joseph B on Jan 9, 2019
never tried one before, have an old horse and want to help her through the winter between feedings
Calvin R on Nov 12, 2018
THIS WORKS GREAT. LIVE IN NORTH DAKOTA WHERE IT IS COLD. WE HAVE 3 OF THESE!!!
KENETH M on Nov 7, 2018
I love these feeders, in addition to slowing down eating, they also save hay!
Deborah L on Nov 6, 2018
Was sad to see the increase in cost but still had to purchase. I believe they save shavings and hay, along with slow feeding hay to my horses. Over-all this is the fifth one I have purchased.
Karen K on Nov 5, 2018
After doing a web wide search this slow feeder Jr. looks like the best product for the best price for keeping my horses hay off the ground but still keeping him eating in a natural grazing position.
Michele Z on Oct 29, 2018
Easy to use, great way to slow down hay consumption. The small size is good for stalls, and easier to fill than hay nets or bags.
Jennifer G on Apr 17, 2018
Because it looks durable enough to withstand a horse pounding on it; it should be heavy enough that horse won't tip it over; it holds enough hay for 1/2 a day which is good; and it looks easy to fill.
I have been grappling with getting his hay out of the sand, and reducing the waste of hay because he has trampled it for months. All of my homemade solutions have not worked ..now going to spend the $$$. Hope this works.
Julie B on Apr 8, 2018
I need to use a slow feeder for my horse.
Deborah G on Apr 6, 2018
Love this smaller size slow feeder - great size for one horse, easy to pull inside when the weather is bad and easy to take on the road in the trailer!
Ann S on Mar 25, 2018
My horse eats very quickly, especially when other horses are nearby. When horse camping, I can't seem to fill his hay net often enough. I'm hoping this will solve the problem as I can put more hay in this and, in getting him to eat slower, he can have food throughout the day/night as he is highlined.
Ranae S on Mar 10, 2018
Others that I know have used this particular Slow Feeder & have had very good results!

I need a way to keep hay from being wasted
BARBARA A on Mar 3, 2018
our senior rescues need chopped forage. we already have one and it cuts down on the waste immensely! We choose the Jr because it has nylon mesh instead of the metal grate which is not kind to their teeth :/
Juliann C on Jan 25, 2018
Was given the Jr size for a gift. Love it! Saves hay and the horse uses it as a toy. Loves rattling it.
Susan B on Jan 17, 2018
Was looking for an option to put in stalls
Ronia K on Jan 15, 2018
Bought one to try it and it works well. Keeps hay out of the mud on rainy days. Need to buy more because of dominate horses chasing off the other horses. Will work well to keep horses happy when confined in stall in bad weather.
Gayle S on Dec 22, 2017
Got one last year to see how it was and it was great so bought 2 more this year.
Laurie G on Nov 13, 2017
I use the standard size flow feeder during the long winter days to keep my horses busy, the Jr feeder will keep them busy in camp as well as keeping hay clean from poop and dirt while being high-lined or corralled

to reduce hay waste and slow down consumption
Jennifer G on Aug 22, 2017
Needed something that would keep the hay from being walked on and mixed with shavings. Also, keeps the hay dust in one place.
Diana M on Jun 18, 2017
I have two of the regular size and needed a third. The other two are quite big and thought a smaller size would be sufficient and easier to move.
kelley l on Jan 8, 2017
I only have one horse so I didn't need the bigger feeder. I am hoping it will keep the hay cleaned up and off the ground this winter so I don't have so much clean up in the spring. My horse is a fussy eater when it comes to her hay and wasted a lot. She is only out during the day and in the stall at night. I am also hoping it is not as hard to use as some people have indicated.
Joyce K on Oct 10, 2016
the item looks like it will be easy to work with
joseph d on Aug 1, 2016
Tired of wasting hay, and our horses need to eat slower as they are fed twice per day. I recently bought a used regular size High Country Feeder and really like it. Got it for $75, when they are $369 new, and this used one is virtually new. I wanted to try the Jr. size, and if I like it as well, will need 4 total.
Kate B on Jul 13, 2016
was hoping it would help with slow feed but it is aggravating, box is easily bent making grate impossible to get out, grate gets cock-eyed easily and horse pop out grate. Box came bent making grate impossible to get in, use farriers rasp to make grate go into hole. Waste of money. Not happy with product. Wouldn't recommend.

Frances H on Mar 6, 2019
What size are the hole openings?
Karen S on Jul 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: They are 2 1/2" X 5 1/4"
How long does it last when full?
A shopper on Feb 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Depends on how many horses are sharing. I put half a bale in first thing in the morning and then top it off at night and my two older horses have access to it 24/7 as we are limited to grass here in Florida.
Also have the full size slow feeder for my other 2 horses as they eat more since they are in a pasture with even less grass
Is this big enough for two horses?
A shopper on Jan 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Definitely not! Product is great and I moved the Jr. one into a horse's stall because he was making a mess spreading hay throughout stall. I have 2 regular size feeders outside and two horses can share in one of those. These feeders are expensive but worthwhile in the long run and State Line does offer them at best price.
Will this feeder work for chopped hay?
Mercia V on Feb 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Probably. They still have to work it through the holes, which I don’t think are huge. And the grate thing sits on the hay adding a little weight.
can you remove the slow feeder component and just have the box feeder for a stall setup?
A shopper on Dec 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes you can. I found that one of my horses were frustrated when trying to pull the hay thru the holes of the grade but I left it out and he eats relaxed. I love the feeders they are very durable and strong. To me it’s the best fit for us out here in Arizona to keep the hay off the ground my horses love them just trial and error with the grades in or out.
How do you put hay in it? Is it easy? I’m wearing myself out stuffing hay bags.
Beth E on Dec 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It is very easy! There is a slot at the top of the feeder. The grate easily slides on the slot. Put the hay in the feeder then slide the grate back through the slot. The grate kind of tilts down once the hay is in the feeder so it does not come out of the slot on its own. I've had this feeder for years. Very durable, looks like it did when I bought it. It has saved me so much money on wasted hay. It is the best feeder I have ever used and I highly recommend it. Well worth the cost. On a side note, the Jr. size is more than big enough. It is not really a "Junior" size.
DOES THE WEB FLOAT UP AND DOWN AS THE LEVEL OF HAY DECREASES? AND IS THEN REMOVABLE TO ADD ADDITIONAL HAY?
A shopper on Sep 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes it does. The web is attached to a steel tubing frame. As the hay is consumed the weight of the frame keeps the web in contact with the hay. Works pretty well. The frame/ webbing assembly is removed through a slot at the top of the feeder. The slot was a little tight on ours making it difficult to remove the frame/webbing. The slot can be opened up by sanding to alleviate this problem.
Can it free stand in stall or needs to be bolted to wall?
Sandi C on Mar 31, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The box is pretty sturdy and has a little weight but I ended up drilling two holes in the back and running a piece of hay string through the holes and tied a snap on the end so I could snap it to the wall so it would stay put. This way it is easy to disconnect for cleaning but stays in place. Works fine for my needs.
How many flakes does the Jr. hold?
Kendra W on Apr 26, 2019
BEST ANSWER: You can easily fit 3 flakes in the Jr. feeder. However, I do separate/fluff up the hay for ease of eating for the horse because they can not push it around to break up the flakes themselves. I bought the Jr. feeders for camping and use the full sized feeders in my stalls at home. At home, the feeders are handy and will keep your horse(s) busy on those long winter days and keep their digestive systems working good too. I highly recommend these feeders and I pressure wash them twice a year, spring and fall.
Has anyone used them outside? And if so do they collect water?
Ashley M on Dec 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I use mine strictly outside. They collect a little but there's a large slit on one side down low, and also a a small hole in the bottom for drainage. I've had the small hole get clogged plenty this year with all the mud, but as I regularly visit them to check/fill, emptying is no problem. I haven't had a problem with large water accumulations. I have 2 big girls on 2 feeders and they're hard on them, tossing them about, and they've held up great almost 2 years now!
how much hay does it hold?
A shopper on Feb 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The feeder holds a lot. More than enough hay for one horse. For one horse this size is more than adequate. I love this feeder! It is money well spent. I no longer have any wasted hay. I have the web grate. No teeth damage from the mental grates. The feeder looks just like it did when I bought it many years ago. No damage, not even any wear and tear. I have it screwed to the wall in a stall. It is safe and very very durable. I highly recommend this feeder! The money saved in wasted hay far out weighs the initial purchase price.
How long did it take to receive the hay feeder?
Briana M on Jan 7, 2019
BEST ANSWER: We placed this order over a year ago so I don't recall exactly, but it was a reasonable time from order to delivery.
Will this feeder hold up in cold temps. ?
Amy T on Dec 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes this feeder holds up well in cold temperatures. Of course I’m in Nevada and we do reach freezing temps here but only short periods of time. I’ve had my feeder for a couple years now and I’m very happy with it.
Would the jr size work for my goats?
Laura O on Jun 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Depends on how tall your goats are...they may be able to reach hay from top, but are their necks long enough or bodies tall enough for them to be able to bend into the bottom of the feeder once the hay is low ? Check measurements on the feeder; height/depth.
Why is High Country slow hay feeder not available?
Sherry L on Aug 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I can't answer why they do not have it in stock, but will tell you it is a great product. It is very durable. It has saved me hundreds of dollars in wasted hay. It is a very, very good product and worth every penny. The smaller size, the Junior is very big, and more than adequate to feed one horse.
are there replacement nets, if so where do I get them and how much?
kathy l on Jun 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi Kathy, I had state line call the factory and they ordered them direct from country plastic and they shipped from country plastics. state line can look up my order I did 2 orders first one for the 2 jr. slow feeders and the next order for the extra nets things. they did not have them for sale in the books or on line I had to call country plastic and they said state line can order them from them and ship out from them. that's how I did it. took a day or 2 to get the pricing. cant remember how much but it wasn't a lot. it had the nets and new frames.
hope this helps.. I really love my feeders
Have been waiting several months when will this be badk in stock?
A shopper on Aug 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately the Manufacturer has not given us an estimated date of availability. Inventory on our site is "live," however, so as soon as we have information, it will post online.

Are the grids that cross the hay metal or vinyl? My horse and two goats eat from the same trough --- but the goats eat EVERYTHING, including plastic/vinyl. Meanwhile, the horse is throwing all the hay out on the ground and much of it is being wasted. HELP !
marci w on Jan 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Small nylon-webbed grate holes.
To confirm...the grate is a nylon web and not metal...correct.? Metal is bad for their teeth
Dennis G on Feb 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This grate is nylon webbing.
