High Times will now be enjoying the many benefits of eating soaked hay. As the demands of Billy's training regimen increase through his International career, his feeding program becomes more and more crucial. The laborious tradition of soaking hay has long since been followed in England and Europe for their high performance horses, but leave it to American ingenuity to find a way to make it fully automated and hassle free! And unlike "steamed" hay, that presents fire hazards as well as cooking the nutrients out of the hay, The Soaker preserves all of the essential minerals and nutrients while it washes away the debris and sugars.
SO WHY SOAK HAY?
Horses tend to eat less, eat longer, and require less supplementation when fed soaked hay. Soaking hay is a proactive approach to your horse's health.
Allows for zinc and copper to be more readily absorbed by reducing competing minerals.
Allows for hoof building blocks to be more readily absorbed and utilized by the horse. Reduces sugar and inflammation and encourages proper hoof growth and function.
Reduces particulate matter and impedes the inhalation of allergens by 90%. Increases immune system health. Studies show same reduction as steaming.
HEAVES (COPD) (RAO):
Reduces particulate matter and impedes inhalation of mold, spores, dust, etc by 90%. Studies show same reduction as steaming.
Slows down eating, softens hay to alleviate damage of digestive tract, neutralizes pH, and encourages proper digestion and gut health.
Soaking hay can reduce sugar in hay by up to 30%. Excess sugar suppresses the immune system, promotes inflammation, and raises insulin levels.
REDUCE POTASSIUM (HYPP):
Soaking can reduce Potassium by up to 50%. Potassium is considered a competing mineral, although necessary, too much Potassium inhibits the absorption of other important minerals.
One flake of hay can hold up to 2 gallons of water. This reduces risk of Colic, Choke, and Impaction. Encourages proper metabolic function, reduces dehydration, and increases performance.
Horses maintain proper weight due to increased water content of soaked hay and reduced sugar.
Wet hay is easier to chew.
Reduces inflammation by reducing sugar content and maintaining proper hydration promotes circulation.
Alleviates the high’s and low’s of feed by reducing the amount of sugar, toxins, and competing minerals.
By reducing sugar, allergens, toxins, and competing nutrients, the body is able to focus on staying healthy and thriving.
TENDON, LIGAMENT, MUSCLE HEALTH:
Maintaining proper hydration levels promotes optimum circulation. The reduction of sugars allow for tendons, ligaments, and muscles to stay limber and strong.
