'One of my primary focuses within our practice is sport horse medicine and nutrition. Since 2009, I have begun using the Haygain hay steamer as an integral part of treatment for respiratory disease and allergy-affected horses. Primarily they reduced dust, including the spores and moulds found in all hay types, reducing the extent of medications required to control COPD/Heaves in horses. One of the larger impacts has been the Haygain as a tool for the classic 'hard keeping horse.' These typical horses, once balanced with an appropriate nutrition plan, benefit from the Haygain hay because they are willing to consume more appropriate amounts of hay for their body weights. I attribute this to the reinvigoration or rehydration of the fructans found with all hay types. Also, for my travelling sport horses, the reintroduction of over three gallons of water to each bale of hay, affords me the confidence that horses that typically would decrease their hay consumption while competing, now consume the same if not more feed. Introducing more water into a horse's diet without the leaching affects of soaking hay, let alone without the mess is ideal. Haygain is part of my everyday discussion when reviewing, altering and managing sport horse diets. Summer-affected allergy horses have shown success with reduced clinical signs and decreased medical management from previous years and the only change in their treatment plan has been a Haygain hay steamer.'
