"I purchased the Haygain steamer for 'My Patsy’ (Patsy) grey 7yo mare bred in Ireland by Womanizer (KWPN) out of a Lux Z mare (Lux Like Patsy Hanoverian). She is super fun but also very sensitive which includes her environment. Patsy had an intermittent niggling cough. We altered bedding, vacuumed stables etc. She is a fantastically good doer and I keep my horses on a mainly forage based diet with very little additional feed- just enough for supplements and no cereals. Therefore, quality of the hay is really important and am not a fan of haylage. Her cough continued and I read your reviews so decided to purchase. I am a huge sceptic of horsey marketing having grown up with frugal hunting grandparents - the type that had one saddle for 15 horses!. Within 2 days cough has gone, she has more energy, I am feeding less because there is no waste so none soaked in stable droppings and it smells amazing. My veteran, Max, (the chestnut - retired 3*) also loves it. Also your payment options are really in tune with a market of owners that work hard to fund their sport, the payments over 6 months made it so much easier."

"Possibly the best investment I have ever made! After years of freezing hands, breaking layers of ice, additional time spent in the cold and dark on my own I decided that I would save up and treat myself to a Haygain 600 steamer. This has reduced my workload massively, saves my back trying to lug around water logged haynets and the horses love the steamed hay much more than cold, wet hay. Customer service and delivery were excellent and I can honestly say that I have not looked back. Please don't think that you have to be rich, own a livery yard or have electric at your yard as I have none of these things. I fill up haynets each night and take them home with me to steam in my garage, I then transport them back up the yard in the evening... easy and smells lush. So glad I took the plunge, I'm one happy horsey lady."

"The Haygain is exactly what it says it is, my mare that spent all last year coughing hasn’t coughed once this year, they absolutely love the steamed hay and don’t waste any.Yes initial outlay is expensive but far cheaper in the long run than calling out the vet!Honestly l was in 2 minds whether the Haygain steamer would actually work but it’s like a miracle cure lol no coughs, no struggling to walk up hills when we go out riding, all l say is long may it last."

"When my horses are happy, I’m happy and my horses are so happy on their ComfortStall stable flooring.It is so soft under foot, whilst being durable and is safely and securely fastened down.The stables not only look and feel amazing, they are now so quick and easy to clean being that the only bedding needed is to absorb urine.Mucking out used to take up to 2 hours and now only takes me 30 minutes, allowing me more time to actually enjoy my horses!Less bedding is being used, less is being removed and the poo pile doesn’t fill as quick, again saving time on having to dispose of the manure."

"Worth every penny! This is a quality piece of kit. It feels robust, is simple to use and does the job efficiently in 60 minutes. We have it on a countdown timer so no need to switch it off. It comfortably takes two large haynets and is easy to clean. It sits on a pallet so that a tray can collect the drainage. Every evening we set it up ready to just switch on in the morning. The horses love the hay and eat all of it, no dry coughs either. For me a major benefit is no more colossally heavy haynets to lift out of soakers. My back thanks you Haygain!"

"Congrats Haygain for your continued marvellous customer service to back up your equally fabulous product. My three horses' respiratory health has been changed beyond belief after switching totally to steamed hay this past winter, when my haygain steamer has been on overtime .... still in daily use even now in the summer months, as they are on restricted grazing so their ration of steamed hay is welcomed for breakfast each day! Worth every penny, and particularly for the complementary advice and customer care."

"Steaming her hay made such a massive difference, she is not itchy at all anymore and there is no coughing at all, Bow is the fussiest mare you could meet when it comes to hay, she will go on hunger strike if she does not like a bale of hay or if it is dusty which can be worrying as I don’t want her dropping weight! The Haygain steamer has been brilliant for this, Bow now calls to me from across the yard when she smells the steamed hay and she finishes up every last scrap which is great. She also always used to make such a mess in the stable by dunking the hay but now it is steamed she doesn’t need to.”

"We’ve been using the Haygain Steamer for just over a month and it’s made ours and the horses lives so much better. The coughs have disappeared and they are all so much healthier eating steamed and we’re not wasting so much as they love it!The staff at Haygain are really helpful-nothing is too much trouble and the service they provide is well worth the 5 stars."
- Caroline Williamson
"Wish we had bought one sooner. The horses love it! Horses which you used to be on soaked hay for health reasons, do very well on the steamed hay. Very economical on water compared to soaking and so easy to use. Would never go back to soaking. A fantastic product, Thank You!"
"All our horses and ponies at Penniwells RDA are on Haygain steamed hay - they love it and we have no coughs or runny noses. Thank you, Haygain."
