It's been 5 years since I bought my Haygain steamer. It's hands down the most important thing I have ever purchased for my horses health.

I love my Haygain. I have always said it is the one item on the yard that we just can't do without, in fact, we have just bought our second one.

"We’ve been using a Haygain steamer for 9 months and it has made a tremendous difference for us. Belle’s breathing is better and her coat is glorious. We love our steamer."

I have had my Haygain steamer just over 2 years and absolutely love it. If I give my horses dry hay it makes them cough but when they have steamed hay the coughing stops. I wouldn't be without it.

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!

My horses are cough free and happy which makes me happy.
