WHY SLOW FEEDERS?
BOREDOM -Studies have shown that boredom in horses can cause ulcers, OCD, bad habits, vices, and unnatural behavior. Especially for horses who must live most of there life in smaller spaces. With our slow feeder we can help your horses' boredom, so he can enjoy life a little more and be entertained all day.
FOUNDER - Most laminitis can be linked to horses being over weight. Laminae refers to the insensitive and sensitive tissue that is located between your horse's hoof wall and coffin bone. If the weight of the horse overcomes the cohesion between the two sets of interdigitating laminae, in most case it turns from laminitis to acute founder. With the slow feeder, you cut back your horses feed, with out them gobbling it down in 20 minutes. Now you can make the same amount of feed last for hours, while helping your horse loose weight.
ULCERS - Horses with severe abdominal pain may have gastric ulcers, but they are unlikely to be the primary cause of the abdominal pain. When horses are stressed from lack of interaction, anticipation of food, and boredom, it can cause high levels of hydrochloric acid. This acid starts to accumulate in the stomach, and can cause irritation in the abdomen. With the slow feeder, it can relieve horses of stress and boredom and give them something to focus on and enjoy everyday, without stressing when the next meal, or ride may be.
