Information

Feeding at ground level is the most natural position for a horse to eat

Wild horses graze large pasturelands in the wild and most of their

food is consumed in the heads down position. As a result of this

horses take smaller mouthfuls of food and chew it more thoroughly. It

creates a better mix of saliva which helps reduce the risk of choking
 

and impaction colic.

The grazing position throughout eating allows for the correct anatomic

positioning of the structures of the mouth, throat and muscles of the

jaws and oesophagus to encourage swallowing of food and aid its

passage to the stomach. It keeps food from being aspirated into the

respiratory tract and prevents dust spores and debris in the feed from

being inhaled in through the nostrils.

When horses eat from ground level they actually chew more and food is

better prepared for the breakdown in the digestive tract. When

digesting well-chewed food better absorption takes place so the horse

receives all the benefits of the vitamins, minerals, and nutrients

from the food.

• Great for horses with respiratory problems

• Aids correct feeding consumption

• Allows closer monitoring of food intake: weighing out has never

been made so easy

• Increases time spent ‘grazing’ while consumption levels of

roughage are kept the same

• Indoor and outdoor use as the material is waterproof ​​​​

• Can be used with hay, hay ledge and freeze cut grasses soaked or dry (readdigrass/ graze on ect)

• Approx. 1 slice of hay to one Haylow feeder
