"The nets may have saved my horses life rephrase …they did save my horses life, by getting her digestion system working it let her pass a gastrointestinal enterolith about the size of a tennis ball. Now my horses are happy and content also…love the nets.."
These feeders are TOUGH, and have withstood several months now of inclement weather and busy mouths nibbling through them. Both the extended day feeders and the bale bags are super easy to use. I just can’t believe we went so long without them!
"My Rocky is rather famous for his "monkey personality" which includes being an escape artist, blanket remover, knot houdini, and fly mask hide and seek. His Freedom Feeder has substantially cut back his mischief making."
"She's such a different horse now that she has access to hay all the time. She is happy and healthy!! Thanks!!"
Now, when I am out riding my horses, they are not barn spoiled and anxious to get back to the barn. Also, all of the dominate posturing over food has disappeared.
My oldest horse has stopped pacing circles in his stall and everyone else is quieter since he is.
"My filly is absolutely thriving with it. She holds her weight (even through crazy growth spurts). She is calm, she rarely hunts around her paddock for food, and best of all she no longer chews wood habitually."
"I thought my horses were high strung. They are so relaxed and gentle now. I can’t say enough good things about the change the slow feeders have made in my horse’s lives. I highly recommend them."
"I was worried about sand colic. This setup works great. I've been feeding the horses on a sand lot for 3 years with the same bags with no issues at all."
Freedom Feeder started the slow feed industry in the United States in 2007 and has stood the test of time. We are knowledgeable horse people who care about your horse’s health and well-being and are here to help you and your horse’s transition back to grazing.
Think of Freedom Feeder as a way for your horses to have pasture grazing available when they don't have pasture... in the barn, in the trailer, at competitions, camping. Keeping your horses grazing reduces their stress, protects their digestive system and improves their performance.
We all know that horses are grazing animals. Their digestive systems never truly stop producing digestive acids. When their sensitive stomachs are empty of food they are stressed, prone to colic, ulcers, and boredom leading to destructive stall vices just to mention a few of the consequences.
