Many horses lift their head when feeding; this causes expensive feed and supplements to drop to the ground. When your horse tries to retrieve the dropped feed from the ground, they often get more than you paid for; worm causing parasites, sand, dirt, gravel, or just an unpleasant mouthful of wood shavings. PRE-VENT Feeders® can help solve this problem. The unique patent pending design helps encourage your horse to eat with his/her head down, which helps you prevent feed and supplement waste and keeps your horse healthy.
For the convenience of humans; many horses have been unintentionally trained to be aggressive eaters. Unsecured feeders, over the fence feeders and corner feeders mounted at unnatural feeding heights all carry the potential to create a choke episode. Choke is the blocking of the esophagus. Choke can be fatal and often becomes chronic from scar tissue created by each choke episode. PRE-VENT Feeders® patent pending design slows down the feeding process and decreases the amount of feed per bite, this helps prevent choke in horses.
PRE-VENT Feeders® pay for themselves! A recent study* at Texas A&M's Department of Animal Science reported that PRE-VENT Feeders® actually helped prevent feed waste by as much as 25% when compared to other horse feeders on the market. So, when used as recommended, PRE-VENT Feeders® can pay for themselves in terms of saved feed and supplements and THAT is money in your pocket!
