The big advantage over a hay rack that you have to hang is that the horses can eat in a natural position ... with their heads down. With a hay net your horse must always make an oblique and pulling movement, which is not good for the horse's neck. A hay net also often results in frustrated horses

A 500 kg horse will eat an average of 12.5 kg of hay per day. One eats a little more than the other. However, the most important thing is that your horse has hay available 24 hours a day. Horses eat more or less hay depending on the season. In the fall, for example, it will eat more hay to prepare for the winter. In the spring the lake will play and walk around. Don't be shocked when your horse initially eats the entire contents of the food bowl. After all, it is used to eating everything instead of having to wait for hours for the next portion. If you fill your tank neatly and again, the horse will realize after a while that it will always have hay available. It will start to eat more slowly and also more evenly throughout the day. And that is precisely the slow feeding effect that we want to achieve! With the Natural Feeding manger, a horse can eat in its natural position: head down. Most hay racks that we know hang high against the wall. The problem with this is that the dust falls down, straight into the nostrils of the horse. When a horse eats from the Natural Feeding food bowl, the big advantage is that the windpipe can clean itself as dust and irritating particles are easily removed. After all, the head always hangs down when the horse eats. With higher feeding, the dust particles, on the other hand, are inhaled and must be coughed out again. Hay nets and trays with grids are a trend to extend the feeding time of a horse ... But horses that have to eat from this often get frustrated. In addition, hay nets are extremely dangerous. Since the horse must always pull the hay from a 'strange' angle, the neck and back muscles are burdened in an unnatural way. In practice, veterinarians also come across horses with dental problems as a result of the use of hay nets and the so-called slow feeders. They stick to it or they grind their teeth on the gratings. With slow feeding it is not the intention that your horse will find it more difficult to eat, but that it will be supplied with hay 24 hours a day, so that it will automatically eat more slowly. Not only social contact and exercise, but also adequate intake of roughage are crucial for the health of your horse.
