My mare is on a controlled exercise routine due to a suspensory injury. I just have to say, thank goodness I can take her for a quick walk!
Anyways, I would like to get her a feed that will take her a little longer to eat. I also board, so want it to be conveniant for the BO as well. The one I was looking at was the Health EZ Feeder http://www.healthezhayfeeder.com/ . Has anyone used this? Some of the reviews said that it did not last very long, but some were good too.
The EZ feeder does not hold up to horses that are abusive to it. But lasts for horse gentle on it like seniors (well some seniors...not my old Chip).
The second bag does not hold up at all. I use them only in the horse trailer.
I bought several Tuff One small hole hay nets 2 yrs ago for $4 off a summer end clearance shelf. The string broke on one, but that was an easy fix. My old gelding gets nasty with these bags and he has yet to break one. Best $4 I ever spent.
I had the ez feeders for two horses. One lasted fine, but didn't really slow him down much. The other horse broke his within a few months (used only 1x a day for his night feeding to try to make the hay last longer). I'm using small mesh hay nets now and they've worked the best for slowing them down, and are cheap and durable. Works well for the IR horse that needs his hay weighed and soaked as I weigh it in the net and soak the whole thing.
