Slow feeders have been an essential tool for horse owners, for years now, looking to optimize their equine companions' health and well-being. And it has been essential tool for us also. That is the reason why Heica feeders exists.
Digestion of the horse plays an important role on the overall welfare. Hay should be given several times a day to minimize the time the horse spends on an empty stomach. This can be hard to achieve without slow feeders or automated hay feeders. Heica feeder prolongs the eating time and allows hay to be available over a longer period.
Extending the eating time has several benefits on the horse ie.
- Decreases aggressive behaviors
- Improves overall welfare
- Supports the digestion system
- Reduce stereotypical behavior
Heica feeder makes life easier for humans and happier for horses.
