Medical Benefits of Horse Slow Feeding
Reduces incidence of stomach ulcers and colic:
Constant chewing allows sodium bicarbonate to be released in the horse's saliva therefore reducing risk of stomach ulcers by reducing the amount of HCI in the horse's stomach.
Great for Laminitic, IR, Cushings Horses:
With hay available all the time, there is no insulin spike. Allows free choice/ low carbohydrate hay access all the time. Pasture hay is usually the best (but not ryegrass or clover hay).
