Innovative Horse Feeder Helps Prevent Choke and Minimizes Feed Waste
Pre-Vent¨ Feeder features patent pending design to slow horses during feeding;
imitate natural grazing behavior
March 26, 2012 – Houston, Texas. An innovative new horse feeder is delivering health benefits to horses and and savings to their owners across the country. Pre-Vent¨ Feeders, a Houston-based company focused on developing simple, effective feeding solutions for horses, has introduced the first and only horse feeder designed to imitate a horse’s natural grazing behavior and address poor feeding behaviors such as aggressive eating.
The Pre-Vent Feeder’s patent pending wide base and angled compartments are designed to force a horse to use his tongue and lips to retrieve small amounts of grain, requiring him to concentrate and keep his head down while feeding.
“We’ve received very positive feedback from horse owners that have introduced Pre-Vent horse feeders to their problem eaters, ” said Kaelin Hanks, vice president of sales and marketing for Pre-Vent Feeders. “By imitating the natural grazing behavior of a horse, the Pre-Vent feeders are helping horses slow down during eating, which reduces choke and minimizes feed waste.”
