postheadericon The Stable Grazer Helps Manage IR

Friesian horse with insulin resistanceThe owner of this insulin resistant Friesian gelding was having difficulty managing his weight. A grazing muzzle had proven unsuccessful in getting this horse to slim down. She decided to put him on a strict diet and exercise program. She ramped up his daily exercise and provided him with low carb feed. Since he was now confined to a half acre drylot, she used a Stable Grazer automatic hay feeder to feed him a small amount of timothy hay every four hours. This kept him busier throughout the day and boosted his fiber intake.

The Results
