The Slow Bale Buddy is the safest, best quality small mesh hay feeder on the market today. The only one with a one year warranty, it is the perfect solution for feeding horses round and square bales of all sizes. Made of soft, strong knotless nylon netting with 1 1/2 inch openings, All seams and openings are reinforced and it fastens with a special patented safety fastener that eliminates the dangerous drawstring closures of other small mesh slow feeders. It completely encloses the bale so that the horses must pull the hay through the holes in the netting to eat. Waste is completely eliminated and aggressive and anxious horses are calmed by having to graze and forage for their hay. Overweight horses will walk away from the hay without overeating, helping to normalize weight. Because grazing is always on the surface of the bale it is excellent for feeding horses with breathing problems. Slow feeding benefits most horses and is the most natural way to feed hay.
While not for use with shod horses unless used in conjunction with another feeder, the Slow Bale Buddy is completely safe for use with all horses, (even minis) as the holes are too small to get caught in. When given a choice between freely fed hay and the Slow Bale Buddy in field tests, most horses preferred to eat from the Slow Feeder.
