Pre-Vent Horse Feeders Testimonials - prevent sand ingestion, choke, feed waste
As some of you may remember, Beau suffered a severe choke during a horrible snowstorm a few weeks ago. We managed to find a vet to come out and tube him as ours refused to travel due to the weather and her being a great distance from our barn.
Right or wrong, we felt abandoned and started searching for another vet closer to our barn.
We found a fantastic vet and had him come out to examine Beau's teeth. He had moderate points, and the teeth were floated. BUT it was the vet's opinion that while the teeth may or may not have contributed to Beau's choke, that his temperment was the biggest factor. He gave us some suggestions such as adding non swallowable rocks to his feed bucket, soaking his grain, or switching him to extruded nuggets. He also suggested we buy him a pre vent feed tub.
Which we did....ordered it a few days ago....to the tune of (with the stall installation kit, and shipping) $118.
Was wondering if anyone had heard of this feeder or knows anyone who uses one?
So that's the bad news, Beau's choke problem may be his temperment...which is alot harder to solve than a floating!!!
