Following a good dietary feeding programme with the Groom Robot feeder will contribute greatly to your equine health and performance and result in a content horse. You will notice that your horse’s behaviour has improved and the bad habits he may have been displaying such as wood chewing are now absent. He will appear more content and a happier personality will emerge as all of his nutritional needs are met.
Trickle-feeding your horse is key to its performance, he has evolved to feed this way and maintaining his natural dietary needs will help to keep him in tip top health. He will no longer eat large meals that will cause him digestive problems therefore you will be promoting good gastric support for him. Keeping the digestive tract moving is essential to good gut mobility.
Another important part of your horses feeding management is keeping him well hydrated. On average he should be consuming 10-15 gallons of fresh clean water per day, high performance horses however, can drink up to 30 gallons. A horse can lose all of its body fat and half of its body protein and still survive, but a loss of just 15% in body water can prove to be fatal. Groom Robot will monitor the amount of water your horse consumes in 24 hours ensuring he is kept well hydrated with clean fresh water which will also help restore his natural PH balance by neutralising acids that cause digestive upsets.
Good dietary feeding management should also be implemented with good stable and yard care. Groom Robot minimizes wasted feed and also helps to reduce the amount of fecally contaminated food and water your horse ingests, therefore reducing the risk of parasitic infections and the discomfort to your horse. Another bonus is you will see a reduction in hay costs too, due to saving on wasted feed as well as saving on expensive treatments and veterinary bills.
Ultimately, your horse’s health, well being and performance relies upon you. To manage its dietary requirement successfully can be challenging at times, which is why we have come up with a solution that will lead the way in future equine nutrition management. Groom Robot automated feeding systems are specifically designed to provide the daily feeding schedule that every horse requires for optimum equine health and performance.
You will see the results very quickly – money saved on veterinary bills and medication, overall annual running costs reduced due to saving on labour costs plus the reduction on hay consumption by eliminating waste, but most importantly, a happy and healthy horse that is following a diet that is specifically geared to work in harmony with their naturally evolved anatomy.
