slow feeder for pellets?


lj friedman
 

I read about the portagrazer and how it can be used for pellets as well as hay.. Then, I saw what looked like an electric pellet dispenser? time released?  anyone know if either of these is good for pellets. Jesse.eats 4 qts of mtn sunrise timothy pellets 3 x a day, dumped into a feeder bin on the ground.. and he eats them quickly.. might a slow feed option be a good idea for a horse that eats pellets?  anyone using portagrazer?

Hi Lj,

I don't have experience with the electric pellet dispenser, but have you tried the Nose it Ball for Jesse as was previously suggested?

The nose it ball,, gets pushed out of his stall.. public stable and cant be fixed for this purpose.. lj friedman san diego nov 2014.

You could put the Nose It in a low flat tub perhaps, in the corner of his stall?

Works well!
I have done this in several stalls.Used what was available -wooden boxes that were about 2' X 4' x 2'.
But large rubber maid tubs,etc. would work perfectly,too.Water tubs,too.

Or close the stall door.

I would use a nose it ball. you can buy a black water tub from tractor supply I think its a 40 gallon one  and fill the nose it ball and put it in the tub. he can play with it till the pellets are gone. I use these in my stalls and it keeps the saw dust out in they cant knock it out of the stall.. I also use it in the pasture for my 3 horses and set then apart. it works great.
