These timed feeders are reliable enough that you can go away for the weekend without worrying about your livestock being fed. The heavy duty construction insures a long lasting trouble free operation for years to come.
This automatic feeder is available in both 2 or 4 horse models. The 2 horse model will hold approximately 3 hay bales. The 4 horse feeders will hold approximately 8 bales of hay. Load the hay rack with food a couple of times a week and forget it. The preset times you set on the timer assure that your horses will be fed thier correct ration of feed on time every time, and at the feeding duration you select. Reduce your work load related to feeding horses. Save up to 30% on the cost by cutting back on wasted hay. Also greatly helps reduce the chances of colic due to overeating.
Keeping wasted hay to a minimum can make this automated hay rack pay for itself very quickly.

There is a full length door on each side allowing horses access to the hay trough. When the pre-set time is reached a electric winch lowers the doors and the horses start to eat the food. When the second pre-set time is reached the door winch slowly raises the doors, stopping the animals access to the feed trough. This is controlled by a electric timer which can be programmed to do this as many as 10 times a day.
The automated winch is powered by a 12 volt car battery. To keep the battery charged, a 15 watt solar panel does the job perfectly. The solar panel allows operation of the horse feeder several times a day with no loss of power or need for other types of battery charging. For applications where solar power is not feasible and as a backup we offer a small 12 volt trickle charger that does the job keeping the battery fully charged.
That next cold and rainy morning, just sit back with another cup of coffee and let this automatic unit take care of the feeding chores for you!

What is colic? And what kinds of preventive measures can be taken to reduce the risk of colic. Colic is the number one natural killer of horses and is used to describe a large range of abdominal discomforts, Intestinal Dysfunctions. Colic may be caused by many different things here are some of the more common causes. Sand colic is from when horses are eating off of sandy ground and ingest some of the sand or dirt. The sand builds up in the Intestines over time and eventually causes pain a horse could be carrying up to 80 pounds of sand before showing signs of colic. Overfeeding is another sign of colic, if a animal gorges itself and eats too much this can also cause colic. An irregular feed schedule may also cause a horse to eat too much too fast if he gets really hungry. Feeding right after riding and if they are still hot this could also cause them to come down with colic. Sudden changes in feed could also be a cause of colic when you change feeds you should do so slowly a little at time. Moldy or rotten feed that has gotten wet could also be a source of colic.
Some of the symptoms of colic are, sweating, pawing, rolling around on the ground, kicking or biting at the belly, lack of appetite, lying down, restlessness. If you suspect your horse has colic, call your vet immediately. Colic can quickly turn deadly without prompt attention. Remember, only a trained person can tell you if your case of colic is serious or not.
