FEED THE WAY NATURE INTENDED
iFEED mimics your horse’s natural grazing behavior by automatically delivering feed in many small portions over the course of each day and night.
Small portions frequently – it is a simple concept, universally accepted by leading veterinarians and equine nutritionists as the correct way to feed horses.
In a perfect world, you could deliver individual handfuls of feed to your horse throughout the day and night. With iFEED, you can do just that for your horse. Deliver dozens, or even hundreds of small portions to your horse each day on a schedule you set.
iFEED can be installed on vertical bars, horizontal bars, mesh, and directly on wood walls. Installation hardware is included. Heavy duty zip ties work well too, and make it easy to move the unit if needed.
The 2 amp power supply can operate up to 16 units which makes it easy to add on to your system if you decide to put multiple horses on iFEED.
Add-on units and funnels are sold separately. This enables you to feed all your horses at the same time while still being able to feed each horse individual amounts.

The Science Behind Smaller Portions
Horses have a small stomach, and produce acid constantly. Saliva helps to neutralize the acid, and buffers the sensitive lining of the stomach against the acid. But horses only produce saliva when they chew. Feeding large grain meals followed by hours of fasting overloads their sensitive digestive system, and will sooner or later cause digestive problems with your horse.
By delivering frequent small portions to your horse, you will virtually eliminate gastric ulcers, significantly reduce the risk of colic, and decrease stress in your horse. Reduced stress leads to calm feeding times and can help eradicate cribbing, weaving, stall walking and pawing, among other negative behaviors.
Installation is easy. This video walks you through the setup of an iFEED starter pack from start to finish. The starter pack can work with your existing feed bucket, or purchase an iFEED feed bucket for a complete, integrated set-up.
