Effects of intermittent feed deprivation and stall confinement with ad libitum access to hay on gastric ulceration in horses. By Murray MJ , Eichorn ES.
CONCLUSIONS AND CLINICAL RELEVANCE:
Severe ulceration of the gastric squamous epithelial mucosa, caused by excess acidity, can develop rapidly in horses deprived of feed or not consuming feed. Compared with being turned out to pasture, stall confinement alone appears to be an important factor in the development of gastric ulcers in horses, probably as a result of altered eating behavior.
Continuous slow feeding is the natural treatment and feeding method for reducing the risk of equine gastric ulcers for horses that do not graze continuously. Slow feeding works by slowing down the horses eating, making the hay last for longer. As health is reestablished the horse is re-taught to eat in a natural way instead of trying to finish what has been made available as fast as possible.
Slow feeding needs to be continuous to release the horse from the stress caused by seeing the feed come to an end. That stress is what is going to stop him from slowing his eating down and stop over eating. If sound horses eating in a natural way could not balance their own eating the horse (as a specie) would have gone extinct long before they met their first human.
