IR Horse Topics
|"IR can be avoided completely with adequate exercise and diet management." Dr. Eleanor Kellon|
|This wiki began partly as an independent photo-sharing extension to a discussion group addressing insulin resistance in horses. All of the information throughout this wiki regarding Paddock Paradise and slow feeding is equally beneficial for perfectly healthy horses. |
This section will consolidate certain practical information for owners of IR horses -- topics like eradicating grass, soaking hay, and so forth.
We are experimenting with using slow feeders and turnout tracks as tools to meet the IR horse's special requirements for nutrition and exercise within an interesting healthy environment. Paddock Paradise.
Please contact tangledmanes with any suggestions, or simply post your ideas and experiences about using slow feeders and/or Paddock Paradise to keep your horse's IR under control.

I made a slow feeder with one of those blue barrels in the pictures. It has an open top with the plywood on the insidewith holes in it. The opening on top is 36" from the ground but I'm still worriedhe's gonna get his foot stuck in it. Hershey is about 16 hands. He likes to paw at his hay when it's on the ground. I'm scard to leave it in the barn over night. Can anyone tell me if he can raise his leg higher then 36"?
