Easy Keeper - Making it Easy to Keep Him Healthy

Easy Keeper - Making it Easy to Keep Him Healthy

Equine obesity is a difficult yet highly common issue all over the world, and in the Easy Keeper teleseminar transcribed here, we look at the causes, prevention and solutions. Research on equine obesity started with studies on human obesity, looking at elements like hormonal responses and effect of exercise. Then the research moved to horses, and lo and behold, found that the drivers of weight issues for people are, for the most part, the same as for horses. The Easy Keeper offers four keys to successful equine weight management that not only work but bring benefits far beyond reducing a horse's girth. 

Book Highlights:

  • Insulin and leptin resistance
  • Body fat and inflammation
  • Pasture grazing
  • Foods to avoid
  • The Four Keys: Losing weight the right way

Before you order, please note:

  • Unsure of the net hole size for your grazing animals? Please refer to our online Net Guide. If you still are not sure about sizing, please  Contact Us directly. 
  • We highly recommend all grazing animals to be introduced to nets with loose hay feedings for the first few days (up 7 days). Remember, this process should be practiced every time you re-introduce nets.
  • Many customers do not use their hay nets all year round. When re-introducing the NAG Bag nets, we recommend feeding loose hay alongside the net for the first couple of days. When you see your grazing animals leaving the loose hay, you know the net has been properly accepted. 
  • All NAG Bags do not need to be filled to their total capacity. NAG Bags can also be fed loose on the ground with ease with no shod or horned animals.
  • Remember that starving an animal out with only a flake of hay in the AM and PM will not help them lose weight! It only causes stress, ulcers and may cause other habits with this feeding practice. It’s the hay that may need to be corrected; we recommend hay testing. You will see many changes physically and emotionally when feeding correctly. For more information on this topic, check out our resources. 
  • Disclaimer: We do not recommend using nets with horned animals, horses with blankets or non-breakaway halters. Nets may be used with shod horses but must be used in a feeder, tub or hung high. NAG Bag nets may be used with blankets as long as the buckles are covered.
