I love my Porta Grazers. I used to use nibble nets, but my equine chiropractor said eating from a net isnt the best in the long term. Eating with their head down is the best so I bought Porta-Grazers.

HI Walt,  I received the porta-grazer and took it to the barn. The quarter horse mare took to it immediately.  Some of the boarders really liked it for traveling, long winter days in the stalls, and camping out…thanks  Will keep trying it our with other horses
