Is there any type of feed that the SiMPLEFEEDER does not dispense?
Research has shown us that the inconsistency of the home made feed which included chaff in Australian stud farms is not conducive to allow the SiMPLEFEEDER to dispense the feed with the accuracy that we would recommend. Other research has confirmed that the homemade feed in the Ocala stud farms in Florida is conducive to allow the SiMPLEFEEDER to dispense the feed with the accuracy that we would recommend. View a list of a few feed companies which are compatible with the SIMPLEFEEDER.

Tell me about Equine Disciplines
Only a few stallions compete. Horses progress from grade C to grade B to grade A and on to Grand Prix level. Show jumping horses usually reach their peak between the age of 9 and 16. Show jumpers usually deal in horses, buying from Holland, Belgium, Germany, Austria or Ireland.
The horses are highly priced and prized mainly because the prize money has increased over the years with corporate companies sponsoring major competitions.
There is a great deal of serious sponsorship in show jumping.
The Dressage section has the disciplined movement of horses using specific steps turns etc. The Cross Country section is over a course of 3 to 4 miles, negotiating different jumps of walls, logs and water jumps to test the ability of horse and rider.
Show jumping is the last phase. Badminton, Burleigh and Blenheim are most famous and prestigious events in the UK.
Horses are usually 16hh or taller and reach their peak between 8 and 16 years old.
As mentioned above Dressage involves the disciplined movement of horses using specific steps turns etc. It is performed in an arena, can be performed to music, with the rider smartly dressed. Goodwood is the Mecca of dressage. Horses tend to be 16hh or taller and compete up to the age of 20.
The sport for thoroughbreds only, traced back to three original stallions, which were imported from the Middle East around three hundred years ago. All foals must be registered on a passport at birth. The age of all thoroughbreds is taken from the 1st Jan of their birth year for racing purposes.
Flat Racing is associated with the summer and is a more wealthy form of racing with higher prize money and more expensive horses than The National Hunt Races. Races range from 5 furlongs (8 to a mile) to up to two and a half miles with no obstacles. The minimum weight carried is usually 7 stone with the max being 10 stone.
Horses are usually 15hh to 17hh. National Hunt Racing is associated with winter and a poor relation to flat racing in terms of prize money etc. Mainly geldings (castrated males) and mares compete. Hurdle races are run from two to three and a half miles and the horses jump soft barriers that are easily brushed over. Chases are run over much stiffer obstacles, horses tend to start over hurdles then progress to chases. The main National Hunt meetings are Cheltenham Gold Cup and Aintree Grand National.
Point to Point Racing starts in February and is limited to horses that have seen hunting several times with a recognised local hunt. They are less professional and are run over courses that are basically fields with a few running rails. Horses can progress to hunter classes for which races are held at recognised race courses.
This is where future champions are born. Each stallion covers approx 45+ mares per year at a fee agreed before the covering season starts. The mares usually travel to the yard where the stallion is kept and remain until they are found to be in foal when tested. Large operations would have their own stallions to cover their own mares. Only exceptional racehorses are kept as stallions.
A sport played on a lawn with four chukka players per side. Each player uses up to four ponies per game. It is a very expensive game enjoyed by the rich and famous. Wealthy individuals sponsor their own teams for the season including hiring players from South America, Mexico and Argentina. Polo ponies tend to be quite small.

- Set the time to the current time
- Set the start time to 1 hour before your feed and 30 minutes after (1.5-hour running time)
