blackshep I believe so. I think it has to do with them swallowing air.

There are people who feed horses with hay nets to either slow them down, reduce mess/wastage, or keep them from ingesting dirt/bedding.

But this can cause them to cough, because it opens up their windpipe and they tend to inhale the dust particles more than if they eat off the ground.

I always look at it as feeding in the position that nature intended them to eat. Horses graze and eat off the ground and wolves aren't fed in elevated bowls.

interesting. I saw raised bowls recommended to prevent bloat.

I guess I don't understand how it prevents nor causes it. is it the way the neck is bent or?

lhczth Stainless and no matter the size of the bowl they pick up what ever I feed them and drop it into their crate first.

Mesonoxian It sounds like 2-3 quarts is the way to go, and having some rubber isn't a problem. Thank you all!
