Horses naturally compete for food in a pastured herd, moving from pile to pile of forage. Some horses learn to eat fast to avoid missing out on a meal, especially if they’re older or lower in the herd hierarchy. Further, forage restriction can cause a horse to go into survival mode, increasing their rate of consumption.
