My new favorite feeder!

Thought I'd share with directions. All in all, this cost $44 for the net and lacing (and I have plenty left over to make another), and then however much my friend is going to charge me for the tire, so I'm thinking no more than $75 total for this feeder. So far, I've only fed one bale at a time since I have two horses, but I'm confident I could probably feed two or more, especially since it can go higher than the tire itself and the net holds it in.

I designed this off of the feeders at happygrazers.com since I didn't want to pay $300+ and thought I could make a bigger and better one anyway :P

That is an odd looking tire: what type of tire is it? Do you think the feeder will stand up against big horse abuse? I love this feeder!!

Nice handiwork! I love D.I.Y., especially if the end result is practical and saves you money.

I think they forgot to describe the super-difficult step of turning a tire inside out ;)
