Fodder Solutions?

I keep seeing this contraption on Craigslist and advertised online. I was always intrigued about the idea, but it seemed gimmicky to me, and comes with a hefty price tag. There was a display at the tack store the other day, and they showed us how it worked and gave out the "biscuits" for out horses to try. Hay prices just keep going up, so I guess I am considering one of these. It really would be nice to not have all my hay blow away in windy dayton NV. Have any of you, or someone you know, had experience with these? Thank you in advance for any input you might have.

They also claim it is Cheeper than hay, and better for the horse.

Fodder Solutions

Well this was interesting!
Thanks for posting this NdAppy. I hadn't heard of it before. I can see why you'd be checking it out. It looks like it might be rather limited for horses though as it only seems to offer sprouts for them. While the other "fodder" is primarily grains for livestock. It is a very intriquing concept though and has my frugal minded imagination working.
Did you happen to get a price point on one of these things?
