Neat feed bin idea

A friend saw this on Pintrest and e-mailed it to me.

In case folks haven't seen it or something similar, I like this arrangement because the feed bins are plastic garbage cans that are easy to get at and remove for washing. Safe from rodents unless they're big and hungry enough to chew thru a wood frame

For a Horse Barn / horse feed bins

Really? I just copied and pasted the picture. And I thought my work computer was restrictive.

Thanks Crone, that one did it.

Interesting idea, and I like that they can be lifted out for cleaning.

that's a really neat idea for feed bins. Iam afaid I have rodents that would find a way into them. Heck they got into our garage by chewing holes in the wood frame. The rodents we have are red squirrels they don't give up easly.

Raccoons could easily open those.

We use metal trash cans and have to FIRMLY attach lids as Racoons have figured out the barn is empty until we feed/bring in around 9pm and will enter through the stalls that have runs.
