You beat me to it.....with the link

If the fence is high enough for them not being able to reach in in the top, you can make a "monster" net, long and with the opening on top fastened with a frame, open, then toss hay in over the fence....kinda like basketball
Then a tub underneath to catch little pieces and seeds, to keep them from picking up sand.

Yes, I've seen a couple boarders with those type. I thought of the barrel type, but modify it with one of those 20-25 gallon bucket with the two rope handle things...it would make the opening plenty wide for the guys to just toss over the fence into it. I'm going to take a look at everything tomorrow. I haven't been able to find the basketball type online though.....what do I search under?

k...I see it...so it's only home made...you can't purchase them. I'll have to go and look at the others here that have them too. This should be a fun project. I just hope Belle's big mouth doesn't eat through it easily. She tries to be dainty, hopefully that will happen with her eating.

You know what? Looking at that picture again, and that looks like our ranch! I don't know a Maria, but wow!

Omg...my chiro has a fb friend that is named Maria Siebrand....I really think that is our ranch! There are two parts to our ranch, and these feeders are on the other part....so I will have to go over there and check them out and see if there is a Maria over there. Too funny.

Her name sounds German and the hayfeeder is German perfection and ingenuity, too
I was actually thinking of a simple hoop to attach a net to.
I tried the barrel feeder, but messed up with the net, holes too big, and the lid wouldn't close right, and, with the oat hay, it was a PITA to fill and wouldn't slide down. Might be better with Bermuda.
That made me mad enough to go ahead a make three nets

Well, the excitement was short-lived....Maria died of Cancer in 2011. She was in Coronado...so I've sure this was her. Same paint in this picture, I believe...so sad.

Either someone carried on her design, she made those for other people or she left hers at the ranch.
