update on hay feeders

We got some foodgrade plastic barrels, drilled holes in the bottom and cut an opening in the top. DH built a wooden stand out of scrap lumber and low and behold, we have a hay feeder. The horses love them and there is very little waste. We had planned on incorporating some kind of grate to make it a slow feeder and we may do that later but it seems to slow them down quite a bit even without a grate. We built them kind of like this:
