Do I need a stretch sleezy or neck cover to protect him for best? LOL, it will have to match his springtime waterproof turnout...if it ever gets here that is!

Oh gee....no wonder he lost his mane, he didn't rub it off, he pulled his hair out at the thought of the snazzy pink blanket!! a lined neck cover (smooth nylon liner) would work just as we'll as a sleezy....I saw a sleezy without the face cover a while back, wish I'd bought it!!!!

Its a section that looks similar to this. The sections are a bit narrower but not crazy narrow. The bales are a few feet from the section of feeder we just peel off sections and place them in the feeder area. We have done it for about 10 years and never had a problem until the current chowder head who can't be pastured with those.

Those metal roundbale feeders are dangerous for horses! Several friends of mine had their horses jump in and injured themselves seriously getting out, one very expensive reining horse had to be put down. If I am going on holidays, I will put a round bale out, just so my son doesn't have to feed twice a day, however if I am here, I store the rounds in the hay shed and pitch fork it off. Lasts twice as long and my horses aren't two ton Tonys! Ben is your dressage horse, correct? He should have a short pulled mane anyways, guess he made that decision for you!

I thought castle too! Kinda scary one at that. My poor little Rosie would fall in and not be able to get out.

I second the slow feeder hay nets! Did some checking and reading up about them, designed my own out of all safe materials, and haven't looked back. Costed me a whopping $30 (didn't say it was pretty) and is still holding up well after a year. Not bad for a DIY project that has gotten heaps of abuse.
