feeding hay in the trailer


My family recently purchased a 3 horse slant load trailer. We originally bought this hay feeder: Professional Choice Trailer Corner Feeder - Hay Bags/Nets from SmartPak Equine but it just does not fit in the slant (its a "big" horse trailer so the slants are wider). So I am looking into the best option for feeding hay in the trailer, I know that hay nets are a safety risk if they get their foot caught in the holes. Would something like this feeder be a good option? has anyone used this type? : Dover Saddlery | Cashel Hay Bag . . Any other suggestions would be great!

Thank You!

I hate the kind with the big holes; the hay falls out constantly. I have these in all my stalls and love them, but I'm not sure if they'd be too big for a trailer.

Do they need hay? If you already got the corner feeders... just buy some carabeaner type clips from a super store. To make them reach. Way cheaper than buying new bags. Lol.

I have a bag with the one large hole. It works just fine. I also use my net. I draw it tight & make a no slip knot in it & use one of those clips to hang it high. I use those clips for everything just about.... lol
