Really tough feeders. My drafts play football with it everyday and I don't mean just passing the ball. I mean kick for the field goal type stuff! Not uncommon to see that thing sailing through the air. It definitely isn't as pretty as the website after two years of abuse, but there are no cracks or chips at all. The only maintenance I have done besides wash it with the hose is filing off some tooth marks on the grid. Best money I ever spent. Actually, my DH & I were having a conversation last night about buying a second one for the big field.
