Horse Feeder - new type ??
 
I've seen this at the Expo. In fact cool looking and save hay from getting wet. The only thing I didn't quite like: I think it doesn't have a bottom, but not sure (I forgot to ask... :) ).

That is pretty cool :D They need to make it round though so it would be easier to move. I feed big round bales and just tip mine up move in the bale, roll it over and tip it back down. I have tied a tarp to the top of mine during the rainy season but that would be so much easier
I noticed they do have a floor as an option.

Do you remember how much they were?

Hmmm I was just looking for something like this, but I also found the Bale Buddy for round bails

I didn't ask for the price as I have just 2 horses (no point of big feeder), but person from local horse forum called and she mentioned that it is something like $585 plus shipping for the large one.

I'd be more likely to just make one myself. I'm cheap. I'm sure it wouldn't be hard. You could make one out of just about anything if you cant get plastic. If you make it out of (horse safe) wood, put shingles on top and line the inside with a tarp or something.

Sorry to double post but for those of you with few horses what about something like this? Who cares if its for llamas. :)

Or this for round bale feeders instead of the buddy bale

We did the hay rack ourself from wood. No roof though, but I put horses to the stalls (with upper door opened) when it's raining, so I really don't need one. Plus I give flakes 4 times a day, not free-choice, so it kinda solves the problem. I was thinking about making a roof, but since we have no experience, I dont' find it safe enough for horses of we do it ourself.

I think I'll just keep tying a tarp to the top of mine. Plus it helps get them used to tarps :wink:

Yeh, I agree. If I'd be rich.... ;) But it's cheaper to be creative... Lol!
