First time horses spending the night off property.

We are trailering horse and my friends horse (the board horse) to my other friends house and the horses and us girls are spending the night at my friends house.

This is the horses first time spending the night off property. My friend said to bring 4 flakes of hay for my mare and 3 for my friends gelding. But I don't know how to pack it. In plastic clean bins?

If you use hay nets, stuff them and put them in large trash bags. I'm sure clean plastic bins would work too if you can find the right size.

A big black leaf garbage bag would be good.

Also, I'd pack and give them more then their normal ration. Hay will encourage them to eat instead of run around like they have never seen a barn, fence or horse before.

Assuming that your hay is in small square bales, why not just take a full bale? It's better to have too much than not enough. Then you can open the bale when you get there.

Even if we know that we be fencing off an area of grass for the horses to graze on, we still bring more than they would need in hay normally.
