    I would check into the Hay Huts (different brand). They seem to be sturdier than the ones you're looking at. I looked at both and went with the Hay Hut and am VERY happy with it.

    Neither will I!!! I'm thinking about incorporating the Cinch Net (http://cinchchix.com/the-cinch-products.html) that was mentioned in another thread with my Hay Hut. Especially for the boys! They still pull the hay out of the feeder and make a mess, but what's left inside the Hay Hut stays very dry.

    Curious how the one the OP posted compares price-wise to the Hay Hut. I couldn't find any pricing on the Duplessis site.

    I found this site (http://cheshirehorse.com/Duplessis-H...der-P5001.aspx) that sells them for $350. I paid $600 for the Hay Hut I currently have. I'm planning on getting another one for my other paddock, but they're now $700. It's worth what I paid, though.

    I found the Duplessis at $750 delivered. On comparing the two, Duplessis has been making them longer, I think they are possibly the original manufacturer, and they offer great after service per some of the responses I have gotten on other sites. Also, the dark green of the Hay Hut looks like it would be hot and dark for the horses, especially dark at night. I called the dealer Cheshirehorse and they no longer have them ($350 was for 1/2 the unit - 4 openings to use for square bales) I think I will go with the Duplessis - thanks, let you all know.

    a neat option to add a roof to our hay rings - they work great with bale buddies and nets too.
