I did a quick search though old treads but didn't find anything that addressed my question.
I have a 2 horse straight load, walk-thru horse trailer, with feed mangers above where saddles and tack are stored. It's a full walk through so there is a door to walk though into the tackroom when loading and another one to walk out the front, which leaves a space between the two mangers. Trailer is great for what it is BUT my walk-thru "tack room" is always getting showered with hay as the horses push it about in the mangers and though the bars that keep their heads in the mangers.
So, I had the idea of putting a slow feeder net (one with smaller sized holes and not just a hay net) in the manger to 1) control the mess that is made and 2) to possibly reduce the chances of a horse choking (which I worry about constantly with mangers, though it's not happened to me yet *knocking on anything I can find*)
Just wondering what other people think of this idea? Maybe someone else has tried it? Maybe someone thinks I'm a complete idiot for even thinking of trying this? Let me know what ya got!
I do the same. I just tie it up around nose level. It keeps the hay off the floor, which keeps them from being tempted to put their heads down (which keeps them from getting their head tangled up with the chest bar).
I guess my main concerns were that, like Ksojerio mentioned, the bags might somehow get tossed out of the feeders, but I could easily tie the feeder to the bars that form the manger and I think I should be golden.
