    I found these. Because the metal was my concern as well
    And would they not just eat the plastic off? I'm picturing one of those wire salt brick holders, but maybe these are different?

    I'm about to do this in a larger scale for a round bale. Same concept, but I love the spring idea. I'll try to get pictures up when we're done.
    send some of their smart literate deer who can read road signs up here since ours are just run of the mill dumb ones who get splatted all over creation because they won't stay in the woods

    I was on ebay this morning and saw this...wonder if you can find out who makes the webbing and buy it cheaper. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Window-net-R...c8d941&vxp=mtr

    My husband and I made one this weekend! I just ordered my NN sheet, but if anyone wants to see the "box" that we built I can upload some pictures of it. Hopefully I'll have the sheet in the next two weeks so that I can finish it.

    We just wanted to get this one done quickly because we pick up our new horse in two weeks, but DH wants to make the next one on a spring base. Ours will look similar to this one

    but it's bigger and made with pressure treated wood instead of plywood. I was worried that the plywood wouldn't hold up long term if it was exposed to moisture.

    y'know....after looking at this one, I've decided the 'sheet' way, may? be the way to go, and instead of the above, pick a back corner of the stall....run 2x4s as a 'frame' to make a front exposed sheet of the nibble net, but solid 2x4s down each side connected to stall walls.....one across front / top/connected to those that will hold the corner cut/hinged top....and voila? a corner permanent hinged top nibble net front feeder with no sharp exposed corners or wall space taken up?

    I think that is a good idea. I hope the nn sheets are as good as my bag. Once we have our own place I would also like to make more permanent ones. For now I had to go with something we could move.

    This 2-minute video shows how to put together a particular brand of feeder; but if you were really handy, you could probably follow these instructions to make your own using that Nibble Net sheeting on a frame rather than the grate used in this product.
