    Default Hay feeder

    http://www.poulingrain.com/pdf/Pouli...20-%202010.pdf

    I am hoping someone can tell me the name of this hay feeder.
    I attached the link to the brochure...it is pictured in the hay extender pellet section.

    Anyone know the brand so I can order it?
    Tia!

    I think TSC carries it. Called a basket feeder or something like that.

    I love mine! It's held up very well over the past 6 or 7 years.

    How heavy is it?
    Can one person move it?

    Thanks, good to hear the positive feedback.

    One person can move it no problem. The basket just lifts out of the metal ring. Personally I didn't like ours as the horses just wasted the hay, but if you used it with a hay net also it might work well. Of course it may depend on the horse as well, ours just made a mess of it.

    How do the horses waste the hay?

    It looks deep enough that it would not be pushed out?

    Any other issues I should consider?

    They can shove the hay out. We use netting to turn them into slow feeders. Works great! See the following thread for details.

    Agree with Badger. Mine just flipped it right out of the ring looking for the tastiest morsel.

    Thanks Badger for the link and description to making a haynet and sources...very much appreciated.
    I do not like the waste, nor do I like feeding them on the sandy ground. This hay feeder seems to be the safest I have seen on the market. Your hay net over the basket will prevent them tossing out the hay, and slow down their feeding.
    Thank you.
    Glad to hear positive comments and a solution for the tossing the hay out that horses love to do so they can let you know how silly their human is...hah, now I can fix that issue with the hay net, which is an easy, inexpensive, quick fix. Super.
