Default New Hay Feeder!

So Excited about the new hay feeder hubby made for me today! I hope we can install it in the doe pasture tomorrow! Its made to minimize hay waste, and will hopefully keep the hay dry in wet weather.

We got it installed today!!! But it was getting dark, so I didn't get a pic. I need to paint it, and we are putting a heavy duty tarp over the top to keep the hay as dry as possible and to keep it from being snowed in etc . . . The tarp will be weighted with a 2x4 to keep it hanging.

I put a bit of hay in it and they figured out how to use it real quick lol! I'll try to post a pic tomorrow! I am hoping it is big enough that when we are on vacation that the hay will last 4-7 days, so our animal sitters won't have to deal to much with so many chores. (We have horses, goats, chickens, dog and cats) It can be a handful!!!

Her she is! I loaded it up today to see how much it can hold and I think its about the same as the horse feeder which is 100 gallons!

Like I said I still need to paint it, and put the tarp on in, so its not done yet, but this give you the idea.
