Plans For A Wooden Do It Yourself Hay Feeder For Horses For Sale
Plans for a Wooden Do It Yourself Hay Feeder for Horses
These aremy handy dandy Dad's plans for a hay feeder.It is movable, safe for your horses and the tray beneath catches the hay to keep it off the ground. Generally they pull the hay out and eat it off the tray so it is not going to get in their eyes or get breathed in, so it's healthier for them. The boards in the tray, are not nailed or screwed down, so they are replaceable. In these plans and in the picture,we chose to use regular pine boards that arenot painted or treated. Safer for them to eat off of (no chemicals), and because the boards are not fixed, they would hopefully give way in an accident. (We all know how horsescan be sometimes be "suicidal" at times...)
What you will get, is two pieces of sturdy heavy stock letter sized paper with with the plans on it, and a materials list. PLUS PHOTOS!!! The plans are very detailed, easy to read. The pictures show it being assembled. You can more or less do it on a weekend, and the materials would cost about $150.00 at a local lumber company, less at the big stores (but be sure to pick through the boards, lotta junk).
Paint or preserve as you wish. Top coat find something that tastes yukky :)

According to a recent article in thehorse.com newsletter, horses fed hay on the ground waste 20% of their hay. I do not know what you are paying for hay, but this hay feeder pays for itself in a very short time!
