Custom Built Solid Wood Horse Hay Feeders

Born out of a need for a feeder to accommodate the large 3'x3'x8' square bales of hay that were most economical to purchase, we designed a hay feeder and then discovered a need for something economical, efficient, and functional in the community.
Our hay feeders are built of solid pressure treated lumber and lag bolted together. The roof is made of galvanized steel, and can even be made in custom colors at no additional cost, and overhangs the actual feed bin by a foot in every direction for optimal weather protection. Every feeder features a net to cover hay to reduce waste - horses can't throw it out, and are forced to eat it slowly. Feeders can be made with drag points attached, or be set up to be moved by a tractor or bobcat with forks. All of our feeders can be made with lower sides to allow easy access for ponies or minis.

Please note: As of September 2017, we are currently only making the small 4' x 4' feeders due to our own space and time constraints. If you need a larger feeder and would like to be put on a waiting list for us to contact you when we are able to build them again, please contact us.

It is important to us to provide the optimal situation for horses to eat while containing hay and reducing waste. Our feeders include a net for this reason. The net keeps horses from wasting hay by pulling it out of the feeder, and slows their eating down which increases the longevity of every bale, up to 94% efficiency. Not only does the net improve the horse's health, but it helps to save money by reducing hay waste!
Horses quickly learn how to delicately pull the hay through the net, which keeps them busier longer.
We offer three sizes to accommodate every need:
Round Bale - interior size is 6' x 6' and leaves room to easily maneuver the bale and get it covered. This size also comfortably feeds 5-6 horses.
Big Bale - interior size is 3 1/2' x 8' to accommodate the large square bales. This size can feed 5-6 horses at once.
Mini Bale - Interior size is 4' x 4' and holds up to 4 small square bales. The mini bale feeder is perfect for the person that has 2-3 horses and needs an economical way to feed hay.
We are located in Maryland, north east of Baltimore about 45 minutes outside of the city. If you are within 50 miles, we are able to arrange for delivery. Beyond 50 miles, you will need to arrange for your own pickup of your feeder. They can be placed on a flat utility trailer easily, and do not have any issues with most normal heights on the road. We cannot ship hay feeders at this time.
