Stall Feeder For Horse
Feeding apparatus that mounts into a horse stall so that hay can be loaded from outside the stall through a door and the horse can eat by pulling the hay through the feeder bars. Feeder also swings open into the stall to allow for cleaning out as required. There are several manufacturers that have similar products on the market, but most are for integration into their specific stall setups. We constructed our stalls out of lumber that has been left in the barn when we purchased our property. We then fabricated two of these custom stall feeders out of used steel and 3/4" pipe. They work really well and keep the animals from wasting so much hay.
