I admit that it makes more sense to create a blog page than to keep scattering new project information all over the wiki, so I'm giving it a try. Is it a proper blog? Probably not! This is a wiki site, not a blog thing. But it's tucked away in this small corner, so I hope it works out. If not, I'll remove it -- it's an experiment!
In fact, there seems to be plenty of room for other blogs about experiences with slow feeders or Paddock Paradise tracks, so feel free to add one of your own to the Blogs and Websites section.
Here's a photo of the HorsePlay brackets I promised the Pitchfork Princess. You can see that there is a space of just under 3.5 inches between the center of the spindle and the wall, so it would easily accomodate a 6-inch PVC pipe, as is. But by the time you get that and the end caps for it, and a hole saw if you don't already have one to drill nice round holes on the ends, you're probably close to the $35 that the HorsePlay toy costs.
I know that we're dealing with a question of needing more space for the hay cubes than their 6"x8" wall-mounted toy can provide. So I hope this gives you some ideas. Do you think it's worth trying to devise a bracket for the brackets to bring the spindle ends farther from the wall to make room for a bigger spinner (like a 5-gallon bucket for example)? I think that with such a large container, there wouldn't be much inconvenience from having a dowel run completely through it. These brackets don't have a hinge or other way to quickly remove the container, either, so it would still mean filling it up through the dispensing hole.
