HAYHUT rated 'EXCEPTIONAl' in scientific trial by Minnesota University
I am happy to report that I just received word from the Veterinarian in charge of the scientific trial of nine different horse hay feeders recently concluded by the University of Minnesota that they rated the Hayhut as 'Exceptional' with a loss rate of only 9%. Only two other feeders achieved this rating below 10% and one 'had issues' . The other was a specially made metal one at twice the cost of the Hayhut! So basically - WE are the Winner!

Busy Horse Snacker
I added a picture of the Busy Horse Snacker hay bag. It's tied closed at the top with a haystring to prevent anyone getting a hoof inside. I will try using it on the ground as a hay pillow this winter, but for now, I am hanging it low. So far, Jewel, Ally & Stella are not impressed. The size of the holes in the Snacker is 1.5" and doesn't really expand at all when it is stuffed full of hay.
It really does seem to be more of a toy than a feeder, at least for now. Something that might catch you by surprise is that the opening of the Snacker is not wide enough for a flake of hay to go in, even the narrow way. We've been stuffing it by the handful. Not the most convenient feeder to fill. The other Busy Horse hay bags are probably big enough to slide in a flake without tearing it apart first, but the hole size is a larger 2".
