Small Mesh Hay Bag Holder - The Bag Buddy
I started using the small mesh hay nets several months ago, we live in Florida and quality pasture is hard to maintain due to lack of rain and soil quality, these bags are great! I loved them, but found filling them to be a chore. My husband designed a " Bag Buddy" which will fit over any 2"x 4-6-8 whatever, or I use it no the bed of my golf cart to hold open the hay bags as you fill them. This has saved me tons of time and trouble filling my bags. He also designed a "Stall Bag Buddy" which we are getting a Patent on and will be an our website for sale soon! I also am making slow feed bags out of very high quality netting , So please check out our wesite at TNTCustomMetalWorks.com and let me know what you think...

Does anyone understand the challenges and needs of a horse pastured on pumus stone and native grass?
All Weather enclosed hay feeders - Hayhuts
I guess it was around the beginning of last year that tangled manes invited me to discuss these types of hay feeders.
Well I have been pretty busy since then with the production and distribution of these units and now have a number of dealers in place around the country.
Soon to be advertised on RFD -TV and featured in Farm Show magazine, I expect that I will be even busier but thought I would take this brief holiday lull in my activity to discuss the product with fellow members. This is a brief video clip of it in operation - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mBtdiP5vQ7g .
We have 18 horses at our 20 acre breeding farm and so pasture is at a premium. Despite this 'stocking ratio' we still have the greenest ,luscius pastures of all around us by the use of our Hayhuts. They have allowed us to reduce our round roll consumption from 150 to 110 rolls per year which amounts to a saving of almost $3000 in hay costs alone and, of course, an equally significant amount of savings in labor costs. I will be very happy to answer any questions members might have and will look to publish some photos. - Yeah! I think I just succeeded in posting an album ( albeit with out of sequence photos so members will have to use their imagination or go to the website -www.hayhuts.com.

grid size for hard sided slow feeders
We are having trouble with the grid size for our hard sided slow feeder. We tried 2" x 2", and the horses couldn't get the hay. We then took out every other rod so the openings were 2" x 4", and they still can't get the hay. Any advice on the size? 3" x 3", 2" x 6"? The grids are expensive so we want to get a good idea it will work before purchasing another one.
