We bought this as a baby feeder but now 17 yrs later our gelding still uses it. Love that the feeder is off the ground. No stepping or pooping in it. Wish it was made in a little bigger size just for adult horses.
This looks like such a great idea, I really wanted it to work. I couldn't get the bars spaced so that the foal could get in but her food obsessed dam could not. And my yearling draft just bent the bars and knocked the feeder out of the wall to get whatever was left behind. Brute force wins.
Very Tough! Our babies eat whenever they want, the other horses try, but eventually give up! The only problem we've had is the rubber stopper in the bottom kept comming out. We replaced it with a bolt. LOVE IT!!!
I have purchased two of these foal feeders and both mares broke these in a few minutes! The metal bars are set in plastic slots which are easily broken as the mare pushes on the bars. Also, the plastic rim can be pulled off in no time by a hungry mare! Don't waste your money.
