Funder: Weld? I think I learned how to solder in grade 6. Seriously, though, I don't think any welding will be necessary. You'll see in the next week or so.

Brandy: We hang the nets so that the goats can reach them on their hind legs, about shoulder-high for the horses. Any lower and they would be goat traps for sure. I shudder to think of the trouble they could get themselves in to.

Good idea, using steel! And wow, that bale holder is awesome!

Do you have problems with the goats climbing up or pulling on them, or do they get enough from what the horses drop? Plus, they're small, I keep forgetting how tiny they really are! If the net is shoulder high to you and the horses, the goats probably can't even reach it!

I love making stuff and modifying it for my own uses, it's really satisfying - especially when you end up saving a huge percentage over that top-of-the-line store bought one that really doesn't suit!

Liked the old feeder too - what are you planning on changing about it? Do you or David know how to weld, or are you going to hire it out?

The Barb Wire just finished up a pretty good series on equine gastric ulcers. This post about prevention meshes nicely with your hay feeder, I think. Sort of the opposite end of the spectrum from your problem, but the same solution.

It's weird how we (in general) cause so many of our horses' problems by treating them like humans. The road to hell, etc.
