As I wrote earlier, Tristan is going to get some different turnout options this winter to hopefully encourage him to move around more. One of those options may be to turn out in the jump ring. It’s not electrified, but he’s pretty good with fences.
If that does come to pass, I want to work on a hay feeder solution for him so we’re not scattering hay in the jump ring.
So: I’m doing some investigating and experimenting, and would appreciate any suggestions anyone has.
Here’s what I am looking for:
- something DIY; I’m hoping for something I can build and then tweak myself
- will pull down a grate/bag/net as the hay is eaten down (so it’s never loose)
- small-ish; I don’t need a full giant thing, just something to hold 2-3 flakes at a time
- needs to be able to live outside during a Vermont winter
Any ideas or pointing me toward tutorials are welcome!
