SOme thing to feed with???

Postby Brute 23 » Wed Nov 28, 2007 1:19 pm

I am looking for some thing to feed with,,, like a wheelbarrow.

I have seen some around like this

We used to feed dogs out of a little trailer pulled by a golf cart. The pens were pretty scattered so there was plenty room to maneuver. Wouldn't work very well in a barn or other close quarters.

Tractor Supply sells a little small wagon, hand pulled, it is bigger than "a lil red wagon" a full bale of hay will fit in it. It's real handy to put your buckets of feed in, and hay for all your horses and just pull it along to each stall...

Or if your feedin a bunch of horses...all the same feed, just put the feed sack in the wagon, along with a scoop and off you go.

Are you talking about hay or grain, or both? If hay, I just put the bales on a pallet outside the corral/run (a big bale is tarped, but small bales are put out 2 or 3 at a time, and are fed to fast to bother with tarping them), and I use 5-quart buckets filled and then stacked in each other. The rounds are made feeding hay first, then 'feed central' is hit, the buckets are filled, and anything getting grain is then fed. I don't know if this will work for you, but that is how I do it.

Women and cats are going to do what they want, men and dogs would be wise to accept this.

Thanks every one.

I am kind of leaning towards some thing like this from TSC.

We have 7 horses at the place that all kind of have there own little traps. THey each have their own bucket and get x amount of scoops per day and a flake of hay. It kind of adds up and makes for alot of trips by hand. With one of theses they can load all the buckets up and hay and do it all at once.
