Well, y'all. I finally took the video. Yet another episode of Liz's Barn Babbles lol
For those who aren't video lovers/can't watch due to connection issues see the screenshots below for details.
|Net in the IBC tote|
|Demonstrating size of net holes|
|Each container has a two anchors: cheap carabiner attached to paracord|
|The opposite anchor|
|One of the reasons we use these! To minimize waste and slow feeding times.|
|Ah, much better.|
|Paracord around each net cinched tight with a quick release knot and daisy chain to keep horses from fussing with it|
|Half IBC tote and Tartar hay basket|
|Full (almost) size IBC tote - same height as hay basket.|
I love this setup. It has worked very well for the horses and I. Their eating is slowed down greatly; this artificial system more closely mimics what they are designed to do in a natural environment and helps keep them healthy. It also GREATLY reduces hay waste, helping me get more bang for my buck!
If anyone has questions beyond what I covered, don't hesitate to reach out.
