We had this in Oklahoma. Bales last so much longer and the horses can't destroy it. Also prevents a lot of fighting or "guarding".

Love this idea.  My two Oberhaslis waste a ton of hay with their current feeder.  6/20/13:  Finally got it done.  Now to see how well it does. 7/8/2013: Seems to be working well.  There is still a bit of waste, after all they are goats, but no where near the amount I had before. 9/1/2013 - Need to make the holes smaller.  The goats figured out they could put their entire head in and began pulling out tons of .hay.  We took it down until they are older and now use a 1.5" Nibble Net.
