Horses > Feeding & Nutrition
I have also been looking for plans for a wood hay feeder to feed small square bales in for 4 head of horses. Would you know where I could find some plans.
Thank you for your time,
Feeding free choice minerals can make a lot of sense for some situations such as for horses on pasture that are not consuming very much grain to use as a carrier for the supplemental minerals. A 50/50 mix of dicalcium phosphate and trace mineralized salt, or a mixture of 25% calcium carbonate, 25% monosodium phosphate and 50% trace mineralized salt would be reasonable for free choice blends of minerals. You should expect that horses will eat 2-3 ounces per day, but they may eat more initially if they have been without supplemental minerals previously.
Wooden hay feeders tend not to last very long, so metal ones would be better in most situations. Following are some links for ideas that might work for you.
