After decades of frustration with using the inadequate feed bins on the market and other common DIY feed bins, we decided we had to do something about it. We were continually seeing feed being tipped and scooped out by the horses. We needed bigger, deeper and stronger paddock feeders
The only thing for us to do was to design our own!
We spent a lot of time perfecting these paddock feeders. Testing them out on our own horses before we were 100% happy with them. We gave them to our naughtiest horses who usually dig, scoop and tip their feed out. Additionally, we made sure they were suitable for our foals and young horses as they can sometimes find it difficult reaching into ground-level feed bins.
We found that our naughty diggers went to dig a couple of times to start with. However, they kept hitting their leg on the bin, so they stopped and just ate. Our food scoopers – you know, that scoop and flip it our with their muzzles – couldn’t do that as the sides were too high! We were happy with what we were seeing. Our foals and weanlings have no trouble reaching in and eating comfortably either.
Our paddock feeders have a massive 52L capacity. We’ve given them a wide base to make them harder to tip and they are made from long-lasting high molecular weight polyethylene. They are also made in Melbourne, something we know is important.
Of course we know horses are capable of anything and they will always find a way to make us say ‘WHY’? But we think our paddock feeders are unlike anything else on the market today. They have been designed by horse people for maximum paddock feeding frustration reduction!
