The HayHut is an innovative horse hay feeder. This enclosed plastic-molded feeder is just what is needed in a wet climate. By enclosing the hay within its 230 pound medium density polyethylene shell, it is protected from inclement weather and the ravages of horses that like to defecate on hay and use it as bedding. The wastage that can occur can be in excess of one third of a round roll and is almost totally eliminated by the HayHut. Specifically designed to accommodate large round bales, it will also handle stacked conventional bales with ease. The assembled HayHut unit easily tips to its side for bale placement and is easily tipped upright. One person can easily move and/or tip the HayHut for placing the hay. It has eight cutout openings. Horse owners are reporting less hay loss and being able to replace their bales in almost half the amount of time that they would with an open round feeder.
“We became distributors of HayHuts because we saw the importance of having free feed hay for our mini donkeys,” remarks Craig Johnson, owner. “Our customers are reporting that their hay is not only being protected from the horse’s thrashing, but from the elements as well.”
