"haha yeah. I have one who is so clumsy yet somehow manages to calmly contort his body to slide between the 4 strand fence. Even when he gets slightly caught up, he just smoothly jiggles himself free. He gets through the fence in seconds. It is…"

Custom Horse Jumps

So in my spare time I make custom horse jumps. Mostly for myself and friends, but I made a little website in case anyone is interested in getting some. I have some basic models starting at $90 a pair and a bunch of other ones listed. Or I can build something based on any picture, drawing or idea you send me.Anyways, it would be great if you had chance to check out the website and let me know what you think. Thanks for your time…See More

Chris Valour replied to Ferrous's discussion Hay feeder woes. Any suggestions?
"well, if the feeder is broken, then it shouldn't be in use at all. It is unsafe. But, if your horse is the one that keeps breaking it, I wouldn't push that point too hard. You don't want to have to pay for a broken feeder. Anyways, I…"

"I read your post on the "other" forum but feel more comfortable responding on here. Personally I have never had any problems with a feeder but we haven't been using one in a while anyways. Our horses don't waste hay and eat every…"

That is an awesome photo... your goofy boy is so cute! I love his expression, and the camera angle is great. He sounds like quite the mischief maker!

The feeders have been repaired... we'll see how long it takes the beasts to destroy them again. The efficiency with which those horses can dismantle things makes me wonder if they have learned to wield power tools. If they have, I wish that they would get a job and support themselves. ;)

Hi again. We have spoken with the barn owner and we will continue to 'brainstorm' to try to figure things out. In the meantime the feeders will be repaired again, and we plan to get 'The Squirt' working more... maybe we'll tire him out too much to be interested in mischief. ;) HA! At least it'll get him out of the round bale more so that he doesn't end up looking like one! ;P

Our barn owner did have some good points about why the raised feeders that we suggested aren't ideal either, and we agree that the horses would destroy a bale buddy (especially my tarp killing lad). She tried not using a feeder, and the horses just tore at the bale to get the yummy chaff and made a bed out of the rest. We have had a few other suggestions including the flexible snow fencing but I'm not sure that any would stand up to this herd... they are smart enough and strong enough to get what they want, whatever is standing in their way. At least the current feeder doesn't have any bits that they could accidentally ingest.

I marvel at the people I know with 'cooperative' show horses that will stay in a stall all day (not that I want that), won't shred blankets, don't 'climb' apple trees, and don't hop into feeders. Ah well, I do appreciate my lad's clever brain and inquisitive nature when we are working... usually. ;)

Hi! I just saw the photo that you posted of your run in shed - wow, very nice! I took a peek at your website too... what a great selection of jumps. :) When I eventually have a farm of my own I'd love to get one of your jump packages... of course that is a bit down the road. Step 1, find farm (we-e-ell, step 1, save down payment). ;)
