    The affordability and convenience of Round bale feeders for horses are being discussed greatly!

    I emailed Dura-bilt in early spring of 2012 to tell them about the Tombstone feeder as they call it. I bought it to save hay and had it about a month when one of my draft horse mares rolled by the feeder and got her rear left foot caught between the channel iron strap in the hoop. I couldn’t believe it as a draft horse has a big foot. Before I saw her she was stuck for quite some time. I had to cut her free with a hacksaw. From jerking on her foot to get out she tore up her stifle area very bad. Being with foal she then lost that. With the vet. and cost of my horse and foal I lost well over $3000.00. I sold the feeder immediately. Never heard back from Dura-bilt. I emailed Priefert thinking maybe they built them and they called me immediately concerned but it wasn’t theirs. Had to pay $150.00 to have her put down and hauled away in the Renerey truck. Fleet Farm still has them and everytime I walk past that area I think about it. You win some, you loose some.

      That’s awful, Les. I know there are some dangers with feeders–seems horses can figure out to hurt themselves in just about anything. Sorry about your mare.
