I am moving my horses to a new boarding facility on short notice due to a transfer at my job. The horses will be in dry lot turnouts (not ideal, but again, short notice), but I want my horses to have access to forage 24/7. I've fed round bales in a slow feed net before but the barn manager does not want the waste of a round bale. I've thought about getting a square bale (the 100+ lb. bales), putting it in a net, and setting it in a water trough or feeder, but I'm not sure how long that will last? Does anyone have any experience using this type of setup? I have 5 horses and self-care is expensive enough; if I pay for partial care for the barn to feed it'll be an extra $100 a horse so I'm definitely trying to avoid that additional cost. Plus they would only feed twice a day and I don't want my horses without feed for a majority of the time. Been there, got the ulcers. No thanks! Ideally, I'm trying to find a setup that will last them 1-2 days, as I will check on them at least every other day if not daily since they'll be about 20 minutes away and I travel for work. So I want to play it safe and have more than enough. They're on slow feed round bales now so nets are not a new concept.
