my horse has allergies and he likes to eat the leaves from the ground when I feed in the other feeder. now the leaves will be at the bottom and he has to eat from top down instead of throwing hay out of the feeder.

Have already purchased one, and it seems to work great, although there is an issue with the holes for the bolts being out of alignment. Hopefully that doesn't affect the durability as we had to lave that bolt out. Seems to be a manufacturing issue as I have read about it in other reviews.

Have added a new horse to our barn of 3 horses which all have this feeder ... added one more. Love them.
Dee P on May 16, 2018
I have been using 2 of these feeders for several years and they have paid for themselves in saved hay costs. The horses eat at a natural angle and waste very little. The assembly holes had to be drilled out for alignment and the grate openings are too big for a true slow feeder. They are durable plastic and clean easily for storage. I have grown to love these feeders.
Jill G on Feb 13, 2018
I have one, but have 3 horses I'm going to only using this as appose to slow feed hay nets, easier to keep in dry area and easier to fill and less time filling and less often.
CHRIS D on Feb 12, 2018
I bought two of these for my horses and donkeys to cut down on wasted hay. It has to be one of the best purchases I have ever made. They have held up for several years so far without a problem and have greatly reduced the amount of hay that goes to waste. I highly recommend these slow feeders!

I think My wife will like it

Keeps all the wasted hay from being lost.
M B on May 1, 2017
I have been looking at these hay feeders for while. I like the idea of wasting less hay, having the horses not eating directly off the ground but at ground level and eating the hay more slowly which is better for their digestive tracts.
Lynette O on Feb 2, 2017
I wanted heavy hay feeders and I wanted to try these after researching them. Love them.
Balinda W on Jan 8, 2017
It allows the horse to eat with a more natural head position and I was looking for a feeder that would reduce waste and be easy to fill.

keep my horse from eating off the ground [prevent sand ingestion and thus colic]

to save feed on my horses and to slow them down
tania p on Jul 31, 2014
My neighbor bought one recently and really liked it. It's noisy though. I will have to secure it in the stall so they don't push it around like his horses are doing. Seems like it might save me time and money.
Elaine J on Apr 19, 2014
I chose this item hoping to save hay and money from wated hay
JANICE K on Mar 18, 2014
It reduces hay costs because the horses don't scatter hay all over the stall. It stays contained in the slow feeder box. It also saves time because it is easier to place a half of a bale in it every 2-3 days. And, my horse is happier and healthier having availability of hay 24/7.

My husband And I were thinking about purchasing a couple of the high country slow feeders for our horses But we are wondering as the horse eats the hay down does the rack also slide down so they can get to the last part of their hay? Thank you, Mandie
Mandie on Dec 28, 2014
BEST ANSWER: After you fill it with your desired amount of hay, there is a slot cut out at the top of the feeder that you slide the grate through. The grate is smaller in diameter than the feeder, allowing it to fall down until it hits the hay. It is quite heavy and continues to go down as the hay gets eaten. We never fill it up with hay (usually just 2 or 3 leaves at a time) and our gelding gets every last bite. When finished, the grate is just resting on the bottom of the feeder. I would reccomend one! It slows him down some and allows for no waste.
I live in N MI. In the winter, will the metal grates be tood cold for the horses to put their lips on?
PK H on Jul 30, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I took the grates out when it was very cold. The larger problem with the cold is the plastic becomes more brittle and my draft horses would paw them when empty. All three of the ones I bought have become broken in places due to the cold combined with pawing. The spaces on the grates is fine for smaller horses but narrow for the drafts. I had wooden boxes made the same size and use those now. I still use the grates but had them slightly modify to make the openings larger.
Can you order an extra grate?
A shopper on May 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I'm sorry, we do not carry extra parts for this item. I would recommend contacting High Country to see if they can accommodate you, (208) 455-8611.
How can you secure this to a wall or post?
A shopper on Jan 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I don't have mine bolted to a wall or post. It is just in their stalls. I love the feeders. I have 5 feeders and they work great with all my horses except for one. He steps on the metal grade and bends it so I can't use the feeder for that one horse. Other than that the feeders are great and they move them a little bit but not much.
I also need to know if there's any way to bolt this to the ground or a post. We commonly get 60+ MPH winds, plus my horse is just destructive, so it would need to be secured in place. Can that be done?
Jodi C on Mar 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This slow feeder has been one of the best purchases I've ever made. I have two of them and use them to feed 2 miniature horses and 6 donkeys. Both of my slow feeders are inside the loafing shed to keep them out of the rain. It weighs about 55 lbs and the horses/donkeys can only push the feeders around when they're empty of hay. If you needed to bolt the feeder to a post, I guess you would have to drill some holes in the end of the feeder, but you would have to make sure not to impede the movement of the metal grate that sits on top of the hay. The slit that you see in the photo near the bottom of the feeder is only on the front of the feeder. The long slit at the top is where you remove the grate when you refill the feeder with hay, so you wouldn't want to block access to that.
Is it practical to use in rainy weather?
Marlene B on Jul 24, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I really like this slow feeder. There is an opening on the side of the bottom which lets the water run out in the rain. You may have to pull out some of the wet hay on the very bottom, but it has never been very much and certainly easy to do. Briefly, I have never had any issues with rain and this feeder.
Does the grate slide down as the hay is eaten, or does it have to be manually pushed down?
Brittni S on Aug 17, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The grate is pretty heavy, and it holds the hay down just via gravity. You don't need to push it down, as there is just enough space tolerance for it to stay down easily on its own.
How much hay will it hold?
Donna L on Dec 7, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I can get an average bale of hay into the feeder, but I have to break up the flakes and tuck some of them into the sides on the top. As the horse pulls the hay out, the grate tends to bend, so it can be a little hard to get the out at times out to load more hay into the feeder. The grate "holes" are a little large, so the horses don't have to work very hard to get the hay out. I've been thinking I might place another grate with smailler holes in it to slow them down more. Good Luck!
Is the grate made of steel or nylon?
A shopper on Aug 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The grate is made of some sort of metal that has been wrapped with a coating (paint or ?) It is tough. It sat out all winter in the snow and cold and looks great. My horse has stepped on it when it was low and it did not bend. Best to keep the hay even in the feeder so that it does not tilt. The hay should go down with the hay in an even plane.
Is it a solid box with a solid bottom or is the bottom open?
A shopper on Jan 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: there is a bottom piece that is separate. we did have problems with it sliding off when the hay got low. with a small alteration we made it One complete piece and are very happy with it. the smaller size feeder comes as one complete piece. We have both the small and large sizes. the small come with a nylon like web on a frame for the grate and the large has the metal grate .. FYI .. we live in the south and just experienced our first freeze and i will say the metal bars got So cold my one gelding actually have freezer burn from trying to get hay out. after the first night of realization we took the grate out and they are still out .. until this abnormal (for us) freeze ends .. hope this helps! Peace ..
Hi, can anyone tell me if it makes much noise? Does the metal clank against the plastic when they pull the hay out? Thanks
Michaela D on Dec 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The metal does not clank against the plastic but I would not recommend this product. I bought three. The horses bend the grate by sticking their foot onto it to make it easier to get the hay out. Then it is impossible to pull the grate out without a lever. I am very unhappy with this product, especially for the price. I would stick to a net in the future. It was difficult to assemble as well and some of the required hardware did not arrive with the order. We had to redrill the holes for the screws. All in all, not worth the money or headache.
does hay get wet I. rain?
A shopper on Feb 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: sure, if it's used outside/uncovered. but not nearly as much as if the hay were loose. we really like ours - esp. since we have "hay flippers" who wasted so much. slows them down, too. note, there are drain holes in the bottom. a great product and worth the $ in saved hay!
Will this work for 2 horses pastured together, or is it too small for my bossy old mare to share with her younger gelding?
SUSAN L on Nov 12, 2013
BEST ANSWER: It depends on how bossy she is! If she chases him away from a pile of hay on the ground, she will do the same with the feeder. It is a good size, but a horse can easily reach over to the other side and bite another horse feeding from it. We have two just because we knew there would be moments when one of ours would not share. Most of the time they are fine side by side or across from each other, but our gelding does on some days decide he will push our mare away. We do LOVE the feeder. Very safe, easy to use, easy to clean and it should last us for many years. The price might deter you, but it will pay you back since you won't be wasting hay.
purchased feeder and love it but horse stepped om grate and bent it how much does a new grate cost?
A shopper on Aug 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: not sure that's never happened to me, however, i will tell you they make the nylon slow feed net for the big feeder now and if i had to replace mine i would replace with the nylon one as mine (i've had for 2-3 years and kept under cover) has rusted and the paint came off. i definitely don't think it was good for my horses (i only use the large feeder for one older mare without the grate as she doesn't need the slow feed). i'd call the company directly or get someone from Stateline to call. hope this helps ... Peace
If I were to order 6 of these feeders when is the soonest you could ship them to Stephenville, TX?
shelbs1313 on Aug 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I would call Stateline customer Support for this question. Congrats on the decision to get these! I ordered 2 (separate orders), first one took about 2 weeks 2nd one about a month... But absolutely the BEST thing I ever bought for my horses!
What size are the screws? I have lost 2 and need to replace them. I guess I could take it apart, but would rather not...help
Michele O on Mar 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I will have to check mine and get back to you ok?

Is there an option to purchase the webbed grate instead of the metal one?
Kendra W on Jul 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: i read somewhere (since my purchase) there was ... can't remember where, but i can tell you i would Definitely do it ... maybe call the company ... i don't even use the grate anymore as it rusted and i just don't feel good about it , plus even if i didn't, it's hard on their teeth .. i didn't realize that either until my older mare (28) started having teeth problems (back teeth) and we could see the ware on the front teeth :( hope this helps ..
The mare sticks her foot in the box and bends the grate. Any solutions out there?
Pete J on Jan 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We have a 16.3 horse that put his foot in and would stand in the feeder .. so we raised it up and put cinder blocks under the feeder so it was too tall for him to get his foot back in ., we did secure the feeder with straps to the stall bars so he would not pull it away. But raising the feeder up higher solved our problem.
If the weight of the item is 55lbs, why is the shipping weight 98lbs, 40+ pounds more?
A shopper on Nov 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Shipping weight is calculated by actual weight and dimensional weight.
