We no longer feed unlimited hay and sold these hay racks but I left the photo up to show you how we use to keep the hay dry for the donkeys. Now we give them baled hay carefully measured out for each pasture according to the donkeys' needs in each pasture.

Hay Feeder with Rack underneath...this one has a place
to build a roof...that is on our list of things to do!

We have sold all of our hayracks that hold big bales
of hay because we no longer feed the big bales of hay.

Hay feeder with insert removed...it was too dangerous!

Hay feeder insert added to new stall w/chains...works great!
