CHECK IT OUT!
Above pic you are looking from the big pasture into the middle pasture. Before today Carb and the donkeys had access to both. At night I close that gate to the left.
So I decided that the plan was to keep Carb in the middle and let the little boys come and go in both. So a 20' pvc pipe and some brackets went up. This above pic their first approach to the barrier bar.
Now Pedro is still reluctant to go under, even days later. I wish I had the video on the phone on because Pistol, even though he could have walked under, got on his knees and did the limbo. I was laughing so hard I spooked Badger.
So here are the mats, 4 of them.
I drilled a hole in the center, put an eye bolt with big washers on either side and then a heavy duty carabiner.
Then hook the carabiner to the middle of side of the hay bay.
I left this one bag out for a day or two so they could get used to it. When I went out to feed last night I found it off the mat and.......
Since Emma wasn't letting Ramsey near the hay bags I sent a while back DD graciously sent them back for the boys to use.
As a note Carb was appearing to have a problem seeing the bar so I painted it for him.
So this morning was our first meal. Each bag has 3 pounds of timothy hay. This is Pistol.
We will have to see how much hay they go through> I would like to leave out 24/7 and hear they will soon realize the bags will always have hay and not snarf it all up.
