Tired of having the animals tear up, destroy, move their feed trough?

Tired of not being able to move a feeder by yourself, or in the mud, or cost hundreds of dollars just to last a couple of years?

I was, so my husband starting making these feeders and they are awesome! 

These feeders are made for lightweight portability (fit in a pickup bed), yet are durable and stout enough to stay put.  

 And, they are really safe, I don't have to worry about having an animal get hurt.

Feed both hay & grain in.  Great for creep feeding young livestock,  multiple animals can share out of, or use as a single feeder.
Keeps feed off the ground & from being wasted.

Constructed of:
Steel tubing box & pallet frame that allows drainage in winter, & lightweight portability, but has the toughness so  livestock can’t move, tip over, or damage like normal feeders.

Poly trough lining is durable & thick with tapered drain allows rain to escape to keep trough empty in the winter

 Heavy duty easy swing valve located on the bottom middle of unit allows easy draining, or close to use as a water trough, it’s that simple.

When used as a water trough, holds around 225gallons on the bigger units.

Made to be used by all species: horse, sheep, cattle, goats: customized to whatever size is needed depending on the species of animal.

Inside diameter of all size troughs is 38" x 46"

All troughs with valves come with a 6" bottom metal pallet frame



Troughs come in varied heights & rails before we modify, that is why there is a 3" to 5" variance in height measurements on similar troughs. Heights are appx.

For size reference, all horses shown in pictures are Quarter Horses.

Horse Feeders / Waterers

 Standard size horse feeder (35" to 45" tall) fits the average size horse, yearling & older. Feeds anywhere from 1 (dominant horse) to 4 (non-dominant) horses, all depends on the herd hierarchy.


For mid-size ponies or weanlings, we recommend the round tub feeder (pictured further below on this page)
( 28" to 33" tall) to allow easier feeding with their shorter height.

 For mini's, can customize smaller, recommend the
 2 rail (18" to 25").

For Creep feeding or Salt Block stations, recommend the lowest height available
(12" to 15")
