Category: Barn and Stable Misc
Purchase: From Riding Warehouse; about $250
Likes: It would slow the horse down while eating, certainly. The drain plug feature is nice if you have to soak your hay. It might be a fun toy to entertain the playful horse
Dislikes: This one, for me, falls squarely into the "Are you sh---ing me?" category. Folks, it's a heavy plastic trash can with an inserted pan with holes. I cannot see my horse sticking his head down in this, even if hay is involved. It is nice to have a drain in the bottom for soaking hay, but, if the plan is to have this out in a paddock, that's a long way to drag a hose. If the plan is to fill the porta grazer with hay and water at the barn, then drain it, then drag it out to the paddock, well, it's heavy for that. Much easier to use haynets or hay pillows in that situation.
Quality: It is an excellently constructed trash can. Very heavy. Smooth plastic. The pan appears kind of brittle, though, and I expect my horse might break it rather quickly, and then no doubt would slice himself on the sharp edges of the broken plastic. I'm not sure how the plastic would hold up to freezing temperatures, or whether it would get very hot in very hot summer weather.
Summary: Again, "Are you sh---ing me?" For $250? I had hoped that in person it would be more than the sum of its parts, but, it really is just a heavy plastic trash can with a pan with holes in it. So, you could take a heavy rectangular feeding trough, fill it with hay, and put a few large rocks in to slow the horse down, and you'd have close to the same thing. I would have tried it, just to see if it entertained pony man to have this to roll around his drylot, but at $250, it's too expensive for that.
Usefulness Rating: 3.6 out of 5.
