Re: RC: hay feeders

 feet on their side and are 5.5 feet across.  I spend $20 on
 saber saw blades (you will go thru them all - rubber is
 tough) and cut out the middle opening so it was bigger (top
 and bottom). I now have a hay feeder that won't hurt the
 horses, has drainage, lasts forever and holds 6 bales of
 hay. >>

Teddy, I'm sure this must be a less expensive way to go than building the 
wooden ones we have.  The person who originally sent the question had to deal 
with sand colic.  Do you put a bottom of some sort on your tire feeders to 
keep the dirt and sand under control?
