So I did a thing at the show. The vendor was back with the Porta-Grazers and maybe the heat got to me but anyway, I bought one. At the show, Remus dived into both the grass hay one and the alfalfa one. And munched while we talked. And seemed to like it.
I have it home now and results are middle of the road. I like it but Remus is eating from it only some of the time. And I find getting the pan out to fill it, is a BITCH. How do you guys that have one deal with it. It does not seem to make sense, you line up the tabs and pull up, then twist? Not intuitive. I literally almost sweated to death trying to get the pan out to fill it last night. Also it is heavier than it looks (I mean it is supposedly the travel version). Moving it from stall to stall is doable but it is awkward to move.
I am going to attempt to pull the hay apart a bit more to see if Remus will start using it more. I know there is a learning curve. And I know my horse is spoiled more than any other horse in the world. HA. I am sure once he get used to this I will like it more. I know in the winter I will definitely like it and I realize that it takes time for horses to get used to them. I have cut back on his food in the hay feeder to see if he will eat it but not too much yet. He loved it the first day. SMH
Have you ever bought a (higher priced) horse item and then been a bit disappointed with it?
I am off to NOLA for work (leaving tonight, back Friday). I am driving since I can’t stand having to fly north, west, or south to get 400 miles to NOLA (stupid Memphis airport has (very few) nonstop flights)! HA. Wish Mark luck with the animals. He is going to need it. Remus alone may or may not have a 2 page document on how to take care of him. I know I know I have issues! Happy Wednesday all!
