Covered Round Bale Feeders made of some kind of Plastic/Poly

Does anyone know where I can get one of these? Are they any good and how much.

Thanks for your response paige5785. No it is not like that. It is completley enclosed apart from where the horses head goes through to eat the hay. The idea is to keep the rain, etc., off of the hay.

It is something like this one. The only thing is these people have not advertised a Web site so I can't get any more info unless I phone. I shouldn't think they would be around today and I'm like most people, I want to look see NOW!!

There is a hay farm here that sells them along with the round bales. It doesn't look hard to build, as its made out of wood.

Luvpaints, I can't seem to open that link. I've tried a number of times.

I was looking for plastic, not wood though. Thanks anyways.

Someone makes a bale cover that is a large bag with a drawstring opening or so it appears so in pics I've seen.

I appreciate everyone's help but we still haven't come up with the one I'm looking for.

Ferronsgranny, I like what you found, but too too expensive.

Slim Pikkens. I've seen this one but it is not enclosed completely. There should only be areas for the horses head to go into for eating.

I dont' know why my picture of what I want isn't comming up. I had this problem before. I did check to see if I chose the right link from Photobucket, as I understand we need to use the IMG., but it is not working for me.

You were missing the first bracket around IMG. It's supposed to look like this [IMG]code[/IMG].
