This is the same hay pole unit used at the AANHCP Field Headquarters, less the 6 ft. T-Post which you supply. It is a quick, efficient way to set hay (in nets) out on track in Paddock Paradise. Read about the benefits of feeding hay this way here.
Each fully assembled hay pole unit comes cut to size, drilled, fitted with hardware and is ready to use. All you need to do is set it over your 6 ft. t-post and attach a hay net. Your horses will love it!
One unit includes: 3/8 in. x 4 in. eye bolt with nut; 5 ft. x 1-1/2 in. Schedule 40 PVC pipe; 1-1/2 in. pipe cap, 5/16 in. x 3 in. Quick Link (standard); 5/16 in. x 3-1/4 in. Quick Link (extra long, which attaches to your hay net); and 3-1/4" Swivel Snap. You don't need to purchase separate hardware to hang your hay nets.
When ordering, you can save a little on boxing and shipping if your order the "packages" of 2, 3, and 4 units.
Order hay nets separately here.
Other items you will need or want to invest in for your Paddock Paradise:
Use 6 ft. T-Post (4 ft. and 5 ft t-post are too short for the hay poles), available at farm supplies, Home Depot and some hardware stores, for your hay poles. Note: the hay poles are designed to fit the Home Depot t-post; wider t-post may not fit.
Use a post driver to set t-posts (see image at left); this makes setting t-posts very easy -- also widely available where t-posts can be purchased.
Use a t-post puller for removing t-posts quickly and easily (see image at left). This is something you may find yourself doing on your Paddock Paradise track, should you want to change the location of a "feed station", re-position hay poles within a feed station, make other changes as you add new horses to your track, etc. Order one online here at Amazon.com.
I use a 3rd party ap to get the best possible shipping rate, however it is not integrated with this website due to technical limitations. But after you place your order, I always refund the difference between what you pay at checkout (the USPS retail rate) and what I will save you using my 3rd Party ap. This typically amounts to substantial savings for both U.S. domestic and international orders, especially when you order multiple and heavier products.
