It seems that even my biggest dog food holder wasn’t big enough for this customer. My previous large holder was 2-3 quart dishes. This has 2-5 quart dishes. It’s 34”W x 13”T x 14” D. I did not ask what kind of horse they were feeding.

Thanks for looking

Maybe they’ve got a Lab ! Our Lab is always eating or thinking about eating . . . And she’ll eat a lot !

Not a great dane, my feeder is alot higher about two feet, but I am getting ready to build a new one as the first was adjustable as he grew and he is now 2 years old.

And he can eat almost 10 cups a day.

To give you an idea, he can drink out of the bathroom vanity with little effort

This looks really nice, Monte. Love that beetle kill pine. Can I ask how you fastened the legs to the top?

Friend of ours has a miniature horse that would really be able to use something like this. Thanks for posting.

Looks great! Love the wood you used! Hopefully you won’t need to build a trough stand for when this puppy grow ups. :)

Ill 2nd the lab comment, nothin but hoovers. Our will eat just about anything, ive seen her clear a plate of sushi including the wasabi, and im pretty sure she gets more water on the floor than in her mouth.

Nice work there Monte .. you’re churnin em out!
