QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
Are You Tired Of Wasted Hay In The Pasture?
The people at Bale Barns, LLC are horse people and understand all the frustrations and expense of trying to feed horses responsibly and reliably! We’ve all seen it. Hay scattered and strewn all around the feeder— tramped in mud, urine, or worse! With the cost of hay this is an unhappy sight to say the least. If you live in a wet or damp climate, now the fear of “mold” becomes an issue- and that can mean colic, illness, or vet bills.
Would You Like To Enjoy The Benefits That A Slow Feeder Has To Offer & Protect Your Hay At The Same Time?
Horses all benefit from frequent, small meals. It is better for digestion and helps to support normalized digestion which is critical to “easy keepers”. A slow feeding net not only prevents horses from dragging out large chunks of hay onto the ground where it can be trampled and soiled, but a good hay net helps your horses eat more methodically with smaller bites over a long period of time. This is great for digestion, physical, and even mental health— after all, nothing makes horses happier than eating!
So What Makes Bale Barns So Superior to Competitors?
* More Durable - Bale Barns are made of 100% virgin LLDPE. A specialized polyethylene with UV inhibitor - LLDPE was chosen to ensure many years of flexibility without cracking.
* Cooler Inside During Hot Temperatures - Basic thermodynamics supports our findings: darker colors absorb more heat than lighter colors.
*Wider Stance - Creates more stability in High Wind Areas. No need for anchors. Easily fits over Any Large Round, Large Square or Multiple small bales. Base remains wide open. No sagging when tipping.
* Solid One Piece Construction - Eliminates the twisting and cracking problems as well as the loose and missing bolts common with other 2 piece models. *TAPERED SIDES- Hamper physical contact from stock, eliminating damage to windows and roofs.
How Long Can I Expect My Bale Barn To Last?
The original Bale Barn prototype built in 2000 is still in daily use. Bale Barns have evolved over the past 16 years to address issues such as easier shipping and the integrated slow feed net. A customer should expect the Bale Barn to provide at least ten years of daily use.
What Are Bale Barns Made Of?
Bale Barns are made of 100% virgin LLDPE. A specialized polyethylene with UV inhibitor LLDPE was chosen to ensure many years of flexibility -without cracking!
Why Does Bale Barns Use Virgin LLDPE Instead Of Recycled Plastic Like Our Competitor?
Bale Barns are made from 100% virgin material to ensure integrity of material, to maintain high quality and flexibility, and to allow for the light color of the Tumbleweed Tan. Recycled material has to be darker to cover the variations in the recycled products and also has to be thicker to allow for variations due to impurities in recycled material.
Is True That Bale Barn Stays MUCH Cooler Than Our Darker Competitor?
YES! Basic thermodynamics supports our findings: darker colors absorb more heat than lighter colors. Our research on temperature difference demonstrated that the green covers were on average 30 to 50 degrees hotter than our Tumbleweed Tan Bale Barn. A cooler temperature provides a more pleasant equine experience and extends the life of the hay. (Hotter temperatures coupled with humidity increase the chances of mold.) Another advantage of a light color like Tumbleweed Tan is the extended longevity of the Bale Barn.
Does The Bale Barn Collapse When It Is On Its Side?
NO! The Bale Barn is designed with 2 reinforcement bands to help the Bale Barn maintain its shape.
