We are selling our complete setup, all our equipment & supplies for horses. It includes everything needed for starting out!
My favorite item is the Farnam automatic grain feeder auger. Much more information is below.
There are two small black galvanized
automatic watering bowls for summer that hook to a garden hose. There is a video clip of one of them filling up below.
Also 3 composite water tanks with one thru the wall water heater for winter.... (read more)
Also included are 3 custom made hay feeders made from a round hay feeder disassembled and set on edge with tarps overtop, wood in the front and back and water pipe across the front so the horse can't walk on the hay and it stays dry inside the feeders. Pictures of those are above. They Really save on wasted hay!!
Included is metal fence posts, wire, insulators and an electric fencer to electrify the wire which would need to be taken down.
We also have a Weaver Synthetic Turquoise Ostrich and Black saddle and a pink nylon bridle set. Wormers, lunge whip, riding crop, shampoo and conditioner, brushes and much, much, more!!
The automatic auger feeder made by Farnam can be set for different times of feedings and amount to feed grain to a horse automatically. It is made of metal rather than plastic like the newer ones and is much more rugged and well made. This prevents wasted food. Big 50 pound capacity. Has a 24 hour perpetual timer that automatically dispenses from 1/2 to 4 pounds of feed per serving at times and frequency you choose every day without resetting. Great for horses that need supplements or medications timed out throughout the day. Saves worry & your valuable time! Food will be dispensed automatically day after day at times and the amount chosen. Once set, the feeder will dispense each day at the same times until settings are changed. Which is simple to do with the dials protected along the side with a metal cover to prevent tampering. The timer is easy to replace with any automatic timer that plugs into the wall like the ones used for automatic lights to turn on and off! Wet molasses feeds are not recommended as they can make the interior sticky and not work as efficiently. This has been a wonderful piece of equipment for us when we can't get home to feed or we're on vacation, we know our horse will always get it's grain! (There is more information copied from the website about the automatic feeder below).
We made some short clips of it turning on automatically and dispensing for different lengths of time to give the animal more or less feed per feeding. It does take 10 or 15 seconds for the feeder to engage in the videos.

Information from the Farnam Website about the Automatic Feeder Model 237401:
The feeder holds 25 gallons of whole grain mixed feed or pellets. You set the self-contained timer or amount to be released. (1-15 pounds) and how many times per day (1-12) that you want the horse to eat.
SAVES YOU TIME, MONEY AND FEED -- PLUS IT'S HEALTHIER FOR YOUR HORSES.
Farnam Automatic Feeder helps your horse re-establish his natural feeding pattern of eating smaller amounts more frequently during the day. Actually increased amount of nutrient digested while reducing the total amount of feed eaten. Saves you money by preventing overfeeding.
REDUCE CHANCE OF COLIC
Ask any vet = the number one killer of horses is colic, and a major cause of colic is overfeeding. Horses developed their natural feeding patterns over several thousands of years. Normally, they will lightly graze about 6 times during the day. But when confined to a stall and fed a full day's ration in one feeding, a horse's digestive system can't break down and absorb the feed fast enough - especially if it is a concentrated feed. The digestive tract can become clogged causing excessive gas, then colic develops.
FEED YOUR HORSE NATURALLY
With Farnam's Automatic Feeder you can establish a feeding program more in line with a horse's feeding habits. Instead of overloading his digestive system with large feedings, you can set the feeder to dispense much smaller portions many more times during the day.
FARNAM'S AUTOMATIC FEEDER SAVES YOU MONEY
With more frequent feedings, your horse's digestive system will function much more efficiently. Plus, you can reduce the total amount that you feed each horse. With today's high cost of feed, you can save a lot of money by preventing the waste of overfeeding - and reduce the chance of colic at the same time. Plus, with Farnam's Automatic Feeder, you eliminate expensive spillage and wasted grain that is so typical with feeding operations.
AUTOMATIC FEEDER SAVES YOU TIME
With this feeder, you set the amount of feed you want released each feeding. You set the number and time of feedings each day - from 1 to 12. Fill the hopper about once a week and forget about feeding chores for the rest of the week. Big capacity hopper holds 25 gallons of feed. In the early morning while you sleep, the Automatic Feeder feeds your horses. When you want to remain that extra day in the mountains or at the beach, don't worry about time. The Automatic Feeder is on duty measuring out exact quantities of whole grain, mixed feed or pellets 24 hours a day, day after day. Even when you are at home, your automatic Feeder saves you trip after trip to the barn - hours of valuable time each week.
HOW THE AUTOMATIC FEEDER WORKS
The heart of the Automatic Feeder is a motor driven paddle shaft. When the clock on the timer reaches the proper time, it turns the unit on causing the shaft to rotate and release feed down the feed chute. Each feeder has a control that determines the number of seconds the feeder operates at any one feeding, thus measuring the amount of feed dispensed. Amount is adjustable from 1 to 15 pounds. Self-contained timer has locking cover (lock not included). The feeder mounts in the stall. When the timer trips, the feeder will drop feed directly into your grain feeder (not included). Entire feeding system is horse proof and tamper proof. Complete, mounting and wiring instructions are below.
GALVANIZED STEEL THROUGHOUT
For rust-free, worry-free maintenance.
Knowing that day by day, week after week, you are saving money on feed and labor, saving valuable time, plus improving your horses' health with Farnam's Automatic Feeder.
INSTALLATION OF THE STALL FEEDER:
1. Electrical circuits to the feeder must be well grounded, i.e. a third wire (green) should go to positive ground such as a deep water line or a 6' copper rod.
2. The electrical terminal box contains 4 wires. If one master clock is used to control several feeders, the black wire is used for that circuit. To use the option of off-on-testing or manual feeding, a hot circuit should be run to the red wire.
3. Mount the feeder by use of the drilled holes in the back of the case. It should be positioned above the trough so as to receive the feed being discharged from the left side center. The discharge should be several inches above the trough.
4. Put easy flowing feed in the feeder.
5. Set the 24 hour clock-timer for the desired times of feedings.
6. Calibrate for your feed. 10 seconds feeds approximately a quart. Make a trial run and adjust to meet your requirements.
7. Rotate the 24 hour clock-timer clockwise so that the time of day or current time is even with the pointer on the upper side of clock face.
There are so many extras, there are too many to list.
