My husband found an old dryer on the side of the road and decided to re-purpose it. The dryer door and frame he used as a hay hatch in our small barn hay mow. Below the hay hole is the drum from the dryer which he mounted on a wooden frame. No holes in the floor for kids to fall through, no place on the feeder for the horse to catch herself or wear her mane off. The dryer drum of course has all of the natural holes in it to vent and let dust, chaf, and water go through. Genius!
