Mower Cart Helps Feed Grain To Horses
Watching his wife carry feed back and forth to 16 boarded horses got Richard Ahearn thinking of an easier way. He stripped the motor off a salvaged lawn mower and replaced it with a plastic tote.
  “The tote was big enough to hold about 100 lbs. of grain,” says Ahearn. “Grain scoops fit in the corners to hold any needed supplements. Now she can make a single pass down the stable alley with everything she needs.”
  Ahearn bolted the tote in place. So far there have been no problems, unlike commercial carts he has tried in the past.
  “A lot of the grain carts you buy have wheels that are too small and parts that break off,” says Ahearn. “If this lawn mower breaks down, I’ll got to the dump and get another one.”
