Description: Hay feeders are blocks including Slow feeders and Paddock feeders which can hold SWEM Bales.
These feeders do not work with Minecraft hay bales.
Slow Feeders come in 16 Minecraft colors.
A Slow Feeder is crafted with 5 Sticks, 3 Dried Kelp and 1 Dye of a corresponding color.
Paddock Feeders come in a 1 (whitewash) color.
A Paddock Feeders is crafted with 2 Planks (any) and either 2 Iron Bars or 2 Friendly Bars (any).
Slow feeders can hold one bale of Quality, Alfalfa or Timothy types. Right-click a slow feeder with a bale or bale slab to place it inside the feeder. If using a bale slab, the feeder will only appear half-full compared to a full bale which will fill the feeder entirely. SWEM Horses will eat from accessible grain and hay-feeders when hungry. When eating from a slow feeder, the horse will consume 1/2 bale (1 slab) per use.
Right-click a block with a slow feeder in hand to place it against a wall or on the ground. When a slow feeder is placed at the intersection of two or more blocks, its appearance is different; it becomes a corner piece that connects to all attached sides.
The recommended placement of slow feeders is on the ground, or one block up.
If broken, feeders yield back the remaining bales/slabs.
Slow feeders are technically over 1 block to prevent them being climbed up on, but nearby shavings may make it possible for horses to get on top of one. For that reason, they should be considered for escape points in stalls.

Paddock feeders can hold up to 3 Bales. Right-click a paddock feeder with a bale to place it inside the feeder. The number of bales placed into the feeder will affect the appearance of the feeder's hay. SWEM Horses will eat from accessible grain and hay-feeders when hungry.
All bales appear the same in the paddock feeder - but feeders will not accept a mix of different bale types at one time.
Right-click a block with a paddock feeder in hand to place it on the ground. Paddock feeders require 2x1 blocks and cannot be placed unless there is sufficient space. They are 2 blocks tall.
When a paddock feeder is broken, it drops any bales it was holding.
