"love these hay nets"
My horses are now able to eat as "naturally" as possible (no pasture) with their heads down and slowly. To fill I put the bag on a hook, fold the top back a few inches and it's easy . I did get a couple of holes, had hooked on something, but easy to repair with the ever present bailing twine!
I have 5 of these and have been using them for several months in a covered run in area. They are out there 24/7. NO more wasted hay, stomped in the mud. They have relaxed with use and hold 2-3 large flakes (I have the blue/black) I also got the filler that fits over a board. Works Perfect!
These worked out so well, I'm ordering two more so I can pre-load a few. They softened up after a week or two of use and became much easier to fill than when they were new. To load, I put them in a large bucket and drape the top of the net over the sides, then just fill the bucket. For some reason, my horses like to eat from the net better than if I give them the
These bags can definitely stretch out. I bought the large and you can honestly put a whole bale in there, which could be great for some people. I wasn't able to keep it because the place where I hung it in my stall in ended up on the ground.
"very large, but a hole after just a few days"
I'm not sure if I should give this a 3 star or not. The bag is BIG. I think it could fit a whole bale, but then it becomes so heavy it's difficult to carry or hang. I usually get the SmartPak brand of slow feeder nets and love them but ordered these to try something new. Wish I hadn't. Already a hole after just a few days, the rope used is thin compared to my other bags. My SmartPak bags last a year or more before blowing out. Won't order again.
"Great value for the price"
Hands down one of the better slow-feed nets I have used in this price range. The drawstring cord is very heavy duty. After a year only a couple small tears and that is more due to the eagerness of the horse.
"I have 3, Just ordered 5 more!"
I've seen many different brands and styles, this is hands-down the best and for a great price. Easy to open and fill, perfect sized holes, easy to tie/untie, and durable. I had one that has a hole in it but I'd rather it break that get tangled on my horse. Still useable, just slightly equine-abused as all things usually become!
"Bewildered by the large variety of slow feed haynets. I took a chance on the Squire because of their reputation for good quality products. Important: the holes are 1 1/2"", not 2"" which in my opinion is much better. They are labeled as such from Squire and also measure as such. After several weeks of trial in which they were in front of the horses 24/7 I can say they are an unequivical success. Not even any fraying..they still look brand new I bought the large. At first they were stiff and only held 3/4 bale. The stiffness left after some use and if the bales remain tied while loading, they will hold a full bale. You can then cut the baling twine after securing the net closed. Can highly recommend this haynet by Squire"
I bought 3 of these for my horses. I took the string out added a quick link and throw them in the paddock. They have held up great and I am getting ready to buy more. I absolutely love these.
"Works Great!! "
I purchased these hay nets for my hay hoops. I have 6 horses and have tried the cheaper hay bags that work ok, but this one much easier to load hay in and my two that chew the other nets up don't chew on these. I love them!! keeps horses happy longer and stall cleaner.
"Hole in a month"
Purchased this with the hay hoops and it's in a run in shed where only two horses are, and it already has a soccer sized hole in the net. Hasn't even been up a month! Wasn't worth the money. I bought one for half the price in the past and it lasted a year. Total disappointment.
"Great!!! love them"
These bags are amazing! Stronger than I thought they would be. hay easy to fill when I put two pegs up and hung them on the pegs ...piece of cake. the horses love them and gives them a more natural feeding time span more like grazing. I have them for my sheep which saves me tons of hay cause they waste very little now. For me these are top of the line and would highly recommend them for anyone with stock that eat hay. Put your 2 pegs to hang from and Don't wait order!
"Can't wait to receive it"
I have wanted to get one of these for a long time. After our last trip the waste was enough to convince me to do it now. So this is a Christmas present to me and my horse. Looking forward to less mess and waste. I would give it 5 stars, but I don't have one yet.
"Great Hay net"
Combine this with the Hay Hoops and you have a winner. With the large hay net, put 2 loops on each hook of the Hay Hoops, and it is super easy to fill, and it keeps my guys happy for hours.
"Winner slow feed hay net!!!!"
I have several of these, the horses do very well with them. Sturdy and keeps them busy all day/night. I can fit an entire bale in one, about 45# bale in mine (red/black colored) and I know the horse will have some left when I get home. I love these nets. I even purchased 2 for a friend, she loves them too!!!
