This hay net is by far the best, especially for the price.
This is the second Slow Feed Haynet I've purchased. They are large enough to hold plenty of hay for the night. The smaller holes slow our horses down too.
"Excellent, Easy to fill"
Excellent and easy to fill up. Works the best of all brands I have tried. I get about a year of use from them before having to repair holes.
"Best hay net made"
I have 12 of these hay nets and have been using them for 5 years. They do eventually wear out, but the horses are very hard on them, so I expect to replace them every few years. What makes these hay nets different is that they have a metal ring at the bottom that weighs the net down enough to be able to put the hay into the net. Ever tried dumping leaves in a bag? Most of it falls out. Same with nets. You stuff it in and try to straighten the net and half of it falls out. Very frustrating. The metal ring in the bottom weighs it down enough to fill it more easily. No other hay net has this feature.Take it from me. I've tried them all and this one is the best!
"Sheep - Yes ; Goats - No"
We have been using these for goats 0 and sheep for the last month or so. They work great, but the goats have managed to put big holes in their two. The two for the sheep are still in perfect condition. And as stated in another review, these nets are big.
"Net for a Clydesdale"
This net is HUGE. Im not kidding when I say that. The large(black and red) bag actually holds a full size bale of hay. Excellent material quality, the holes are small, yet knotted very well. It has a metal circular ring at the bottom of the bag, either for extra ways to tie, or maybe to keep the bag in shape. Its a very long bag, so I recommend it for hanging in a tall area, or somewhere no horses that are trouble makers can step on it. I've had it for my Clydesdale for well over a year now, and it has held up just great. It's even been frozen to the ground (Upstate NY winters) and unfrozen, and is still in wonderful shape. Once again, Shires has great quality.
"Lasts FOREVER, BIG"
I love these haybags. We have both sizes and are getting about a year out of them with two pastured free choice fed horses. They've been thrown, walked on, rained on - we chain them to the feeder or fence and they pull on them as well. The big size holds an entire 3 string bale. Hint - bag the bale, THEN pull out the strings. I'm back here buying my second set.
"Slow Feed Haynet"
Love this slow feeder. I volunteer at a horse rescue and this slow feeder has been a life saver. The quality has allowed this brand to last the longest out of all the other slow feeders we have tried. This has been the best way we can mimic grazing while reducing food aggression. And has allowed horses to get along better. Thank you thank you thank you.
"horse hoof caught"
I'm sure its just my luck. But a friend had told me how well these nets were. she just filled them with a whole bale (orange/black net) and throw it out in the field. Well my mare just over night. and the first night i put it out got her left front foot stuck in the netting by the opening of the net. i had got it as tight as i could before tying it the night before. when i got to her that next morning she had it so tight around her ankle i wasn't sure if i would have to cut it or not. good thing i taught her to relax if anything was on her legs. she let me look it over and start unwinding it. took about 10 times to unwind it. but her ankle was just a little swollen. the nets all an all are built tough. but i will be hanging them from now on!
"I love this hay net!"
I am currently having to soak hay for my gelding so I bought a couple of these slow feeder hay bags. They are great! I usually hate putting hay in a net because it's hard to get the hay in. These are so easy to fill! I load the hay in the bags, then soak it and hang it up for Pepper to eat. Seem to be very durable. I like them so much that I ordered 3 more yesterday.
"Best Slow Feed Hay Net I've found"
This is the only slow feed hay net that I've found that doesn't break my pocket book and my horse doesn't tear apart easily. I used to have to buy a new hay net every few weeks because he'd successfully create a hole in it quickly. This one has held on for almost a whole year! :-)
"Best slow feed net for the money."
I've tried many brands and this one is the best in terms of durability and ease of adding hay. It has a metal ring in the bottom which weighs the net down so when you add hay, it stays in place. You have to struggle with the others. I have 10 of these now, and with two horses, I can use one bale a day to feed with no waste. I fill all 10 on Sunday night so I have to just hang them before I go to work. Works great!
"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
