"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
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!
