I had to wait 4 weeks for this product to arrive because it was on back-order. I wanted to use it for a metabolic mare who cannot be turned out to graze. I mounted it on the pipe gate with two flakes of hay in it, and stood there to watch and see what she did with it. She nibbled some hay out of the little squares but when she couldn't get enough in her mouth at one time, she opened the top with one jerk of her teeth and proceeded to eat out of the top of it. The top velcro closure certainly is no match for a hungry horse. I'm very disappointed in the design of this product.
"would be best for trailer feeding, NOT for everyday use"
The netting holds up very well and I prefer this type of feeder to the net, but the solid back is not up to the task and shreds easily. It was destroyed by my horse in about three weeks, shredding the canvas back. The Slow Feed Haynet lasted for nearly a year and is less money. If you want a feed bag like in this style, I would suggest spending the extra and buy the NibbleNet without the solid back.
"Not for Daily Use"
I bought these to slow down my fat geldings hay consumption, after only a few weeks use the stitching was ripping and the D rings were pulled out. These are a complete waste of money. Granted it did slow down my geldings hay consumption but are now useless because they have large holes in the netting. They worked great until the stitching started to rip.
"love these bags!"
I ordered several of these for my kids to use during 4-h shows. I also used a couple to feed a mare while at my house. I love how much they hold, - I can fit a whole flake from a big square bale! The only problem I've had is the horse reaching into the bag from the top & then pulling too much out. To help prevent that I added clips to the top rings to help hold it shut. I believe these bags will last us many years since we primarily only use them a week out of the year, we don't use them at all at home, the horses are either on pasture or big bales at home.
After reading good reviews on this product thought it would be a great buy for a great price compared to nibble nets pricing. I have used it maybe four times in a stall, with only one flake of hay, not over stuffing it and this morning was wondering why hay was on the ground. The back totally tore away at the bottom seams from the front net. Maybe I received one of the old bags with bad seams... Very disappointed!
A while back when this was first available I bought one. It lasted the winter, but the plastic backing on the inside of the bag was coming off(so a horse could eat it by accident), the part where the hooks would attach the seems were coming undone, so I had to add a Caribbeaner to one of the hay holes to help keep the bag up. Also the clips on the straps were kind of cheap. by the end of winter it was pretty gross looking from my horses slobber, and I didn't want to wash it. for $20 at the time it was worth it compared to a $75 or more bag I thought. So I ordered a new one, WOW did they work on improving it, they made it so the seems will no longer break from force, they added a bottom string so you can help tie the bag against the wall, they have better plastic lining in the back, so it doesn't look like it will flake off ever. They have much better quality clips on the straps now. I think they may have added velcro... maybe, but I over stuff that thing so much velcro is useless to me. I can put 3 largish flakes of have in it plus some scraps. last year when I filled it I usually put scrap hay in it only(so I used this for extra hay on top of my horses normal rations), so I would stuff the bag, and then stand/jump in it to pack the hay in, then add more, and repeat until no more would fit. I had no issues with any of the seams that held the bag together. Also since they keep improving this bag, I would say this company really cares about the product they are selling. I have had no issues so far with the current new one I have. Since this is for sale today on there frugal friday sale, I'm planning to buy another one or two. I've got a pony that I'm working with that could use one of these. Lastly, what my horse thinks of this: so my horse walks into his stall after being ridden he sees 3 huge flakes on the ground, and a bag stuffed with scrap hay. Which one does he go f
I ordered this bag to feed my baby goats and it worked great for them. Later I rescued a Arabian when she was abandon and it worked excellent for her also.
"Perfect for goats"
I love this hay feeder! It holds 2 large flakes of hay and stands up to goats pulling and tugging at it. Most of the hay gets eaten and little falls to the ground. Easy to fill too.
Cheap chinese quality. Fell apart in less than a week. Snaps, stitching, vinyl all substandard. I learned my lesson, if you want American quality buy American made products.
"not worth it"
The bag is small. I bought two. One was destroyed in less than a week. They are not very sturdy. All in all, a big disappointment. Maybe it would work for a pony.
"Bottom came out"
In one week the bottom of the bag came apart.I feel it is poor quality.
"Great bag for the money"
This bag has held up great for my 3 yr old colt. He has a history of demolishing every hay net and bag I put in his stall. For the money I would recommend this bag, even if it does not last forever. It has lasted longer than any other hay bag has, even the ones I used with less destructive horses.
"Poor Quality Materials and workmanship"
The hay bag's bottom ring tabs tore off with the very first use. The hardware is lightweight and the snaps broke with a second use. I feel I wasted what meager funds I have in my equine budget. Inferior materials and poor quality workmanship - I oculd not recommend this product.
This is a great hay bag. It stands up to my mare's vigorous biting at it to get a the hay. I wish I had bought it on sale, but still a great buy at full price. No problems with hardware. My mare really pushes this thing around and there hasn't been a problem.
"Very Little Waste"
I bought these bags to use on a week long vacation. I used them morning and night.There was very little hay on ground. Only problem was one of the bottom rings broke where it is stitched and another bag is starting to rip in same place. Top rings held up and so did rest of bag. Overall happy with quality and would recommend. People that was with me liked them as well, there cheaper hay bags didn't last the week.
