I bought one of these to try to make the little bit of hay my fatty patties get last them a little longer. I was concerned, for this price, that it would be difficult to use and then would not last. Well, I needn't have worried! I have ours tied with bailing twine to pipe corral, and so far it has worked like a dream. It's quick to load with hay (I run out and feed before getting ready for my real job, teaching, so every second counts!) and so far is holding up amazingly well. And it works! Before, our ponies would finish their hay in around 30 minutes, and now, it takes them closer to 3 hours to finish. I've been recommending this slow feed hay net to everyone I know who has easy-keepers, bless their hearts!
"Very pleased with these"
Purchased several months ago to slow down my easy keepers and keep them busier longer. I had ordered these and the freedom feeders, I did not see enough different between these and the freedom feeders to warrant the huge price difference, so sent the freedom ones back. They have held up very well. We did have one gelding make a hole in his within a couple weeks, but he was grabbing at the net and shaking it until hay fell out rather than just pulling out pieces. He has since learned how to use the bag. I have them attached to pine trees in my pasture rather than the fence as we have electric fencing. I replaced the tied with carabiners which makes them very quick to fill.
The first Horz my horse used it for a few days and it started to unravel. So I tried the Freedom it wasn't much better. I liked the style so I bought two more of the Horz and they are holding up beautifully.
I purchased this net for my miniature donkeys and have only had it for a few weeks. The nylon netting is already starting to unravel. I have one of these nets made by Freedom Feeder which I have been using for at least 6 months with no sign of wear. The lower price of the net through Jeffers was appealing, but won't last much longer.
"best hay saver"
This hay net is awesome. We got one from the feed store locally but are ordering more. It easily holds a half bale and there is hardly any waste. You do have to "teach your horse" how to pull out the hay by leaving some tufts out of the holes. My foundered gelding learned in a week how to eat out of it and it slowed him down and no waste on the floor.
