I have been using this for a while now and it is holding up very well.
These are amazing. They do exactly what they're supposed to do... and I don't have to attach it to anything. I just throw them around on their track or in a paddock (any place where it's safe for them to eat off the ground). We get a lot of wind in winter here, so on the very worst days I probably won't use them outside, but these bags are *heavy* even when empty, so I am confident they won't blow away. I could agonize over the hole size, but in the end, I think this is the right balance between small enough to slow them down significantly (and greatly reduce waste), but large enough that they aren't frustrated. And because it's heavy, they don't seem to have any need to hold it down with their hoof. As it gets close to empty, they will nose it around, but I think it's really the perfect choice for something you can just throw on the ground. I love that it's open on ALL sides. I don't have any problem closing it, though I suspect the velcro is not going to last long, and then I'll have to come up with something else. And it will still be worth it.
I'm SUPER happy with this purchase. My horse will gladly rip a hole in a hay net without a second thought so free feeding with a basic net was no longer a solution. The nylon webbing is strong and much more up to the challenge of withstanding a hungry horse than the flimsy nets. He LOVES his cube and "grazes" all day. I love how easy it is to fill and that it's completely safe for my horse to have in his stall 24/7 because there's no potentially harmful hardware or hooks. The only downside is that this really doesn't fit a full half bale at a time, but to be fair, none of these nets ever fit what they claim. It does, however, fit 2-3 days worth of hay as a supplement (my guy gets fed by the barn also in another feeder) or 1 full days' worth of hay if this was their entire feed.
I didn't like when, most of the time, my pony was more distracted by when I was going to feed him instead of staying on task. He just seemed in a slight panic because he would eat breakfast too quickly and just be waiting the second half of the day to eat dinner. Well, now I can stuff this full and he grazes when he wants. The issue I had at first was that, since he was used to just eating so quickly because of being nervously waiting to eat, he was able to rip four seams out of the end of the bag so he could bolt his feed as usual. Before that, he was just shoving it around and making the hay fall out everywhere and I solved that problem by tying it to a post. Then he ruined it. Fortunately the company honored their warranty after I sent them photos of the damage. I believe this is a great idea that needs a small amount of improvement because the horse needs to adjust to it at first. Double reinforcement on the ends would probably do it. The replacement bag should last now that I don't think he will try to get it open anymore.
I rarely write reviews but this product is outstanding. I have a horse who destroys everything and he has not yet destroyed this after nearly a year. It is EXTREMELY tough and very well-made. It also serves the purpose of slowing down the eating process for horses who wolf down their hay. I've put it through the wash a few times too when he's trampled it into the mud... it is still in perfect condition. Superb product.
