Product Description and Bullet Points:
Derby Originals 90” Giant Slow Feed Hanging Hay Net for Horses were designed to better fit your needs than traditional hay nets. Most other hay nets are only 36” or 42” long and can only hold a few flakes of hay. Our 57” hay nets can hold up to 12 flakes or a full bale of hay, while our massive 90” hay net can hold up to 18 flakes or 1.5 bales of hay. This larger capacity makes these large slow feed hay nets great for use with multiple animals, for providing hay for multiple feedings, or for use out in the pasture.
Please be aware that all Derby Originals slow feed hay nets are made by hand, and may have slight variation in overall size and the size of the openings. All measurements and capacities listed are approximate. The amount of hay that our hay nets can hold varies greatly due to the type of hay being fed, the dimensions of the hay bale, and the size of the hay flake.
PREVENTS EXCESS HAY WASTAGE - our slow feed hay nets are designed to help you save money and reduce waste by over 50%. These hay nets prevent hay from being scattered or soiled which is beneficial to your horse's health as well as your wallet.
IMPROVES YOUR HORSE'S DIGESTION - hay nets allow you to slow feed your horse, which mimics natural grazing patterns and is proven to aid the digestive process. Slow feeding is recommended by veterinarians to prevent gastric ulcers and colic.
REDUCES BOREDOM - horses are designed to spend up to 16 hours a day grazing. Slow feeding replicates this natural behavior and keeps your horse occupied longer, which helps to prevent boredom-based bad behaviors such as chewing, cribbing, and pacing.
DURABLE MULTI-PURPOSE DESIGN - our hay nets are made from a mold, mildew, and UV resistant poly rope that is resistant to breaking and tearing, making these nets ideal for daily individual and group feeding, use while trailering, and for soaking hay.
HOLDS APPROX. 1.5 HAY BALES - this slow feed hay net can hold about a bale and a half, or up to 18 flakes of 2-string or square bale of hay. These hay nets are great for group feeding indoors or outdoors.

These things are definitely XL. One held enough hay for 2 of my geldings to share while traveling. I am only 63" tall and these are 90", but they were easy to fill and maneuver as a ground feeder under the bottom rail between their 2 pens. There was very minimal waste, and their water stayed a lot cleaner than usual. Not sure when I will need the spare, but both my horses and I love these things so I'm glad I bought them!
My only issue with this product is that the opening so too small. It makes it difficult to put a full bale in it.
great slow feed bag-and holds over a bale of hay!!
Love how big these are! Can fit a full bale with room to spare. The 2" spacing really helps make the hay last longer. Received them in just a few days.
Very good but my rescued mustang bit right through it. But my quarter horse eats just fine with it no problem
