DURABLE POLY ROPE DESIGN - this hay net is made of a durable poly rope material that is resistant to breaking or tearing, as well as damage from UV rays, mold, or mildew.
HOLDS 3-5 FLAKES - 42” and 46” hay nets will hold approx. 3-5 flakes of hay, depending on the hay type and flake size, and how dense the hay is packed. These nets are rated to last the average horse about 30 hours or more.
FEED YOUR HORSE MORE NATURALLY - this hay net is designed to force your horse to eat slower and over a longer period of time, which mimics natural grazing and is proven to reduce colic and ulcer risks and be healthier for your horse.
MAKES A GREAT GRAZER - this hay net was designed to work being hung like a traditional hay net, or used out in pasture as a grazer. To use as a grazer, simply fill the hay net, tie the top closed and hide the remaining rope, and set it out for your horses to eat from.
PREVENTS HAY WASTAGE - whether you’re using your Classic Slow Feed hay net in the barn or pasture, this hay net is designed to cut hay wastage by up to 90% by preventing hay from becoming soiled or excess pulled from the net.
This hay net was tied by hand, so the hole size may vary slightly. The average hole size for this net is approx. 2x2”, which is the most commonly used and recommended opening size for slow-feeding the average horse. This size net opening will prevent excess hay wastage, while slowing down your horse’s feeding rate to a more natural, grazing-style pace. This size hay net is rated for use with any type of hay. For smaller horses and livestock animals, a smaller hole size may be necessary if the animals are able to pull hay too quickly from this style of net.
