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.
EASY ON HORSE’S TEETH - this hay net is made with our unique soft poly mesh that was designed to be extra gentle on horse’s teeth and gums so your horse can eat more comfortably.
HOLDS A TWO-STRING BALE - 56” hay nets will hold up approx. 12-16 flakes of hay (up to a full two-string bale), 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 72 hours or more.
IDEAL FOR ALL HAYS - this hay net was designed to have an opening size that will comfortably accommodate any type of hay, from orchard grass, to timothy, to alfalfa or whatever type of hay your horse prefers.
PREFERRED BY HORSES - testing has shown that horses prefer eating out of our soft mesh hay nets due to them being more comfortable long-term and not causing damage to the teeth and gums.
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.
