This slow feed cover is for hay boxes. The cover has smaller openings to limit the rate that the horse consumes the hay. It has a metal frame to help the cover keep its shape. Most hay boxes come with a metal grid that can get hot in the summer and horses can accidentally hurt their teeth and gums on it. The cover made by Derby Originals is made from a durable nylon material that will not hurt your horse while eating.

  • THREE OPENING SIZES – these hay box covers are available in 1.75×1.75”, 2×2”, and 1.75×3.5” hole styles to suit your needs and your horse’s feeding preferences.
  • HEAVY-DUTY CONSTRUCTION – with a strong metal frame and heavy-duty stitching on the double-ply nylon, this design is built to last and stand up to years of wear and tear from your horses.
  • STEEL FRAME SIZING – the cold-rolled steel frames measure 32" × 22.5”, which is large enough for most hay boxes and will allow for your horse to have plenty of hay.
  • A SAFER ALTERNATIVE – these hay box covers are made with a heavy-duty 1” wide double-ply nylon mesh. Regular metal hay box grates can cause severe tooth and gum damage over time, but with nylon, your horse’s mouth won’t get irritated or cut as they eat.
  • PERFECT FOR DIY PROJECTS – if you’re making your horse a DIY hay box, these grates are perfect to use because of their safe nylon design, the ability to use multiple grates for larger feeders, and the ability to mix and match or swap out opening sizes.
