Derby Originals is the original inventor of the 4-sided hay bag, U.S. Patent No. D742,078. Our four-sided hay bags are the only bags on the market that allow your horse to freely eat from any part of the hay bag. These patented hay bags are the result of years of careful study and testing to create a design that is attractive, functional, durable, high-quality, and preferred by horses. Our bags are constructed of reinforced nylon webbing that is stronger and more durable than any mesh or fabric hay bag. These bags are designed with cross stitches at every intersection and bartack stitching at all stress points along the top, sides, and bottom of the bag. This hay bag also features our exclusive Super Tough Bottom®: a grid of reinforced nylon webbing that will never rip like solid or mesh bottoms. Our bags are built tough from premium materials and are designed to last for years to come. This hay bag is designed to be a great everyday feeder for most horses and other animals: it measures 24x10x24" and can hold about 2-3 flakes of hay. This hay bag has 3.5x3” rectangular openings which will prevent hay wastage and is especially ideal for feeding coarse or long-stemmed hays and alfalfa. This premium hay bag also includes a 1-year limited manufacturer's warranty offered by Derby Originals.
HOLDS 2-3 FLAKES OF HAY - this 24x10x24" hay bag with 3.5x3” rectangular openings holds approx. 2-3 flakes of Timothy, Orchard, Alfalfa, or any other type of hay. Our hay bags were designed to minimize frustration and can be stuffed in seconds.
EXCLUSIVE PATENTED 4-SIDED CONSTRUCTION - this hay bag features Derby Originals patented nylon web design that allows your horse to eat from any part of the hay bag. This design eliminates the risk of material rips and tears found in other hay bags.
SUPER TOUGH BOTTOM® DESIGN - our exclusive Super Tough Bottom® is made of reinforced overlapping nylon webbing. This design allows for superior strength and durability while keeping your hay fresh and allowing dust and debris to exit the bag.
IMPROVES DIGESTION - horses are designed to spend up to 18 hours a day grazing. Slow feeding allows you to replicate this natural behavior and is recommended by veterinarians to prevent gastric ulcers, colic, and boredom-related behavioral vices.

I have had Derby bags for a few years now. My horses love them and I feel just as happy about them! I love the large holes for my older gelding, who has lost his upper incisors and can’t grab hay from smaller holes of slow feeding bags.
I also love how easy it is to hang and load the bags. Top loading bags are best for loading hay.
I’m 59 years old had horses since age 9 and I can tell u from ALL OF THE HAY BAGS I HAVE PURCHASED THESE HOLD UP THE BEST!
I've only been using these hay bags for a short time, so I can't speak to their durability. What I can say is that these are NOT "slow feed" bags. The holes are quite large and will not slow a horse down very much at all. Having researched, used, and written about slow feeders extensively, I knew this when I ordered them. I was not actually looking to slow my horses down -- I just wanted to contain the hay they eat at night (a large portion) so that my one messy guy can't spread it all over the feeding area and then poop and pee on it, which he does if the hay is just loose. I use these bags on the ground (rubber mats, actually), clipped very low to the wall of the shelter. This allows the horses to eat in a natural posture without any twisting of the neck or incorrect alignment of the teeth and jaw, which can happen if you hang feeder nets on the wall. I would NOT do this if my horses were shod, or if they had tiny feet that could get stuck in the bag's holes. They do paw at the bags to break up the hay flakes within, so this may wear the bags out quickly -- I hope not. I like these bags for my purposes, as they are easy to use and are doing what I need them to do. The velcro doesn't really close if the bags are full, but I don't need them to close that way.
Purchased this for my trailer for my draft horse. It's not slow feed which was the purpose, I still want him to have unrestricted access to his hay, and didn't want to use hay bag bins in the trailer as I wanted to be able to conveniently walk through. The bag itself is super heavy duty and well made, I love it!
Really great haybag...no stress in the trailer anymore! Easy to fill and easy to fix.
