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.
My horse has been using this hay net now for a few months. It has held up great! Fits about 4 flakes. Recommend!
Excellent a bag for horse that needs to eat the hay but you want to keep it in one place and don't need to restrict eating. Very durable and easy to hang.
