PROUDLY MADE IN AUSTRALIA - also ideal for alpacas, sheep and goats.
These tough nets are made to last from durable, pre-stretched, UV stabilised, heavy duty 48 ply polyethylene netting with a sturdy PE drawstring.
The holes are just large enough for the horse to get the hay through without gorging (4cm/1.5" square) – making it last 2-3 times longer (or more) than when fed loose. The small holes also mean little ponies, foals and minis can't get a hoof through the netting. These nets are designed to be used at ground level. Hanging them will make them harder to empty - a good strategy for small greedy ponies!
Top 7 Reasons to Use a Slowfeeder haynet
Slows down consumption so the hay last 2-3 times longer and replicates grazing.

I have a square bale size for if I'm away for a couple of days so my neighbour doesn't have to worry about feeding, and 2 of the large size of which my mare gets one in the morning and one in the evening. After the first couple of days when she was determined to empty them asap (they stood up to the rough treatment well!), she now spends an hour at the net, then loafs for a bit, wanders around and nibbles at the almost non existent winter grass - and then comes back for some more and makes one net last for 5 or 6 hours. So they really do replicate grazing behaviour as long as consistently filled.

These nets are getting better and better! I have MANY of them in all sizes for different reasons and seasons, and I would not be without them. The most recent (hay bale size) is bigger than ever to make it so easy to fit a whole bale in, and the quality of the material is excellent.

I got several of those. Perfect to keep horses from eating too fast. Also very sturdy and horses can be fed from ground.

The slow feeder haynet is great for my stallion as it helps the boredom factor. I am realising all the good points so won't bore you by repeating the same however something to note... my 29yo gelding appeared a bit sore after the first 2 days, I guessed the different mouth motion (he's always fed from the ground) may have just made his muscles tire .. a couple of days alternating net and straight off the ground and he's been right since, it's great!

This slow feeder haynet is strong durable and easy to use the new tie is much better than in the older version and has no signs of wear
I thought I would be given extra material to mend possible holes with however none came in the package but up to now I have no use for it my horse hasn't managed to nibble any holes into it yet
It keeps my hose occupied for hours and is good for both his mind and his body he is much calmer having something to nibble at day and night

Our horses live in nice big paddocks at home and we hate stabling them at competition venues nearly as much as they hate being confined! We love the hay net because they have constant grazing available in their stall. Boredom behaviour disappeared right from the first use of the net. We put a loose biscuit in the corner to avoid frustration as per the directions, they ate half of that and then left it to go pick from the hay net! Very pleased with the results. Couldn't recommend the product highly enough.

I am very pleased with my nets. The herd accepted them without any problems and we have so much less wastage. Gone are the days of hay been blown away by the wind or it being trampled into the mud. The herd is so much calmer,less frantic at feeding time. Thank you Cynthia for all your advice on how to put them out. The best solution we have found for our conditions are to attach the nets to tyres with rims still in them.

I am very pleased with this product. I have been using it for some time now and it is still in an as new condition. My horse has not been able to destroy it no matter how hard she tries! Even though the holes look small she is able to get out every last bit of hay and there is minimal wastage. She is now a happy horse busily grazing away at her hay for hours rather than scoffing it all down at once. Great product, highly recommend it!!

I LOVE this product. I brought a small one for my mini and large for my bigger horse. It keeps them busy for hours, and despite looks they don't struggle with the small holes. It's so tough too! I'm buying two more and a large round bale one as well!!! Fran.

I will never go back to my old hay bags & hay nets since I have started using my Hay Saver Tough Nets. My wastage of hay has reduced dramatically and the horses are spending more time "grazing" on their hay. I find I am actually feeding less, and horses look better. Great product that I am recommending to all my clients

I love my new hay saver nets. I have 9 horses and I like to use round bales to give them access to hay at lib but in the past there has been a lot of hay wasted. With horses gorging on more then they need, treading it into the mud, it blowing away and them urinating and pooing all over it I estimated that they waste nearly one third of each bale. With the nets on they have slowed down consummation and it stays contained. They are not treading all over it, spreading it or pooing or weeing on it any more and when the wind blows it stays put. They eat all of the hay until the net is completely empty and there is no more waste. Where in the past there would be a foot of ruined hay left on the ground, there is now hardly any trace of where it has been. I smile every time I walk past them happily munching from there hay nets.

The holes in the netting appear too small but they work a treat. It fits over the square bale really well and my goats can't scatter and squander the bale like they used to. A bales lasts my 3 goats a week.

These hay nets changed my horses. They would vacuum their food within minutes. Now they take their time and have hay all day, they are calmer and slimmer :)

Hi Cynthia, I now have my 2 5x4 round bale hay nets up and running and they are BRILLIANT! I can't recommend them highly enough. My hay lasts at least twice as long and every scrap of it gets eaten, rather than 25% of it ending up as rubbish. The horses took to it straight away. I haven't had to tie it up or anything either. They just eat it down till its all gone! Thank you so much. OH, also, they are very easy to put on. I wasn't sure if that would be the case. my 'hayman' has been recommending them to other clients, and I have been recommending them to friends. Thanks for a great product. :)

My beautiful horse has had two bouts of laminitis in the last year and is an extremely sugar sensitive horse which has necessitated many changes in his environment and diet.
The slow feeder hay nets have been absolutely instrumental in his rehabilitation by providing a constant source of low sugar hay, thus stabilizing his blood sugar. I have found them extremely useful for soaking his hay and the tough nets have held up really well despite almost constant feeding.
I would highly recommend the tough nets, they have been absolutely fantastic! :)
