PROUDLY MADE IN AUSTRALIA - Clearance Sale of Regular 36 ply Nets - $5 off listed price until sold out
These tough nets are made to last from durable, pre-stretched, UV stabilised, heavy duty 36 (regular) or 48 ply (tough) polyethylene netting with a sturdy 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 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 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! :)

Love going to work in the morning knowing that my greedy horse isn't going to eat his breakfast in 30mins. I now give him breakfast and lunch at 7am. Such a good feeling knowing its more natural for him to be feeding slower. I would like the half bale one to be a bit wider as I have trouble getting it over my oaten hay bale.

I love the round bale slow feed net.
I bought the large round bale with 4cm holes. This has reduced the amount that my mare will eat in a day and also saved me heaps from no hay being blown away.
A number of people have commented on what a good idea the bale net is, and have purchased their own nets.

I have been using the hay nets since they have come on the market - I have 10 nets overall. The first lot is still going strong, though I had to repair a few holes and they are not as easy to fill as they are smaller overall, I have to fill them biscuit by biscuit. My most recent purchase were 3 of the large nets and they cover a bale easily. My 3 horses have a net each but also love to share one net. Wastage is greatly reduced and only occurs with what they consider less desirable hay (such as wheaten). As I have to feed hay year-round, I can't recommend these nets highly enough.
Store comment: Thanks Connie - great to hear. The newer nets are larger and also stronger as we're improving them due to helpful feedback.

I have seven of these nets now for my three horses and pony and I fill them all when I have some time making them ready for use immediately, They are the best for keeping the horses occupied for a longer time, stops them wasting hay and gobbling hay.
On impulse I bought another brand and honestly, my horses all fight to get Cynthia s hay nets so they do not have to eat from this other one! so, often it is the pony, lowest in the hierarchy who draws the short straw.
I have recommended them to so many people who have since order them and found the same benefits as I have.

My horses only took two or three days to work out how to nibble at their hay - instead of gobbling it until they were no longer hungry, and then throwing the rest around. Sure, there were holes to mend, but that is so easy and pretty soon the horses stopped trying to bite the net and just nibbled the hay through it.
Also thrilled that the wind can't blow the hay away.
I am now getting at least two, and up to four, weeks out of a round bale (depending on how many in the paddock) instead of seeing it wasted in less than one week. These nets have paid for themselves already.

I have had my round bale net for several months now. My horses surprised me by sharing the large bale happily, I think they love the communal eating. They are on a paddock paradise system about 22/7 so use the feeder for a great deal of time. And life is so much better now that I dont have to stuff small bags 3 times a day! But I do have to repair it almost daily as the horses are getting pretty good at chewing through it. WOuld love it to be made of stronger material but I think it's a great product and will definitely replace it when it's no longer repairable.
*Note from store owner: We now make them in 48 ply netting - sounds like you got one of the last 36 ply nets. Glad its still working ok for you.

Bought one large round bale net, and had to get another. No waste and the horses prefer to eat the hay with the net vs. on the ground.
No more fighting over food.
Love it, and the horses love it.
