Rated 2 out of 5 by EdieJ Disappointed!
I had bought a set of these previously and was very happy with them, but apparently they have changed manufacturers or models.
These do not have a solid bottom making it impossible to feed powdered supplements and meds. Guess I'll keep looking for the other model. The solid wall models they sell peel their inner lining after a few months.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Green Eagle Ranch Weak Straps
We have a 28 year old mare who eats a TON of grain. She really likes to scoop it out of her bucket and throw it all over her stall and because she is such a hard keeper, she was losing weight because she wasn't getting it all. I found this and was extremely pleased with the price, and the reviews. I got it in the mail quickly and it worked great, I could load it up with grain and she could throw her head all she wanted and almost none would fall out. I've had it for two, maybe three weeks and the strap broke where it connects to the bag. We heated up a nail and pushed it through where the strap connects to the bag and put a Chicago screw in to hold it. We will see how long it lasts.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Dee The new tuff 1 bags are not very tuff!
Have used the mesh feed bags for many many years. The original bags had mesh bottoms and while they did eventually wear through from rubbing on the ground, they lasted a long time. The newer tuff 1 bags have a plastic bottom and it wears and cracks through very, very quickly. I use these bags on three different horses and none of the tuff 1 bags have lasted longer than a month or so. The old ones would last a year or more before finally wearing through. Frankly, the tuff 1 bags suck!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by RED Love These!
Purchased my first for an older mare who dribbles, soon ordered another for camping & planning to order more now so each has their own. These are wonderful for feeding not just while camping but at home two. Easy on/off buckle, everyone gets their own ration without fighting, no waste - makes feeding a snap! I've been using them for months now & they pretty much look new...

Rated 4 out of 5 by horselover52157 nice product except
the clasp is not metal like the one shown in the picture but a cheap plastic clip that breaks after a short time. I've had mine less than a month and out of 7 purchased, 2 are already broken at the clasp. I won't order these again because of the cheap clasp.

Samson's teeth are fine but he still dribbled many of the small grain bits right out of his mouth. It didn't take him long to figure out how to work the bag so he gets every scrap now!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sierra Great for messy eaters!
I have a 35 year old horse that is missing teeth and is a very slow eater that likes to drop at least 1/2 of his feed so a lot is wasted. after we bought this and saw how well it worked its like a dream come true. He now eats all of his feed and non is wasted and now horses aren't not pushing him off of the feed either! Would diffidently buy again!

We have an older horse who eats slow and tends to drop feed from his mouth while eating, this bag ensures that he gets all of his feed without waste. Also, it's great for feeding multiple horses, you don't have to worry about one horse going without, they each get their ration. Have used this bag for a couple of years with three horses, and they are still in good shape. Planning to buy more for our new horses.
