my horse bolts her food and the nets keep her eating slower. using them for several years. I love them and my mare is happier to be eating for a longer time!
tara B on Nov 25, 2015
The reviews were favorable. Sounds like I can use them for my horses and goats.
Teri N on Nov 5, 2015
we find using these nets saves on hay and we can weigh the hay on a scale and make sure we are giving the correct amount to each of our horses, one is a bit over weight so she gets a bit less the other needs a little more so by filling the net and weighing it we can keep a better record

I bought a bunch of these (14?). I use them daily! These are by far the best hay nets out there! They are also better than a lot of other hay gadgets that I've tried that cost tons more. Don't waste your money! Just buy these!

how high do you hang your hay bags? if you are using them in the stalls- do you hang on the outside or in?
Ellie on Mar 8, 2014
Best Answer: I hang the bag on the opposite corner from the waterer inside her stall. Feed, hay or water should be no higher than the horses own heart. I use the whole string to tie it up, that keeps my horse from getting her hooves or neck in it. She has better stall behavior than the horses that do not have a slow feed hay net.

Does this hay bag have the metal ring at the bottom?
Bonnie J on Aug 28, 2013
Best Answer: Hi Bonnie,
No, these hay nets do not have the metal ring at the bottom. These hay nets are flat across the bottom, which allows more room for stuffing hay flakes. The nets with the metal rings, were the original slow feed hay nets with small holes and a ring at the bottom. I have 3 of those nets with the metal rings and I have not been able to find any more of them for purchase. These hay nets that State Line Tack sells, are made out of the same thick material and have the same small holes, but these hay nets hold more hay, they are bigger. I have tried other brands of slow feed hay nets, and they have had too large of holes and were made of very thin cording material which made it easy for my horses to pull their hay out quickly - not much better than a standard hay net. I have 10 of these State Line Tack slow feed hay nets and I am very happy with them, I use them every day.

how much hay does this bag hold? I purchased a slow feed hay bag that holds about a half a bale of hay but I don't remember the brand. These look the same, but I want to be sure. I bought the Weaver brand that have the bottom ring and HATE them, they have a smaller opening and are harder to fill. Thank you.
Brenda V on Sep 21, 2013
Best Answer: About half a bale of hay,too. Depends of the hay sort you are feeding , more stemmier hay fits lesser good. But I have a trick to fill it very easy: get a square laundry basket and insert the hay net, it will widen it up and make it easy to fill cause it stays open! :-) good luck!

What is the size of the holes on these nets?
Laura M on Sep 27, 2013
Best Answer: Laura,

When I was researching slow feed nets, I believe I read that the size of this haynet's holes was 2 inches. Now that I have them, I can say that the holes are definitely much smaller than regular haynets and probably 2 inches though I haven't gone out and measured. I have been using them for a couple of months now and am very happy with them. My Fjords (VERY food oriented) used to finish their hay within 15 to 20 minutes with lots wasted under foot. Now the same amount of hay takes about an hour for them to eat and there is very little waste.

how long does the bag last?
Johan n on Jan 30, 2014
Best Answer: This net stays in my horses stall. We fill it everyday with coastal, timothy and alfalfa, it holds a lot. She really likes her net and prefers it over eating her hay just thrown on the ground. It has held up perfectly even as many times as I have used it to soak and drain her hay. I have 2 of them thinking I would need it after she broke or chewed through the first one; I haven't needed the second one yet.

Would this hay net be suitable for a horse wearing a grazing muzzle? Just wondering if he'd be able to get anything out!
A B on Feb 10, 2014
Best Answer: Hi, I wouldn't personally use both--I would use one or the other. This hay net has pretty large holes--I didn't measure them but there are nets with smaller holes out there. Once it gets back to being warmer and I am monitoring their hay more, I will go back to using a nibble net. (I think that is a registered name so you can look it up if you want to. I think there is another brand out there called "busy bag or "busy feeder". Hope that helps.

One other thing I just thought about--this is a super big hay net. You could probably buy two and double them up and it would slow him down. But I would forego the grazing muzzle and the net together--too frustrating for the horse.

how high should hay net be hung?
A shopper on Oct 24, 2015
Best Answer: Natural grazing position is best because it promotes ideal swallowing action and encourages more healthier chewing. Slower and relaxed chewing in a more natural grazing position reduces the risk of esophageal obstructions, choking, etc.... I always use one more net than herd count (3 horses=4 nets) I hang them from separate trees (set wood post if no trees are available) I use large eye bolts and large spring action clips that hang through the bolts. Thread your drawstring through the clip, wrap the string around the tree, then open the clip and secure tied end of drawstring over the hook end of the clip. The bottom of my nets hang no lower than 1ft. from the ground and no higher than the average chest height of my horses. I introduce my horses to the natural slow feed method with 2" then 1.5" down to 1" nets. If horses are easy keepers the 1.5" or 1" is best to use, but 2" would be the largest, regardless, in my opinion. Anything bigger than 2" is really not "slow feeding."
My horses have 24 hour access to their "filled" hay nets, water, and shelter that are located in the smaller pasture section.They are turned out daily to graze 4-6 hrs. in wide open pastures that are rotated weekly.
Since I want their hay to be available 24/7, I use nets that can hold up to a minimum of 3-4 flakes each. This size works well because 2 flakes/net/day seems to be sufficient during the prime grazing season here in Kansas. When winter hits and green pastures lay dormant, I load the nets with a minimum of 3-4 flakes each. My horses are content and relaxed.......hanging out, grazing from their nets during the hours they are confined to the smaller pasture. I am an absolute believer and advocate of any quality made "slow feed" net!
Good Luck! Rebecca from Kansas!

what are the sizes of these nets?
A shopper on Oct 16, 2014
Best Answer: Hi , I use these daily and love them !! They hold 3,to 4 flakes of hay depending I how tight you pack them . These nets slow my horses feeding time , so they stay busy longer . For me if I pack tight flat flakes of hay into the nets it lasts longer than loose fluffy hay .
