I just found out my horse broke his other one and I needed it very quickly. I've been very happy with the quality of other items I bought here, plus it's very convenient to order from my computer too!

G V on Mar 15, 2019
I ordered the smaller bag so I can load up a days worth of hay in separate bags and give one in the morning and one in the evening. The slow feeding helps a lot with boredom as it imitates grazing not gulping.

size of holes, encouraging reviews
Christine W on Feb 11, 2019
I wanted to try a slow feed haynet and these were priced low and had a good review
Debbie B on Jan 28, 2019
I have similar nets and wanted to try your's. The price was reasonable. The holes are 2 inch by 2 inch, which is enough to slow them down a bit without being overly frustrating.(They still have to eat!) Also must take into consideration that smaller holed-nets can cut horses' muzzles and noses when it's too hard for them to eat. I have noticed with friends' horses with the smaller 1' X1'' nets that their horses are much more aggressive with their hay nets, which get ripped up quickly.
Melody B on Jan 27, 2019
Been using them for years. Great product
Joan H on Jan 21, 2019

Good quality. I have 3 of these and have not had any issues with them.
wendy t on Dec 12, 2018
I hang these in my run-in sheds so that the horses do not have to stay inside the barn in inclement weather. I also use them when I need to put them in stalls to help keep them from being bored.
Elizabeth R on Dec 4, 2018
I put hay nets out in the pasture. I've lost a few black nets so decided to try pink for easier locating.

Robyn P on Oct 25, 2018
My horses take longer to eat the hay waste less too
Charlotte R on Oct 20, 2018
Very strong, holds 2 to 3 big flakes and the holes are a true 2"x2" so my mare is actually able to get some hay out unlike some of the other slow feed hay nets she just gives up.
Kylie L on Oct 6, 2018
Purchased before and held up really well until my pony got a hold of it. GRRRRR I have to feed the pony with a big hole bag to keep her from having a temper tantrum and ripping bag apart. But she is so cute otherwise.

Testing out feeder for an aggressive eater
Teri H on Aug 8, 2018
This is my third time buying these. They are simply the best. Hole size, quality of materials, and even the color, all just perfect. My Haflinger is very hard on these, and does manage to make a hole eventually. But these beat many others by a long shot. My Peruvian horse eats more daintily, and hers may last forever, lol.
Joann S on Jul 29, 2018
Needed it for my trailer
Virginia M on Jun 18, 2018
they really save on hay wastage. Plus with my schedule I fill about 10 bags and then put then out during the week. Saves time opening a bale and then filling it each night or morning.
Honey C on May 31, 2018
I use this net already, just needed one extra.

To reduce waste
Lisa S on Apr 4, 2018
I'm hoping this is the same as the ones I ordered in 2014, which are still in great shape. With all the outsourcing, though, I'm concerned the quality may have decreased as I found when ordering from another hay net brand. I won't know until they arrive.
BROOKE T on Apr 3, 2018
Need an option the hay won't simply fall out of. I'd ordered an extra slow feed net, but the holes are too small. I'm hoping this will be right.
Lark T on Mar 16, 2018
I have used this brand for years. They are the best in my opinion.

I love these I now have four. The feeders just have to hang a bag once a day and my horse has hay when he comes in for the night. I will now just have to set them up 2 times a week. Zeus loves to nibble his hay.

does this have the small metal rings at the drawstring?
sheila n on Mar 18, 2019
BEST ANSWER: No, it does not contain the metal rings, which is why I feel the price is lower for something that is non-essential. The quality is superb; I draw 3-4 loops of the drawstring contained in a double snap. I can then loop around a fence board or trailer connection and connect to holes in the hay net. Has served me well for many years with no failure. Also, this method eliminates the endless time-consuming knots and ties.
how do you close the top?
Sharyn L. on Jan 27, 2019
BEST ANSWER: We use it with the hay hoop. We love feeding.using the slow feeder. Less hay waste and it.keeps them busy. You can also close them by pulling up on the rope and.tie to your trailer.
Have these worked for Babydoll sheep?
Phyllis H on Nov 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I don't have baby doll sheep but do have horses and katadin sheep. I use the hay nets for the horses. they are quite long but as the hay is eaten it falls to the bottom. The holes are of a size that I think the sheep would have no trouble accessing the hay. It would depend on having the right height to hang it from. I have friends that just use a nail in a post and their mini horse does fine. they do slow down eating time
do you make 1 inch square for feeding goats?
A shopper on Nov 16, 2018

What kind of material is this hay bag made of?
Bobbi S on May 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It's a polyester type rope that holds up well.
Will this work as a replacement net for the Hay Hoops II wall feeder?
Bobbi S on Apr 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I don’t know much about the hay hoops wall feeder but love these hay nets no meds and I can put half a bale or more in them
Would this be good to hang in the trailer for longer trips?
CYNTHIA M on Mar 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I purchased this item and I only use it in my trailer for long trips. I have large warmbloods and I have had a few break apart the twine a bit so they have bigger holes. Overall for the price of the item it has held up okay. I like that it keeps them occupied on the trailer.
How much hay does this hold?
Teri E on Mar 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You can stuff at least 3 good size flakes in it. My horses actually get stressed out eating from these slow feed hay bags. I will not buy again.
Can this be used for goats?
Kay B on Jan 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The holes on this net are 2”x2” and a goat can get too much hay out of it at once plus it can get a foot stuck in it. It is recommended to use nets with 1”-1 1/4” holes for goats, miniature horses and horses that are very easy keepers.
Do these Hay Nets work for goats?
Scott J on Dec 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Goats are natural browsers, not grazers, so hanging one of these at about eye level should do it. Don't hang it too high or they will climb up and stick a foot on it. These hold up well to horses tearing at them, so goats, with their lack of upper front teeth, should be no problem. I'd also snap the bottom edge fast to something so the bag doesn't swing and catch horns.
What is the size of this net?
Sonja R on Nov 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I guess Stateline tack does not know the size of these. Funny because they sell them. I have a few they fit about 1-1/2 large square hay bales of hay. They are about 3-1/2 to 4 ft high when filled. They allow my horses to eat their hay at a slower pace, which is good for digestion.
Size of bag?
A shopper on Jun 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This bag is perfect size for a few flakes of grass or alfalfa. I bought a plastic trash can to use to fill the bag, simply drape the over the can and fill. My horses love these slow feed bags and they hold up great!
Who makes these hay nets?
A shopper on May 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: When I received my hay net, I do not remember it having a manufacturer's tag on it. But I have been very satisfied with my purchase. It is very sturdy nylon, it has held up well to weather and my horse. It was not until recently a more aggressive eater pasture mate began tearing holes in it and I have had it for over two years
I'm wondering if I can use these nets for the net frame? I bought the net frame that you attach to the wall but I got the one with out the a net.
Rhonda C on Feb 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I don't see why they wouldn't work..... did the net frame kit say what size hay bag fits it? These are LARGE hay bags. I love them. There are some that are smaller but they're too hard to try to put flakes of hay in. that's why I got these...they're wonderful.
Are these made by Shires?
BARBARA C on Jan 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I don't know that answer. What I do know is that they stand up to the horses chewing on them. They don't survive pack rats, but not much does. However, they are effective at slowing down the eating of both of my horses. I use a larger hole bag for the initial feeding, and these are placed around to allow the horses to "graze" throughout the day.
i personally love the nets, Yet if you would please make the draw string a different color it would help make refilling a easier ?
A shopper on Aug 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Definitely, I agree, make the drawstring a different color.
Would like to use for goats. comments? advice?
J J on Aug 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: works great small opening which they don't waste on ground and hay last a lot longer because they have to work to get it out.Have one horse that is frustrated using it because its harder to get out.would think it work good for goats because its the right size probably for a goat
What size hole dies it have?
A shopper on Jul 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The holes look bigger in the picture, but are smaller. I would say the holes are between 1 - 2." Definitely smaller than a regular hay net. I have several of these and they drop a lot less hay, plus horses take more time to eat. Great for trailer feeding, not as much waste.
Is the mesh on these bags elastic?
A shopper on Apr 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No, the mesh is not elastic. I'm not sure what these hay nets are made of, but they are soft, pliable, and tough! I have had these nets for two years and they are still in great shape! No stretching, fraying or broken mesh! despite my draft horse attempt to destroy them! These are a great product! Don't be afraid to give them a try.
does it come with a hanger?
A shopper on Apr 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No, you have to get some kind of device to attach to wall or hook. I use double end snaps because my horses' stalls have metal mesh dividers.
Can you get a discount if you order multiple?
A shopper on Feb 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I'm sorry, there is no multi-quantity discount for this item.
is this hay net made of cotton?
A shopper on Feb 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No. Not sure what it is but is very strong. Have had mine for over 7 years. Just now will have to replace one of my 6 bags. You won't be disappointed.
Does this slow feed hay net have rings at opening like the tough-1 hay net? Being 2" shorter that the tough-1 should hold about the same.....maybe a little less? Is the material as strong as the tough-1?
Marlyn H on Dec 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It does not have rings, and I have replaced the blue rope at the top with a white one to make it easier to distinguish from the net. It is incredibly tough -- I attach it at 3 points to a big Rubbermaid bin, and my horse is rough on it, twisting & tossing it within the bin. It holds 10-11 pounds of grass hay, and keeps him happy for hours. I highly recommend it.
size of holes in net?
A shopper on Nov 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: From my experience its about 1.5 inches by 1.5 inches. They are a good size to help the horse slow down and eat slower:)
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!

BEST ANSWER: Shires Equestrian Products.
who is the manufacturer?
A shopper on Sep 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Dont Know. But it's a great net. The only one useful with my mare. There's no hay mess in the stall
how many flakes does it hold?
A shopper on Jul 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Approximately 14 lbs of hay. However, depending on flake size, this will vary.
I have a mustang and she will eat a hay net up, will this one hold up? Is the pink like the one in the picture?
A shopper on Feb 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I purchased several of these almost 2 years ago.....I have 6 horses and one mule....some are aggressive....the nets still look like new....
I have a wild mustang and she will tear up a hay net so fast, Will this one hold up. Is the pink one pink like in the picture?
A shopper on Feb 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have some pretty destructive horses and mules. This feed net had certain held up to them. I bought the blue ones , so I don't know about the pink.
