Product Summary:

Kensington Freedom Feeder Extended Day Net
 
The goal of Freedom Feeder is for every horse to have high-fiber, low-calorie forage available 24/7. Using Freedom Feeders is a way to “free” us from meal routines and help our horses live happier, healthier, and more natural lives. Freedom Feeders may also eliminate anxiety around meal time and reduce the likelihood of colic and such behavioral issues as weaving, or pacing.
The Extended Day Net can hold about six flakes, up to 50 pounds of hay or a 2-string bale net. Ideal for slow feeding or insulin-resistant horses, it comes with four breakaway carabiners — two for hanging and two for optional hanging strings. This net needs to filled every other day once the horse is satiated and trust is rebuilt that it will never again be without forage.
 

Freedom Feeders are available in 3 different size Mesh openings, so that your horse can have the most optimized feeding experience.  It is important that you chose the proper opening for your equine partner:

 

  • 1" Mesh opening is ideally suited for slow feeding INSULIN RESISTANT OR SMALLER grazing animals
  • 1.5" Mesh openings is ideally suited for optimal slow feeding which is meant to mimic grazing and slow consumption
    • This is the most “One Size Fits All” option
  • 2" Mesh opening is ideally suited as a transition feeding option for the  AGGRESSIVE eaters and larger horses.
    • If you have an aggressive eater, our suggestion is to start at this option and slowly transition to the 1.5” size

Features:

  • Made in the USA
  • For use in barns and pastures
  • Holds up to 50 lb.
  • Comes with four carabiners
  • Made in the USA

My horse free feeds and this is perfect for his grazing hay (Bermuda) so if he gets hungry at any time of day, he always has something to munch on. The holes are small enough for him to eat slowly and I usually do not have to fill it up but once every two weeks because it holds so much. I have attached it in a big rubber trough so it stays clean and there is no chance of him pulling it out and getting a hoof stuck to it.

Have 5 of these in the 1.5 inch. They are very durable and work well - hay lasts much longer and there is very little waste. I am hoping the 1 inch will slow them down even more, but price has gone way up so can only get 1. I fill them all up at once and then have hay ready to hang for many days.

I have 2 horses: 1st. a tough keeper that likes to toss his grass everywhere and then not eat dirty grass, this clearly helps reduce waste and he will eat "clean" grass from net. 2nd. an easy keeper who likes to gorge, this is an easy solution to slow his eating. I love my freedom feeders, this is my 3rd one and I'm sure there are more in the future.

how much hay does it hold ?
A shopper on Nov 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Holds up to 50 lbs, 6 flakes, or a 2-string bale net
How easy are they to fill? thinking about getting this for my horse at a boarding barn, but need it to be VERY easy or the staff won't use it.
A shopper on Nov 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The freedom feeder is very easy to fill and I have used a feeder like this for about 5 years. I bought this size because it looked like it would hold almost an entire bale of hay like my previous one but it is not that big. It can probably hold 4 flakes of our coastal hay. So, I don't think it would be a big deal for the staff to fill. I unfortunately made the mistake of purchasing the bigger one as well because my previous large one filled from what appears to the top in this photo however, the biggest one fills from one end (for an entire bale)--this one is a pain to fill but the top loading one is easy. I had to add an extra rope through the top woven around the openings because my smart little horse figured out how to stick his nose in between the ties on the top and just eat all he wanted. I would recommend these feeders.
Can this slowfeeder somehow be anchored into a trough as an extension to regular feeding in my hay baskets? I have no way of hanging on my fences, as they have hot wire on them.

BEST ANSWER: I’m trying to figure out a way to do that too. I thought of putting an I-bolt in the bottom of a big plastic trough and using a snap hook or carabiner to anchor the net to the bottom but the Freedom Feeder net will tear. I tried putting a full net in a trough without anchoring it but they can pull the bag out as it gets lighter. I love the Freedom Feeders and I wish I could make it a ground level feeder rather than chest height to mimic natural grazing. Putting a bag on the stall floor or out in the pasture is out of the question for safety and cleanliness reasons. Maybe someone will post a solution.
