Unfortunately my gelding ripped a hole in this bag with the first use. I mended it and tried it again with the mended hole on the bottom side of the 2nd bale. He ripped 2 more holes in the "good" side. My mare was not as destructive, but it was a waste of money for the gelding. I expected a more indestructible type of material for the money. If your horse is not ridiculously food motivated (like my gelding), then it should work great, as it did for my mare.

has anyone tried to hang the bale size hay net? I use 2 day nets, that hang on the carabiners. they work great but I have to fill them daily. I was thinking of adding the bale feeder but am not sure if it will be too heavy with a full bale in it to hang. has anyone tried ?
A shopper on Jan 7, 2017
Best Answer: First thing you should know is the quality is not what it used to be. I sent in photos and had no response.

The one for my horse is hanging now but I don't fill it up just put a few flakes. The best thing is to get a large bucket, drill a hole in the bottom and anchor it to the wall at the bottom. Then you tie the top up. The bucket keeps him from kicking at the bottom and getting a shoe caught. You could also put a corner shelf in to help support the weight and secure it at the top and bottom. Check out a hay box also. You can get them custom made in different sizes. Good luck!

How do you stop the horses from biting through the netting or pulling it and fraying it?
Nancy N on Apr 30, 2015
Best Answer: Good Morning. All I can tell you is that mine don't. I thought the same thing. Very skeptical. One of my horses is an aggressive eater. Eats constantly. He pulls the nets up so hard that he will actually turn the trough over. We weighted the troughs down and he still pulls them off the ground. Those nets haven't torn or frayed one bit. We've had them for 3 or 4 months now and they are absolutely fine. No issues whatsoever. Honestly, I think they're great for us and our four horses (we bought two whole bale nets and they share) and I would tell you if I felt otherwise!

will this hold a rectangular bale of grass hay that weighs up to 120 pounds? I don't know how to interpret 5' x 4.5' into a six sided bale.
k t on Dec 5, 2014
Best Answer: I suggest going to Freedom Feeder's website for more information on what this bale net is supposed to hold. When I leave this bale net attached to the feeder I place it in, I stuff in 25 - 30 lbs (4-5 flakes for me) without issue. I believe the website said it would fit around an unopened 80 - 100 lb. square bale. I like how it works; it really slows my 3 horses down and cuts down on the mess they make. I find it is a bit of a chore to load it, however.

What keeps the horse from pulling the netting out of the trough when its almost empty? Can they be used in hay "mangers"..(upright stand) or will horse it over?
A shopper on Feb 26, 2016
Best Answer: I used to have an upright hay manger but I got tired of my horses knocking it over all the time and having to pick it up out of the mud. I now have a round on-the-ground hay feeder -- kind of like a miniature large bale round feeder, but only about 3' in diameter. I use two carabiner clips to attach the freedom feeder net to the feeder. My horses pull and toss on the hay net but it never comes loose and my hay net is holding up great after a year of use. It has totally eliminated all hay waste.

How heavy is this?? Measurements?
Beckah K on Jan 24, 2016
Best Answer: It is not heavy as it is a sack made out of net that fits over a 3 string bale (5'5"x4'). I've had mine for a while and love it. I bought a rectangular feed tub at my local feed store to put the netted bale into.

Can the hay be wet? My horse has to have her hay washed.
tonia on Jul 23, 2014
Best Answer: Hay can certainly be wet. In fact hay soup is a good way to get a horse to drink more water if they don't like the taste of water. However, hay CANNOT GET MOLDY. Mold can kill a horse

Is this large enough for a round bale?
A shopper on Apr 29, 2014
Best Answer: No. Much too small for a round bale. A square will fit inside.
