Slow feed nets are great
We now feed all year around with nets. They are especially good for winter since it stretches the hay out over a longer part of the day.

Hay nets
I use these daily (for three years now) to feed hay in the stalls and also use them on camping trips. The two inch openings don't drop as much hay on the ground and therefore much less waste. Horses will eventually eat through the material and open a larger hole, but for the most part these bags are very durable.

Love these Hay Nets
They fit in the Hay Hoops perfect. First we tried the Tough 1 Hay Nets - we were not impressed. These hay nets are much sturdier and hold up to the horse's munching much better!

There is a lot less waste and it keeps them busy for a longer time.
I like this slow feed hay net very much, my horses grab the bottom and shake the heck out of it. The hay falls on the mats and not a bit of hay is wasted.

Long-lasting nets!
I purchased two of these nets around five years ago - they have held up to constant use and abuse by my hackney gelding. Completely worth it at the price point, withstood NY winters outdoors, have not ripped/split at all. They hold up to the test of time and the test of a pony!

Looking for ways to have my horses waste less hay when standing at the trailer at barrel races
JENA O on Aug 27, 2018
For the price, these hay bags are sturdy and last longer than many other brands I've tried.

These easily hold 12 pounds of hay. Very durable!
Diane H on Jan 29, 2018
This hay net has a nice thick closure cord, durable netting material, small holes that are not too large but not too challenging. Net is a good size to not have to fight getting hay in it, yet it is not cumbersomely large.
Holly W on Jan 6, 2018
Decent product for the price they last a long time
ELISHA M on Nov 27, 2017
Hoping to slow my guys down when eating their hay.
LYNDA C on Oct 9, 2017
I allow my horses to free feed all day since they are grazing animals and it is the healthiest and most natural way for them to eat. This replicates the idea of grazing. They have to eat slowly. Helps keep my horses from getting too stressed out or developing ulcers.
Affordable P on Jul 25, 2017
I love the slow feed hay net! Bought two, gives the horses something to do being tied to the trailer without cleaning up a bale of hay!
LINDA Q on Jul 19, 2017
I have 2 big eaters & this really helps slow them down!

DEAN D on Nov 25, 2016
Really helps slow the horses and burros down at feed time. We have found them to be pretty resilient as well. Cheap enough that if a hole does get chewed into one, we can easily replace it with a new one.
April L on Nov 1, 2016
Great price, holes not too big, works to slow down my greedy mare, but not so small of holes she gets frustrated.

Best net for the money. Pays for itself in no wasted feed in a week.
ANDREAS J on Sep 1, 2016
Holds up well to a lot of abuse. Holds several flakes of hay and definitely slows the horse's eating time down.

I use these at my barn. They work great for horses, goats, sheep, and cows. They are sturdy and the 2" holes are just right. I waste very little hay. They are easy to wash. I've been using them for about 5 years.

Replacing a 4 year old net.
KATHY K on Jan 11, 2016
Of the various slow feed nets available on this website, this one was the only one that got numerous good reviews. Other nets were not well reviewed, and some were out of stock. For the price, this seemed like a good bet. While most nets of this type hold up fairly well, time does take its toll, and after a number of months need to be replaced. Again, the price and good reviews made this choice the obvious one.
K I on Dec 13, 2015
For slow feed but it is a terrible product. Too long and hard to fill.
David L on Dec 11, 2015
Have purchased these before and was very satisfied. Purchased similar item locally at same price but not as satisfied so came back to these.

Trying to slow horse's rate of eating hay and prevent wasting hay on the stall floor to be stepped in and soiled.
LINDA O on Oct 26, 2015
Purchased 6 of these over a month ago. They are working out GREAT! It takes my 2 horses all day to empty 1 full bag (1/2 bale). The bags are showing absolutely no wear & tear at this point and price is great! I ordered 2 more bags so I can fill them on the weekends and just bring out 1 bag a day during the week.
CINDY M on Oct 18, 2015
For the price great deal & durable. Ordered them in couple colors then I can pre bag hay when I go away to streamline things for horse sitter.

Seems to be made better than other hay nets. Holds up longer.
KAREN P on Aug 31, 2015
It does what it says. It slows down the chewing and I use it with the feeder/loader frame. Eventually the horses will tear it but everything wears out.
BRENDAN F on Jul 31, 2015

How much do these hold? 1/2 bale? 1/4? Less?
Mark M on Jul 15, 2014
BEST ANSWER: They hold about half an average bale. I normally put one over each end of the bale then cut the strings, very easy way to fill the net!
Will these nets work in the hay hoops feeder?
A shopper on Oct 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I am not familiar with a hoops feeder. This product is used for horses who are out 24/7. We place several of them on the ground throughout the field. They get quite a bit of wear and tear from the horses but no damage to the nets. Have been using these nets for almost a year on daily basis. Great product. Good quality.
is this plastic or nylon ?
A shopper on Mar 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Polypropylene (I hope I spelled it right) plastic. It's very durable exposed to weather, I typically get a couple years use out of each one of these...with greedy horses...
Will this work for sheep?
A shopper on Dec 25, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes it would work for sheep but make sure that it is tied up high enough that they cant get their feet in it.
Sheep are very stupid and are always finding a way to get into trouble.
Will these nets work in the hay hoops feeders?
Karen r on Oct 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I don't know if they will fit in those.. I just hang the slow feed bags. They work great though. They slow down the horses while they eat. I think it is more natural for them.

I can't see the top of the bag. How do you tie them up?
Crystal H on Mar 18, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Drawstring closure, use the twine to tie to whatever, I put snaps on mine.
How hardy is this bag? I have a gelding that likes to wolf down his hay, but he is pretty hard on hay bags. Would this be a good choice or does it tear easily?
A shopper on Apr 30, 2014
BEST ANSWER: i have two of these and LOVE them !! I wish I'd done it sooner. I have a gelding a.k.a. "the beaver" who also has awful stall manners and would soil the hay causing massive waste and intensifying stall cleaning- Since giving him the hay net- it totally occupies his brain, he can spin it, twirl it, tug at it and it has held it's own extremely well- I would say SUPER hardy !! It has also eliminated the hay waste and made his stall super easy to clean (under 10 minutes for a 12x12) !!
are the openings at least 3inches square as old horses with worn teeth cannot get hay out of 2 x 2 openings?
Mary Jane N on Nov 17, 2014
BEST ANSWER: This hay net has 2 inch opening. Works well with young n old horses as my experience has been to see them use their muzzle to first pull the hay out then use their teeth to grab it. We have a 28 year old with worn teeth as well n he has no problem munching away. Another with grazing muzzle who also has no trouble getting the hay out. Over time the net has become more pliable n has held up very well for past 9 months with daily use. Highly recommend this product.
is it good for alhalfa hay?
DEBI C on May 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes. Our mare eats mostly alfalfa and she does not have any problem getting the hay out. She has learned to toss the net, which actually shakes the leaves out of the net onto the floor mat. She is also able to grab pieces of the grass stems out of the hay net. It works well for her since she normally eats the alfalfa way faster than Timothy.
Do these have the metal rings to draw the cord through? I find those more sturdy.
JULEE D on Dec 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No metal rings. I have had them last from 6 months to more than a year and my warmblood is an aggressive eater. I feel it is safer not to have any metal that could come off and be left around his barn. These are the best, most convenient I have found. Best price, too!
How much hay do these bags hold?
A shopper on Oct 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I easily fit 3 to 4 flakes of hay in these bags.
They are very durable. I had the expensive brand name hay bag pouches and the horses easily destroyed them. There is much less wasted hay using these bags and the hay lasts longer per feeding.
Easy to fill by sliding over a bale. Or I put them in an empty molasses tub and fill them up.
Well worth the price.
What are these hay nets made of? Looking for something more durable than polypropylene.
Mary B on Nov 22, 2014
BEST ANSWER: They are made of some kind of plastic, so they don't seem particularly durable. That said, I've been using them every day for the past year and they are all in pretty much the same shape as when I got them. I have one horse that chews the heck out of EVERYTHING, so I bought him a different kind of hay bag. Everybody else in the barn uses these and they have exceeded my expectations as far as durability.
how far apart are the connective ties?
A shopper on Mar 21, 2014
BEST ANSWER: If you mean the actual hole size - about 2-2.5 inches. It's at the barn so I can't measure. It works great and my mare has no trouble using it. Once filled - can hold 4-5 flakes if you stuff it - and easily last 2 days. My mare is out at least 8-10 hours a day and this keeps her occupied and "grazing" and has cut the wate drastically. She is definitely much happier with it as we wait for grass to come in. I highly recommend it. By the way, she grabs at the hay sticking out and I've seen no wear or tear at any of the holes. Also I have it attached to a post about shoulder ht off ground and I use a double end clasp to attach one end of clasp to eyelet on post and the other end to hang the bag. Hope this helps.
If you don't want to hang the hay bags up, and just put it on the ground for them to eat & play with, how do you tie the strings and put them inside the bag (?) to keep the horses from getting hooked in the strings. Now somewhere I read an article just about this very thing, but don't remember where I saw it at !! Is it on this site? Thanks, Jo
JO T on Apr 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: If they are pawing at it or biting at it they can definitely make holes in the bags. You just don’t want them to get a foot caught in it. That being said you could remove the string ties and hold the bag together with carabiner or smaller tie.
Where are these made? In the US?
A shopper on Jul 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: They are made in China. I've had several of them for years & they've held up well -- love 'em!
Why do people answering my question fail to understand that the 2" squares do not work???? The 29yo stallion has no effective teeth to pull the hay out. Others needed to have hay soaked, & wet hay swells making it impossible to pull it out. If the company offering the item could only describe the dimensions/size of the hay bag holes it would have avoided all these replies that do not understand EMS, IR, serious aging complications, or that some horses cannot have NSC over 10 in their diets AND also have dental issues. "One size fits all" in this case does not work!
