Planning to use this when I have to stall my horse... will go in a tub, trying to cut down on hay waste
JENA O on Aug 27, 2018
This puppy is huge! Super easy to load, too. If I leave for the weekend, I can leave a bale or two out for the kids to nibble on while I am gone. The neighbors don't have to feed for me; they just check to make sure all legs are attached and nobody is bleeding. ;-) I will buy another one.

Using the full bale net for outside tubs in the paddock, and again, to reduce waste. Good investment. My horses are barefoot all year round so don't need to worry about concerns expressed in other reviews.

We chose this hay bale net in order to allow our horses to eat more naturally. Studies show that horses are healthier when they are able to eat consistently throughout the day. This keeps the gut healthier.
JANIE N on May 30, 2017
It had good reviews on the site and I'm always looking for ways to keep my horse healthier.

Have a mare that eats too fast and constantly. Hoping to try it if we need to be gone a couple of days since I can't leave her out on grass.

These nets are great. I use them all the time and they hold up well.

Has anyone tried hanging the bale feeder up hooked on a loop on the wall as you would other hay feeders? If so, how did this go? Did the net hold up, or was it hard to tie up?
A shopper on Apr 24, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, I hang it (the bad with hay) from a tie ring with a carabiner (I run the carabiner through the netting like the draw string is so I don't tear any of the netting) and when the hay gets low, instead of filling it again, I use another one (carabiner) at the other end and hook both ends up on the tie ring so they can get most of the hay eaten that's in the netting. It works great for us, it's off the ground and it's not too high up so they have to eat with their heads up in the air.
After you get the bale of hay in the net and pull the string too tighten can the horses get their hooves in the end of the draw string?
A shopper on Nov 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: If left ‘as-is’, yes a horse could get their hooves in the end of the draw string. You have to get creative with the end.
I would place the bale into the net and then remove the twine.
The Slow Feed Square Bale Net itself worked really well.
How do you open it to put the bale in? Mine is closed on both ends, the rope is woven through in a way that will not allow it to stretch open....It looks like the only way to open it is to cut one end of the rope.
PL P on Nov 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The rope should be ran through a buckle of some sorts once you pull the rope through that buckle the end will open there is a spike like piece of metal in this buckle that kind of locks the rope in place I stand my hay bales on end and work the open end over the bale while it's standing then I'll drop the bale and work the net over th3 bale after tightening the rope again I'll run my rope through the ring on the opposite end and tighten it and pull the rope back this makes picking the bale up much easier i feed small square bales and can fit a bale n half in these haynets there is so much less waste and it helps prevent the horses from getting heaves from shoving their noses into the bales and inhaling the dust I've also have used ground stakes to help secure the haynet in one area makes it easier to track them down once empty lol if for some reason you're not finding the buckle that the rope runs through with the prong in the middle you might of unfortunately received a faulty bag I've ordered a total of 4 haynet in 3 years and am very happy with them I suggest to others to order from thia sight cause they're not as costly as other haynets available and last just as long also if still having issues contact customer service that might have a picture of the buckle that the rope runs through so you'll have a visual to help you understand 😊 Good Luck
What is the size of the holes 1 inch or 1 1/2 inch?
Donna D on Apr 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: For sure they are NOT one inch holes. It has been quite some time since I purchased it but I recall they were regular 2" holes.
I have three horses and feed coastal hay that is the reason for my question I don't want to put tons of coastal out and one pig out. Do the folks with multiple horses just put one bale out or two? I have two piggy ones and then one that is on the bottom of the herd. Just trying to decide if two would eat and then leave for him to get some.
A shopper on Dec 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have 3 horse and as pecking order goes, one is always working around the other two. Because this is a slower feeding process and horses are natural grazers for a majority of their day, mine don't leave these much. I have found that putting out two is best. I bring my horses into the corrals at night and turn them onto the feeders during the day. Their weight has stayed maintained and they come into the corrals at night easily, telling me they are getting what they need.
What can I get to repair the holes, like a role of black twine, since I get a few hoes per month with 4 horses? thank you!
karla on Dec 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: People I know who use hay nets use baling twine for repairs. Any sturdy twine could also do the job.

what is the actual size of the net? I am on the west coast and have the larger three strand bales. Will this fit those?
A shopper on Jul 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: holding the top and hanging straight down, the net is about 6 feet in length. Stretching side to side (not holding from the top) the net measures about 3 feet wide. The net is very stretchy and I have plenty of excess room using 2 string bales. I often wrap baling string around the end closure to "shorten" the net so it fits the bale tighter. I put my netted bale in a short wide 50 gallon trough with holes drilled in the bottom in case it gets wet. I drilled two holes in each end and tie the net to the trough with baling string, otherwise the net ends up in the paddock as my horse pulls the hay out to eat. (I would rather keep the hay under the cover of the open stall rather than have the hay exposed in the paddock.)
How do you safely secure the rope that closes the bag, if you want to put the bag out in the middle of a corral, rather than along the fence?
Travelcat on Oct 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Let me first say that this is a great product, I have always tied mine to the top rail on my no climb fence wrapping the long drawstring rope around the top pipe several times before tying it off.
unfortunately the net bags do stretch and my horses were using there hoofs to pulverize the nets to get more hay out which ripped up the net, wasted feed, and one day my paint horse had gotten his hoof inside a net section and was dragging the empty net around, luckily nothing happened and I caught it in time.
Currently I have my nets hanging from the top of my shade cover so the bottom of the net is at least 4 feet off the ground which is a two man Job. Once hung I place a galvanized feeder under it to catch the falling grass. I have also tied to the top of fence and let the hay bale/net just sit in a large feeder. Anything to keep it away from there feet. Hope this helps.
what are the approx HxWxL measurements of the tough-1 slow feed square bale net?
Elizabeth L on Oct 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The feeder will hold a bale approximately 18" x 36" x 14".
Is this ok to use in my horses corral for slow feediinng or are they just meant for large areas?
A shopper on Oct 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The item can be used wherever you'd like however, it does hold an entire bale of hay.
I have one horse, and was wondering on average, does it take to go through a bale of hay?
Mary F on Mar 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I bought these hay bags and i absolutely love them! Great quality products. They are large and i currently am using 35-40 pound square bales. For one horse, you would be looking at this size bale lasting two days. The bags i ordered have the 1.5" netting. Hope this helps. :)
Is there way to hang this feeder sideways, since I'd prefer to not use the open/close string for hanging it?
texanvet on Feb 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Sure, with double end snaps
