Natural Horse Slow Feed Haynet
Our Natural Horse Slow Feed Haynets have changed the way our horses relate to food, all for the better. We use them daily with our herd of rescue horses to excellent results. The use of them prevents the over-production of stomach acid in horses, which can lead to ulcers, as they allow the horse to trickle feed for several hours, which keeps the digestive system nicely ticking over, whilst saving money as they cut down on waste and prevent hay from being blown away, stepped on, and wasted on the floor....plus they allow our horses to eat as nature intended, which is little and often.
Each net net measures 100cm x 85cm and can takes between a slice up to half a bale at a time and you can put as little or as much as you like in them to suit minis through to draft horses to suit all sizes. They come with a contrasting soft rope easy-close draw string that helps you to see the opening for easier filling, and a heavy duty carabiner snap so you can clip your net to a fence or fasten around tree etc...
Our nets are purposely designed for horse use & are able to stand up to the punishment of horses pulling at them for several hours at a time. They are made from extra tough continuous netting, with extra thick 48ply strands(which is 48 separate strands bound together for strength) with 5 x 5cm holes which we found is the best size for horse use, as any smaller & the horse could not get the hay out & became frustrated with it, and if any bigger it was just too easy -defeating the purpose of slow feeding.
The small holes mimics trickle feeding as when grazing which is excellent for good digestion & ideal for all horses, including those good doers.
Various colours of red, black, green, blue and yellow are available
