But it was only after our daughter took a interest in horses that we started making hay nets. The first ones were for her horse, an OTTB. The feeder is basically a round bale cover that is made our of netting that completely encases the round bale.
It should double the life of a round bale. Can be used with or without a round hay ring.This is a complete net with #48 nylon 4 m. Twine that will fit a 5 foot high by 5 foot wide (diameter) round hay bale. It has 2 inches holes which will allow your horses to eat without making a mess of the whole bale. It will slow their hay comsumption down by about half, depending on the horse. Horses are known to graze just about 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. They don't need to consume that much hay. It will also eliminates waste because it keeps them from pulls out big chucks and most of it falling to the ground.
The hay net feeder is made from #48 commercial white 4 m. Each strand is over 480 pound test.
From our experience the horses teeth do not damage this netting. The net is reusable over and over again. This net is super easy to install.
Just pull the net over one end of your bale. Flip the bale over and tie off the other end with the pre-installed rope.Installing in just 2 or 3 minutes. This net is not recommend for farm animals with small feet such as goats. Their feet may become tangled in the netting. We also offer nets with 1" and 1 1/2" holes. If you will be using this net without a metal hay ring, we don't recommend using it for horses with shoes as the shoes may become caught in the net.
