Knotless 5 x 4: Suitable for Round Bales 5 foot by 4 foot
6cm (60mm) Holes: The 6cm nets are primarily designed as a Hay Saver as opposed to being a slow feeder product. It is a popular option for hay that is stalky or not very palatable. Our 6cm nets are great for broodmares, young stock & old horses that don't require slowing down. This size will slow the consumption rate marginally, however more so it will keep your hay together and minimise wastage.
If your horse is shod or not regularly trimmed, you must either tie your hay net high enough OR have a physical barrier between your horse's feet and the hay net. If your horse is shod then simply tie your net up a little higher. You can also put your net inside a box or other device that stops their feet from coming into contact with their hay net.
It is not recommended to leave buckled halters or other types of buckled headgear on your horse when using ANY type of hay net as your horse may get caught.
Similarly, do not let horned animals such as sheep, cattle or goats eat from the hay nets as they may tear the netting or become entangled if not constantly supervised. Ear tags also need to be taken into consideration as they may get rubbed out and removed on the netting, particularly with cattle.
