Standard bag size will hold 2 string hay bales that are about 15″ x 18″ x 40″ long. (We have extra long bale bags for the 48″ long 2 string bales)
Paracord pull closure with cord lock comes standard – If you are hanging the net using the pull string, we recommend the rope upgrade.
1/4″ Rope Pull upgrade available (click link) -> Optional Rope Pull for our hay nets
Actual weight the slow feed hay net can hold will vary due to the different types of forage used.
These slow feed hay nets work great for daily use, camping, traveling longer distances, fill as full as you like for all day feeding.

Please keep in mind the smaller the mesh the more abuse it will take from the horses teeth, this can cause premature wear on the nets if the horse is not picking the hay out but grabbing the net and shaking it or just ripping at the net. THIS TYPE OF BEHAVIOR CAN SUBSTANTIUALLY SHORTEN THE LIFE OF YOUR NET and generally shows the horse is not ready for that small of a hole.
If you have a color preference, please put in the check out notes and we will try to accommodate. If you want ONLY a certain color, please check with us prior to ordering for availability.
