Hay/Haylage Feeding Hay/Haylage Feeding

Haynet-L (60mm) for naturally kept horses


Hay net for feeding naturally kept horses in�field or yard

Horses, ponies, donkeys & mules are grazing animals and it is important that we simulate these conditions when feeding hay, haylage etc either indoors or out

NB: If showing as out of stock, please order as we can usually fulfil back orders within a few days.

Natural feeding position (on or near to the ground):

  1. ensures correct alignment of the jaw when eating�thus helping to avoid many dental problems
  2. aids respiration�since the airways and sinuses are able to drain
  3. helps the back muscles and�ensures correct development of youngsters
  4. stops incorrect muscle from developing under the neck (ewe neck)�and helps to form a correct topline, which in turn helps your horse to work in the correct outline

Can be used indoors or out, attached between fence posts, trees or to a wall, using these haynets will help to ensure that your horses don't develop teeth or jaw (TMJ) problems; a horse is designed to eat with the back and neck stretched downwards.

wooden pole holding haynet open for fillingHaynet-L is the smaller of the hay nets being 1.5m (approx 5ft) long and 1m�(just over 3ft)�deep.� It has been developed for use in herd situations (indoors or out)�and will take a small bale of hay.

See Haynet-XXL for feeding larger groups of horses.

Mesh size for all haynets is 60mm - 70mm (2.25" - 2.75"); this has proved to be the optimum size to ensure best feeding rate (horses are trickle feeders)�and minimise wastage.

using the wooden pole to close the haynetEach haynet is supplied with a wooden pole which is used to hold the haynet open for filling, then�threaded through the net to close the top (see photos).

After a 6 month series of tests the nets have proved to be safe for donkeys and mini shetland ponies too.

NB: These haynets have been developed for use with barefoot / unshod horses only
