Going to a bunch of 2-3 day races this season and will be renting stalls..what is a large capacity hay bag/net that works good for in the stalls?

I use the slow feed hay nets from Big D's .. I use them daily in my stalls and my horses are pretty rough on them. Theyve lasted well over a year. And they are only $8. They hold 3 to 4 very large flakes of hay.

I would not be buying the expensive hay bags, some of the people that go to these shows will have sticky fingers and may take a liking to your good taste, I have had halters/lead ropes, buckets go missing even my muck bucket on wheels and muck fork go missing, I found my muck bucket and fork in a different barn, I went walking the stalls to see if I could find them since I had my name on them, it was used by different people at the time, one lady said she found my bucket and fork outside, so dont know what was up with that..

I always just use the cheap hay bags, that cost a whopping 7 dollars. I kept my good stuff in the trailer or at home..

I got a good slow feed net from valley vet? I think....it’s big and has the ring at bottom to put a big clip through to hang or you can use the string. It was like $15 I think?...it will hold a whole bale.. also have a large hay burners net. Love it, but would like some of the half bale sizes too.

I like the idea of slow hay nets but my only thought is in a stall and cooped up wouldn't the horse get a sore neck from constantly pulling at it trying to get hay?

My guy is never sore in head/poll/neck when the body worker sees him monthly. He has a hay net in pasture and stall. I hang it in his stall at chest level to him--the bottom of the bag is about 1.5' off the ground. He doesnt really pull at it. He uses his lips and teeth to take nibbles.

Just for that reason you will see me lugging a portagrazer with me. I have the big corner one and a couple of XL sized ones. I ussualy take the corner one to races, it holds a lot of hay, so most of the time I only have to fill it up once a day. Yes they are expensive but have been holding up for over 4 years now. I also use them at home when I have to stall 1 for whatever reason.

Hands down Hay Chix nets, and they are having a HUGE sale right now until the 22nd.  15% off + free shipping and also several bundle deals to choose from.  Unfortunatly no discount codes or discount links are active during the sale.  But if you put amanda19 in the notes that will still show them that I referred you and id greatly appreciate it.  

**Recommendation:  I love the original 1 3/4" heavy duty half bale net, I always recomend this net to help with stall bordem and over eating.  However you dont want your horse to get frustrated and neck sore, so I would still offer a small amount of hay on the ground so they can fill their bellies then pick at their net OR I would go a hole size up and get a 2 1/2" net that will be easier for your horse to pull hay from but will not offer as much slow feeding effect.   These nets are extremely high quality and will not fray off or harm your horses mouth and last FOREVER (unlike cheaper brands.)  Take advantage of the sale they have going on now.  Youll save time and money with Hay Chix. 

 

If anyone has anymore questions feel free to DM me, I'm happy to answer them.

Have you ever had one that got a shoe stuck in it? I'm also afraid of that as back in the day when they were wider openings we had one get the edge of a shoe caught

No. In the pasture, the roundbale is in a ring also. And in the stall, it is clipped to where it's not near his feet. If they are barefoot, you can leave with no ring, and/or throw the bags onto the ground.

I prefer the NibbleNet. Its made out of a softer rope. Easier on their lips than the nylon ones. They last forever too. You just might have to replace the drawstring after awhile. I do that anyway. They have lasted daily use for well over a year!
