By Jaime Jackson. Paddock Paradise is a revolutionary model and guide for safe, natural housekeeping, hoof care, and the healing and rehabilitation of lame horses. The premise of "Paddock Paradise" is to stimulate horses to behave and move naturally according to their instincts. This unique and unprecedented model is adaptable to virtually all size horse properties, regardless of climate, and fits all equine breeds regardless of how they are used.
Encourages more natural movement, as nature intended.
Greater movement means natural hoof wear with fewer bills.
Protects horses from dangerous founder-prone pastures.
Minimizes the need for warm-up exercise time before riding.
Helps address neurotic behaviour by providing natural outlets.
Provides an effective means for diet and weight management.
Adaptable for breeding, foaling, multiple horse operations.
Before you order, please note:
Unsure of the net hole size for your grazing animals? Please refer to our online Net Guide. If you still are not sure about sizing, please Contact Us directly.
We highly recommend all grazing animals to be introduced to nets with loose hay feedings for the first few days (up 7 days). Remember, this process should be practiced every time you re-introduce nets.
Many customers do not use their hay nets all year round. When re-introducing the NAG Bag nets, we recommend feeding loose hay alongside the net for the first couple of days. When you see your grazing animals leaving the loose hay, you know the net has been properly accepted.
All NAG Bags do not need to be filled to their total capacity. NAG Bags can also be fed loose on the ground with ease with no shod or horned animals.
Remember that starving an animal out with only a flake of hay in the AM and PM will not help them lose weight! It only causes stress, ulcers and may cause other habits with this feeding practice. It’s the hay that may need to be corrected; we recommend hay testing. You will see many changes physically and emotionally when feeding correctly. For more information on this topic, check out our resources.
Disclaimer: We do not recommend using nets with horned animals, horses with blankets or non-breakaway halters. Nets may be used with shod horses but must be used in a feeder, tub or hung high. NAG Bag nets may be used with blankets as long as the buckles are covered.
