What is natural for your horse? Based on ground-breaking research with wild horses of the U.S. Great Basin, The Natural Horse vividly describes how domestic horses can be made happier and healthier through an understanding of what nature intended for their species. This landmark book, originally published in 1992 as The Natural Horse: Lessons from the Wild by Northland Publishing, opened the doors to the current international "natural horse care" revolution.
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.

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.
