HycoFlexTM uses the following ingredients to provide a complete joint health care solution. Collagen provides structural support for joint cartilage. Hyaluronic Acid ensures that collagen structure is reinforced and remains elastic, while also supporting the lubricating action of the synovial fluid. Vitamin C, as studies have shown, increases the amount of collagen absorbed by your horse. Vitamin A supports the proper functioning of the immune system and cell regeneration, while added Vitamin E acts as an antioxidant, which helps to protect cells against free radicals created during exercise. The addition of peppermint helps to stimulate digestion and also provides an antispasmodic effect. Most importantly, the peppermint makes HycoFlexTM palatable to over 98% of horses. What good is a supplement if your horse doesn’t eat it?
HycoFlexTM is designed for the active horse during all stages of their life, from training to competition through to retirement. Riders using HycoFlexTM regularly report an increased willingness by their horse to better use their bodies, with more forward movement and overall fluidity.

Things you may consider
The size of the net hole you choose depends on the type of animal you are feeding, its developmental stage, lifestyle, and what hay type you are providing. See our Net Guide for more information and our Hay Testing page.
general guide below:
1 inch: Ponies, miniature animals, and young mini goats and lambs will all do very well with 1-inch netting.
1.5 inch: This is our most popular size for equines, donkeys, mules, alpacas, goats, sheep, llamas, rabbits, and yes, even chickens!
2 inch: For larger breeds like drafts, warmbloods, working horses, young and older horses, and calves.
2.75 inch: For cattle and horses, when consumption is not an issue, just wanting to keep the hay in the feeder. The 2.75 is a great net, especially in colder climates. It can be used for older horses, growing, working & racehorses, and it works great for cattle. This net needs to be used in a feeder as its larger holes could be a hazard.
When introducing slow hay feeding hay nets, always provide loose hay along with the NAG Bag for the first week. Loose hay feedings assist your animal in learning how to "graze" from the nets properly, minimizes the chance of net damage, and prolong the life of your NAG Bag.
Remember, slow-feeding is only as good as the hay that’s being offered. Meeting the animal's needs is very important, and ensuring that you have the correct hay type will help ensure successful net feeding.
NAG Bags will benefit all equines, especially for the care of ulcers, colic, cribbing, aggression and nervous horses. Small but frequent meals are your best defence against the formation of ulcers and promote ulcers' healing. Veterinary-recommended NAG Bags support healthy digestion.
NAG Bags offers hay nets in various sizes and capacities to accommodate different needs.
The small-sized hay nets typically have the capacity to hold around 1-2 flakes of hay or a smaller quantity suitable for individual servings. These are often convenient for travel or shorter feeding durations.
The medium-sized hay nets have a larger capacity, capable of holding approximately 5-6 or more flakes of hay. These are ideal for extended feeding periods or for multiple horses.
The large-sized hay nets with the highest capacity are Round Bale and Large Square Bales. The capacity of these hay nets is tailored to accommodate the size of bales, measured in feet (width x height).
It's important to note that the exact size and capacity options may vary between different models or product lines offered by NAG Bags. It is recommended to refer to the specific product descriptions or reach out to NAG Bags directly for detailed information on their hay nets' size and capacity specifications.
NAG Bags can be used with shod horses. However, the nets should be placed in a tub, feeder, hay ring, or hung out of the pawing range. We do like to see the net in a lower position, if possible for a more natural foraging position.
When Nag Bags hay nets are property introduced, our customers find that their horses prefer to forage from the Nag Bag rather than loose hay. Trickle feeding is natural for them, and they know it. Choose the correct net hole size for your animal to match their needs and hay type.
Please view our Net Guide for more information. Still not sure; please call.
Our nets are constructed with longevity and animals in mind. Constructed with high-quality knitted nylon blend material ensuring that our slow feeders' hay nets can withstand rigorous use and maintain their integrity over many uses.
