Reduces wasted hay for stall kept horses – Making cleaning easier & quick for any farm, barn or boarding facility
Horses are always performance ready!
All horses need to start with loose hay in addition to the nets for the first few days when introducing the slow feeding method.
We like to see all horses start with 1.5-inch netting, as this size allows your horses to graze easily from the net, the needed requirements for an average horse without too much frustration. If after some time your horse is well accustomed to the 1.5 inch hole and is now getting through his or her hay fairly fast and is on the heavy side, this is the only time we suggest or recommend a 1 inch net hole size, as this will slow down the consumption of hay to a slower rate. Ponies and minis do very well right away with the 1-inch netting.
All bags do not need to be filled to their full capacity & can be left loose on the ground if there is no shod or horned animal.
We have many customers that do not use hay nets or round bale nets all summer. Please remember you must feed some loose hay for a period of time when you reintroduce the NAG Bag - when you see them leaving the loose hay you know it has been properly accepted, especially when beginning to use the nets in these colder times. This even needs to be carried out if your horse has had this system last year or last month.
Remember that starving a horse out with only a flake of hay in the AM and PM is not going to help them lose weight! It only causes stress, ulcers and may cause other habits that form with this feeding practice. It’s the hay that needs to be corrected. Then it can be fed all day 24/7 and you will see many changes physically and emotionally!
