Have a Hay House or Hay Hut? Love it but looking for a solution for slowing down consumption and eliminating waste? Look no further; we have designed the perfect net topper for inside.
Simply attach the NAG Bag netting to the bottom of your Hay Hut/House. Drill every 5 inches and tie on inside for security, OR use piping to attach.
Two sizes available (Large Square & Round Bale)
Available in 1", 1.5", 2" & 3"
We recommend either a 1.5", 2" or 3" net for these feeders.
BEFORE YOU ORDER, PLEASE NOTE:
All horses need to start with loose hay in addition to the nets for the first few days when introducing the slow feeding method (even if the horses have used slow feeders before).
We like to see average-sized horses start with 1.5 inch netting, as this size allows your horse to graze easily from the net. After a time, some horses master the 1.5 inch hole and now consuming their hay fast. This is the only time we suggest or recommend a 1 inch net hole size, but best to add a more fibrous hay type as this will also slow down the consumption of hay to a slower rate. Ponies and Mini's 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 re-introduce the NAG Bag - when you see them leaving the loose hay, you know the net has been properly accepted, especially when starting with the nets in colder months. This even needs to be carried out even if your horse used this system last year or last month.
Remember that starving a horse 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 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!
