SmartPak Small Hole Hay Net - NEW!
I haven't used it yet but.

Great for travel & show
This haynet has reduced how many bales I have to pack to shows to keep the horses busy while trailering and stalled over the weekend. Now I can keep hay in front of them all day without it turning into bedding.

How to tie so it doesn't hang to the ground
Draw tight! Hold with two fingers at draw. Loop around and pull 1/2 way through. Gather the length of the rope and tie a round knot right at the draw, pulling 1/2 to 3/4 of the rope thru. Wallah! You have just raised your hay net about a foot and a half. I read a review that noted how low it hangs when empty. It took me a couple of weeks to figure out a way to tie them so they werent on the ground. My horses are barefoot so it wasn't a big issue, but shod horses can get caught in any net. Great Product. See picture for knot. I'm 5'2" on a good day and these are hung right at my height.

Best slow feed hay net for price!
Bought 4 nets about a year ago. One of them got a small hole about 3 months into use. I credit the agressive eater for that. I repaired it with some parachute cord and it has held up just fine. If you have a greedy eater, hang several for the first week gradually decreasing to an appropriate amount of feed. I hang one very full bag at 5 am and at 3pm there is still a little in the bag. Two horses in a 1/8 acre paddock with no grass from 5am to 3pm. Then they graze at night. Definately a hay saver! BEST WAY TO FILL BAG - Put in empty 50 gallon or larger plastic trash can, pull draw string opening down and around top of can, tuck string under can and stuff bag. Pull string from under can and loosen top so the stuffed bag falls to the bottom of can. Finish stuffing and draw tight. You can see in the picture I use a carabiner clip to hang them to existing rope loops.

Successfully slows down eating
Not sure I think this one is any easier to load than other hay nets, but it definitely forces my horse to eat slower!

New hay net is much improved!
I was so happy to see a redesigned small hole hay net. It holds plenty of hay and is very easy to fill.
