As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Why We Love This

Feed your hay smarter with the SmartPak Small Hole Hay Net! With smaller openings than an average hay net, this hay net restricts access to the hay inside so your horse will slow down and enjoy his hay longer, and you'll have a whole lot less waste. Ideal for travel, as you'll have to fill up less frequently, and your horse won't leave as much behind. Also great for horses who need limited access for dietary reasons.

Favorite Features

  • NEW design, 2x wider opening to make loading hay a breeze!
  • 42" Diameter
  • 3 1/2 cm holes for restricted access to hay

SmartPak Small Hole Hay Net is rated 4.370526315789474 out of 5 by 475.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Hay-Net, Not a Slow Feeder This is a very nice hay net, however, I would not consider this a slow feeder as the holes are quite large. We bought two of these hay nets for our two geldings, who are both extremely rough on anything and everything. Surprisingly, the hay nets have lasted us about 7-8 months of every day wear and tear, now they both have tears in them and will need to be replaced.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not small enough No complaints with the hay net quality, but the holes are not as small as I thought. I need smaller.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seems sturdy, hard to fill The material it is made of seems pretty tough. It's a little hard to fill because it's stiff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from hay net The hay net is working well for my mini donkey and my sheep. yes a sheep it has kept her from sleeping,standing peeing or pooping on the hay and significantly reduced hay waste.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broke after the first use I bought this haynet a couple of weeks ago and it is my first time using it today. It looks super nice and I was excited about it but one of the holes broke within an hour of use. Very disappointed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from not a slow feeder The holes in this "Slow Feeder" are 2" thats to big in my opinion. Other than that no complaints so far.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from SmartPac Small hole hay net A good bag overall in quality, though I would prefer a smaller size
Date published: 2016-03-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easiest Net to Load! I use these as replacement nets for my collapsible hoop hay feeders. The holes are small enough to slow them down and helps eliminate waste. The large opening on this net makes it the easiest net to load that I've ever used. I can fit 4 solid flakes in it really easily.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just the right size and easy to fill. Been using the Small Hole Hay Net for about three weeks, and love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used these for years now I have used this net ever since my horse was put on stall rest years ago. She needed an entire bale of hay a day, split into two feedings. Problem was shed Hoover up her half of a bale in less than two hours! Enter this hay net- perfect solution. Slow grazing all day long between her grain feedings. And trust me I know how long it took her to get through it since I stayed with her 18 hours a day every day for a year.I now use these nets exclusively (except for the mini pony, who could probably fit in this net!). I have never been dissatisfied until this last order i received. Net was destroyed within 3 months when normally they last at least 6. The net I ordered before this last one survived for A YEAR.I LOVE this net. I still ordered new owned despite the 3 month life of the last hay net. It keeps the ravenous beasts slow and they can last half a day for my girls, if the net is filled properly.I hope the quality goes back up, or maybe I just got a bad one. These nets are great despite what happened to my last one. I couldn't say enough nice things about them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not as durable as I would have hoped. One part had the strings tied together like they forgot to knot it properly so I had two ends sticking out my horse could easily grab. She's already chewed through one square in less than two months. I use this net in rotation with two others (not from SmartPak) for night time feeding. The other nets have held up better. Not a bad hay net, just not the greatest.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Small holes are great - Durability, not so much I had this out for a few days with my gelding who wants to eat everything in sight; apparently, that also means chewing holes in the corners of the bag. I think I will need to try one without corners and see if it lasts longer. I do love the small holes, though - perhaps the frustration from them, though, is what led to him chewing on the bag rather than his feed. while it doesn't work for my horse as well as I would like, I believe it may work for others and I would recommend this bag for its price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome small hole hay net Perfect hay net for my easy keeper/fast eater. This slows him down a bit and keeps him entertained. I use it everyday, feeding 3x/day and it has held up very well.
Date published: 2016-01-26
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Barn Must Have! I use this haynet everyday for my mare. I hang it in her stall at night to minimize the amount of hay she throws around her stall and then won't eat. And then I use it in her turnout paddock so she has something to nibble on while she's out, and it keeps the hay nice even in snow/slush/mud. The small hole net is wonderful because it doesn't let much hay fall out and make a mess. The only negative I've found is that the twine of the net isn't the hardiest and starts to separate after a little while.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these hay bags. Bought these a couple months ago and I really like them. They are made stronger than some of the others I've used & the holes are smaller so it keeps them occupied longer. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best hay net out there, hooves down! I have a very easy keeper, who thinks he is starving all of the time. I bought this hay net to extend his munching time. I love this hay net! The wider opening really helps in loading hay into, its a breeze! The longer rope allows me to tie it off a rail and best of all, my horse has to concentrate on eating instead of being a vacuum. He doesn't appear to be in "starvation" mode at feeding time. Hooves down, love this product!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the work This one has openings really too small for my horse to stick his foot in, which he was doing on a regular basis before. Seems strong enough to last for 2 days, we'll see how it fares long term.
Date published: 2016-01-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect amount of hay, you can also load less if y This is the 2nd set of hay nets I have purchased, the 1st set was around 3 years ago, so they last plenty long. I prefer to leave hay for my horses, but don't want them to eat too fast!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Small hole hay bag Hay bag is durable but I hoped it would slow my mares eating down and it did not
Date published: 2016-01-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Work great, last longer. Just hung these up on my fence mounted metal hay bag holders (sorry don't remember name ) but they fit great and hold up longer than the less expensive ones. I had bought one before the sale to test it out and it has held up at least twice as long as the less expensive ones. Worth the extra couple bucks.
Date published: 2016-01-02
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Durability I'm a little disappointed; the horse has been able to rip/enlarge the openings rather easily and I have had to repair the net 4/5 times already. It holds a good amount of hay though and is relatively easy to fill. In a pinch, I would recommend this product while pursuing other alternatives.
Date published: 2016-01-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect purchase for my boys recovery After impaction surgery introducing hay super slowly back to my boy. Needed a way to slow done how quickly he loves to eat his hay and this works perfectly. A flake takes him 3 hours to nibble through.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent to slow down the consumption of hay and to keep it off the ground
Date published: 2016-01-01
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Saves Hay Waste This hay net does prevent waste of hay being pulled out and put on the floor but my horse gets rather frustrated because he can't get the hay out and then gets really unsettled. It is a good product, just realize what you are getting into and that your horse may get frustrated with not being able to get more than a string of hay at a time.
Date published: 2015-12-31
Rated 3 out of 5 by from The quality is lacking, and it looks like it will fray easily.
Date published: 2015-12-29
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Haysaver This is a great hay net for the trailer, greatly reducing the amount of hay ending up on the floor!
Date published: 2015-12-28
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Loved at first, but the honeymoon wore off These are easy to fill and hold a good amount of hay. I loved that the openings were much smaller than the standard 2"x2". This really slowed my mares down....until the nets started falling apart. The nylon frays and breaks, the knots come undone, and the next thing you know, there is a perfectly sized hole that their entire muzzle fits though.I spent a lot of time doing patch work with baling twine, but I'm replacing these as soon as I can.
Date published: 2015-12-22
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great net! I bought these nets to help eliminate a mess on the ground, they are great! It take 5-6 hours for the horses to eat what used to take half hour. I would highly recommend this product.
Date published: 2015-12-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite I now have 5 of these so I can preload them. I think 1 time a knot came out but just retied. I use a carabiner or clip to loop around a post. Holds plenty of hay, several flakes. I drape it over a garbage can & it holds the opening so I can load at ease. Love these.
Date published: 2015-12-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My kind of hay net This net is big enough to hold 2-3 flakes of my hay and has a sturdy draw rope. I like a "flat" bottom like this one has instead of a ring at the bottom. I liked it well enough that I'm buying another. I just wish there were other color choices besides black.
