Why We Love This

The Deluxe Top Load Hay Bag is extra large, making it easy to load and allowing your horse convenient access to hay.


*Hay nets and bags should always be hung at a sufficient height to avoid the risk of entanglement. To withstand the pulling and chewing associated with a hay net in use, the materials are extremely durable and will not give under pressure. As a result, it’s important to ensure hay nets and bags are safely secured and won’t become loose as the hay is consumed.
Favorite Features
  • Easy-to-fill
  • Hook-&-loop top closure to prevent hay from being pulled out of the top
  • Long adjustable strap with snap to make it easy to hang almost anywhere
  • Durable poly front and back
  • Mesh bottom for ventilation


18” deep, 24” long, 9” wide.
Fits up to 4 average sized flakes of hay.

    Deluxe Top Load Hay Bag is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 105.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I hung it up on the outside of a run in shed. He loves it! It very convenient and easy to fill.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bag, very pleased with it Bought this to take on a trip to a 4 day clinic feeding an alfalfa mix hay, it worked well as with a traditional hay net a lot of the hay would normally filter to the stall floor, so less waste. Easy to fill, sturdy construction.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Convenient and perfet for stall use I am happy with how the bag is working for my pregant mare. It allows her to eat large mouthfulls of (which she is happy with!) while preventing her from wasting hay. Although two of the small metal rings that attach the handles to bag broke off that was easily fixed with bailers twine.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not durable I bought 4 of these bags for use in my stalls a week ago and I am already down to one. All were hung at chest height or above, and I had Nibblenets in the exact same location with no issue for 4 years straight. One young horse managed to get her leg into an opening (not sure how she pawed that high?) Another mare pulled down on hers and the metal ring ripped right out of the nylon loop and ripped it. It also ripped all the way down the side of the bag too. In the third case, the horse also pulled on it somehow, got the velcro flap opened up, and the bar that gives stability to the top opening snapped in two, even though the bag itself was still intact and hanging fine. I don't think these bags were meant for big horses in a loose box stall or paddock. Maybe in a trailer where they can't move it around or rip it? Very dissapointing in the quality, and it would be better if the holes for hay were smaller to prevent an over exuberant young hoof from going through. Back to Nibblenets for me! I should have known that you get what you pay for.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from love love love These are great!!!! So easy to fill and carry! They hold about 3 flakes. So much easier to fill than old fashioned hay nets. They seem to be pretty sturdy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wastes less hay! I bought these for use in the trailer. They are a little bit cumbersome to use as I intended, but I made it work. They seem well made and sturdy. I really like the design, as it is easy to load hay into, and the squares are small enough that there is less wasted hay that drops while they are eating.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to load - easy to eat from Love this hay bag! Tried one and am now ordering another. It's easy to load up and really keeps the hay from being tromped on and wasted. The Velcro is very strong and durable.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple, convenient, and easy to use. I have seen others at my barn use traditional hay nets which tend to be a pain to fill. I really like the design of this product. It is easy to fill with several flakes of hay. Also, my horse has no trouble eating from it.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Durable The haybag lasted all of 10 days. I purchased it to be used as a daily feed bag to keep hay off the floor of an 'enthusiastic' eater. material did not hold up to the job. Back to Roma brand. Sorry.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy with product Allows for my horse to eat hay in turn out and in stall keeping the hay off the ground and slowing down her eating
    Date published: 2015-10-03
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Well made, easy to use, good value. I have used this hay bag in my horse's stall and in the trailer and it is exactly what I had hoped it would be. Definitely recommend.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Use Caution! I loved this hay bag when I bought it as my horse is a slob. I hung it just as the pictures had shown ( even a little higher). We had it less than a week and my 27 yr old horse got his foot caught on the bag and nearly broke his leg trying to free himself and ripped his shoe off in the process. Luckily I have great barn staff who witnessed the incident and were able to free him. Now he is sore and has a giant chunk missing from his foot. This thing needs quick release clips or something so that this doesn't happen! I will absolutely not be using this product ever again for any of my horses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easily bored, mouthy, easy keeper loves it! My horse is what the title says. He loves eating more than anything and he loves to chew on things around the stall. I could never before hang a halter out of his stall or he'd have his head through and chewing it. Hence my purchase history of two leather halters in less than a year lol. This bag holds up to his destructive ways! Also, if I take this hay bag or any other hay bag away, he will not eat the hay on the ground and just reach for look for it. This is great for the busy horse. I also bought the small hole hay net by Smartpak because I didn't know if this would restrict his quick eating enough. It does! I use it with orchard grass hay right now and it holds four flakes very well with minimal fallout. It expands at the top and is much easier to fill than the small hay nets (which I still like btw). This one looks prettier too ;)

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not good at all. Should be more for a short travel I ordered a slow feed bag and this is what they sent. Not at all slow feed. Was ripped in 4 days
    Date published: 2015-05-22
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for the horse show! My horse tends to get nervous at horse shows. I usually like him to eat the hay from the ground, but he tosses it about in the stall at shows. I bought this for the last horse show and it was perfect for his stall. Easy to hang, easy to fill with adequate hay, and easy for him to eat out of (without having the work like with a slow feed hay net). He ate more hay and was able to settle in better at the show.
    Date published: 2015-05-05
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality! What a great hay bag. The quality for the price was extremely better than I expected. It holds a good amount of hay. It was one of those purchases, I was sure glad I made once it arrived. Ordering a second one for travel days so it will be packed in the trailer.
    Date published: 2015-05-05
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Needs work for 5 stars Had to replace two of the attaching rings and clips after less than 2 weeks of use. If the bag had these 3/8" clips which I purchased at the hardware store $2.29 ea the bag would be 5 stars

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy, easy to use Love this bag. It's my second one. Doesn't slow a hungry eater down but it's perfect for keeping most the hay off the floor which is my goal :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great feature Love this product..I use it in the paddock during turnout to keep the hay contained. Ponies love pulling hay out of bag and keeps the paddocks neat especially during a windy day
    Date published: 2015-02-03
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well constructed, well designed hay bag I needed a replacement for old worn-out wide-mouthed hay bags that held 3-4 flakes each... others I'd tried held only half that. I was hesitant about trying this one, but am so glad I did. It's built off a well-thought out idea with double straps that can be configured an endless # of ways to fasten the hay bag wherever you need it... and I sling it over my shoulder or cross-body if I'm carrying multiple things to a stall. The way the top closes is particularly well-designed... kind of like a wide mouthed purse that both "magnet snaps" and has a fold over fastener... but just to be clear, there are no magnets on the hay bag, it's all Velcro... but very sturdy Velcro. It is not a slow feeder design, the 8 openings are not designed to slow a hungry pony down, but the design works out great for my OTTBs who need all the hay I can get into them, lol. I think, unless you REALLY NEED a slow feeder hay bag, this is definitely a product to consider.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought this for winter when my horse wastes a lot underfoot in the mud. So far, seems very well made, easy to fill. Two flakes very easy to accommodate
    Date published: 2015-01-08
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to load My horse likes this feeder because he can pull hay from it easily. The barn owner thinks he pulls out too much and hay still gets wasted. But with a small hole bag my horse lost weight and became anxious, so for me this bag is much better.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to fill, seems durable Got it to keep my horse from wasting hay, and it's doing the job. It's easy to fill, and it looks like it'll last. We have it hung with a couple of snaps to 2 screw eyes in the wall so it stays in place.
