Overview

Why We Love This

The patented Free-Up Feeder is great for stall hay feeding and swings open to fill in less than 30 seconds! The metal Free-Up Feeder Frame measures 12" x 24" and features safe, rounded corners, plus a threaded locking nut. Open the nut to weave your Cinch Net onto the frame. Once the net is on the frame, turn the nut to close for additional safety and overall structural strength.

Ideal for: Large stables and streamlining chores. Use in stalls, trailers, lean-tos, turn outs, panels, fences or on barn walls. Works indoors or outdoors!

The Original (1 3/4") HEAVY DUTY opening size is good for more aggressive eaters and a larger herd. Also good for horses that haven't used a slow feed net before. It's great for slowing down horses that eat fast, are generally healthy, but waste too much hay.

The SF/Slow Feed (1 1/4") opening size is good for horses that doen't get enough exercise or are metabolic. Very easy keepers who have used slow feed nets before do well on this net level. Also works well as a pacifier for stall-bound horses.

The Hay Chix® Cinch Net Mini size 1 3/4"- Heavy Duty can serve as a replacement net.

Made in the USA.

The hay net should 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 nylon mesh is extremely durable and will not give under pressure. As a result, it’s important to ensure the hay net is safely secured and won’t become loose as the hay is consumed.
Favorite Features:
  • Easy to fill in less than 30 seconds!
  • 12" x 24" metal frame
  • Safe round edges
  • Threaded locking nut
  • Holds a 1/2 bale of hay
  • Equine quality, UV-treated DuPont fiber netting
  • 1 3/4" heavy duty - great for more aggressive eaters, horses not used to a slow feed net, or larger herds
  • 1 1/4" - great for easy keepers, horses getting minimum exercise, or metabolic conditions

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SOOO easy to load Takes no time or effort to load. I have been using Nibble Net brand and this one feeds slower than their smallest opening net.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Free-Up Feeder by Hay Chix At the Equine Affaire in MA this past fall I bought 2 of these feeders, recently I bought two more from Smartpak. ABSOLUTELY love them. I put them outside in my run in shed for 4 of my arab endurance horses and they are just perfect esp. for second cut hay. No waste whatsoever and the horses have more eat time...cannot say enough about these. I have also bought several of their hay bags. Hay Chix woman are super cool!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from does it's job This net is pretty easy once you figure out how to get the bar to lock and the hay net out of the way ... I have fed in hanging nets for 11 years , this year my neck has been bothering me . Go figure hanging a 10-15 pound hay net over my head to hook it .. this is very easy to stuff and slows down my chow hound mare ..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it Genius product! I board at a large facility and my groom loves this. Easy to refill, keeps my one horse from stepping on good hay and ruining it and then not eating it. Stall clean up is way easier and faster too. Haynet is filled for the evening with a couple flakes on the ground underneath. Horses are out all day. When they come in for evening, they eat flakes first and then have the nets to work on the rest of the nite. Works out great!
