Overview

Why We Love This

The only Slow Feed Hay Bag your barn will ever need! This innovative hay bag is our most durable slow feeding option and has special features to make loading hay fast and easy, and to ensure the bag stays closed as your horse eats. The flexible gator mouth holds its shape so loading hay has never been simpler! Added hook and loop at the closure means even the craftiest horses will find it impossible to open, ensuring their hay lasts as long as possible. This bag comfortably fits 10-15lbs of hay, so your horse will be happily munching all day long! A great choice for slowing down easy keepers, keeping stall-bound horses entertained, and for providing more continuous forage throughout the day to horses prone to gastric upset.

Imported.

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:

  • Extremely durable hardware will stand up to rough horseplay 
  • Gator mouth closure makes loading hay a breeze
  • Available in different sizes and with different sized holes to customize to your horse's needs
  • Hook and loop closure keeps crafty horses from opening the bag from the top

SmartPak Slow Feed Hay Bag is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 586.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality Bag was sturdy and very well made. Unfortunately it was too large to use in my trailer so i had to return it. I just measured incorrectly. Wish there was a bit smaller size

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use hay net These hay nets are easy to fill and hang. The large really does hold 3-4 flakes. Have had them for about a month and my horses have yet to destroy them. The metal “gator” mouth does bend but it is easy reshaped back to it’s original shape.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the size and durability of this hay bag I purchased approximately 3-4 weeks ago....Stan (my horse) needs stall rest for a month/or two....I was worried about him getting bored so someone suggested a hay bag, it would take him longer to consume hay and not get so bored in his stall. This bag is 'PERFECT' for this situation. I am so happy that it is holding up as well (Stan's a chewer). I have recommended this hay bag to my sister-in-law who has 2 horses that gain weight breathing 'air'! LOL

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Horse Loves Her Hay Bag! Finally!! No more shavings in my horse's hay! I needed a durable hay bag so my mare can eat all day and this is the best one. She absolutely loves it! There will be hay on the ground but she goes straight for her hay bag, I guess it tastes better! I was so over manipulating the regular net hay bags, these hay bags makes it easy. The metal opening keeps the bag from closing on me and its durable nylon openings are sturdy! I can perfectly fit 2 flakes in the smaller-sized hay bag. This is the perfect addition to my mare's stall and keeps her hay up off the ground and tidy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very durable Bought one of these for my gelding. He was notorious for destroying hay nets but so far this one is holding up well. He has abused it all day every day for a year and a half. No rips or tears, no loose stitching, and the rings still look like new. The only con is I bought a light color and it gets dirty quick. This was a great buy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect hay net for stalls or paddock I used these nets originally when I was boarding to have an option to throw extra hay to my horse. I have now purchased a farmette and I use these for all the horses in their stalls. I like to use these nets to slow the rate of hay consumption (some use the 2”, others use the 1.5”). While it does allow some hay to fall through onto the ground, I believe it greatly reduces the amount of hay that gets wasted if I were to ground feed. This keeps my spreader, dumpster, and pocket book much happier. I can fit anywhere between 4-6 flakes, depending on how the bale was cut. I find that I prefer to put in a flake at a time and fluff them up to get them out of the “flake” shape. Then I compress the hay in as I fill it. I make sure to push hay down into the corners as I’m filling so that I can maximize the use of the bag. It’s very important to note that if you want to Velcro the top, don’t fill it to the absolute top. Also, it might be tempting to fold the ends of the net to help secure the Velcro, but that will lead to the inner wire eventually tearing the seams and you’re left with a dangerous hay net. Instead, fill it approx 90% full (to the point where you could probably stuff a little more in - but don’t do it), and then make sure you hang both center rings on your clip/strap. If you hang it high enough, the horse isn’t too likely to pull open the top. Be careful hanging it too low because like any hay net, it can become a hazard to a horse rolling or pawing: they could put a hoof in it. I did have this happen with a rambunctious horse, and I’m happy to say that the back just tore perfectly at the seam and nobody was hurt (except for the poor bag of course). They are fairly durable, so if your clip fails, or you have a horse who figures out how to pull it down, it’s not going to get trashed. They can definitely take some abuse. They do tend to lose shape when they hang empty and it does look kind of ugly. Since I’ve stopped folding over the Velcro ends on all the new ones, the shape plumps up again when I refill the nets. I also use these in the paddocks in the winter to offer forage when the snow and ice takes over the field. They have all survived life in the elements; the color does fade if they stay out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Feed all our hay in these bags Metal in top eventually works out of the fabric - don’t really think it’s necessary - would be better without it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the price I bought cheaper hay bags that had bigger holes and they ripped within a few weeks. So I decided to spend the money for nice ones. With the memorial day sale I got them for $40 for the big ones, very easily put 4 flakes in and the 2 inch doesn't slow my boys down too much. I use it in the trailer and in the stall to prevent waste for my ottb. They are built very sturdy and seem durable.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Love the design but do not find it durable. I bought this bag some time ago and my previous horse managed to dislodge one of the bendable rods. I attempted repair but to no avail. She retired to pasture and the net to my garage. Enter my new horse who has managed to tear and dislodge the remaining bendable rod scratching his face near his eye. I took it out and I am still using it but an enthusiastic horse has been able to tear many of the fabric pieces. I have weaved it with hay twine but I am on the lookout for a different product. If you have a passive horse this product will be fine. My hungry hippos destroyed it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Quality - Smaller Size is SMALL This is a nicely-made hay net and I'm happy to find it in 1 1/2 inch hole size. Just know that the 'two flake' size is unlikely to fit two flakes of any reasonable hay variety. One will fit, probably. Am sending back the smaller-sized one and exchanging for the 'four flake' version.
