Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous product! We own a boarding barn and noticed alot of wasted hay.. We tried alot of different products before yours. We were in search of a better way to supply our horses with hay and minimize waste when we came across your product. We had seen similar products in some of the horse supply stores and they didn't look they would be durable enough to last a season. We ordered your product and were pleasantly surprised at the quality and durability. Our hay wastage has gone down from almost 1/4 bale/day to almost nothing! The bags are durable and made of heavy materials. They stay open for you and are easy to fill and have velcro closures on both sides and sturdy hanging eyes. We would highly recommend this product to all your customers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Less time stuffing! This is the easiest hay net to fill. The mouth stays open and there’s room for at least 4 flakes so I don’t have to fill it so often. And the beautiful teal color makes me smile as I work!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Order a size up, lasts for 6 mos I want to give this 5 stars, it’s a good buy for the price, but it needs to be replaced after 6 mos. The metal at the top of the bag/net will eventually pops out and can poke so be careful when that happens and pull it out. Our barn has bought several and it lasts for 6 mos on average. We now use the slow feed nets or Professional Choice makes the best version (we’ve found) for slow feed hay bags. Also, whatever you feed, order a size up. It’s hard to get 2 flakes of Bermuda in the small bag.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not safe if you have two crazy TBs I bought four of these. 2 small and 2 large ones for my boys. I love the concept but they did not hold up and the metal from the top came out and I had to pull it out before they ripped their faces off with it. Not happy with it, great concept like I said, but I went back to the original haynets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for My schedule has gone squewed, so unfortunately I have do give night hay earlier than I would like. These hay bags have set my mind at ease because they are just the right size, are easy to fill and hand, and also are durable and safe. You can really load the hay into these bags, they can handle it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my horse! I have been using this hay feeder for a few years I have a couple of others from other manufacturers but this one is the most durable and holds just the right amount with just the right size holes for my horse. Thanks

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sturdy Seems sturdy and easy to fill but doesn’t slow them down much. Hopefully it lasts a long time to justify the cost

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everyone's Favorite! I bought three of these hay bags for my horse trailer. I only have one I usually haul but frequently take other with me, so they are welcome to use my hay bags. Every single person has LOVED the ease of use of these hay bags! The color is still bright and cute and they hold just enough hay to keep the horses satisfied on the trip without taking up too much head room. I will be purchasing at least one of the larger, 4 flake bags for overnight show use as I just love these so much!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great hay bag. Just bought my 4th one. I love the design. I was super excited to buy the coral reef version too. But I was disappointed in that it is much more a light neon orange. I have the coral reef pad that I do like. I'll end up keeping it since it doesn't have free returns, but it is very bright.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Only Fits One Flake I really wanted to love this hay net, but it really only fits one flake of hay (with some effort). It does seem to be made of very durable material, but the wire in the top also starts to warp quite quickly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A big flaw in this great bag... A friend uses these bags and I had to have one. I managed to score the large one on sale. Yay, me! I use this one in rotation with other bags - two are Shires premium net bags from Dover, one is the Tough-1 bag similar to this, and two of the Weaver “briefcase” bags. The Shires net bags win for overall durability. The Tough-1 is awesome, but the metal clips/rings rust/break. The Weaver bags my horse hated with a passion and aren’t that durable. This bag is my favorite for loading, hanging, and use. I clip it up to a simple eye bolt and we are good to go! Except...last night I noticed the metal bar across the top has ripped through the nylon webbing that envelopes is. I expected the metal bar to get a bit wavy with use, but I didn’t expect it to come out the end, which is something the Weaver bags like to do after only a few uses. I’ve had this less than 4 months and it’s used a few times a week at most. My horse is not destructive or hard on things, so I’m uncertain as to what the issue is. Normally, SmartPak items are amazing. I’d thought this would be, as several friends rave about them. But, for even the sale cost, I’d think it should last more than @30-40 uses for 10 hrs a day inside a barn. I am bummed, but I’m going to ask about returning this one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Slow feeder hay net I’ve had a similar Smartpak haynet that lasted a few years. This is my second haynet with the smaller 1.5” holes. These nets are very durable and easy to fill. My old one had three rings that you could use to hang it with clips. I liked that design because it kept it more secure. The new design only has one ring and needs to be tethered down to keep it from flying everywhere. Overall it’s well made but I liked the older design better.
Date published: 2021-04-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my new favorite hay bags! After farm sitting multiple times for a friend who used this hay net for his horse, i was not impressed. My goal at home is filling nets less frequently, so the size limitation on these was frustrating to me. In winter, I either feed a round bale in a net or I pull off of round bale to fill the shires haylage bags which are HUGE and can fit an enormous amount of hay. However, I have horses as well as sheep, and the sheep are NOTORIOUS hay wasters- once it hits the ground it is never considered edible and turns into bedding, it drives me nuts. So this year when I happened to have a pony on stall rest and lambing season was looming over me, i decided to splurge on these and see what happened. I got the 4 flake size in 2" and 1.5" holes. So far I've used the 2"holes for the pony and the sheep and both seem to be working great. It is very easy for me to stuff efficiently since I'm not dealing with formed flakes, and with the pony in the stall I can overstuff since I hang it high enough that I don't worry about her reaching through the top. I can put about 9.5 pounds of hay in with a little effort and still close the velcro, I can force more in but it does get harder to close. I put less in for the sheep since they consume less, but I have to say the 1.5" holes are working GREAT for them. Much less waste. I also have a shires greedy feeder net which I believe has 1" or 1.25" holes- they don't take to that one as much and i feel like they don't eat enough with it. I do feel confident that my horses would eat fine from the 1.5" holes but haven't tried it yet. There is still some hay on the ground with the 2" holes but it is considerably less than with the string type nets. I will still continue to use the shires haylage nets for general feeding through the winter, due to their extra large capacity, but for any animals being kept near the barn where it is more convenient to refill hay nets more often, these will be my go- to! I do see an issue with my pony trying to flip the bag to get to the other side and bending up the gator mouth metal pieces, so I do hope they will hold up to that alright long term. My neighbor's horse didn't seem to try that trick. I do see the velcro getting filled with hay bits, but it hasn't been a problem yet, and my neighbor's bag still has some velcro action to it and it is a couple years old i think. I would suggest that smartpak redesign these hay nets to have a squared off/ shaped bottom to them, even filling with loose hay, I never get the corners filled. I also think having the 2 rings in the middle works great but it would be a brilliant addition to put a ring at either end of the top too so it could be secured to protect the metal in the top from excessive wear and abuse. I'd also love to see these in one size larger to fit more hay in them. And offering a 1" or 1.25" hole option would be awesome as well. I honestly don't think anyone is being slowed down with the 2" holes, and i don't think my sheep are slowed with the 1.5" holes, but the waste is definitely reduced. Overall I am happy enough with these to invest in a few of the smaller size in both hole sizes for use in the trailer and short trips when i don't need such a large meal available. It does add up though, these things are pricey... so i really hope they will last many years! Maybe Smartpak will consider offering a warranty on these like with their Ultimate blanket line, if they make them super durable and really stand behind them, I'd think they would be the most popular hay net out there! When something like a blanket or hay net comes with a warranty, it really does give a lot of reassurance that it is made to last and is worth the investment!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value Easy fill & easy to hang. And it lasts forever. This is a replacement but my other one lasted years a & years.
Date published: 2021-03-06
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Well made but flips around We have a horse (35 yo) who will make a huge mess in his stall with loose hay. We’re having trouble finding hay bags (they fix the problem) that he doesn’t destroy in a couple of weeks. This one is large and easy to fill, and it seems sturdy. The problem is the single loop in the center of the bag. He flips it all over the place, and when it turns around, he gets no hay because the back is solid(which is very helpful for filling it). We’re back to trying to find one with two hooks that is easy to fill and sturdy. This did not work. To be clear, I have no complaint with the quality of the bag, we just need for it to be more stable.
Date published: 2021-02-23
Rated 2 out of 5 by from So I have a variety of slow feed hay bags. This is the smallest. It fits maybe a flake, if you want to fit more, good luck. The velcro at the top I feel is unnecessary. It is well made. There is no dimension at the seams, which would be a plus if it was added. It is tough to get hay in. Next time I would order the biggest size, you dont always have to fill them up!
Date published: 2021-02-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The whole barn loves it I chose this hay bag because it looked sturdy enough to stand up to my big, hungry, crafty guy, who is currently on a diet. I worry that the little string bags are not tough enough for him. Our trainer has subsequently bought this same bag for her horse, because the staff told her it is so easy to load. I'm very happy with the product! I got the 1.5 inch holes, and it is working to slow down his eating.
Date published: 2021-02-21
Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my new favorites! I have tried a few different styles of hay bags and so far this might be my new favorite! I purchased the four flake bag with 1.5 inch holes. I would recommend getting the four flake bag as opposed to the two flake. It fits two flakes comfortably and could probably hold four, but you would have to shove them into it. When I first opened the bag it does appears huge. The bag is very easy to load, and I was able to hang it nicely with a utility strap purchased elsewhere. My horse likes it and it does slow him down quite a bit, but I would love for SmartPak to make the bag with smaller holes. Hopefully it holds up for a while!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good size Good size hold then 2 flakes I don’t have use 2 small one all my horse hays can fit in one
Date published: 2021-02-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are great hay bags! We board horses and right off the start decided no hay in wall racks or ground feeding. Purchased 4 of the smaller 2 flake bags over a year ago. Yes, they are a little tricky to load a full flake, but if you treat it like a pillowcase and get the flake started then shake it down loads right in. I can usually load another flake right next to the first. I don’t mind cramming hay in the bag, so we average three flakes in each bag. Just purchased one of the 4 flake bags and my husband raved about how easy it was to fill...so I just ordered 2 more! We run a short chain around 2 stall bars, through both loops and clip with carabiner to secure bags. My violent eater has a fun time with the small swing as he’s trying to rip out hay. These things are indestructible.
