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 4.378555798687089 out of 5 by 457.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good start I bought this a month ago my 5 yr old has chewed through a few holes already but easy fix tie a few knots and your good to go. I think this is a good start to slowing down your horses eating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nicest hay net I ever owned! Well, I have to admit, both my horses are alittle too chubby (hubby & I call them fluffy!) So a slow feeder hay net for turn out is a must. It takes them alot longer to go through their hay during the day. Now we have to be patient, cut down on goodies, and see if their diets do the trick!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy I made this purchase This hay net is easy to fill and tie up in the trailer. Helps keep them nibbling on the hay instead of scattering it everywhere. Seems durable and strong. Good value.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far, so good. I bought this for horse shows. It seems to be safe and working well, but I still prefer the old cotton ones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this HAY BAG!!! Very nice roomy hay bag with easy open top for filling. Extra strong cords for netting. Now have 5 and they are the best thing ever at my barn!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is really a great product. I bought this product a couple of months ago and it is has been terrific. It really slows my mare down in her hay eating, and cuts WAY down on waste, as she was the queen of wasting hay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect slow feed size for miniature horses Just right for miniature horses and high quality !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these! We have bought a few of these. Love them for travel or slowing the ponies down from mowing through hay quickly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from useless First let me say that I have had MANY wonderful products from SmartPac so no reflection on them! This hay bag did not even last 1 hour!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this. It slows my fat horses down. So the hay can last longer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good purchase! It does what you said it would. It slows them down. Just wish it wasn't so hard to fill.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice net for the price. I bought this net to replace the net on my free up feeder. The net is a good size and fits on the existing holder that I have, the holes are small enough to slow my horse down. I've only been using the net for a few weeks so I can't say whether its going to hold up in the long run. I also would prefer that this net was cotton rather than nylon but this was a sufficient replacement at a reasonable price.

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.
Date published: 2016-02-27
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.
Date published: 2016-01-24
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!!
Date published: 2016-01-17
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!
