Overview

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. Made from poly rope, this is a durable and long-lasting hay net.

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:
  • NEW design, 2x wider opening to make loading hay a breeze!
  • 42" Diameter
  • 1.5" holes for restricted access to hay
  • STILL HAVE QUESTIONS? SEE Q&A
  • 100% Happiness Guarantee

Reviews
SmartPak Small Hole Hay Net is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 590.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Well made but hole size not as described. I ordered 3 of these hay nets for my horses. I specifically picked these because they said the holes were 3 1/2”. Well I took that as 3 1/2 inches, but apparently it meant centimeters. These holes are way tinier than what I expected. Otherwise they seem well made. I just can’t use them.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Maybe changed manufacturer? I've had two of these- my first one lasted me 2 1/2 years with fairly regular use before it finally got a hole torn in it. The second one only lasted about a week! I don't know if smartpak switched manufacturers between when I last bought one and now, or if that one was just faulty, but it was disappointing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Did not last very long This did a great job slowing my mare down on her hay eating, so much so that she had to bite at the hay so hard that she inadvertently tore through the strands of the net in several places, creating much bigger holes that I had to repair with zip ties. I think this would work well for a less aggressive hay eater, but I had to toss it and get the smartpak slow feed hay bag instead.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I have many of these so can prep for feed time and they work very well
Date published: 2021-01-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these! I use a mix of these and the nylon net bags. These are super easy to fill as they fit in a muck bucket perfectly with the top folder over the edges. I prefer these for ease of use but I think the others hold up better.
Date published: 2021-01-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Got this hay net to keep my mare who needs to mostly be in her stall busy and it works very well! I really like that it comes in dark green as well!
Date published: 2020-12-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from small feed hay net this is my 2nd small hole hay net, these nets are easy to fill and hold enough hay to sustain feeding for hours
Date published: 2020-11-26
Rated 1 out of 5 by from 2 Huge holes made in net after 1 night. My very fat large pony has discovered he can cut the "net" with his teeth. This was a re-order, but first net lasted 3 months. Will have to move up in quality.
Date published: 2020-11-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice size Great size and quality for price. I would definitely recommend them!
Date published: 2020-10-27
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Only bought again due to sale price These nets are decently priced when on sale, but they do not seem to last as long as other brands have with my horses. They get holes in them and will repair them with twine until there is no further use in trying.
Date published: 2020-08-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best net yet!! I bought this net just about a month ago. I have been through them all!! I spent big money on a big bag that probably is best used in a trailer & not for everyday. This bag is the bomb! The horses slow down, small pieces can fall to the ground, and it's durable. The opening is larger than you would expect and you can easily fit it over 2 flakes of hay.
Date published: 2020-07-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite hay net! I have tried MANY different slow feed hay nets over the years, and always come back to this one! They last forever and my horses are HARD on them, and easy to fill and hang anywhere you want!
Date published: 2020-05-21
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pink and blue, pretty and useful ! Opens and closes easily, fits and average amount of hay Yet to find out how long it takes for holes to appear
Date published: 2020-04-21
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Flimsy Its really only good for feeding in a horse trailer. My horse chewed through it in 4 days. I bought extra for gifts, how embarassing.
Date published: 2019-10-30
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not a slow feeder hay net Bought this to replace the awesome shire slow feeder hay nets I got on SmartPak because they are no longer available at SmartPak but the holes in this hay net are too big. It is not the size advertised. I am currently double bagging the hay with these hay nets and the shire slow feeder hay nets. The hay lasts them all day now but I would prefer it be one hay bag.
Date published: 2019-10-07
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not happy I bought 6 of these 2 of them already have holes in them less then a week of use
Date published: 2019-09-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great colors! I bought one in every color! Love the colors and functionality of this hay net. Durable.
Date published: 2019-05-16
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Didn’t hold up to minimal use I purchased two of these bags a while back and was very impressed with them at first. I only ever used one of them in the trailer and had the other as back up. I started using the second one with my laid back gelding and within two uses there are several rips in the net. I’m hoping I just received a faulty product as the other is still holding up quite well. Attached is a photo after two brief uses at horse shows.
Date published: 2019-02-27
Rated 2 out of 5 by from A little disappointed... I bought two of these about a month ago. Just refilling one now and found three busted spots.
Date published: 2018-11-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I love this hay nets! They really slow the horse down. They can fit about four flakes of our 60% alfalfa 40% grass hay. I have had my oldest one for about two years now. It has no signs of wear. I just wish it came in teal/turquoise!
Date published: 2018-09-22
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect size! Works great to encourage a more natural "grazing" for a very easy keeper. Size is great! Can pack it full and it lasts all day or all night. So far has been fairly durable for a horse that's hard on things.
Date published: 2018-05-25
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horse destroyed it This bag did not last more then a week, the horse destroyed it.
Date published: 2018-05-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from NICE SIZE I like the size of the bag, both in the size of holes and the amount of hay that fits in the bag
Date published: 2018-05-07
Rated 1 out of 5 by from The diameter was not big enough. Had to return. Very frustrating. I have bought many ultra slow hay bags. All of them could slip over a hay bale, and hold 1/2 bale. This bag was way too small. Had to ship back and PAY for shipping. Afraid to buy anything else.
Date published: 2018-05-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to fill and hang Love this hay bag. The opening is large and I can fit it around my plastic tub to hold it open and fill. Holes are small enough that the horse has to work for it but not so small the horse gets frustrated. Love the color choices. I purchased 2 and if the need arises I'd order more.
Date published: 2018-05-02
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well made bag Well constructed. Has lasted so far. Wish it was a little more flexible but not a huge issue
Date published: 2018-04-27
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Holds up well I use these with my hay hoop net holders and they hold up well. I have some aggressive eaters and these make it about 6 months without holes.
Date published: 2018-04-09
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Exceptional! Holding up very well. Needed a net to soak hay and prevent my mare from burying her nose in the hay. This serves the purpose perfectly. It's getting daily, hard use and holding up well. My only aggravation is the net is hard to fill even after 3 weeks use. Due to the close knit it isn't as loose as other nets. It doesn't stay stretched open to fill.
Date published: 2018-03-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bags for the price I have been using restrictive hay bags for many years before they became popular and have tried many different brands I can say this bags are the best quality for their price. I have bags that have lasts 3 years before they start to wear.
Date published: 2018-03-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best hay net on the market! I have experimented with quite a few different styles of hay nets and I have been using this one for about 2 years now. Its my favorite, great price point, and good quality. The holes on this hay net are not to small they are a perfect size, they slow your horse down but don't make it impossible to eat. Also love that I can fit about 6 flakes of hay in this net!
