Another trickle net fan. Yes they are more expensive to purchase, but you only need one per horse, there is no fiddling about with double/triple netting. It takes them 2-3 times as long to eat half the amount of hay, and because of the work involved in getting the hay out they clear up what gets dropped on the floor.
I honestly think I’ve saved at least the cost of each haynet in hay which hasn’t got wasted on the floor already this winter. Plus no balancing between over feeding horses and leaving them without food, no battling with layering nets either! I’m completely sold. One of mine just chews right through haynets too and I’ve had these since about March, and they all still look brand new, even with the chewer.
All in between the lack of wastage, the reduced amount of hay they are consuming and the fact I don’t have to keep purchasing new nets for the chewer I’ve saved at least double what I spent purchasing them already. hold of, and there’s fine string like haylage netting over the hole so difficult to get hay out of too!
