Hay nets for horses

If you have been searching for the perfect haynet and at the perfect price then you are in the right place. The Equi Supermarket range features a variety of excellent haynets from the Elim-a-Net, Shires Equestrian, Weatherbeeta, Battle and Hayward and Bower collections. Our haynets are available in a variety of sizes to suit your needs and even in several fun and funky colours.

How to use a horse haynet?

Stable haynets can present a hazard to horses if not used correctly. It is easy for hooves to get tangled in the nets so take acre to hang the net well away from the floor but not so high that your horse has to strain in order to reach it. Horses feed naturally with their heads down and so reaching up for their food is uncomfortable for them. Tack can also become tangled in haynets so it is best if you remove halters before leaving your horse to feed. Our haynets are extremely durable but should be checked regularly for fraying and other damage.

Small Hole Haynets

Horses enjoy feeding throughout the day but this can make it hard to regulate their diet. Horses which consume too many calories will become overweight. This is where small hole haynets can really help. The nets have smaller holes making it harder for your horse to take feed. This will ensure that they consume calories at a slower rate.

What are they?

Also known as slow feed nets, these small hole hay nets are designed to force your horse to east slowly. They are often made from durable, hardwearing materials and will feature holes that are around 3.5cm to 5cm square. This is the ideal size for a horse to eat through.

Just as it is important for horses not to consume too much food it is equally vital that they eat regularly throughout the day. Their stomachs produces acids whether they are full or not, meaning that damage can be caused by the acids when stomachs do not contain foods to digest. With small hole haynets horses can consume food over a period of hours. They are a great investment if you have to leave your horse in the stable for long periods as they don't need to be filled up too often.

Small hole haynets are also a fabulous foil for boredom in the winter months. They also minimise wastage as your horse will not grab large portions of food only to drop some of it on the floor.

Thanks to Small Hole Hay Nets

A healthy, happy horse; all thanks to small hole hay nets. Making sure that your horse eats the right amount of food can be tricky. Horses are naturally inclined to nibble throughout the day which can lead to overeating. One of the easiest ways to help maintain a healthy diet and a healthy horse is with a small hole hay net.

How can they help?

Overeating can be a big problem for horses, not only does it often lead to weight gain but can also cause imbalances in their metabolism. In fact, horses that stand for hours without food and then binge on an over packed hay can be at risk from gastric ulcers. It is thought that the maximum amount of time that a horse should be left without food is 4 hours.

But why is this a problem?

In the wild, horses sleep for a maximum of 4 hours every day, the rest of their time is spent looking for food. Their digestive systems will produce acids whether the stomach is full or empty. This means that damage can occur unless they have food in there to digest.

Enter the small hole hay nets

Thanks to the size of its holes, a small hole hay net only allows a horse to take small amounts of food at a time. This means that the chances of overeating are reduced as well as keeping them eating over a longer period.

In addition, a haynet of this type doesn't need to be filled every few hours. Perfect for those horse owners who are always greeted by less than impressed, hungry horses when you get to the stables.

The nets are particularly useful during the winter months when you are likely to stable your horse for longer. The nets counter boredom by your horse something to nibble on but slowly.

Another great plus point of using these hay nets is that they cut down on wasted hay where horses grab large amounts and then drop it on the floor or over the stable door out of reach. This in turn reduces the amount you need to buy.

So just how long can they last?

Once a horse is used to using a small hole hay net it can supply food for up to 24 hours. Now that is pretty impressive.

Small hole hay nets could be the key to regulating your horse’s diet, foiling weight gain and keeping your horse occupied in the stable. Isn't it incredible how a simple change to a common accessory can make such a huge difference? It makes you wonder why it took so long for the idea to emerge! If you need a small hole hay net then we have a great selection here at Equi Supermarket.

We are confident that you will find the perfect haynet in the Equi supermarket range and at the right price. We also feature the excellent Shires Equestrian Hay Bag which minimises waste by neatly containing the hay whilst featuring a small opening from which the horse can feed. For every problem there is a solution!
