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.
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.
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!
