Slow Feed Netting Explained

The Original 2” mesh is a great place to start feeding your horses. If your goal is to reduce waste but not necessarily your horse's waist line, then this is the net for you. Most horses do very well on this net, but may consume more than desired. This net is great for the following issues: Heaves, Choking, Colic prone horses, Reducing waste, Herd aggression, Hard keepers, Senior horses,  those with Ulcers. 

Slow Feed Netting (Slow Feed Extreme / Opening size: 1" Mesh) The Slow Feed Extreme is our second smallest mesh that we carry and should not be used when introducing a horse to slow feeding. We recommend that horse owners start with the 2” web then over the course of time wean their horse to the 1” mesh web. Horses that don't maintain a good weight using the Slow Feed should be transitioned to the 1”. It's great for the extreme cases of metabolic disorders, for horses that are on stall rest, or for sheep and goats.

Remember that if your horse or goat creates a hole in the net to tie it closed. It is recommended to look closely at the net every day to inspect it for any holes that your animal may get caught up in.

The Slow Feed 1” mesh size is great for slowing down the speed at which your animal consumes hay, making the ration last much longer. Please keep in mind that your animal may become irritated due to the size of the opening. They may start to bite and paw at the net to get at their feed. This net is the next step for animals that may be too “ efficient on the Original (2”") mesh size. This net is great for most metabolisms and offers all the benefits of the Original size with a few extras as well. This mesh size is great for:

  • Metabolically challenged horses, donkeys and mules 
  • Mini horses, burros, donkeys and mini-mules 
  • Any horses that need to be slowed down 
  • Horses that can't be "free-fed" (allowed access to unlimited hay) 

Always offer free choice hay along with your Slow Feed Net until your animals have learned to successfully graze from it.

A smaller 1 1/4" hole size, means extended eating times and less waste. Fits over a standard square bale. This slow feed hay net is designed especially for ponies or those easy keepers.

Advantages of the Slow Feed Netting System

  • Canadian-made, woven, knotless, UV protected,  Nylon netting
  • Regulates feed consumption - obese horses usually loose weight / thin horses normally gain weight
  • Less waste! Not only saves dollars, but time and space
  • Healthier feeding - slow delivery as opposed to the gorge and starve cycle which is hard on horses' systems.
  • Reduced maintenance - nets can hold days worth of food 
  • No more fighting over feed - it's always available
  • No specific feeding times for you to keep
  • Your horse will never be hungry and always ready to go


CAUTION: We would like to remind you that this Slow Feed Netting bag sometimes will get caught in the horses' shoes and or halter as well as blankets.  Please keep an eye on your horse should any of the above occur. Make sure the rope is not tied at the end. Leave the ends loose so that you do not create an opening in the rope that will get caught on your horse.

30 Day Manufacturer’s Warranty on hand sewn seams. Returns/Exchanges within 7 days for new, unused nets. Customer pays all shipping fees. For hygienic reasons, nets are non-returnable once used. Haynets are not indestructible and we cannot control the animal eating from the net. Warranty does not cover damage caused by use, including chew holes or tears in the mesh.

The mesh is not metal and can therefore be torn or chewed, horses are livestock and may chew thru the mesh if not transitioned properly or various other reasons. We do not warranty the mesh/netting, only the craftsmanship of the seams. There is an inherent risk in the purchase and use of these products.
