Slow Feeding Benefits for Animals
Better for digestion as it slows down the amount animals can consume PER MINUTE but is FREE CHOICE and prevents bloat and colic.
Simulates grazing helping to release endorphins from chewing, which keeps hind gut bacterial flora happy and healthy.
Obese horses will eat less but still have access to food all day.
Alleviates the boredom and STRESS that can lead to ulcers, colic in horses, bloat in ruminants AND stops wood chewing, manure eating, etc.
No more bullying in the herd at feeding time. Calmer animals = happier herds!
Slow feeding regulates insulin levels for horses with metabolic syndrome.
Helps prevent choke in horses.
“The quality of these hay nets has gotten better and better. I have 12 of them. Its really handy to have all of them filled and then feedings are a snap, just clip the bag and done. If I need to go away for a weekend, I will hang several bags in different locations around the pen for amusement, and the horses are fed until I get home! Love these nets and Marie is pretty awesome too! Love to support local.”

"Easy to load, way less mess, my big OTTB chooses to eat out of the net over the loose hay provided."

"I have tried many brands of nets. My herd is made up of Fjords & I want them to have hay available 24/7, for the benefit of their health, but not cause founder from over-eating. Using the 1" hole nets with grass hay has proven marvellous!! I have the happiest horses! Handy Hay Nets are BY FAR the BEST hay net product, plus have the most sizes, colours etc to choose from AND are the best priced!"

"A friend told me about these. I have used tons of slow feed hay nets. These by far are my favourite. They are easy to fill, easy to use and look easy to keep clean. I got the medium bag so I can fill them up and toss them in the pasture to keep my kids busy for the day."

“I switched to a large HHN at the beginning of December. It gives me such peace of mind to know that my senior gelding has access to hay all night long, especially when the temps start dipping below zero. He’s maintaining weight beautifully and prefers to eat out of the net, even when loose hay is offered too! He still gets excited about his grain in the morning, but overall he seems much more content in his stall. Money very well spent, in my opinion!“

Why Handy Hay Nets?
They are affordable and hand made in Canada.
Our seams are hand *sewn, which makes them more flexible and longer lasting *compared to machine sewn seams.
They are easy to load and tie.
Our tie string comes in many colours, so each animal can have their own, (handy for barns or boarding facilities).
Our netting is made of strong soft nylon, which is very gentle on muzzles.
There aren't any knots on our bags for animals to grab or chew.
