For horses (1000lb +) you’ll have to refill this bag approximately every 4 days. Works great for larger herds of small farm animals and will reduce your workload. Refill just once a week, (depending on the size of the herd).

Note how to load: You will need to bring your 2 bales to the location you wish to use this bag. Simply put your 2 bales standing up and slip the bag over, tie and push it over. Voila!

Choosing the right bag

When choosing a slow feeder hay bag for your animals, remember that in small groups, herds or flocks, you may need to assess the dynamics to determine the ideal number of bags.

When 2 horses share the same space at all times, we recommend 3 bags. Having the extra bag will encourage movement and will eliminate stress caused by bullying from the dominant animal. This applies mostly to the use of the smaller hay bags (Small Bag size up to the Bale Bag size), but you can always use a variety of bags in an enclosure.
