In the winter months salt can help increase water consumption encouraging horses to drink, while in the summer months salt can help replace what is lost via perspiration. During the summer months the amount of salt required will increase with the heat, humidity and level of exercise.

Symptoms associated with inadequate sodium and chloride intake may include; decreased feed intake – weight loss – muscle weakness – decreased milk production – constipation – decreased skin turgor (skin stays tented when pinched) – licking objects – uncoordinated muscle contractions

The best way to be sure your horse gets enough sodium is to feed loose salt mixed with a hard feed dampened down. Its also handy to keep a salt block available for added supplementation should your horse want more. If you are unsure just how much salt your horse requires for their environment and level of activity, consult a qualified nutritionist or speak to your vet.

 Netting hole sizes
3cm Netting
Is your horse a pro at using a slow feeder? Do you find the traditional 4cm netting is just not quite small enough? Do you have laminitic ponies, own mini’s or feed out top quality leafy hay?
3cm x 3cm netting is recommended for animals who are experienced with using slow feed hay nets. Also great for use with mini’s, goats, sheep etc. This size netting is best used with high quality leafy hay, the type of hay your horse/animals usually eat fast. Be mindful though, that some horses may be frustrated by this size if they aren’t conditioned to using a slow feed hay net. Others are happy to graze from the net straight away with no worries. Our 3cm netting range is available in 48ply netting, black in colour.
4cm Netting
Are you looking for a hay net to slow down consumption? Do you feed good quality hay and want to reduce the waste?
4cm x 4cm is the traditional netting size most commonly used for slow feeding hay. This is our most popular netting as its a good general purpose netting size suitable for the majority of hay types. The perfect size for reducing hay waste as well as slowing consumption when using good quality hay. All of our 4cm nets are made with a robust 60ply netting, green in colour.
6cm Netting
Are you sick and tired of your hay being spread around and wasted?
6cm x 6cm netting is ideal for those who mainly want to stop their horses wasting so much hay. It does slow consumption, but not as much as 3cm or 4cm netting. Suited to all types of hay. including hay of lower quality & cereal hays. This size is also a great choice for old or retired horses, it wont restrict their forage intake too much, but will save you $ on waste. All of our 6cm netting is a robust 60ply netting, black in colour.
NOTE: Prior to use, be sure your horses hooves are larger than the size of the netting. 6cm netting is not recommended for foals or mini’s due to their small feet. If using with small footed animals, you must ensure their feet cannot access the net as there is a chance they may become tangled. Please read our FAQ’s for ideas on using slow feed hay nets with shod/small footed animals.

*Horses/livestock must be free of buckled halters and rugs when using slow feed hay nets. If your horse is shod, the net must be hung out of reach of hooves.
