Slow Feed Hay Nets come in a variety of styles. Just Grazin Custom Nets® quality hay nets are constructed using square holed netting, not diamond netting. We specifically chose square netting as it maintains the square hole shape whether its full of hay or empty. In contrast with diamond netting, as the hay is eaten from the net it slowly closes around the hay and becomes increasingly difficult for the horses to get hay from the net. The holes might start out at 4cm, but close down to a much smaller size. Due to this, horses can become frustrated as the net closes down around the hay once half they’ve eating half of the hay, which may prevent them from getting the last of the hay.

Square holed netting is our choice for top quality horse friendly slow feed hay nets! 👍

Choosing the right size netting for your horses and your situation is an important part in choosing your slow feed hay net. Therefore its important the netting continues to maintain that chosen hole size, irrespective of whether the net is full of hay or only has a small amount of hay left in it. With square holed netting, that is exactly what happens.
