A tremendously popular small holed haynet that can be used for both hay and haylage. The fine meshed holes are sized at 5cm/2", with the result that your fodder lasts longer and less is wasted on the stable floor.
Small holed haynets help digestion
Because a horse is a trickle feeder, he needs to eat regularly and good fodder, that he has to chew well, such as good quality hay or haylage is excellent for this purpose. The very act of chewing starts off his digestion in the best possible way, with saliva taking a key role. The small mesh makes him work for his supper and stops him rushing through his hay, then being left to spend long periods without something to chew.
Less wastage with haynets
Many horses are messy eaters and trail their fodder all over the stable floor. This small holed Shires Haynet, helps eliminate excessive wastage and allows your horse to enjoy his hay or haylage ration in full.
