The slow feed hay net finally arrived!! It's only been a few days, but so far I think this thing is going to be worth the money. The horses figured out how to use it in a single night. I was very impressed. When they eat from it, it really is just like grazing. Here is a short video showing them eating from it. Sorry for the horrid quality... stupid cell phones...
Here are some more pictures.
This next one looks like my hubby has a horse head lol.
He was tightening the net because I wasn't able to tie it completely closed when we first put it on (I'm a wimp). It's going to be so much easier to put on when the tractor is fixed and we can put it on while it's in the air.
The reason Rocky has so much hay in his mouth in the second picture is because hubby pulled some out and gave it to him.
Here is a further out picture so you can see the net. It looks like they've eaten a ton of hay in a short period of time, but it's just because they pulled on it so it fell down on the sides making it look wide and flat. I'm curious to see how long a bale lasts with the net.
Look at how filthy my horse still is. I'm glad for the rain because we've been in a bit of a drought (we were under a burn ban) but I'm so tired of the mud....
Anyway I'll update more after we've fed a bale or two out of it.
