All SlowFeeding nets stop the wasting of hay completely.
Chose mesh size in regards to the softness of the hay and how much you want to slow down the eating. Horses that have access to the hay 24/7 can eat as much as they want through any SlowFeeding net but extending their eating time makes them chew the hay better which makes them content before they have eaten too much.
A = 3cm = 1 1/4″. Recommended for soft hay and maximum “slow down effect”.
B = 3.5cm = 1 1/2″. Standard SlowFeeding mesh size that works for all kind of hay and all kind of horses, regardless of age, sex, breed, and activity level.
C = 4cm = 1 3/4″. Recommended for coarse hay. This is the largest mesh size that offers any kind of “SlowFeeding effect”.
D = 5cm = 2″. This is a waste reduction net.
E = 6cm = 2 1/3″ . This is a waste reduction net that doesn’t restrict eating in any way.

Since horses are horses and some of them are known to get themselves in trouble every now and then we don’t accept any responsibility for horses hurting themselves on any products we produce and or sell. We create opportunities and possibilities and it is up to the horse owner to decide if they are to be used or not. We have sold approximately 50 000 nets and have only had a couple of reports of horses hurting themselves. One horse got stuck because the owner did not follow the instructions for how to mount the product and another product have been redesigned because a couple of horses scratched themselves when trying to break into it.
