Freedom Feeder slow-feed hay net day size


The original revolutionary 'slow feed' hay net, where the horse grazes the hay the natural way
(See this article for further explanation of slow feeding and its benefits)

Why we chose it:  

  • Long-lasting: Holds around 12-15 hours of hay or haylage for the average horse, making it suitable for twice a day feeding patterns and horses with part-day turnout. 
  • Healthier: Helps avoid problems such as cribbing, colic and ulcers that can occur when horses are regularly left without food.
  • Easy to use: Freedom Feeders are easier than normal hay nets to fill and close up, they have a built-in carabinier clip for attachment.
  • Safe: The carabinier clip is designed to break under major strain - e.g. if the horse becomes entangled in the net.

    "I use the Freedom Feeders and love them. They seem to last about two years of daily abuse for me."

    Mesh size options: Our standard stocked Freedom Feeders come with 1.5" square holes, which is the optimum size for most horses' needs. We can also supply them to special order with larger 2" holes (typically for very large horses needing a higher rate of feed) or smaller 1" holes (typically for ponies under 10hh or laminitics that need more restricted feeding).  With the smaller 1" holes the horse should first have been trained on restricted feeding with 1.5" holes and then graduated to 1".
