Eco Net LARGE Round Bale 1.5 in sqaures
Horses in nature browse and graze throughout the day, best utilizing their digestive system, but horses in stalls/pens are usually fed 2-3 times a day and this stresses their digestive system. By using an Eco Net, you extend the time it takes to consume their hay (up to 30-50%), without using more hay, thus feeding in a more natural way.
Use Eco Nets to offer 'restricted free-access', they learn that they will never run out of feed (similar to horses on pasture). Provide more nets than there are horses (or use our round bale nets) & never let them run out of feed. The horses learn that their food is always available and the stress associated with getting/guarding food goes away.
The benefit's to the horse owner are many. First the horses' actual consumption rate drops & is extended up to 30% as he is better able to utilize the smaller consistent amounts. Next, as the horses eat, any hay that falls to the ground is now cleaned up like a vacuum cleaner, almost eliminating the waste completely! These things combined make the hay last close to 30-50% longer than previous, on average, depending on types of hay, horses and location. That is a large saving over the course of the winter or year. Also the horses relax, and you will see a significant difference in their attitude and interaction between themselves. Not to mention that their performance, whether trail riding or competition, will improve when they are on the nets.
