Description

For instances where you have a unique situation (and our premade Hay nets or Round Bales won’t fit the task), we offer our Deluxe Knotless Netting in Bulk sheet form. This netting is not shaped in any way but is rather a large sheet of netting that you can craft to suit your requirements.

Our Deluxe Knotless Netting is made from a 5mm thick Braided Polypropylene material and is available in a variety of Mesh Sizes and colours.

No Drawstring is included.

Not shaped into a bag: A bulk sheet of netting material only.

 

Which hole size should I choose?

If saving on wastage is your primary concern, then 4cm or 6cm is ideal.
If you are wanting to regulate your animals consumption, reduce boredom and save on wastage then 4cm is the most popular and ideal option.
If you are specifically wanting to slow your animal down, reduce boredom and they have some experience with slow feeders, then the 3cm or 2cm would be your best option.

We have a huge range of Hole Sizes across our Hay Net and Round Bale range. We stock 2cm, 3cm, 4cm and 6cm netting. The following information should help you decide which is the best choice for you and your animals...

2cm (20mm) Holes:
Only available in selected sizes, our 2cm mesh is suited for experienced slow-feed horses that still manage to move quickly through our 3cm bags. We would only recommend looking at 2cm holes for advanced horses and ponies that have used the 3cm bags previously.

3cm (30mm) Holes:
The 3cm is perfect for ponies and experienced animals who have previously used slow feeding nets.  Without experience, the small 3cm holes may cause some frustration for your horses. We would recommend this size for horses who understand how to use a slow feed net but just require a slightly reduced consumption rate.

The 3cm size is also great for reducing boredom, as the reduced consumption rate will keep your horse stimulated for a longer period of time.

4cm (40mm) Holes:
Our 4cm nets are our most common (and popular) size and are accepted by 98% of horses. The 4cm is a great all-rounder that will slow the horses down whilst also saving on wastage. It is therefore the ideal hole size to choose if you are unsure OR just introducing Slow Feed Hay Nets to your horses for the first time. The 4cm hole will slow your horse down, but not so much as to cause frustration. You will reap the benefits of reduced wastage, whilst at the same time providing significant benefits to your horses health.

6cm (60mm) Holes:
Our 6cm nets are primarily designed as a Hay Saver as opposed to being a slow feeder product. It is a popular option for hay that is stalky or not very palatable. Our 6cm nets are great for broodmares, young stock & old horses that don't require slowing down. This size will slow the consumption rate marginally, however more-so it will keep your hay together and minimise wastage.

 

Other considerations to keep in mind when selecting a hay net size include:

The Weather: You may wish to alternate your mesh sizes throughout the year. You may opt to use a 6cm net (to save on wastage but not slow them down too much) in Winter, but in Springtime a more slow feeding option such as 4cm OR 3cm may be a more suitable option.

The Type of Hay: If your hay is stalky, it would be best to opt for a 4cm or 6cm net hole. On the other hand if your hay is very fine, a 3cm net may suit your horses best.

Weight and health of your Horse: This is a very important consideration as a slow feeder can assist with weight control as well as several other conditions.

Livestock and Other Animals: Our Hay Net range is commonly used by owners of animals “other than horses”. They are commonly used for:

  • Cattle
  • Sheep
  • Alpaca’s
  • Goats

Please be mindful of horns (entanglement) and ear tags that can be rubbed out.

The most common size for these animals is our 4cm net. This size provides some slow feeding whilst also minimising hay wastage. Depending on what you’re trying to achieve (just like with horses), both the 3cm and 6cm varieties have also succeeded in the past.

A 4cm sized net is always the best place to start. You can then go up or down a size if needed.

 

Product Caution:

If your horse is shod or not regularly trimmed, you must either tie your hay net high enough OR have a physical barrier between your horse's feet and the hay net. If your horse is shod then simply tie your net up a little higher. You can also put your net inside a box or other device that stops their feet from coming into contact with their hay net.

It is not recommended to leave buckled halters or other types of buckled headgear on your horse when using ANY type of hay net as your horse may get caught.

Similarly, do not let horned animals such as sheep or goats, and cattle with ear tags eat from the hay nets as they may tear the netting, get entangled, or remove the ear tags.

Which Hole Size should I choose?

When choosing a hay net hole size, several factors should be considered. Here is a summary of the key points for each hole size mentioned:

20mm Sized Holes:

  • Suitable for "expert level" ponies that can eat from 30mm hay nets at impressive speeds.
  • Recommended for horses or ponies that have mastered eating from a 30mm hay net.
  • Ideal for feeding Lucerne to greedy horses or ponies.

30mm Sized Holes:

  • Great for voracious eaters, such as ponies, minis, and horses familiar with slow feed hay nets.
  • Laminitic horses usually benefit from 30mm sized hay nets.
  • Relieves boredom for stabled horses or as a backup net for when the first hay net empties.
  • Recommended for gutzy horses, ponies, or livestock, especially with palatable hay or slow feed experience.
  • Not commonly used for goats, cows, or sheep, but some may use it with palatable hay.

40mm Sized Holes:

  • The most popular hole size for slow feeding, accepted by over 90% of horses.
  • Suitable for slightly stalky hay, providing hay-saving benefits and increasing hay longevity.

60mm Sized Holes:

  • Ideal for saving on hay without significant restriction.
  • Commonly used with low-sugar or coarse and stalky hay, great for older horses and cattle.
  • Suitable for pregnant broodmares or younger horses where slow feeding is unnecessary.
  • Caution: Ensure hoof size is larger than netting size for horse safety.

General Considerations:

  • GutzBusta 40mm holes are a good starting point, with flexibility to go up or down in size.
  • Weather and hay type can influence the suitable hole size.
  • Palatability determines the hole size, with more palatable hay allowing for smaller holes.
  • Horse's health status, weight, and workload should be considered when choosing a hole size.
  • 40mm and 60mm sizes are suitable for saving on wastage, while 30mm slows down eating.
  • Monitor horse's response when introducing a new hay net to avoid over-facing.
  • Different livestock can use various hole sizes, with 40mm being common.
  • Different hole sizes are used throughout the year, for various hays, health conditions, and weight management.
  • Be cautious with shod horses and use appropriate hay rings/feeder to prevent entanglement.

Note: Custom sizes are not available for premade hay nets.

Knottless vs Knotted

Knotted hay nets are made from UV-stabilized polyethylene netting and have been in use for 8 years. They come in various ply sizes and are tough, durable, and easily repairable. They have been used by many horses and can last 2 to 6 years. Knotted nets are suitable for soaking hay and do not take on the weight of water. They are available in black and offer hole sizes of 30mm, 40mm, and 60mm.

On the other hand, knotless hay nets are made from high-strength polypropylene and have been available since 2019. They are softer and do take on some weight when soaked. The deluxe knotless nets are considered more luxurious and have become popular due to their softness. They are the strongest on the market with 240 ply and come in hole sizes of 20mm, 30mm, 40mm, and 60mm. Knotless nets are also only available in black.

When it comes to strength and longevity, there isn't a significant difference between knotted and knotless nets. Both types have proven to be tough, durable, and long-lasting. While some horses may prefer one material over the other, there is no way to predict which will suit an individual horse better without trying them. Ultimately, the lifespan of the nets depends on the individual horse and usage. Knotted nets have been used for 2 to 6 years without needing repairs, while the lifespan of knotless nets is still unknown after 3 years of use.
