My Horse loves his Slow Feeder Hay Net!

My Oldenburg gelding is an easy keeper. I bought him a Natural Alternative Grazer(N.A.G. Bag) and now he has hay all the time, he is happy and he is not getting overweight as he tends to do in the winter. In the past he would park at the round bale and eat 24/7. The wasted hay was gross. He would pull out the best and stomp and poop on the rest. Best of all, he isn't as aggressive to the other horses on the same bale.
I am guessing that my feeding time is cut in half, never mind the spring cleanup of scraping yucky hay. Nag Bags are at Nag Bags | Natural Alternative Grazers | Mandy Blais)

I used a small mesh hay net to get one horse used to clanky noises. I tied a "dreaded plastic bag" holding tin cans on when I tied the net and threw it into the paddock. Horse was pretty snorty, altho the other was blase about it. It didn't take long to learn that in order to eat, a big decision had to be made as to how dangerous the cans were versus hunger.

I use slow feed bags made my cinch chix, used them for the past year or so. I've got the round bail in one also. They've been very effective in slowing down their rate of consumption.
