I made a small trial hay net from wool and it worked well so tomorrow I'm going to collect some baling twine and make a really big net.
It's not too hard, isn't it
For the first one, aim for 5cm holes, and give her some hay on the ground, too. When you notice she's fine with the net, you can make one with smaller holes. Hang it high enough so nobody gets tangled or stuck in it( once you're at the smaller holes, there's less possibility for mishaps.
Going into winter, the grass is dying, very little nutrients.
