Question about hay nets
I am seriously thinking about getting hay nets for my horses for this winter, although I have some real concerns about safety. They are rowdy young geldings (3 &4), and they both have a habit of pawing while they eat. They are also bratty devils, and I envision they would "play" with a hay net and get it wrapped around their neck or something. I am thinking of it because we have had an unusually dry summer and the grazing is already depleted in their field. Since they have had unlimited access to pasture until now they seem to think they will die if they do not have food in front of them 24/7. They have already broken out of the field once (into our yard which adjoins it, luckily), and they are getting plenty to eat, they just eat it so fast I can't keep up. What is the best/safest kind of hay net to buy, and how do you put them up so they cannot be pulled down or tangled in, etc. Or any alternate suggestions would be appreciated, this is getting ridiculous!
